The woman, who is in her 60s, was approached by a large black dog and was attacked after she fell down while attempting to flee.

Two other dogs joined the attack once she was on the ground, according to the release, and the woman sustained injuries including bite marks and lacerations.

She was taken to hospital where she was treated and released, and CPS states that she is still recovering from her injuries.

Police have since charged 31-year-old Satnam Dhaliwal and 26-year-old Dharmender Khosa with one count each of criminal negligence causing bodily harm. The two men are expected to appear in court on Friday, March 8.

The dogs are currently in the custody of Calgary Community Standards and are under review, states the release.
