Thank you

Motorist and RCMP help resident confronted with two dogs while out walking

I live by the college and the forestry farm and have for the past 20 years. Each morning, I go for a good five-kilometre walk in the college area. Recently, as I approached College Way and Reservoir Road, I was met by two large dogs.

One appeared to be a pit bull and the other a Rotti-cross of some sort. At any rate, they started to approach me aggressively.

One came around behind me and the other stayed at the front on me. I waved a vehicle down and thank goodness two vehicles stopped.

The young woman, a paramedic, let me in and the dogs started coming to the vehicle. The incident was called into the RCMP by the paramedic.

Fortunately, no one was hurt. This kind young woman drove me home and I then phoned a number of other residents in our area that walk each morning.

This was very unnerving to me and I would ask all dog owners, large or small, please keep your dogs at home where they cannot get away or on leashes if you are with them.

Thanks to the kind, young woman for coming to my rescue and thanks to the RCMP for following up.
