Small dog surrounded by six police officers and tasered but it still escapes

This is the shocking moment half a dozen police officers surround a dog in the street before attempting to taser it.

Footage shows the hapless officers trying to catch the dog with a wire loop pole.

Onlookers say there were a couple of officers to begin with but they had to ‘call for backup’.

Another three police vans were then seen arriving along Brick Lane in east London .

But after several failed attempts to catch the dog, one male officer decides to draw his taser.

The petrified dog could be heard whining and backing away from the armed officer before the taser is fired.

It then bolts off and escapes along the street with the wire loop still around its neck.

An eyewitness said: ‘It’s crazy how many police cars and vans were there.

‘The dog had been outside most of the afternoon and wasn’t causing any bother.

‘When they went to taser the dog it just seemed like everything notched up a gear. It just seems a bit over the top.’
