Health Unit Seeking Public Assistance in Dog Bite 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 on the Bruce Trail, south of the Little Cover parking lot area.

On June 10, 2018, at approximately 12noon, a man was bitten by a dog described as a German Shepard. The dog was being walked by a male accompanied by two young females and an adult female.

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.
