Mounties in Kelowna say they've notified B-C's police watchdog after a police dog injured a man who was running away from officers pursuing him. 

R-C-M-P say officers pulled over an stolen vehicle with four people inside.

A police dog gave chase and made contact with the man, who was taken to hospital for treatment of his undisclosed injuries.
