A Burnet (TX) police officer responding to a call of a dog attack on a bicyclist ended up herself coming under attack by three dogs, sustaining bites to both of her arms. The officer, identified as Corporal Alex Fidler, was taking a statement from the bicyclist when the dogs attacked her.
Fidler shot two of the dogs — one fatally — and the third animal ran away.
“Of the three dogs, one appeared to be a mastiff-pit bull mixed breed, another possibly a boxer-pit bull mix; and the third had characteristics of a Labrador and other breeds,” according a report by DailyTrib.com.
Officials sent the head of the dead dog to a state lab for rabies testing.
