Dog attacks police officer
Regina Police shot a dog and charged it's owner for assault with a weapon after the dog attacked officers on Sunday.
On Sunday around 4:00 p.m., police were called to Osler Street to respond to reports of a suspicious motor home parked at a construction site.
While officers were on the scene the 49-year-old man sent his rottweiler to attack them. After the first attack when the dog tore the leg off an officer's pants, police managed to lock it inside the motor home.
They called for assistance from Animal Control but the animal protection officer couldn't control it with a pole and it got away running back into the motor home.
When another officer approached the door, the dog attacked again and he was forced to run to a nearby truck. Then the dog turned on the second officer. Police say the officer had no way to escape and no alternative but to shoot the dog.
The owner, Michael Scott Wolfe is charged with assault with a weapon for using the dog to attack police. He is set to appear in court on June 14.
