(Newser) – A dog is dead and a police officer is in the hospital after a drug raid went wrong last night in Philadelphia. The officer entered the wrong house—the actual target was next door—and a dog charged him and bit him on the ankle. Four shots were fired, with one hitting the dog in the head and killing it, NBC reports. Police say the officer is recovering. (Sadly, it's not the only cop-dog incident that's happened recently...)
