Cop bitten by dog during service call

Posted July 11, 2017

A Nottawasaga OPP officer required hospital treatment for a dog bite on the hand that occurred last Friday morning in the process of serving a no trespass notice to a male at the residence.

OPP were called to a home on the 15th Line in New Tecumseth on July 7 at 11:47 am.

"Officers attended the address and could hear dogs barking within the residence. It is alleged, the suspect, released two aggressive dogs into the yard. During the incident a Nottawasaga OPP officer was injured as the result of a dog bite," according to the police report.

"The officer was transported by County of Simcoe Paramedics to an area hospital for treatment of a serious bite to their hand.  Immediately after the attack, a male exited the residence and refused to cooperate with restraining his animals. Ultimately, there were no injuries to the dogs."

An 81-year-old New Tecumseth man was arrested and charged with Assault a peace officer with a weapon; and Assault peace officer - Cause bodily harm.

The accused, who was jailed for seven months in 2006 after pleading guilty to a 2005 manslaughter at the same address on the 15th Line, was released from custody and will attend a future court date at the Ontario Court of Justice in Bradford.
