Dogs attack man in Saddle Lake
A twenty-one-year-old male sustained serious injuries after being attacked by as many as six dogs in Saddle Lake on the night of June 14.
The man was walking along a road on the reserve at around midnight, when he was mauled, according to an RCMP press release. He and two relatives were passing in front of a residence when all of a sudden a dog, described as a pitbull or bulldog, launched at the victim and bit into his face. Other dogs, which reportedly belong to the same homeowner, also attacked and bit the male on the arm and hand. The victim's relatives tried to fight off the dogs, however the attack did not end until the homeowner pulled the dogs away.
The victim sustained extensive lacerations to his face and arms and is recovering in hospital. The attack is still under investigation

In the early morning hours of June 9, an RCMP member was on patrol at the Myrnam Ball Tournament when he saw a female in distress, who required an ambulance. The 15-year-old had been sexually assaulted by an unknown male. She was transported to Two Hills Hospital and later released.
On June 10, again in the early morning, a Two Hills RCMP member was flagged down at the Myrnam Ball Tournament and was advised that a 16-year-old female had just been sexually assaulted. The female, who's name cannot be released, was transported to hospital and later released.
