Students raising money for attack victim

Timberline Secondary students are raising money for a woman and her dog who were injured in an attack outside the school

Timberline Secondary students are raising money for a woman and her dog who were injured in an attack outside the school.

The high school students and staff, in conjunction with North Island College, are hosting two upcoming fundraisers to help pay for vet bills expected to be around $1,000.

“We’re trying to raise the full $1,000,” said Timberline Principal Jeremy Morrow. “We’re going to do a Dogs for Dog, where we’ll be selling hot dogs at the school next week. We’re also doing a coin drive within the school.”

Morrow said both students and staff are taking on the fundraisers as a “compassionate gesture.”

Morrow confirmed the woman – who was working on behalf of Timberline and North Island College – and her dog were injured by another dog on Tuesday, Nov. 10 at approximately 6:30 p.m. Social media reports have identified the woman as a security guard.

Morrow said because the incident is under investigation by the RCMP, he couldn’t comment on specific details but he did confirm the incident happened near the main entrance to the school on the Dogwood Street side of the building.

Morrow said “my understanding is that she’ll be having an extended stay in the hospital,” because of the injuries she sustained and that any extra money the school raises will be given to the woman for her own bills.

Campbell River RCMP did not return a request for comment before the Mirror went to press.
