Another dangerous dog attack today, this time in Langley.
According to Langley RCMP Sergeant Alexandra Mulvihill, just after 4:30 p.m., a man was walking his dog in Nole Booth Park when a second dog came out of the nearby bushes, unleashed.
The unleashed dog bit the man’s lab first on the shoulder, then on the neck, and Mulvihill says what came next was an act of defence.
“In the process of trying to save his own dog, and get this other dog off of his, the other dog was killed.”
The attacking dog’s owner was not present, but has been identified. The dog had escaped from the backyard of a local residence.
Mulvihill says the attacking dog was not a pit bull, but a Cane Corso.
“It looks to be quite a muscular dog.”
The owner suffered injuries as well, and there is no update on his condition or that of his dog at this time.
