siuThe Special Investigations Unit is investigating the circumstances surrounding a serious injury sustained by a 64-year-old woman in Almonte.

Yesterday morning, at about 10:15, two Lanark County OPP officers went to a home to conduct an investigation.

The woman and both officers were transported to hospital for treatment. The dog died at the scene.

Four investigators and three forensic investigators have been assigned to the case.
