Massachusetts Cop Kills K-9 Police Dog, Claims Dog Bit Him

Officer Keith Larson of the Plymouth Police Department in Plymouth, MA shot and killed his K-9 police dog Nico. Larson claims Nico bit him and would not let go.

On December 29, 2020 officers were dispatched to a 911 call where the suspect had fled the scene. Larson arrived at the location and was preparing Nico to track the suspect, but Nico allegedly bit Larson.

Police say that Larson tried several times to disengage Nico, but Nico kept his teeth into the skin of Larson. Police say that Larson was forced to shoot Nico with his department issued duty weapon, Boston 25 News reports.

Nico was hit several times and died at the scene. Larson was transported to the hospital by medics to be treated for bite wounds on his hands. Nico was a German Shepard. Larson is a 17-year veteran of the police force and has been assigned to the K-9 unit since 2017.

Police say that Nico bit Larson in April of 2020 also. Larson and Nico took additional courses and training, having to be recertified in July 2020.

Plymouth Police Chief Michael Botieri gave a briefing at police headquarters saying:

“It happened in less than 30-45 seconds, which is a long time that he had to go through that. I’m sure you realize it is difficult too for a K-9 officer to dispatch their own dog like that.”

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
