Winnipeg police say a child was bit by one of their service dogs during a visit to a local school on Wednesday.
The WPS K9 unit was at Samuel Burland School as part of a classroom visit when the student suffered the injury.
Police say the child was provided with medical care before being transported to hospital as a precaution and for treatment.
Police add that the canine is a single-purpose drug detection dog and not trained in aggression or apprehension.
While the WPS reviews the incident, the police dog has been removed from active service.
