A Buffalo police officer on Sunday shot a dog that was attacking an animal control officer and was about to attack another police officer at a home on Norfolk Avenue, according to a police report.
The animal control officer was investigating a "dog bite/attack" involving a large mastiff at 642 Norfolk Ave. at 5:20 p.m., according to the report.
The dog's owner, identified as Kelly Klenke, 46, initially refused officers access to the animal. Officers told Klenke not to release the dog from behind a gate, which she did, the report said.
The dog started attacking the animal control officer and then turned to attack another police officer when a third officer shot the dog, according to the report.
Klenke was charged with second-degree reckless endangerment and second-degree obstruction of governmental administration.
