Dog attacks south Georgia woman

January 14, 2007

Americus--A south Georgia woman is viciously attacked by a dog during an evening stroll and she's now warning others to be careful.

Rhonda Davis says the attack happened on Murphy Mill Road in Americus at the southern most part of the Georgia Southwestern Golf and Conference Center.

She says she did nothing to provoke the dog.  Several adults nearby managed to pull the animal off of her.

Davis was bitten seven times.  Several of those marks include on her hands.  The dog also punctured her right calf muscle.

She's currently undergoing a series of rabies shots.  Davis says the dog still remains on the loose.

It's described as tan or gold in color, a mixed breed with possibly Hound, Labrador, or Rottweiler in it.

The dog weighs about seventy pounds and has long ears with a wide head and snout.

If you spot the dog, you're asked to call Americus Animal Control at 229-924-3678.
