A 31-year-old man was sent to hospital after a pit bull bit his hand during an argument with a woman in North Vancouver on Saturday night.
North Vancouver RCMP are looking into the dispute to see if it's a case of domestic violence, Cpl. Peter Devries said Sunday.
Neighbours of the home on West Fifth Street in lower Lonsdale called police around 11:30 p.m. Saturday night to say that a neighbour was bitten by a dog.
Police responded to find both occupants, a man and a woman, were bitten by the pit bull.
The man got the worst of it, "which was a bite to the index finger on his left hand." The finger was not severed, but it was serious enough that the man was taken to Lions Gate Hospital.
The incident was reported to animal control, DeVries said.
