Owner of dog in biting incident needs to come forward

The Grey Bruce Health Unit is seeking assistance from the public in finding the owner of a dog involved in a biting incident that occurred in Owen Sound, Ontario. At about 5:15 pm, Tuesday, February 25, 2020, a woman was bitten by a large chocolate lab named Whiskey. The incident occurred at the Owen Sound Leash-Free Dog Park on 1st Avenue East. The dog first bit the victim’s dog and then the victim, when she tried to intervene. The dog was in the care of a woman who apologized but did not leave her name or contact information.

Staff of the Grey Bruce Health Unit need to confirm the dog is not infectious with rabies. By verifying the health of the dog, the victim can avoid receiving the post-exposure rabies treatment. If you have any information related to this incident, please contact the Grey Bruce Health Unit at 519-376-9420 ext.1355.
