Press Release Story

Four people injured in dual dog attack in Linda
(Posted 6/8/2017)

On Tuesday June 6, 2017 just before 6pm, Yuba County Dispatch received three incoming 911 calls regarding two dogs that had just attacked several people walking along Simpson Lane in Linda, just east of the city limits of Marysville, in Yuba County. The two dogs responsible for the attack, one male and one female “Pit Bull” were located and captured by Yuba County Animal Control personnel near the scene of the attack and are currently in quarantine. Four dog bite victims, including an owner of one of the dogs, were injured and sought treatment. Details of their injuries or their hospitalization status are not available at this time. The four persons bitten were Victor Torres age 33 of Marysville, Don Jackson age 43 of Oroville, Kevin Hinman age 59 of Marysville, and owner of the female dog Cycellia Palmer age 33, transient. The owner of the male dog is Mandy Sanchez age 30, also transient. The female dog had recently given birth to a litter of 11 puppies which are currently housed also at Animal Care Services. The male dog had one prior bite offense on record in Yuba County. As for the fate of the dogs involved in the attack, the owners of the dogs responsible can voluntarily surrender their dogs over to the county for euthanasia; or if not surrendered the county can file for a “Vicious Dog” status. If legally designated as “Vicious” by a judge, the dogs would remain detained and euthanized by Animal Care Services. Rabies testing would then be done on the animals post-mortem. Yuba County Animal Care Services has investigated 103 dog bite complaints so far in 2017.
