‘Bite’ Marks Actually ‘Bike’ Marks
Vanderhoof, B.C. – Concerns in Vanderhoof that a vicious wild animal may be roaming the community have been laid to rest.
RCMP in Vanderhoof were called to a residence on Derksen Road last evening, where a young man was found to be bleeding from what at first glance appeared to be bite marks.
RCMP contacted Conservation Officers who examined the wounds, and said they were not consistent with the kind of punctures one would see if a human had been attacked by an animal.
RCMP now say they believe the injuries were caused by the young man wiping out on his dirt bike.
The male was taken to hospital for treatment of his injuries and released.
Residents in the area can breathe a sigh of relief.
