Puppy wounded in Gyro beach dog attack

Saanich police are looking to identify the owners of a small dog that attacked another dog in Cadboro Bay

Saanich police are looking to identify the owners of a small dog that attacked another dog in Cadboro Bay on Sunday, March 10.

A woman was walking along Gyro Beach with her pit bull terrier puppy around 3:45 p.m. when a small black and white dog, believed to be a young Labrador-cross, ran up and attacked her puppy.

“It bit her dog numerous times in the face, resulting in six deep lacerations,” said Sgt. Steve Eassie.

The owners of the second dog haven’t been identified, and police would like to speak with them. It is believed the Lab is owned by a middle-aged couple. They are believed to have been walking with a group of three or four other adults at the time.

“We want to remind everyone that if their dog is, in fact, off leash, it has to be under control at all times,” Eassie said. “What we mean by that is if a command is given to the dog, the dog has to obey the command. Our intention of that is to prevent further incidents like this from occurring.”

Police are asking anyone with information on this incident to call 250-475-4321.
