Public Health Seeking Information About Dog Biting Incident in Kincardine
The Grey Bruce Health Unit is seeking assistance from the public in finding the owner of a dog involved in a biting incident in Kincardine.
On February 7, 2012 at approximately 9:00 a.m., a man was bitten by a dog. The incident occurred in the soccer field adjacent to the Kincardine Dog Park when the man was attempting to separate his own dog from the dog which bit him. The dog is described as a black, 10 month old German Shepherd. The dog was in the care of a woman at the time of the incident.
Staff of the Grey Bruce Health Unit need to confirm that 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.
