Narcotic busting sniffer-dog ‘Cooper’ was killed after being electrocuted while his handler, a Police Constable was hospitalized at Irattai Periyakulam in Vavuniya this morning.

The Police said the sniffer-dog was electrocuted when the dog touched the electric fence of the Irattai Periyakulam Police Station, while it was taken for its routine physical exercise.

Constable Udayakumara, who tried to rescue the dog, was also injured due to electric shock.

He was admitted to the Vavuniya General Hospital.

The Police said the fence had electric protection due to wild elephant threat.(Darshana Sanjeewa and Romesh Madushanka)

    This electric fence seems to be illegal.

    Quite right - did they connect 230V direct to the fence - an independent inquiry is required.

    Pure negligence by police. Not the handler of dog. Poor dog. The way dog's leg burnt wire must be at ground level (4 - 5 inches above ground) . Electric fence for rabbits?

    This dog may have served the country more than most of our present MPs, Prez and PM
