RCMP Report: Arson attempt in Spilli

A Radium man is being sought for attempted arson after an incident at a home in Spillamacheen.

Dog attacks on 10th St.

 

A woman sustained minor injuries when a dog attacked and bit her on April. 12. It was the second time the woman was bitten by the dog in the span of a couple days. RCMP have deemed the dog to be dangerous and have recommended to the conservation officer that the animal be destroyed.

The dog was not roaming free, but was said to have gotten away from its owners during both incidents.

The RCMP would like to remind dog owners that they can be charged with criminal negligence in cases where their pet is off leash and attacks an individual.
