Charges laid in Vermilion dog attack

Charges have been laid in the case of a dog attack in Vermilion Provincial Park.
According to a news release from the Vermilion RCMP, on September 22, at approximately 7:15 p.m. a 70-year-old woman was walking her small poodle in the Provincial Park, just north off the Park Drive residential area, when a larger dog came up the pathway and attacked her dog.

The other canine is described as a yellow lab or retriever-type dog.

The woman tried to defend her dog for several minutes before a man came up from the path and took control of the dog. A second man, walking a brindle-coloured boxer-type dog, also arrived on scene shortly after. It appeared that the men were known to one another and had been in the park together. They left without providing any assistance to the women or her dog.

The pair are described as white men in their late 20s or early 30s. Police believe that it may be that the males were unaware of the extent of the injuries to the poodle.

A release issued on Tuesday stated that the subject involved in the attack had been identified. Further questions indicated that the person identified is being charged with having a dog off leash in a provincial park. The court date for the individual, who is not being named at this time, is set for December 5 in Vermilion Provincial Court.
