Owen Sound Police are trying to locate the owner of a dog that allegedly bit a 16-year-old girl.
Police say at around 3:30 p.m. yesterday afternoon the teen was walking home from school along 3rd Avenue East when a woman walking a dog approach.
City Police say the leashed dog jumped up onto the teenager and bit her in the right elbow area, breaking the skin.
Police say it's believed the person walking the dog did not know the animal actually bit the teen.
Police need to speak with the owner of the dog in order to provide follow up information to the Grey Bruce Health Unit in relation to the Animal Exposure.
The breed of the dog is unknown but is described as tall, thin, white with brown spots, floppy ears and a normal length tail.
Anyone with information about the dog or owner is asked to contact the investigating officer, PC Tom Harris #181 at (519) 376-1234 extension 181 or [email protected] Alternatively citizens can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or submit a secure web-tip through Crime Stoppers at www.cstip.ca.
