The Frederick County Health Department is trying to find the owner of a dog that bit a man Saturday afternoon in Frederick.
The man was bitten at Rosedale Park at around 2 p.m. while he was sitting under a tree, according to a news release. The dog jumped on the man and bit him, according to the release.
The dog was a brown, pit bull-type dog, according to the release. The man who was bitten did not see anyone with the dog at the time.
Anyone with information about the dog or its owner is asked to call authorities so the man can avoid potentially unnecessary and expensive post-exposure rabies vaccinations, according to the release.
If the animal is determined to be in good health 10 days after the bite, the man will not need the vaccinations.
The owner, or anyone with information, should call Frederick County Animal Control at 301-600-1544.
