Animal services workers safety precautions

Description

An Animal Services Clerk at an animal services centre was mauled by an American bulldog that was brought in by a member of the public. The incident left the clerk with permanent disabling injuries. This safety bulletin was developed to assist all animal shelters, animal services centres, humane society facilities and SPCA facilities to be aware of potential hazards and worker injury prevention measures while handling unpredictable or potentially dangerous animals.
