Person Bitten by Unknown Dog near Stone Barn Drive and Timber Green Drive, Urbana, Maryland, on Wednesday, May 15, 2024. Seeking Owner of Dog.

A woman was bitten by an unknown dog on Wednesday, May 15, 2024, around 6:30 p.m. The incident occurred on the path near Stone Barn Drive and Timber Green Drive in Urbana, Maryland. The biting dog is described as a medium black dog with white paws. The bite occurred when the victim was walking on the path. The dog was being walked by a tall, thin man with a child.

Contact is needed to confirm the animal’s health and location so that it can be quarantined. The quarantine would be for 10 days and usually occurs in the owner’s home. If the animal is verified to be in good health 10 days after the bite, it will be allowed to resume normal activity, and the victim can avoid receiving unnecessary and expensive post-exposure rabies vaccinations. The Frederick County Health Department is asking that the owner or anyone who has information about the animal please contact Frederick County Animal Control at 301- 600-1544.

If you or someone in your family is bitten or scratched by a dog or cat, obtain contact information from the animal’s owner so that appropriate action can be taken. Report bites to Animal Control at 301-600-1544. Report possible human exposure to Community Health Services at 301-600-3342. For general rabies questions, call Environmental Health Services at 301-600-1717. Visit https://health.frederickcountymd.gov/RABIES for more information.
