While it’s never a good idea to attack a law enforcement officer, sometimes things tend to get out of hand. To this end, we are here to bring you the story of a New Hampshire resident who lost a biting contest to a police dog. These incredible events took place a few days ago, during a police action.
Police Dog Attacked by New Hampshire Suspect
According to the New Hampshire authorities, several police officers were summed to a trailer park by a 911 caller who reported hearing gunshots. After combing the area, the authorities identified and discovered four suspects, each of them with active arrest warrants.
Three of the suspects were taken into custody without any opposition, while the fourth one barricaded himself in the trailer, refusing to cooperate with the authorities. Forced by the circumstances, the New Hampshire law enforcement officers broke down the trailer door and sent Vela, a police dog with the New Hampshire Canine Troopers, to subdue the uncooperative suspect.
According to the police report, Vela didn’t have any trouble finding the individual, as he was hiding under a pile of clothes. When Vela approached the pile, the individual started punching and kicking the police dog.
At one point, the individual started chocking the dog and bit her head several times. Of course, the police dog wasn’t about to stand idle after being a challenge to a biting contest, so it bit the suspect back.
While it might sound bizarre, according to the police report, the individual really believed that a quick bit to the head would make the dog go away. Still, the police dog managed to win the contest, and the suspect was taken into custody.
After the shakedown with the suspect, Vela required medical attention. All four individuals were booked into the county jail.
