Lubbock Police officer shoots dog in Central Lubbock

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A police officer was attacked by a pit-bull in Central Lubbock Wednesday morning. Just before ten o'clock, police and Animal Control responded to a dangerous dog report at 3712 37th Street. A woman called in after a loose pit-bull tried to attack her dogs. Once authorities arrived, they tased the dog twice without success. The dog then bit Corporal Stan Bloodworth in the leg and hand. Bloodworth then shot and killed the pit-bull. 

"These are the kinds of things that happen when people are not being responsible pet owners," Director of Animal Services Kevin Overstreet.

Bloodworth was transported to University Medical Center with non life threatening injuries. The owner of the pit-bull has been notified.
