PRESS RELEASE: Aggressive, stray dogs bite two people at JBSA-Lackland

502nd Air Base Wing Public Affairs

JBSA officials are asking personnel to be on the lookout after stray dogs bit a civilian woman and JBSA firefighter on Jan. 18 at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland.

Both individuals were transported to Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center on base for medical treatment and have been released.

The woman’s affiliation to the base is unknown. The firefighter is a member of the 902nd Civil Engineer Squadron and was a member of the response team.

At 6:16 a.m., JBSA-Lackland Emergency Services received a call from an Army and Air Force Exchange Service employee about three aggressive, stray dogs running loose near the AAFES shoppette on Stewart Street. EMS arrived on the scene at 6:21 a.m. and located the dogs at 6:26 a.m.

EMS successfully captured two of the three dogs — a small dog and a white pitbull. JBSA authorities are still working to capture the third dog, a blue heeler, that is loose on JBSA-Lackland and considered dangerous.

Personnel are advised to stay away from the dog, if spotted, and to call (210) 671-5555.
