Youth bitten by dog

On February 25, 2014 at 3:30 p.m., a 14-year-old male was walking in Hamilton Park when he was bitten by a dog being walked by what appeared to be a mother and daughter. The dog was on a long leash and is described as a medium sized, long haired dog and having a light coloured coat.

The mother appeared to be older with light blonde hair. The daughter was described to be approximately 7-years-old with long dark hair, wearing glasses and a hi-visibility vest on top of a purple winter coat.

The owners could be heard yelling the name "Digger" at the dog during the incident. As a result, the young male suffered two puncture wounds on his right leg. The parents of the youth are seeking the owner's help, in coming forward with the dog's veterinary history to establish if any medical treatment is needed due to the bite.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Cst. N. Pickard at 519-824-1212 at extension #7422.

Dogs must be under a person's control at all times (on and off leash) and kept at least 1 metre from other people or animals.
