According police reports, on September 11, 2019, at approximately 10:07 PM, Pearland Police officers were dispatched to the 1100 block of St. John Street to investigate a dog bite.
The caller stated she and her friend were attacked by the dog inside the residence and were now trapped inside a room separated from the dog. In an attempt to locate the two victims, the officers started working their way around the outside of the home looking for an entry point. Officers made contact with one of the victims through a broken window where she was screaming for help.
At that time, the dog exited the home and the officers observed the dog to have blood on his face and mouth. The officers attempted to retreat back through the gate with the dog in pursuit. After the dog cleared the gate it charged one of the officers. A Pearland Officer discharged his weapon, killing the dog.
The officers entered the home and summoned medics to the scene to render aid. Both victims were transported to the hospital for further medical treatment.
The investigation into the incident continues by detectives and animal control officers.
Just curious why the victims of this dog biting incident weren't life flighted out like the police officer was a few weeks ago? These victims were scared for their lives. It wasn't a trained police dog that bit them with handlers present like the dog bite to the officer a few weeks ago during a training lesson. There were not other officers present to render first aid immediately. Maybe because they weren't police officers??? No free tax payer money to pay for the ride??? I guess their injuries weren't life threatening? Why wasn't the aggressive police dog shot? Just curious that's all!!
@MalluGuy : I guess you never saw how Police K-9s are trained. The dog would have been not been shot if it was doing as it was trained. Depending how the officer that was dressed on the receiving end they may have not been properly covered in the protective gear that is worn during training.
