Police Officers in Tualatin Help Contain Two Dangerous Dogs

(TUALATIN) - Police Officers in Tualatin helped contain two dangerous dogs that destroyed a domestic cat earlier today.

Tualatin Police were called the area on a report of two large dogs destroying a cat.

When Officer Nate Cooper arrived, he located the two dogs who were still with the cat, which was deceased.

Officer Cooper remained in his patrol car and he and other officers maintained a "rolling containment" of the two dogs as they ran through the area neighborhoods. The officers did not attempt to approach the dogs for fear of creating a more hazardous situation, thus requiring the use of force against the animals. The on scene officers coordinated their efforts with Tualatin Police School Resource Officers, who made contact with the Tigard-Tualatin School District to insure that no busses or school children would be in the area. The officers remained vigilant of the location of the dogs with regard to any possible pedestrians and were prepared to take immediate action against the animals if any citizens became threatened.

Washington County Animal Control was contacted and also responded. While the Tualatin Officers contained the dogs for about 45 minutes, the owner of one of the dogs responded to the scene and was able to collect both dogs.

The dogs are owned by two separate owners, both of whom are facing charges of Failing to Prevent a Dog Running at Large, Keeping or Owning a Vicious Dog and Failing to Prevent Acts of Nuisance by a Dog. The investigation is ongoing and Tualatin Police have coordinated with Washington County Animal Control to insure the proper charges are levied. The names of the dog owners will not be released until they have been cited by officers.

Tualatin Police would remind citizens that they should never approach an unknown dog or other animal. If at any time an animal appears aggressive, citizens should call 9-1-1 immediately and report the situation.
