A Knoxville Police K-9 is dead after being shot and killed by another county's animal control officer. The dog, a Belgian Malinois, escaped after a storm and was running loose when he attacked a woman. When animal control arrived, the dog was acting aggressively and was subsequently shot and killed.
Knoxville police are investigating the incident.
Just in case you think this was a bite and leave incident, wrong. The elderly woman was getting out of her car when the dog approached. She yelled at the dog to leave, and at that point he began biting her. The dog bit her multiple times and only stopped the attack when the woman's husband beat the dog off with a stick. She was bit about 15 times.
