Castloo says the deputy backed up and the dog again attacked, so the deputy shot the dog.

According to Castloo, the animal had shown previous aggression toward another deputy in 2016.

The deputy is not on administrative leave at this time.

The sheriff said any threats to the deputy or his family will not be tolerated and will be taken seriously.
