You really have to come to your own conclusion on this one. I totally blame the owner for not having the dog leased or in a yard but at the same time if the officer really wanted the dog to leave I would think pepper spray would have worked better.

There was no reason to hold the taser down that long the first time and absolutely no reason to taser the dog a second time once animal control had the collar around its neck.
