An officer is attacked by his own police dog. He had to shoot it to escape, police say

A Columbus, Ohio, police officer had to shoot his own K9 partner Saturday after the dog turned on him during a training exercise, police say.

Officer Brian Carter was “verbally correcting” Benzi, a 3-year-old Belgian Malinois, when the dog began biting him about 9 a.m. at the department’s K9 center, police wrote in a press release.

Carter, who suffered serious bites to his forearms, shot Benzi to stop the attack, police reported.

Carter, who required a tourniquet to stop his bleeding, underwent surgery, police said, and Benzi was later euthanized at a veterinary hospital.
