St. Paul dramatically limits use of K-9s after attack on bystander

St. Paul police’s use of K-9s was dramatically restricted after an innocent bystander was attacked by a loose dog last week.

Mayor Melvin Carter and police Chief Todd Axtell issued a joint statement Monday after news broke that a man was attacked by a police dog on the city’s East Side, the latest in a string of controversial dog bites. Police also released graphic body camera footage of the incident that showed the dog ignoring more than a dozen orders to stop the attack as the victim, Glenn L. Slaughter, writhed on the ground and cried out in pain.

“Last week’s incident involving a St. Paul police canine is very disturbing, especially viewed in the context of other events that have occurred over the past two years,” Carter said.
