Dog Biting Incident in Stratford

The Perth District Health Unit is looking for a dog involved in a biting incident in Stratford to complete an investigation. The incident took place between the hours of 4pm and 7pm on Monday, May 14 at the corner of Forman Ave and Douglas Street.

The dog was being walked by a woman who had a small female child on a tricycle. The dog is described as a puppy with tannish and black or brindle hair (possibly a pitbull).

The Health Unit is investigating this incident to check if the dog has up-to-date rabies shots. If the dog is not found, the person who was bitten may need to complete a series of rabies shots.

The Perth District Health Unit reminds people to always obtain the contact information of the owners of the animals involved in a biting incident.

Anyone who has any information about this dog should contact the Perth District Health Unit at 519-271-7600 ext 252. After hours or over the weekend, call 1-800-431-2054.
