A Calgary police officer shot a dog during a traffic stop for speeding on Monday night, Huffington Post reported on July 16.
This is when things went horribly wrong. There were three dogs in the car, and one of the dogs jumped out an open window, biting one of the officers on his abdomen. The officer was wearing a bulletproof vest and wasn’t badly injured.
The officer shot the dog in the head. The dog ran off, but was later found and taken to a veterinary hospital, where it’s condition is unknown.
The man and woman in the vehicle were taken into custody. The two remaining dogs are in the custody of animal services.
Since an officer fired his weapon, the incident is being investigated by the major crimes unit as per procedure.
