I had a friend that used to have a husky, she never wanted to be inside like ever. She was willing to at least come in at night but she very much preferred to be outdoors.

It's odd that a chained dog would attack another dog, unprovoked...

It's too bad the officers ignored the beware of dog sign and entered onto the property anyway.

Ok well now that I've read the story still think the officer was wrong. I mean I get it was necessary to shoot the dog because they couldnt be seperated, but I feel for the dog, of course its gonna defend its territory :/

Yeah, they should have restrained the canine dog before entering or something. (I'm not really sure what they do) but if signs are posted they should have paid more attention and took a different approach.

That to I cant believe they would let a police dog get so close to an unknown dog! I mean arent police dogs trained not to attack? And if it didnt attack first how did.it get close enough to the other without being restrained?

I was just wondering that, too. How did the K9 get into the backyard? It's unlikely the officer threw him over the fence, they probably had to enter through a gate.



How sad. :(

Seems fishy to me though

This occured in my city.

The unfortunate parts are:



A) The dog is a pit. Already that's a strike against him
B) The area in which this happened is known for high crime. Sort of one of those 'shoot then ask questions' type thing and it sucks because the innocent people (assuming first) are the ones who take the fall.

This whole situation is sad and really makes me question the procedures of our officers.

So all there really is to go on is what the officers say and what the owners say?
That's definitely a ones word against the other. I'm sure the truth is somewhere in the middle. If the dog was outside and there were signs obviously the dog wasnt "super friendly." Probably trained to protect. Of course the dog would be the owners "friend" even abused dogs are loyal to their owners. The police should have been more observant and saw the signs posted but if they didn't, he was well in his right to shoot to protect hisself and his dog. It's just my opinion and all though its sad sometimes it's nessecery :/.
