Public Assistance Request Dog Biting Incident          

 

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 Durham, Ontario. On Wednesday November 20, 2019, between 8:00 am and 9:00 am, a man was bitten by a medium sized white poodle. The man was walking with his own dog at a park located off South Street West and Countess Street South when a woman walking with the poodle and another dog, possibly a husky mixed breed, intercepted the walk.

 

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.1321.
