A Miami-Dade police lieutenant used a Taser stun gun to break up a fight between English bulldogs.
Lt. Shawn Browne was driving by an auto shop in the early morning hours when he heard “what sounded like screaming.” Browne saw three large dogs attacking “what appeared to be a person.”
Three English bulldogs, Butch, Nya, and Lilo, appeared to be attacking another dog named Mariah.
”Many attempts to divert their attention away from the dog failed,” Browne wrote in his report.
A security guard used pepper spray on the dogs which caused Nya and Lilo to stop, but Butch continued. Browne stated that Mariah was bleeding profusely from her wounds.
”As the attacking dog dragged the other closer to the fence, I discharged the [Taser] and the probes struck the dog, causing him to release the bite grip from the other dog,” Browne wrote.
Since a Taser was used, the communication bureau’s shift commander was called and a captain responded to the scene.
Mariah suffered from puncture wounds and is recovering at an animal hospital. Butch did not need any medical attention. His owner said he has a bit of limp but he’s fine.
