Page County Sheriff Lyle Palmer is asking for your help in locating a dog who bit a man after he freed it from a trap. Palmer says Steven Wiese, of Shenandoah, was releasing a dog from a trap Tuesday afternoon, when the brown, mixed-breed animal wearing a yellow collar, bit him on the hand, causing an injury. The incident happened about five-miles north of Essex, on D Avenue, near the Montgomery/Page County line.

Authorities contacted residents in the area in an attempt to locate the dog and/or its owner, but neither was found. If you have any information about a dog fitting the description mentioned, please call the Page County Sheriff’s Office at 712-542-5193.
