An SNP candidate has been bitten by a dog while out campaigning for next month’s Scottish Parliament election.
Neil Gray, who stepped down as the MP for Airdrie and Shotts to run for the Holyrood seat, took to Twitter to inform his followers he had encountered a canine critic when out leafleting.
The candidate for the Scottish Parliament constituency said it’s the first time in his 15 years of delivering a message for his party that he has been ‘nipped by a dog’.
He urged people to be careful while out and about.
Thankfully after receiving a tetanus vaccine and some antibiotics he is back out today.
Mr Gray tweeted: “A busy day yesterday finishing leafleting in Calderbank and Glenmavis! Thank you to all @theSNP members and supporters helping across Airdrie & Shotts! We go again today, working hard for #BothVotesSNP
“But please be careful out there folks, for the first time in about 15 years of leafleting I got nipped by a dog. Tetanus jag and course of antibiotics and I am back at it today.”
