Earlier this week in nearby Arkansas, a police dog jumped out of the pen in which it was being held, ran across the street, and bit two nearby neighbors. According to a report by one local news source, the dog was being kept at the home of one of the officers responsible for his care when the dog jumped over the six-foot fence.
Evidently, the dog then ran across the street and bit two neighbors who were out in their yard at the time. Both victims were injured by the attack, and one had to be hospitalized. The dog was categorized as “vicious,” and therefore it will be penned up for at least 10 days while an investigation is conducted.
The dog, which is a Dutch Shepherd, has been with the police force for about three years.
