Peel Regional Police have released photographs of a Husky and its owner after a three-year-old girl was bitten in an off-leash dog park in Mississauga last month.

Police said the incident happened around 4:30 p.m. on Sept. 23 at the Parkway Belt leash-free dog park in the area of Highway 403 and Eglinton Avenue.

Phoenix Pike told Global News that her daughter, Georgia Lund, was with her grandfather when the dog attack occurred.

“The dog dragged Georgia down the hill about 25 feet and my dad chased them,” Pike said.

“The owner of the dog came and said something to him – I’m not sure ’cause I wasn’t there – and then as he was trying to get information, he was talking to me on the phone and the medics were on their way … Then the owner just picked up the dog and ran,” Pike said.

Anyone with information about the owner or the Husky is urged to contact police at 905-453–2121, ext. 2133 or Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
