Brazil police dog bites boy during demonstration

BRAZIL, Ind. (AP) — The Brazil Police Department’s search dog is off the job after biting an 11-year-old boy’s leg during a demonstration inside the Clay County Courthouse.

Brazil police chief Clint McQueen says the boy suffered puncture wounds to his calf when the dog bit him during a mock drug search being done for elementary school students as part of a Red Ribbon Awareness week kick-off event at the courthouse.

McQueen tells WTHI-TV the dog responded to a sudden movement by the boy and released his bite within seconds after commands from his handler.

McQueen tells The Brazil Times it was an unfortunate accident. He says the dog won’t do police work until test results from a veterinarian are returned.
