Deputy attacked trying to take 'selfie' with K-9 drug dog

MURRAY COUNTY, Ga. — A Murray County deputy is recovering after being attacked by a drug dog.

Murray County officials along with a drug K-9 unit were serving warrants Monday. After warrants were served, a deputy wanted to have his picture taken with the K-9 unit.

According to a Murray County official, the deputy knelt down beside the dog and put his arm around him for a "selfie." That's when the dog turned and attacked the deputy. Officials say the dog was probably feeling threatened and was protecting his handler as well as himself.
