COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A Richland County Sheriff's Department K-9 attacked a dog on Wednesday.

According to Sheriff Leon Lott, the incident happened on Emsworth Drive when the K-9 jumped a fence and attacked a neighbor's dog.

Lott stated the tragic incident should not have happened and the Department immediately made arrangement to pay all medical expenses for the injures. If Richland County Animal Care opts to issues a citation, Lott said the deputy will accept it.

Lott said the Department accepts full responsibility for the unfortunate incident and will be addressing it to prevent from happening again.
