The Winneshiek County Sheriff’s Office is requesting assistance in locating and identifying a dog and its owner. A local resident was recently attacked and sustained a serious injury to her leg while on the bike trail near Freeport. The dog was described as an all-white, muscular, short-haired, medium- sized dog around 50-60 pounds. The owner was described as a thin, white male, with short brown hair in his late 50’s or 60’s. When the victim asked the owner what his name was, he responded with “Julius Rambunctious.” The owner then took his dog and fled.

If you have any information regarding the identity of the dog and/or its owner, please contact the Winneshiek County Sheriff’s Office at (563) 382-4268. We have recently taken several reports of dog attacks throughout the county. (These incidents do not appear to be related.) If you are a victim or witness an incident, please call the Sheriff’s Office immediately.

Please note we do not monitor our Facebook page on a 24/7 basis, so do not message us on Facebook for an incident requiring immediate assistance.
