Edmonds police are looking for the owner of a pit bull/shepherd mix dog who bit a 6-year-old Shoreline boy at the north end of Brackett’s Landing beach on the Edmonds waterfront last Thursday, August 19.

According to Edmonds police spokesman Sgt. Shane Hawley, after the dog, who was off leash, bit the child in the face, the owner left the scene with the dog and didn’t identify himself. The boy’s mother happened to be taking a cell phone video of the boy at the time of the attack, and police captured photos from that video.

The child was taken to Swedish Edmonds following the attack for treatment of punctures to the area around his mouth, chin and arm, Hawley said.

If you can identify the owner, described as a white male, contact Animal Control Officer Debbie Dawson at 425-771-0205.
