A woman had to be airlifted to hospital in London following a dog attack in Grey Highlands.

Grey County OPP say the 64-year-old woman was walking to her vehicle yesterday shortly after 12pm when the dog knocked her down and viciously attacked her.

Police say the victim’s 90-year-old father was sitting inside the vehicle and went to his daughter’s aide. He too was attacked by the dog.

Police and Grey Highlands Animal Control tried to secure the dog,  a 4-year-old Pit Bull/Terrier cross. The dog continued to be aggressive at the scene and had to be put down by officers.

The woman suffered multiple serious bites to her arms and face. Her father suffered a serious bit to his forearm and was treated in hospital in Markdale.
