My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: Virginia
I wasn't sure where to put this question. about 10 days ago someones child was bitten by a German Shepherd in our common are of our condos. He is ok...It was just a scratch.
That night an Animal Control officer came by and asked if we had a German shepherd and why he was asking. We told him we do, but we had not walked the dog that day yet as we had both been working. He thanked us and left.
The next day fliers were placed on the door of each house saying a child had been bitten by a German Shepherd that was walking with a blonde woman and they were looking for them to make sure the dog does not have rabies. The description does indeed fit my wife and dog, but obviously was not us.
Today I was working at home and the animal control office called me then came by and asked if he could see the dog. I questioned why and he said "We are checking all neighborhood dogs for signs of illness"
I let him look over the fence where our dog was in the back yard. He said "Thanks" and left
This seems super suspicious to me. If we already told him it was not our dog, why does he need to see it? Do you think this is the end of it, or will I need to get an attorney?
Thanks a bunch for your replies!
