Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit has been called in after a police dog bit the genitals of a suspected car thief, who was caught after a nine-kilometre chase.

Just before midnight on Tuesday, Durham police spotted a car in Oshawa that had allegedly been stolen in Toronto. When police tried to stop the vehicle, the driver took off.

Police chased the vehicle west on Highway 401 and it exited at Lakeridge Road.


Both suspects bailed from the car at the exit and tried to run away.

Officers caught one of the suspects on foot, while the other was tracked down by a police dog.

That suspect was injured when the dog bit him in the genital area.

A Durham police officer was also bitten by the dog and had minor injuries.

Police said charges are pending

Pro tip: don’t run from the cops.

The dog biting the cop is a concern though. It’ll need more training.

S. O. P. for all involved, the perps, the cops and the mutt. Nothing to get excited about.

Not necessarily, however I am sure there will be a review of what happened. When I was posted in Innisfail, Alta. I got to know the staff and handlers quite well. The dogs do not discriminate, if one was to put their hands in front of the dog when they are on the attack then one can expect to be bit. In the field when working with a handler we are always told not to cross the dog's path, get in front of the handler and to not grab the suspect until the dog is called off and brought back to lead.

Once the taste of genitals is experienced, there's no turning back?

Exactly. My two dogs once got in a fight and I made the mistake of trying to grab their collars to break it up. I got a very nasty bite. It was unintentional, my dogs would never purposely bite me, but if you put any part of your body in front of a dog that is biting something/someone, you are asking to get bit.

Just the fact that the cop was bitten by the dog just proves lack of training and have no business being a police dog.

There is one weird thing. According to above opinions the dog should attack extended parts of the body like arms or legs first.
That's part of instinct and also training .
Why something caused primary target change ?
Was it smell dog couldn't stand
or because dog's name is Nutcracker and he always does it ?

While I am not disputing you or the linked article a police service dog is trained to not just attack the subject but to take the person down, key word being "down", immobilize. They will attack any available appendage they can easily target. Yes, in most cases it should be the arms, however if the legs are the first target they will attack the legs as that would surely bring the person down. Now, if the person starts to kick the dog it will then also go on the defensive and start to move up the body avoiding the feet, guess what the next target could be.

Just one more thing here is if a weapon is seen by the dog or handler, they will definitely go for that part of the body with the weapon (hands or arm).
