An “aggressive” dog is injured after an RCMP officer shot it Wednesday morning.

At approximately 10:45 a.m., RCMP Police Dog Services conducted a training session in the area of 49 Ave. and 44 St. in downtown Yellowknife, a press release said.

During the session, police say Police Service Dog Hoss and his handler, had an interaction with two aggressive unleashed dogs. Both the officer and Hoss were injured in the altercation.

The officer then discharged his firearm and one of the two unleashed dogs was injured and taken to a local veterinary office for treatment, the press release said. No details were provided on the state of the injured dog.

Both the officer and Hoss were treated for non-life threatening injuries and released.
