In South Carolina, a Georgetown County Sheriff’s deputy tased his K-9 after he apparently lost control of it and it bit a cow. The cow responded by kicking the officer according to the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputy Tased His K-9 Then Got Kicked By A Cow
Deputies responded to a call of a burglary in progress on Drivers Lane in the Pleasant Hill community on Wednesday around 4:00 pm. The first deputy on the scene secured the area with his K-9 while waiting for additional officers to assist in entering the residence.
In a post on the GCSO Facebook page, “A cow nearby distracted the dog, and he subsequently bit the cow.” The GCSO did not go into detail on how the officer lost control of the K-9 in the first place. In order to “protect the cow from injuries,” the officer tased his K-9.
In response to the K-9, the cow reportedly kicked both the officer and the property owner. Both the owner and the officer received minor injuries. The burglary call officers responded to proved to be “unfounded.”
