Public Assistance Request Dog Bite


The Grey Bruce Health Unit is seeking assistance from the public in finding the owner of two dogs involved in a biting incident that occurred in Meaford. The incident occurred on September 29, 2020, in the afternoon. The victim was riding a bike north on the rail trail near Storybook Park Road. Two large dogs came up from behind and one dog bit the victim. The dogs are described as pit bull-like, one dog is black and the other is grey with black speckled spots.


Staff of the Grey Bruce Health Unit need to confirm the dogs are not infectious with rabies. By verifying the health of the dogs, the victim can avoid receiving the post-exposure rabies treatment.
