… Not the Inyo Sheriff’s police dog
The race for Inyo County Sheriff has kept The Sheet busy with its claims and counter-claims, but the latest chapter seems like it’s straight out of a Simpsons episode and involves a county-owned dog that’s being used as a political pawn.
The Sheriff’s Department has removed the asset known as “Bady” the county-owned K-9 unit, from his dog handler, Inyo County Deputy Sheriff Reuben Bradley.
Bady had lived with Bradley’s family. The family views it as though a family member has been torn from the home.
Why the removal? Bradley’s wife, Whittney Lee, posted a video on Facebook of Reuben “training” the dog. The video shows Bady attacking an untrained, uncertified civilian as opposed to a trained agitator.
Fortunately, the civilian was wearing a bite sleeve; a thick, cushioned protective armpiece used in attack simulations.
