Five large dogs attacked a Deschutes County Sheriff's Deputy as the deputy tried to arrest a suspected child sex abuse suspect.  The attack was so violent one dog bit and the deputy had to shoot and kill one of the dogs. Today, a Sisters man is in the County Jail on four counts of sex abuse charges. Thurlow Hanson, 66,  was wanted in New York state on charges of sexual conduct against a child in the first degree. The Sheriff's Deputy saw Hanson out in his yard in Deschutes County Tuesday morning and tried to arrest him. Hanson then let his five large dogs out to attack the deputy and the officer was bitten by at least one of them. He is in the Deschutes County Jail on $100,000 bail.
