Vicious dog attack not ‘random,’ say Winnipeg police, Animal Services

Winnipeg police and animal services have clarified some details about a vicious dog attack on the weekend.

Three people were sent to hospital early Saturday morning after an attack by a group of dogs outside the Capri Motel on Pembina Highway.

Two of the dogs were put down that day and the other two, including a puppy, are in the custody of animal services.

The initial police report described the animals as pit bull-mastiff crosses, but that description was later changed to suggest the breed may have been American bulldogs.

Early in the day Monday Leland Gordon, COO of Winnipeg Animal Services, told 680 CJOB there was still some uncertainty over the breed.

Later in the day a city spokesperson said the surviving adult dog has been confirmed to be predominantly an American Pit Bull Terrier, which is on the city’s list of prohibited dogs.

She said the dogs that were put down won’t be examined, and the puppy is too young to make a breed confirmation.
