What do I do if I have been bitten by an animal or if my pet has bitten someone?
State law requires all animal bites to be reported to local animal control or the Health Department within 24 hours. If the animal has bitten and run off, make sure you can give an accurate description of the animal and which direction it went. An officer will respond and try to obtain the suspect animal. If your pet has bitten, report it to Animal Services and arrangements will be discussed for quarantine. Any animal that has bitten or has been bitten will be required to be placed on quarantine for a minimum of 10 days from the bite.
