2 Children Attacked By Dogs In Calgary over weekend.

Calgary police have laid charges after two separate dog attacks on children over the weekend.

The first attack happened on Saturday, when police were called to reports that a pit bull had attacked a three-year-old at a home in Sunnyside.

“There were four young people (ages three, six, 14 and 17) as well as the dog owner in the backyard at the time of the incident. As the dog owner turned to go inside, the dog attacked and bit the child,” said Alvin Murray, Acting Director for Animal & Bylaw Services, in a release.

The child was taken to hospital and treated for a large wound to the head.

In the second incident, police were called to a home in Midnapore on Sunday after a adult chow/shepherd-mix pinned down and bit a one-year-old child while the child was having a snack.

According to police, both dogs were seized and will be held for 10 days while they undergo behavioural assessments. Neither dog has displayed aggressive behaviour in the past.

Both owners have been charged with a dog biting a person.
