Womans Nose Bit Off by Dog

Odette Fournier has been fined $600 under the Animal Control Act and her dog must wear a muzzle, after her dog bit off the tip of Anne Riel’s nose. Fournier put her dog in a shopping cart at a Home Depot store and when a greeter of the store bent down to pet it the dog jumped up and bit Riel’s nose. Riel’s needed surgery to reattach part of her nostril. The incident prompted Home Depot to update its policy on allowing pets in stores. As of this week, no pets are allowed in any Home Depot with the exception of service animals.
