Lambton public health is asking the public for help contacting the owner of a dog that bit a man who was at the beach in Camlachie Monday evening.
The public health agency said the bite happened at about 7:30 p.m. at a public beach at the end of Dalrymple Street.
The dog was not on a leash and is described as a red pit bull with a white patch on its chest. It was with a man, woman and two children.
If the owner can’t be reached to verify the dog’s health status, the victim will require post-exposure rabies shots, the agency said.
It’s asking anyone with information about the dog and its owner to contact Lambton public health at 519-383-8331, ext. 3580, or toll-free at 1-800-667-1839.
