WELLINGTON, New Zealand – Man bites dog; dog bites back. That was the sequence when Alsatian police dog Edge cornered two suspects on a cliff side after a grocery store robbery in Napier, New Zealand, police said on Thursday.



“He bit the dog first,” Detective Sergeant John McGregor told The Associated Press.

“The dog did win the fight, the offender ended up with one or two lacerations,” McGregor said. “I think he knew he was going to get bitten so he bit the dog first.”

In June 2006 Edge underwent emergency surgery after an offender stabbed him in the chest with a hunting knife. After surgery and a blood transfusion, the dog made a complete recovery.
