Shot police dog still recovering, may not return to work

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangārei Leader

A police dog who was shot in the jaw at Tangowahine on December 1 is still recovering, three months on from the incident. The dog suffered critical injuries and, while he has been allowed to return home to his handler, no decision has been made about his work future. Meanwhile the 30-year-old farmer, who was shot three times by police during the incident, has pleaded not-guilty to all charges.
