The other way around - the cops trained him.

This breed means business...serious business. Would not want to get on their bad side and be on the receiving end. Ha! 

 

Job well done and so glad Yoda was not hurt protecting and serving all of us.

@Icegoddess Police cleaned the guy up before most photos. According to his handler officer during today's presss conference the dog is trained to latch on to one spot and hold it with his teeth until the handler gives the dog the signal to stop. Cavalcante's face was covered with blood afterwards. I have a picture but I'm afraid of offending some that don't like the sight of blood. No wounds are visible in the picture, just blood on his face that dripped down from where he as bitten on his scalp.

@Mindy D I saw a picture of his face.  Odd that the dog would go for the head unless that was the cloeset option.  

 

Yeah, I know how the dogs do.  I've seen them have to pry the dog's mouth off in some cases.

@AuntG Oh  come on. Don't blame the police because this guy had 100s of places to hide. That 's ridiculous.

 

I hope Yoda gets a steak for the next 2 weeks!

@Icegoddess @The officer mentioned why during the press conference. I think calvalcante was trying to keep crawling away. I think the officer said he was still holding the rifle. If you want to, you can probably view the press conference on YT.
