Abused, tortured and now destroyed.
10 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

A young teacher and coach of the local volleyball team was jogging in the park together with her Terrier dog. Suddenly another dog ripped them apart, let the girl and her dog drown in their own blood. So a dog hunt has just begun. After another accident happened not so far from the first (this time the dog only wounded the victim's arm), K- 9 unit barely managed to subdue it. Thanks to new technology (a microchip implanted in dog ear), detectives trace down the owner, just to discover right away he sold the dog to a company years before. At company address, they found a training place where dogs were tortured and starved in order to make them available for dog fight. The businessman can't pull the strings, because he has been in jail for the last two years without any contacts to the outside world apart from his counselors, who become shortly after the prime suspects.

The point of the episode is the following: could an enraged dog be regarded as a murder weapon? At trial defense attorney try to play the Jury with a naive justification, but McCoy tactics is very brilliant.
