Per Janesville Police:

On 1/24/24, at 5:08 A.M., Rock County Dispatch received a call from a citizen in regards to two German Shepherds trying to attack them. They were trying to get to their vehicle to leave for work; however, the dogs were extremely aggressive, so they were unable to do so.

A Janesville officer arrived on scene and got out of their vehicle. He was immediately met by the dogs acting aggressively. The dogs began to attack the officer and the officer was bit in the leg. The officer tried to disengage and create distance; however, the dogs continued to come after him. He eventually slipped and fell into a snow bank. The dogs continued to attack the officer. The officer unfortunately had to shoot one of the dogs to stop them from attacking him. The officer fired one time, hitting one of the dogs. They then ran away. The dogs were deemed to be a danger to the community based on their actions towards the caller and the officer.

As other officers were coming into the area, both dogs were located and were still acting in an aggressive manner. A separate officer from the original shooting located the injured dog. The dog was unable to be contained due to its aggressive behavior and the officer was forced to shoot the dog. The dog tragically passed away on scene. The second dog was located and was still aggressive towards officers. Another officer was able to deploy their taser which was effective. The dog was contained and was taken to the humane society due to being vicious.

The officer involved suffered minor injuries and was treated at a local hospital.

The incident remains under investigation. More information will be released once the investigation is complete.
