K-9 in-training mistakenly attacked county employee

Dogs that are chosen for work as canine officers are selected for their fearless temperaments and obedience. It takes much time and practice to ensure that these dogs are suitable to work as effective aids for their human partners. Unfortunately, in the process of training one of these future K-9 officers, a California county worker suffered serious injuries when he was mistakenly attacked.

According to the report, the dog was taken to a county office building to receive additional training in conducting building searches. After the animal was set loose in the building, it apparently encountered an employee who was preparing to leave work for the day. The dog apparently launched itself at the unsuspecting worker as he was seated behind his desk.

The terrifying attack last for approximately 60 seconds before the dog's handler arrived and was able to get the dog under control. Sadly, the worker suffered several lacerations and puncture bite wounds to his arm. He was transported for emergency treatment and advised to watch for signs of bacterial infection complications.

Witnesses reported that the incident resulted in blood-covered surfaces in the worker's office. A spokesperson for the sheriff's department stated that future training sessions would be suspended until an investigation is completed, but the dog that attacked the man will likely remain in the program. The injured employee may require an extended recovery period and could suffer lingering nerve or tissue damage that may negatively impact his ability to perform his job duties. California workers who suffer a serious injury or illness while on the job are entitled file claims for workers' compensation, and many rely upon professional help to pursue all available benefits.
