Police have described the “horrific” moment when a cop had to make the harrowing decision to shoot and kill a dog that started attacking his family.

A family of three was forced to barricade themselves in a room of their Baldivis home after their rescue blue heeler—with a “traumatic past”—named Ace lunged at a father’s throat, forcing him to undergo surgery.

Homeowners Stephen and Michelle Quail described the scene as a “bloodbath”, saying they were traumatized after all three family members suffered serious injuries from their dog, whom they had only had for a little over a month.

Senior Sergeant Ian Francis of Rockingham Police Station said police arrived at the Vernon Gough Drive home just after 6:40 p.m. Sunday night after a distressed triple-zero call was made.
