MIDDLE MUSQUODOBOIT, N.S. — The woman killed by a dog in a rural community northeast of Halifax on Tuesday was the owner of the animal, a local politician says. Coun. Steve Streatch, who represents an area known as the Musquodoboit Valley, says local residents have told him the woman was walking the dog on a local road in Chaswood when it turned on her. “It is a very tragic event that a lot of people are having great difficulty with,” Streatch said in an interview, adding that the woman had recently moved to the area.
