Owner of dog that reportedly mauled smaller dog at Mount Doug comes forward, cooperating with officers


At that point, Anastasiades said the other dog owner leashed his pet. The woman rushed to a veterinary hospital, but ultimately, ended up having to put her dog down. She also suffered minor injuries.

“It is a public safety concern because a person was bit by this dog,” said Anastasiades.

“This is an example of what we believe to be not effective control,” said Anastasiades.

Effective control means the dog must remain within the owner’s sight and immediately return when called.

The penalty for breaking a law in the municipality’s animal bylaw is a minimum fine of $100.

The file is under investigation by Saanich Animal Control.
