Police tazer dog
A rottweiler dog has been tasered by police in Belfast after it attacked an officer, leaving her needing surgery.

The animal left one man injured and unconscious on the floor of a house in north Belfast before biting a policewoman on both hands early this morning.

A taser was discharged at the Oakley Street property but the dog was not hurt.

Chief inspector Andy Freeburn said: “It is a credit to the young constables that they so readily put their own lives at risk to save others.

“I am deeply humbled by their bravery and courage and I wish the member of the public and our colleague a full and speedy recovery.”

At around 1.25am police responded to a report that a dog had attacked members of the public, leaving a man injured. He was taken to hospital but his injuries were not life-threatening.

On arrival at the scene, the policewoman was bitten by the dog and sustained serious injuries to both hands which will require surgery.

The taser was discharged at the animal before it could be controlled and taken into the care of the dog warden. It was uninjured and the circumstances are under investigation. The Police Ombudsman has been informed.

Mr Freeburn added: “Police officers are often called into very difficult and dangerous situations and this was one such incident.”

Thank God for that75

The fucking ombudsman was informed! Yes, we have a dog who was tasered and wants to make a complaint.

Speedy recovery to the injured officer. Hopefully she hasn't been too badly injured. - Home of the real emergency service personnel.
Why the FUCK was the Ombudsman informed??? Are they going to take statement off the dog?

"So, how do you feel after that horrendous ordeal Rex?"


What a load of shite......136
It's not the HSE's opinion, it's not managements opinion, it's mine. All mine.
At least their officer came out and gave them the credit they deserve in the media.
That would never happen here.
Whatever your reaching for better be a sandwich....coz your gonna eat it......
If it happened here the shinners would have a picture of the dog wrapped in a tri colour, wearing a neck collar and some bogey solicitor stating he was in the process of taking instructions.
