It wasn’t the dogs doing the barking in Cranbrook’s Community forest last week.
RCMP were called to the popular recreation area just after 12 PM Thursday afternoon due to a report of an assault.
Officers found the complainant, who told Mounties she and her dogs were assaulted by a man.
Police say they quickly found the individual in question and determined the off-leash dogs scared him and so he kicked the animals.
This led to a heated argument between the man and woman who proceeded to assault each other according to RCMP.
Charges are not being considered at this time.
