FAYTTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) – A Fayetteville man had deputies kill his bulldog after it attacked him and his smaller dog, the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office said.
On Tuesday evening, Cumberland County deputies were dispatched to 309 Andrews Road to serve a subpoena on Carl Glindeman.
Deputies served the subpoena to Glindeman, who was carrying a small dog at the time.
As the deputies were leaving the driveway, Glindeman’s larger dog, an American bulldog, suddenly attacked Glindeman, the sheriff’s office said.
The deputies got out of their vehicles and ran to assist Glindeman. The deputies hit the dog several times, but it had no effect on the animal, the sheriff’s office said.
Deputies were afraid to shoot the dog for fear of shooting Glindeman.
The deputies began to kick the dog to get it to stop biting Glindeman’s leg.
The dog finally let go and deputies began treating the man’s wound.
The bulldog then began to attack the smaller dog.
Glindeman asked deputies to shoot the bulldog to stop the attack and to prevent another attack on him.
One of the deputies shot and killed the dog and Glindeman was taken to a medical facility.
