Pitbull shot after attacking police

A Delta police officer shot and killed a pitbull last night.

The officer was on routine patrol on Annacis Island when the dog charged from a houseboat, docked near Chester Road.

“The pitbull attacked two officers, biting one in the hand.  The officer discharged his firearm, striking and killing the dog.  The officer was treated by a local hospital and is recovering from a bite wound requiring numerous stitches.”

Acting Staff Sergeant Dan McLean would not confirm reports the dog’s owner barricaded himself in the houseboat and lit it on fire.

He does say several people have been detained in their investigation.
