WEST KELOWNA – The dog that bit and seriously injured its owner last week has been euthanized.

Regional District spokesperson Bruce Smith says in an emailed statement the multiple injuries the Fintry man sustained on Dunwaters Road June 2 were serious enough he had to spend at least one night in Kelowna General Hospital.

It was euthanized today, June 10.

The dog has no record of aggressiveness but the owner voluntarily surrendered it for destruction, Smith says in the statement.

At the time of the attack Smith had said it was a pitbull-type dog but he didn't know if it was a purebred or a mix.

The identity of the victim is not being disclosed.
