Police responded to a 911 call in the borough of Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie Monday afternoon after a woman was bitten by her own dog.
The incident happened at around 5:16 p.m. on Bourbonnière Avenue near Saint-Joseph Boulevard.
According to Montreal police spokesperson Andrée-Anne Picard, the victim went on a walk with her dog, believed to be a boxer-type.
Upon her return, the animal got its paw caught in the stairs. As the woman tried to pull the dog by the leash, it bit her.
