Monday WOWT 6 News obtained security video of a dog attack at Millard Central Middle School. The Nebraska Humane Society said the dog shown in the video has a violent past, and officials were not aware the dog was in Omaha, let alone on school grounds. The dog had been officially labeled as a potentially dangerous animal due to previous violent episodes. In the video, recorded April 2, a school counselor/teacher approaches a door inside a vestibule. He opens the door in an attempt to “shoo” the dog, named Sam, away. At that moment, the dog attacks the school employee. The employee quickly makes his way back inside. School officials said students were outside playing at the time of the attack. The employee told the Nebraska Humane Society the dog’s bite didn’t catch his leg, just his clothing. But, what the Humane Society said is most concerning, is the fact that this attack should have never happened.“This owner, for almost a year and a half period, did not follow city ordinances required of him in regards to making sure this dog didn’t attack somebody,” Mark Langan, VP of NHS Field Operations, told WOWT 6 News.An affidavit obtained by WOWT 6 news shows that Sam tried to bite a MUD employee in September 2013. Days later, the report explained he bit a citizen twice, sending them to the hospital. A year later, in September 2014, the report reads that Sam bit another person. That bite did not result in injury.
