Two US police officers who chased and used a stun gun on a 76-year-old man driving a tractor in a Wyoming town parade have been fired.

Bud Grose, who was shocked five times by Officer Michael Kavenius, welcomed the decision announced by the Glenrock Police Department on Tuesday.

“Hopefully this will kind of help bring the community together and be an answer to a lot of questions and problems,” he said.

Mr Kavenius shot Mr Grose with a stun gun near the end of Glenrock’s annual Deer Creek Days parade on August 1.

Sergeant Paul Brown was also relieved of duty.
