Sheriff's K9 Bites Cow, Deputy Tases K9, Cow Attacks Deputy

Tom Gantert

A Georgetown County sheriff's deputy's K9 bit a cow and had to be Tased, and then the cow went after the deputy.

Pleasant Hill, SC – A Georgetown County sheriff’s deputy had to deploy his Taser on his K9 partner after the police dog got distracted and bit a cow.

The incident occurred at about 4 p.m. on Jan. 22 when sheriff’s deputies responded to a call about a burglary in the Pleasant Hill community, the Greenville News reported.

The K9 deputy was the first unit to arrive on the scene and he secured the property as he awaited backup before he attempted to enter the home, according to a post on the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office’s official Facebook page.

But as they waited, a cow on the property distracted the police dog, and the K9 bit the bovine, the Greenville news reported.

The K9 handler Tased his dog to stop him from seriously injuring the cow, and then put the pooch back on his leash and into the police vehicle.

But that didn’t stop the madness because that was when the enraged cow went after the sheriff’s deputy and the property owner, according to the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office.

Both the deputy and the property owner received minor injuries in the encounter.

The original burglary report that brought the sheriff’s deputy and his K9 partner to the property was determined to be unfounded, the Greenville News reported.

Dog is lucky to be alive. Poor dog but the zap was just what was needed once the verbals were ineffective. Just not as fun as playing with a cow.

Applying liberal logic: the dog’s teeth is to blame because their teeth bites innocent people!

Why did the Deputy have the dog UNLEASHED...you don't do that unless you have a suspect you can't catch or find. Bad training on his part,,sadly.

Maybe the dog sensed the cow was going to attack and did a preemptive strike!

Really..you tazed your K9? You ate a special kind of stupid and not worthy of being a handler.

  1. Put the K-9 on desk duty for administrative disciplinary action, 2) send the deputy back for mandatory retraining (a horrible fate), and 3) hire the cow, swear it in, and make it the breacher on the SWAT team.
