Police officer, 2 residents injured during dog attack inside Niagara Falls home

Three people, including a police officer, were injured during a dog attack inside a Niagara Falls, Ont., residence early Monday.

Niagara Regional Police (NRPS) say one of their officers was bitten twice as they fought off a rogue canine at a house near Margaret Street and Argyll Crescent.

The dog began “actively attacking” residents around 8 a.m., according to an NRPS spokesperson.

A first responder was bitten upon arrival and a second time after fighting off the dog’s first attack.
