The Estevan Police Service was called about a dog bite Saturday in south central Estevan, after a pedestrian was attacked by a dog.

The victim sustained an injury to his hand, requiring medical treatment. The dog and the owner have been identified. A 46 year-old man has been charged under the local bylaw.

The EPS also says it has been receiving several calls regarding provincial Public Health Orders and non-compliance for mask wearing. 

The public is reminded that, at this time, it is the law to wear a mask in any indoor public building or any business accessible to the public. Individuals failing to comply with the health order risk a fine of $2,800, and businesses failing to comply risk a $14,000 fine.

A report of an intoxicated male wandering in the north central part of the city was called to police. The male was located and lodged until sober, as he did not have a sober, responsible person to care for him.  No charges were laid in this instance.
