Tased stray dog running loose in East County

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - There's a desperate search in the East County Monday for a dog that was tased and is running loose.

It all started Saturday night when the dog was spotted in the backyard of a home in Fletcher Hills. The homeowner notified El Cajon police and animal control, who advised officers to use pepper spray and a taser in an attempt to retrieve it. Despite being surrounded, the dog was able to break free and run away.

Dog rescue group Four Paws has been searching for the female dog, which was spotted by News 8 cameras running on Altozano Drive with a taser barb in her side.

According to the police department, they used a taser on the dog after she exhibited aggressive behavior.

Large crates have been put out with food in an attempt to lure the dog.
