            El Paso, TX – Wednesday, October 21st, 2015, El Paso County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the 600 block of Gaviota, San Elizario, TX, in reference to a vicious dog.

            Upon arrival Sheriff’s Office deputies encountered a pitbull mix dog on the roadway. As deputies approached the residence to make contact with the dog’s owner, the dog began to charge in the direction of the deputy and bit the deputy several times on both right and left hands. To protect himself from further injury, the deputy discharged his duty weapon at the dog; striking it, but not killing the dog. 

            The deputy was transported to a local hospital for treatment to his injuries. The dog owner was cited for not being able to provide current vaccination paperwork on the dog. The dog was picked up by Sheriff’s Office Animal Control for quarantine.

            No further information is available at this time.
