Must Read

On July 6, the Fairfax County Health Department reported that a man was mowing a friend’s lawn in the 900 block of Glyndon Street, S.E., when he was bitten by his friend’s dog, Vienna police said.

A Vienna police animal-control officer made several attempts to contact the dog’s owner, and the man who was bitten, in order to get further information on the animal and to quarantine the dog.

The 10-day quarantine expired and the officer was unable to verify the dog’s health status. Police advised the Health Department of the situation, and the agency will attempt to contact the man to recommend post-rabies treatment.
