An Animal Services Officer (ASO) responded to the above location regarding two aggressive German Shepherds that were running loose and had bitten a jogger on the left calf. Upon arrival, the ASO approached the dogs in an effort to contain them. Both dogs began barking, baring their teeth and charged the ASO. As the dogs began moving around the neighborhood, additional attempts to contain the dogs were unsuccessful. The ASO requested additional assistance from EGPD in containing the dogs. EGPD officers arrived and encountered the same aggressive behavior when they arrived. When an EGPD officer attempted to retrieve a less-than-lethal force option (beanbag shotgun) both of the dogs charged at the officer. Based on the aggressive behavior and attack, the imminent threat to the officers, and the threat to public safety (school and park nearby), an EGPD officer shot one of the dogs. After being shot, the dogs continued to remain aggressive and continued to pose an imminent threat to public safety. Another EGPD officer shot the other dog and they both succumbed to their injuries. The injured jogger was contacted and did not require medical treatment at the scene. Additional follow-up is being conducted to determine if these dogs had been involved in at least two attacks on animals earlier that day.
