The Best Headline of 2020 (So Far): K-9 Bites Cow, Georgetown Co. Deputy Uses Taser On K-9, Cow Kicks Deputy

Every Saturday morning at 10am on WRNN 99.5 and every Sunday morning at 9:30am on TALK 94.5, Goldfinch Winslow Law Firm host the  “Goldfinch Winslow Legal Brief” where we take events and stories from everyday life and discusses the legal implications in our lives.  Some are funny and some are serious, but they all dictate the law we follow in our day to day activities.  Much like we do at the law firm we try to make since of the law as it applies to events that are happening to best understand the results clients and other citizens may have in those same situations.

In doing research I found the below article from good, ole…

“GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC – A sheriff’s deputy had to deploy a Taser on his own K-9 officer after it bit a cow while on a burglary call.Deputies responded to a report of a burglary in progress on Drivers Lane in the Pleasant Hill community around 4 p.m. The first deputy on scene secured the location with his K-9 and waited on additional officers to assist with entering the residence.

A cow nearby distracted the dog, and he subsequently bit the cow, according to the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office.In an attempt to protect the cow from injuries, the deputy tased the K-9, according to the report. The dog was taken into leash control and returned to the deputy’s vehicle.

Reacting to the dog, the cow struck the deputy and property owner. Their injuries were determined to be minor.  The original burglary call proved to be unfounded.”
My favorite part honestly has to be that the whole reason this happened ended up being unfounded.   Much like most of the criminal work Goldfinch Winslow handles the facts are a little unexpected, and the situation over blown, only to determine that the whole underlying event is not at all what is charged.  If you need help with any legal work, including criminal work please let us know.
