A DOG has been shot by police after attacking up to three people in Dunlop last night.
Around 5.55pm members from Belconnen Police Station responded to a report of a tan-coloured dog attacking a number of people in the area between Fassifern Pond and Jarramlee Pond.
A 17-year-old male had clothing ripped as the dog attempted to bite him while another man was bitten by the dog, drawing blood, when he went to the rescue of a woman who was “bailed-up” by the attacking dog.
A police officer shot and injured the dog and it retreated to a nearby home where it was contained to the backyard until the owner returned home.
The dog has been taken to the vet for treatment.
