RCMP Report: Wolf Centre dog attack investigation complete

Golden/Field RCMP have concluded their investigation about a dog attack that happened at the Northern Wildlife Wolf Centre in April.

On September 26, at approximately 8:30 p.m., a 17-year-old female was assaulted as she loaded her groceries into her green van at the Overwaitea Foods parking lot.

A male, as yet unidentified, grabbed her from behind and placed her in a “bear hug” until she was able to free herself by elbowing him.

The male was last observed by the victim at the intersection of 10th Street South and 10th Avenue South.

The attacker was described as a 25-30 year-old male, medium build, 5’8” tall. The victim recollected a very pungent odour of cigarettes on the man.

The Golden/Field RCMP are investigating this incident, and at this time, are unable to ascertain a motive for the attack.

Anyone with any information is being asked to call the Golden/Field RCMP at 250-344-2221 or the East Kootenay Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or by internet at cintek.com/crimestoppers.

Bears destroyed by conservation officers

Cows on tracks
