The rabies vaccine has been updated and is now only 5 shots in the arm and no more painful than any other injection. Probably a risk of side effects but better than old shots.

If your dog’s rabies vaccine is current, and you have a license , or get one, you may quarantine your own dog at home. Dog bites are usually situational. This report says nothing about the circumstances of the bite. If this dog was a stray yes it will go to SB Animal Services and be held on a 10 day quarantine.

This is not always true. If the bite was not severe, or not on a human, AC has discretion to quarantine at home or at a vet. Those dogs that attacked their caregiver a few years ago were definitely not given that option.

10-day quarantine for the dog. Probably at the County shelter and they usually don't ever get taken out for exercise in that situation. Another reason to make sure your dog doesn't bite anyone, especially an officer. They may also deem the dog as "dangerous" and euthanize him, depending on the severity of the bite.

There was an suv pulled over at that time. I would assume the dog was inside the vehicle.

If the dog is not found and tested, this could mean a very painful round of anti-rabies injections for the officer. Loose dogs are a very serious public health hazard. Guard them well and keep their shots current..

Large and persistent vagrant camps in this area by the RR tracks. Any connection?
