After a raid in London, five police officers had to be taken to the hospital because they were mauled.
The constables (London cops) were attacked by a "pit bull-type" dog as they tried to arrest a man.
A dog unit and firearms unit (UK cops don't carry guns. We know, crazy.) came to the scene and the dog was eventually cornered and shot dead.
One of the cops only suffered minor injuries, the others were in serious but stable condition.
The suspect was eventually arrested.
A police statement said:
"Police attended an address in Albert Square to execute an arrest warrant at approximately 9am.
While officers from Newham attempted to arrest a male suspect, they were attacked by a pitbull-type dog.
A dog unit was called to the scene and CO19 Specialist Firearms Command also attended. The dog was contained and subsequently shot dead."
So sad the dog had to be killed.
We blame the owner for being a criminal and not properly training their dog.
