An elderly Hamilton woman is recovering after she was mauled by a dog while mowing her lawn.
Hamilton Police were called to the 70 year old woman’s home on Cannon Street East yesterday afternoon.
The woman was mowing her lawn when a dog got away from its owner and attacked her.
She was taken to hospital with non life threatening injuries.
Officials with Animal Services have quarantined the dog, which appeared to be a bulldog cross, and say euthanization is an option.
The dog’s owner only had it for less than a week.
