Safety alert for pet-owners in Berczy Park

26 Jun



Pet-kicking, disturbed woman sighted in Berczy Park again on July 1, 2019.

Update July 1: Please see the latest photo of the pet-kicking woman, sighted in the Berczy Park mural garden on July 1, and identified by the June 27 victim, in the photo below. Pet-owners, be alert. Police advise that there is little or no recourse against this woman except to avoid her at all cost. Stay clear for the safety of you and your pet.

Update on June 27: Buster is doing okay so far; If you see the accused, call 51 Division Police, 416-808-2222, and reference case #11847705.

Safety Alert: Pet-owners, watch out for this violent woman (see image) who chased a local pet-owner and kicked her dog in the stomach today. At 8:15 Wednesday morning, the dog owner was walking her bassett hound on the Berczy Park lawn near Scott Street when a stranger approached her, yelled that she was allergic to dogs, and proceeded to chase the owner and kick the 9-year-old dog in the stomach. The victim managed to photograph the fleeing attacker, who she describes as 5’6″, brown hair, sunglasses covering her face, surprisingly-average looking and normally dressed in black and gray, but carrying many shopping bags. If you see this woman, contact 51 Division Police, 416-808-2222, to provide information on the June 26 morning dog assault in Berczy Park. Pet-owners, keep your distance from this individual.
