Baltimore city animal control searched the park Tuesday after receiving a report about the bite. They were unable to locate the dog.
“According to the injured party, the dog was not with an owner and it approached while she was walking her dog and caused an injury. She stated she had not previously seen the dog.” animal control told WJZ in an statement.
Patterson Park neighbors often debate about unleashed dogs on the neighborhood’s Facebook group.
City law however requires dogs to have a leash when being walked on city sidewalks and in the park.
