Surveillance video shows at 6:30 a.m. this morning March 14, a white adult female with blonde hair tying a tan colored pit bull to a pole outside the shelter. The woman made no attempt to contact anyone at the shelter. She was driving a grey SUV (possibly a Honda Passport). The dog was very aggressive and growling at people and other dogs who were lining up for a vaccination clinic held at the shelter. When an ACW officer went to approach the dog, it lunged and attempted to bite the officer. It got free from its leash and ran off toward Hancock Road. ACW officers have been patrolling the area, but have not yet located the dog.
If anyone has any information on the whereabouts of this dog or the female suspect, please contact the Bullhead City Animal Care & Welfare Shelter at (928) 763-6000.
