Dog that bit Kitchener toddler declared dangerous animal
Posted February 1, 2010 The Record.com KITCHENER — A dog that bit a two-year-old boy in the face has been declared a dangerous animal by officers with the Kitchener-Waterloo Humane Society. Â That means the dog’s owners will have to abide by several rules if they want to keep the animal, including caging the dog when children are around, keeping a muzzle on it and having it microchipped. Â The toddler and his parents were visiting an apartment on Queen Street South in the late afternoon Saturday when the homeowner’s 30-pound Jack Russell terrier cross bit him. Â Kathy Innocente, spokesperson for the Humane Society, said the dog was startled before biting the child. Â The toddler lost the end of his nose and was taken to hospital. He underwent plastic surgery Monday.
