On September 30th, Chase RCMP received a complaint of a dog attack on Des Fosses Road in Sorrento. The complainant, an eighty-one year old man, was walking on the road with the wife, when three dogs approached the couple and attacked him. The man was taken to the hospital in Salmon Arm, where he was treated for puncture wounds to his leg. The couple stated the owner of the dogs retrieved them after the attack, however, the owner denied this when contacted by police. There are no by-laws in this area for vicious dogs, so people out for a walk and those walking with small pets are reminded to be cautious and vigilant. Owners of aggressive dog breeds are reminded to keep their dogs securely penned in order to prevent this type of occurrence.
On October 3rd, at 10:00 am, Chase RCMP received a complaint of aggressive dogs at an address on VLA Road, near Chase. The complainant stated that as he walked along the road, two dogs ran out from the property, barking and approaching him in an aggressive manner. The owner of the dogs was nowhere around at the time. As he was outside of the municipal boundary of Chase, the complainant called the RCMP and the Thompson-Nicola Regional District. Pet owners are reminded of their civil liabilities should their aggressive dogs attack a person or other animal.
On October 9th, Chase RCMP received a complaint of shots fired near the Scotch Creek Transfer Station. An employee of the station stated that the shots seemed to come from between the station and Scotch Creek. Patrols were made, but no one was found. The public is reminded that that area is part of Little Shuswap Lake Indian Band reserve lands. Hunting is not permitted in that area, in part, due to proximity to inhabited areas.
