A Deschutes County Sheriff's Deputy is doing okay today after being attacked by a pack of five huskies and German Shepherds during an attempted arrest yesterday morning. We now have the name of the deputy involved: "Deputy Kent VanderCamp.  He's okay his pants were torn, but fortunately in the wintertime we wear lot of layers to stay warm, so it didn't break the skin."  Captain Tim Edwards says the attack was so quick and violent the Deputy had to shoot and kill one of the dogs.  Then they were able to arrest the Sisters man who is in the County Jail on four counts of sex abuse charges. Thurlow Hanson was wanted in New York state on first degree charges of sexual conduct against a child.
