CHANCELLOR | Authorities searching a home for drugs in the southeastern South Dakota town of Chancellor during a parole check arrested three people and shot and killed a dog.

The Turner County Sheriff's Office says authorities were using a police dog to aid in the search Tuesday when one of the homeowner's three dogs got loose and attacked the police dog. It was shot and killed, and the other two dogs in the home were taken by animal control officers.

Two men and a woman were arrested. Formal charges were not immediately filed.

    The dog brought into the house by the police is considered an officer. If the officers dog is attacked it is the same as attacking a human. If an officers is attacked by a dog when they bust the door down the dog would get shoot in that situation also. The officer has the right to protect himself and to protect his partner who happens to be s police dog.

    You bring a strange dog into a house with other dogs and one of the dogs attacks what he believes to be a dangerous intruder in his home, so he's shot and killed? Why does this always happen? This makes me sick to my stomach, I think the police officer who inhumanely "put-down" these people's dog should be put on administrative leave without pay.
