Dog fight causes baby to fall in the Northwest

It turns out a five month old baby rushed to hospital from a Northwest off- leash park Wednesday night wasn’t bitten by a pit bull.

The baby fell from a carrier when dad tried to break up a fight between their dog, a retriever cross, and a pit bull, and was taken to the Children’s Hospital as a precaution because of the fall.

North Calgary bylaw operations manager Alvin Murray tells 660News off leash dog fights are a concern.

“It can be hard to break them up.” says Murray. “This is one of the things we preach, if your dog does not obey on command then you shouldn’t have your dog off leash in an off leash area”

Murray says they are still investigating and says both dogs were licensed.
