Recent footage from a Lubbock Police Department officer’s body camera showed footage of an aggressive loose dog first harassing a woman and her baby, and another individual who was seen fending off the dog with a knife, then turning its attention to the officer, who tried several tactics to get the dog to back off before finally shooting at the dog, which ran away. The dog is still on the loose.
It was the latest in what seems like a sudden epidemic of confrontations between loose dogs and citizens in Lubbock and Lubbock County. That includes an instance in July when a man was attacked by a pack of at least seven dogs in north Lubbock County.
