K9 Kastor was shot and killed after inadvertently biting his handler on the inner thigh during a warrant service in the 2000 block of Seneca Avenue.

Kastor would not release his bite despite his handler's commands and another officer attempting to pull the dog off of him. After all efforts to have Kastor release his bite he was shot in order to prevent additional injury to the handler.

Kaster had served with the Waco Police Department for 16 months.

It goes beyond my mind, how they just shot the dog instead of at least tasing him or poking his eyes... poor K-9 may rest in peace.
