MALAGASH - Pugwash RCMP are looking for a dog that viciously attacked a senior last week at a beach in Malagash.
The incident happened around 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 19 at MacLean's Beach when a man was attacked and severely bitten by a German shepherd.
The man was treated at the Lillian Fraser Memorial Hospital in Tatamagouche before being transferred to the Colchester Regional Hospital in Truro.
The dog was on the beach with two women and two small children. The women, who appeared to own the dog, identified herself as "Monica." The dog has a full dark coat but had no collar, tag or leash.
Before the man and his wife left the beach they warned a young woman and two small children, who were approaching the beach, not to go any further because of the dog.
The Mounties would like to speak to the young woman or anyone who might know the owner of the dog. There are medical reasons for making the urgent request.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Pugwash detachment at 243-2181.

Organizations: MacLean's, Lillian Fraser Memorial Hospital in Tatamagouche, Colchester Regional Hospital

Geographic location: Malagash, Truro

    We take our little dog to Blue Sea Beach (always on a leash) and it is amazing the number of dogs that are left to wander sometime.

    One incident comes to mind immediately. We took our little dog (20Lbs) on a leash to the beach after a long hot day a few weeks ago. While I went back to the car to get something my fiancee and puppy were met by another couple and three Aussie-shepard-like dogs running free on their way back to their vehicle. The female owner snapped at my fiancee saying, PICK UP YOUR DOG AND MOVE!!! OUR DOGS ARE COMING THROUGH AND THEY DON'T GET ALONG WITH OTHER DOGS! . My fiancee was forced to pick up our dog, who was following the rules of the beach, to let three potentially dangerous dogs UNLEASHED pass through. Let's just say when I returned from the car I was livid!

    Beaches are FULL of people these days so it is more of a reason than ever to follow the rules.

    Maybe I shouldn't say this, but maybe people was get the hint if a child was harmed by the dog instead.
