Kings West Liberal candidate Leo Glavine was back on the campaign trail the day after he was bitten by a dog while campaigning.
Glavine confirmed Sept. 20 he had been bitten during a campaign stop on the Aylesford Road. A visit to his family doctor followed, along with a tetanus shot for precautionary measures.
“It’s a hazard of campaigning,” he said. “This is the first time this has happened to me in four campaigns and knocking on thousands of doors.”
Glavine termed the incident “one of those things” and “pretty minor,” though he did pay a visit to his doctor as a precaution.
“He was able to deal with it in his office. It was time to get my tetanus shot updated anyway, do I did that, and now I’m back on the trail.”
He said this kind of thing is “not something you can really prepare for.” He added that the homeowner was “unbelievably apologetic.”
Glavine quipped that he never had a chance to ask the dog which of the other parties it planned to support.
