A cyclist and two pedestrians were reportedly bitten by a dog in Riverside Park last week.
The cyclist, who didn’t want to be named, said she received hospital treatment after being bitten several times on her lower legs, and experiencing a panic attack.
She said it happened on January 16 at around 4.50pm on the path by the playing fields, closest to the river.
“The dog that attacked me approached without warning from behind, as the first thing I knew about it was when it was attached to my leg,” she said.
“I stopped cycling immediately in case the movement of the bike had triggered the dog's behaviour, but the dog then bit me several more times before running off and biting other people nearby who were walking along the path in the park close to me.”
The condition of the pedestrians is unknown.
The dog was described as “black and wearing a pink coat”.
The cyclist encouraged anyone involved or who witnessed the incident to also report it to the police.
