Fresno County DA: Investigator shoots dog after getting attacked
FRESNO, Calif. (FOX26) —
A dog was shot twice after officials say the dog bit and attacked an investigator.
It happened Tuesday morning in West Central Fresno.
According to the Fresno County District Attorney's Office, a Fresno County District Attorney's Office Investigator went to serve a domestic violence search warrant at a house.
Officials say that's when two pit bulls charged at the investigator. One of the dogs started biting the investigator.
Officials say the investigator fired his weapon at least two times, shooting the dog in the mouth. The dog ran away bleeding.
The DA's Office says the second dog ran when the shots were fired and did not bite the investigator.
The investigator went to the hospital to get checked out, but the DA's Office says his injuries were not severe.
The DA's Office says the dog that was shot was taken by the SPCA where it will be checked for rabies and quarantined until a disposition is decided.
