2019 Bite Blotter

Animal Law Enforcement receives reports of aggressive domestic animals every day. More than 1,000 animal bites were reported to Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region in El Paso County last year alone - that's about three every day. Many other bites go unreported. Below is just a sampling of moderate to fatal domestic animal bite reports this year. Every report of a potential dangerous animal is investigated and appropriate action is taken to best resolve each situation.

To report a dangerous/aggressive animal situation involving a domestic pet, call Animal Law Enforcement at 719.302.8798 or call 911. If you are active military, contact law enforcement on your base/post. All bites in El Paso County, including encounters with wildlife, must be reported to the health department.
