Evening walks are part of an ev­ery­day rou­tine for Jonathan La­pointe-Vil­leneuve.

The young teacher en­joys the peace and tran­quil­ity of a walk through town at the end of the day.

Re­cently that tran­quil­ity was dis­rupted due to an at­tack on him by two dogs that were on the loose.

“I de­cided to walk on the road be­hind Ta­ma­rack. It was a dark evening and there was less traf­fic there,” La­pointe-Vil­leneuve told The Au­rora. “All of a sud­den I saw two big dogs chas­ing each other, and I wasn’t too con­cerned.”

But in a mo­ment, the dogs turned and ran to­wards La­pointe-Vil­leneuve.

“I’m not nor­mally afraid of dogs, but this time they ran and jumped on me, and one bit me in the thigh,” he said of the in­ci­dent.

La­pointe-Vil­leneuve said Jonathan La­pointe-Vil­leneuve pre­pares the med­i­ca­tion he was sub­scribed af­ter be­ing at­tacked by dogs while out for a walk.

he was a bit con­cerned, and shocked, but some­body had seen what hap­pened and the po­lice ap­peared. He gave them in­for­ma­tion he hoped they could use.

Then there was the next part of the or­deal.

Bit­ten by a dog, with no in­for­ma­tion on what dog it was or if it was vac­ci­nated, La­pointe-Vil­leneuve
