Health unit seeking dog involved in biting incident

The health department said the incident happened at 9.30am on April 15 on Bayfield Street between Trowbridge and Nelson streets, near the Meaford waterfront. The dog is described as a pit bull/French mix, white and dark brown/black in color, and weighs approximately 50 to 60 lbs.
