Dog Bites Man in Paisley

Paisley | by Manny Paiva  

Health officials looking for dog and owner to check for rabies.

There's been another dog bite in our region -- this time in Paisley.

The Grey Bruce Health Unit wants to speak to the owner of a black lab that bit a man on the arm while walking on the Paisley rail trail bridge on December 24th.

Officials say the man walking the leashed dog had long hair and was wearing a red jacket -- and the dog lunged at the victim.

The incident was only reported today.

Staff at the Health Unit need to confirm the dog is not infectious with rabies, so the victim can avoid post exposure rabies treatment.

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