Meaford | by Manny Paiva  

Health Unit looking for dog owner to confirm the animal does not have rabies.

There's been a dog biting incident in Meaford.

A teenager was walking near St. Vincent and Margaret Streets in Meaford around 5 PM on Monday when he was bitten by a dog.

The dog is described as a black, white and brown beagle.

Health officials say the dog was one of three dogs that were being walked by two people.

Staff of the Grey Bruce Health Unit want to find the dog owner to confirm the animal is not infectious with rabies.

That way, the teenage boy can avoid post-exposure rabies treatment.

If you have any information related to this incident, please contact the Grey Bruce Health Unit at 519-376-9420.
