A dog attack sent a Jasper resident to UAB Hospital Friday morning from Birmingham Avenue. When Jasper police arrived, the woman had severe injuries. While approaching the dog's residence, the dog attempted to attack the officer, which led to the dog's demise. It was shot at close range and died.
It was taken to a veterinarian for testing because it attacked a person. Jasper Police Chief J. C. Poe says the dog appears to be a GERMAN SHEPHERD. No word on the victim's condition. Police continue the investigation.
