Man Pepper Sprays Hiker, Dog out of Anger

MISSOULA -

Authorities are asking for the public's help in finding a man who allegedly pepper sprayed a hiker and her dog in the Pattee Canyon area.

Missoula County Sheriff's officials said a man sprayed a 35-year-old woman's golden retriever because he was angry the dog wasn't on a leash.

Investigators said the suspect then pepper sprayed the dog's owner in the face when she approached him.

The woman was taken to the hospital to have her eyes flushed, but authorities say her dog -- who's described as very friendly -- was uninjured.

The woman describes the suspect as a 6-foot tall, heavyset male in his 50s.

He has gray hair, and was last seen wearing a green parka and jeans.

Please call Crimestoppers at 721-4444 with any information on the suspect.
