If the vagrant ran away then take the dog into custody and to the shelter to be adopted out to a better environment.

There's currently a curfuffle on NextDoor about a neighborhood dog who attacks other dogs while on leash and nipped another dog owner who was protecting her pet. Badly behaved, biting dogs aren't welcome anywhere. A dog's snapping jaws are at child level. I personally know three kids now in elementary school with scars from someone's "baby". I understand why a women "living rough" would want a dog for protection against the rest, but even so, it's her responsibility to train her dog.

The Vicious Dog ordinances cover all dogs that bite or act in a threatening manner even if on leash. Plus homeowner's insurance hate to pay out claims on irresponsible dog owners. Can be a very bad thing for the dog owner if the other person pursues it.

This is another emotional attack on the homeless/poor/different. Had the incident involved an "housed" person diatribes about the affluent, entitled and irresponsible dog owners would not have flowed out. (And, yes, I have encountered many loose dogs whose owners let them walk my neighborhood and who, when asked to leash their animal, give out with a lot of hostile language about their rights and the good behavior of their dog and such).

Was there a description of the dog? I was bit by a German shepherd who belonged to a woman who lived in her van. There was no way to find her to report the attack.

The van didn't have a license number? Or maybe you were too busy dealing with the trauma of the bite to get it?

Poor dog. Probably biting purely out of fear and now what will happen? Quarantine? Euthanization?

Voter backlash coming this November, when we elect new city council members. Game's over.

"Tell the suspect plainly that you are making a citizen's arrest and that you are holding him or her until police arrive. Call the police. Ask explicitly for his or her cooperation until police arrive. Avoid using force, if at all possible, and use it to the minimum possible otherwise." "A citizen's arrest is an arrest made by a person who is not acting as a sworn law-enforcement official. In common law jurisdictions, the practice dates back to medieval England and the English common law, in which sheriffs encouraged ordinary citizens to help apprehend law breakers."

Probably a ton of liability issues involved in one of these. I would just follow the person until the cops arrived.

Yes, but not recommended by any means. California, Penal Code Section 837 states that "a private person may arrest another: (1) For a public offense committed or attempted in his presence. (2) When the person arrested has committed a felony, although not in his presence. (3) When a felony has been in fact committed, and he has reasonable cause for believing the person arrested to have committed it."

Security Guards are trained to make Citizens Arrest. Guards are required to pass a Powers of Arrest course .

It's been quite the 24 hours for transient crimes against the public. Arson, cell phone theft from juveniles, strong arm robbery, out of control dog bite-and-run......ugh
