CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The Laramie Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating a dog and its owner after an incident was reported last weekend.

The LPD says that on October 5, 2021 at around 2:00 p.m., a woman was bitten by a medium-sized mixed-breed dog with black, brown and white fur in the 1900 block of VanBuren Street. The dog was unleashed, appeared uncollared and no owners seemed to be in the area.
