We finally put together more complete information on the VR worker who was bitten by a dog.

First, though, please help Ann find the dog. If they don’t the woman who was bitten is facing a series of rabies shots.

It was a husky that bit a lift operator at the VISTA Bahn at Vail Village at around 12:30 p.m,. Friday, July 5:

Witnesses saw a gentleman tie up a husky and a golden retriever next to each other on the village side of the lift area in the late morning.

A couple of hours later, the husky bit the lift operator who had come to the dogs in an attempt to comfort them because they seemed hot and were barking. She had done the same a half hour to 45 minutes earlier with no incident.

While she kneeled to comfort the husky, it bit her on the left shoulder and her left leg near the knee. She was taken to the hospital, and the person who had tied up the dogs retrieved the dogs sometime later without being noticed.

The problem is that the lift operator faces painful and lengthy treatment for possible rabies, a standard precaution when an animal that bit a person cannot be found.

So Vail Resorts is anxious to find the owner of the dog. They ask that the man or someone who might know him call Vail’s lift dispatch office at 479-4170 between 7 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Or they can call the Vail Daily at 949-0555, Ext. 604, or to leave a message, ext. 600.

A Woman’s Ultimate Fantasy

In a recent Harris On-line poll 38,562 men across the US were asked to identify a woman’s ultimate fantasy. 97.8% of the respondents said that a woman’s ultimate fantasy is to have two men at once. While this has been verified by a recent sociological study, it appears that most men do not realize that in this fantasy, one man is cooking and the other is cleaning.
