Mission RCMP say an accident last evening on the Lougheed highway near Lake Eroch shows why motorcyclists need to be well-dressed.
A man on a bike struck a dog and wound up skidding along the highway for about 33 metres.
Police say he suffered only minor injuries and credit that to his riding gear including a proper helmet, leathers and boots.
The dog, unfortunately, died.
Good thing he was wearing gear!
