Two dogs that were the subject of a search are not the animals that attacked a homeless man.

Stratford Police Service says the security dogs that were missing from a business on Griffith Road were found by the OSPCA early Thursday morning near Shakespeare and through a joint investigation, they have determined they weren’t the dogs that attacked the man at his makeshift camp.

The 43-year old victim needed over 100 stitches from the injuries to his body, including his head.   He is still recovering in hospital.

Community Resources Officer Constable Darren Fischer says police are still not sure if the animals were coyotes or dogs.
