BRIDGEWATER, N.S. — Police in a Nova Scotia community say they had to shoot a dog after concerns the animal could attack residents of a neighbourhood.
The incident started around 7 p.m. Wednesday when police were called to a street in Bridgewater.
A white husky had attacked a fawn and was starting to eat the young deer.
An officer shot the dog over concerns it might attack another animal, or even some of the people in the residential neighborhood.
The dog made its way into a nearby wooded area, but it hasn't been seen since then.
Police are telling people to be careful in case the dog is still alive.
