This truly sucks! I never had anything too bad happen to my partner but it truly seems that this kind of assault on LEO K9s has escalated in the last few years.
Yes, there are situational handler errors where the dog should never have been deployed. As Jim said (which I agree 100%) deployment if there is a human that's life is in danger. I am of the mindset that it's our job as handlers to determine if the dog is an option for the specific situation. Along with that it is our job to also provide protection to our K9 partner.
