An Ottawa man says his dog is traumatized after being zapped several times by exposed wires around light posts.
Marc Tardif lives in China Town and told CFRA News, his black Lab doesn't want to go for walks anymore.
"He let out quite a yelp and he jumped about four feet," said Tardif
Tardif said this isn't the first time his pooch got zapped. "It was actually the third time that it happened. It happened earlier in the season and having a closer look there were exposed wires and within a one-block radius, there's six of them (light posts) that are damaged and wires hanging out"
Tardif said he's contacted the City which told him to reach out to the local B.I.A. handling the decorative light posts. He said he's been given the run-around and isn't sure if the problem has been solved.
He says a neighbour's dog also fell prey to the exposed wire and also got zapped.
