Loose dog alert
From the Fredericksburg Police daily crime report:
1000 block Idlewild Blvd, 2/2 4:00 pm. A couple walking in the neighborhood
encountered another dog running loose. When the husband attempted to discourage the loose
dog from following them, the dog attacked him, biting him in the face and forearm. The wife
also received less severe bites and abrasions on her face. Both victims required treatment at
Mary Washington Hospital for their injuries. The dog was described as medium to large in
size, with brindle coloring and wearing a brown or black collar with tags. The victims
described the dog as possibly being a mixed breed pit bull, but the shape of the dog’s nose was
longer and narrower than a typical pit bull. Anyone with information regarding this animal
should contact the Fredericksburg Police Department at (540)373-3122.
