Deputy shoots aggressive dog, owner cited
by Cheryl McDermott

BEND, Ore. -- A Deschutes County Sheriff’s Deputy who was responding to the Sun Mountain Estates subdivision west of Bend Tuesday afternoon to a report of three possibly aggressive dogs at large was forced to shoot one of the animals as it attacked him.

According to Lt. Myrna Homan, animal control Technician David Crump got out of his vehicle about 1:50 p.m. and was immediately lunged at by a large Pit Bull terrier. “The deputy struck the dog with little effect and the dog continued in a threatening manner towards the deputy,” Homan said.

Crump drew his weapon and fired one time, injuring the dog who was later transported to a veterinary clinic where it was treated for non-life threatening injuries, a news release stated.

The other two animals were secured, Homan said, and the owner identified and summoned to the scene. 61-year old Donna Fox of Bend, owner of all three dogs, was cited for animals at large, the lieutenant said.
