80-Year-Old Threatens Animal Control Officer

KSAL StaffJuly 31, 2015

An 80-year-old Kansas woman is accused of threatening animal control officers and firing a handgun as they were attempting to remove a dog from her property.

The woman was arrested Wednesday evening on suspicion of disorderly conduct and other charges.

Police say animal control officers were called to her rural Hutchinson home after a black Labrador bit a Reno County Area Transit driver. Sheriff’s spokesman Darrian Campbell says the woman seemed OK with the dog being removed until the officers started tracking it with tranquilizer guns.

Campbell says the woman went into her house and came out with a .22-caliber semi-automatic handgun, forcing the officers to take cover.

He says the woman fired one round, but it’s unclear if she was aiming at anyone.
