Clark County sheriff’s civil bureau officer shoots dog

An officer from the Clark County sheriff’s civil bureau shot a dog after being attacked near the intersection of West Flamingo Road and South Decatur Boulevard, Las Vegas police said Wednesday.

Metro responded just before 1:20 p.m. to the 4700 block of Via San Andros after the officer shot the dog, officer Larry Hadfield said.

It’s unclear what led up to the attack.

The dog, a pit bull, was taken to an animal hospital, Hadfield said. Its condition wasn’t available.

Officers in the sheriff’s civil bureau serve legal documents such as temporary restraining orders, stalking and harassment orders, bench warrants, subpoenas and summons among others.
