Police in Barrie say officers were forced to shoot a dog that wouldn't stop attacking its owner.
Officers were called to a funeral home parking lot Saturday afternoon where they found a woman being attacked by her own dog.
Police say it was viciously biting her on both arms, and ignored all the efforts of both the woman and the officers to get it to stop.
They say multiple shots were fired, killing the dog.
The woman was taken to hospital for treatment of non life-threatening injuries.
