Dog dies after police use Taser to stop it attacking man – Mirror Online

An ‘aggressive’ dog has died after police used a Taser to stop it attacking a member of the public.

Firearms officers were called out to reports of the dog attacking another canine and its owner in Braunstone Town, Leicestershire last night.

Police say the armed response team was called out in ‘the interests of public safety’.

To prevent further injuries and possible attack of other members of the public or officers, the police used the Taser, a weapon that fire electric current to stun.

The dog died following the incident, which happened at around 7pm on Sunday evening.

The attacked dog is currently receiving treatment for its injuries at a veterinary practice.

The injured owner received puncture wounds to his legs and was taken to hospital for treatment. No-one else was injured during the incident.
