Dog shot by Kingman Police was rabies-free

KINGMAN - The German Shepherd that was shot and killed by Kingman Police officers Sept. 23 after the animal attacked its owner did not have rabies, according to Deputy Police Chief Rusty Cooper.

Officers responded to the 3400 block of Stockton Hill Road about 20 minutes after midnight and shot the "unusually aggressive" animal. Witnesses told police the dog dragged its 66-year-old owner across a parking lot prior to their arrival.

Officers first shot the dog with a taser and used a catchpole in an attempt to control it, but ultimately had to use lethal force at the scene.

According to Cooper, the man suffered serious wounds to his face and upper body.

According to Zen Mocarski, the public information officer for the Arizona Department of Game and Fish in Kingman, there hasn't been a case of rabies in Mohave County in more than a decade.
