OPP shoot ‘dangerous’ dog southeast of Ottawa

Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) say an officer was forced to shoot and kill a dog in the community of Embrun.

Russell OPP say they responded to Notre Dame Street Thursday morning to reports of a man armed with a large knife behaving threateningly.

The man was arrested, but officers say his dog continued to act aggressively, attacking other dogs, animals and other people.

OPP say other means were attempted to subdue the dog, including using a conducted energy weapon, but out of a concern for the public and officer safety, a firearm was used to put the dog down.

No word on if any charges have been laid against the man.

No person suffered serious injuries in the incident.
