Siccing Calgary police dog on fleeing teen 'makes no sense,' says legal expert

The decision by a Calgary officer to sic a police dog on a teenager fleeing the scene of a break-and-enter last weekend is being questioned by the youth's lawyer.

A 14-year-old — who can't be named in order to protect his identity under the Youth Criminal Justice Act — is accused of stabbing Jester, a six-year-old German shepherd. The dog was taken to hospital and underwent surgery before being released to his handler's home to recover.
