RCMP Looking for dog owner

The Campbell River RCMP are looking for the owner of a dog that bit a four-year-old on April 11.

Campbell River RCMP received a complaint from a concerned mother whose four-year-old child had just been bit by an off leash dog at the Sportsplex around 2:30 p.m. The bite resulted in a puncture wound to the child’s leg.

The owner of the dog saw the bite occur and gave a quick apology, but then left the area. The dog is described as a gold coloured, short haired, possibly a Vizsla or similar. The owner is described as a brown haired female in her 20’s, approximately 5’6 and 140 pounds.

“The Sportplex is not an off-leash area for dogs and it is frequented by families. We would like the public to please respect the city bylaw and families who play in the park. Even if you feel your dog is well behaved and under control, many people fear dogs, especially children. There is an off leash area in Campbell River for dog owners to give their dogs a chance to run free and socialize,” said Const. Sara Clark.

RCMP would like anyone who has any information on this incident to contact Campbell River RCMP at (250) 286-6221.
