MAN ATTACKED BY TWO DOGS
LABRADOR WEST — Evening walks are part of an everyday routine for Jonathan Lapointe-Villeneuve. Recently that tranquility was disrupted due to an attack on him by two dogs that were on the loose. In a moment, the dogs turned and ran towards Lapointe-Villeneuve. Lapointe-Villeneuve said 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 then visited the hospital, receiving seven injections.
Then he had to endure a regimen of medication. He also had to return to the hospital for more injections. Lapointe-Villeneuve says pet owners need to be more responsible. He hopes people who own pets will learn from this and respect the fact it is important to keep their pets under control. He says even at times, pets on walking trails where they are supposed to be on a leash, are set free.
