The City of Richmond has filed an application in provincial court to have a dog that attacked two women in a park two weeks ago destroyed.

Spokesperson Ted Townsend says the dog has officially been deemed a danger.

“We can hold the dog until the court determines the outcome of our application.”

The city needs to go to court if the owner did not agree to having the Rottweiler-Husky cross put down.



Police had described attacked as ‘horrifying’

Two weeks ago, the dog went after a 21-year-old woman as she tried to protect her young nephew. She was sent to hospital in critical condition with more than 100 bites.

Another woman was injured, as was a neighbour who had tried to intervened.
