A 44-year-old woman and a child were treated by paramedics after getting bitten by a dog in Innisfil Aug. 16.

Emergency crews were called to a home near the 5th Line and 9th Line around 4:30 p.m. for an animal complaint.

Paramedics were already treating the pair for a dog bite when officers arrived. They were both taken to Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre for treatment of minor injuries.

The dog is being quarantined for 10 days and the Innisfil bylaw department is now investigating under the provincial Dog Owners’ Liability Act.
