PBSO Deputy Uses Non-lethal Tactic to Dissuade Dog, Even After Getting BittenZimichi
Two german shepherd’s busted out of their back yard and terrorized the streets near Pot O Gold Street, West Palm Beach, this morning. One of the shepherds bit a teenager as he was walking to school (he received minor injuries). PBSO deputies were called and responded to the area. A PBSO sergeant was able to corral the shepherd’s back to their residence. As our our deputy attempted to close the gate one of the shepherd’s re-escaped.
Our deputy immediately jumped to the top of his sergeant’s car in attempt to get away and while he was bitten by the dog, he was able to pull out his mace and spray it in the direction of the shepherd which caused the shepherd to retreat to his yard and the gate was successfully closed.
Not bad for a 35 year PBSO Veteran!
Animal care and control will follow up with the family.
