Grey Bruce Public Health is requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the owner of a dog that was involved in a biting incident on Friday, May 17, 2024, in Saugeen Shores.

At about 9:15 a.m., a woman was bitten by a brown-and-white, medium-sized dog, believed to be a Springer Spaniel, while the woman was running on the boardwalk at the Southampton beach, between Adelaide Street and Chantry View Drive.
