Colorado law enforcement has identified two women whose dog they believe bit a customer in the face at a Home Depot, causing “severe injuries” requiring facial surgery.

Authorities say they were able to identify the women with the help of the public after posting several photos of them on various social media sites, although they did not release the names of the dog owners.

According to a press release from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, sheriff’s deputies and officers from the county’s Animal Control Division responded to a Home Depot on March 31 in the 1000 block of Rancho Road in Evergreen, at about 25 miles west of Denver.

Investigators say the two dog owners brought their dog to the home repair retailer as part of its training program. Dog owners often bring their animals to pet-friendly establishments such as Home Depot to help them socialize by interacting with other people and animals.

Authorities say the two women explained to the victim that they were training their dog and asked the victim to give him a treat.
