LITTLE BURNT BAY — An evening walk turned dangerous for a Little Burnt Bay woman who was approached and bitten by three dogs yesterday.

It was around 6 p.m. when the woman was walking on the main road through the community. She was aggressively approached by two of the dogs. Then a third dog joined in. The dogs, who are pets of a person living in the area of the attack, are described as being medium-size, mixed breed animals.

The woman was bitten in the leg area several times. Lewisporte RCMP Constable Donald Matthews said when the owner heard the commotion he came outside and called the dogs off the frightened woman. Matthews said they were not considered to be severe bites, but the woman did require medical attention to examine the wounds and to receive a tetanus shot.
