The theft of railway ties and dogs attacking a man on a porch are among the files Ponoka RCMP handled last week.

The incident with the dogs occurred on Aug. 29. Ponoka RCMP responded to a complaint of a dog attack at a residence in the late evening.

Mounties made an immediate patrol to find two dogs attacking a man on the front porch of a home.
