SHEBOYGAN -- The Sheboygan Police Department is requesting that the owner of a tan and white pitbull (or similar breed) that bit a woman on July 9, 2013 to contact the police. The incident took place at approximately 7:30 p.m. in the 1100 block of Michigan Avenue.
The woman was bit on the arm after kneeling down to greet the dog, which was on a leash. She described the bite as playful.
