Funeral set for girl killed by dogs

  • Print

Funeral services for seven-year-old Gracie Herntier-Clark, who died while playing with pet dogs near Oakbank last Sunday, will be held this Saturday in Winnipeg.

Gracie was an outgoing student in Grade 2 at St. Andrews School, where she had many friends.

She "loved all animals, especially her three dogs Blacky, Mango and 'The Mexican' Chi-Chi," her obituary in the Free Press reads. "Gracie spent countless hours with her dogs teaching them how to read and write, she never gave up on them."

It is not known why two Alaskan malamutes owned by a family friend suddenly attacked her last week. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will perform an autopsy, hoping to find some clue to her death.

The dogs are being detained by the RM of Springfield animal control officer, their fate pending an RCMP investigation.

The funeral is at 11 a.m. Saturday at Immanuel Pentecostal Church, 955 Wilkes Avenue.
