Yeah in the first story where they put the neck hoop on the dog you can clearly see that the dog is actually trying to flee like any dog or person would do when feeling trapped.
I am glad that this thread has had this many responses. I see that we only got a response from 1 law enforcement person but I would like to hear more from officers, Fireman, first responders on what your local policy is and how it should have been handled. I feel there are better ways to handle this than with lethal force.
Pit Bulls - Here in Colorado there is huge controversy over them. They are labeled as a dangerous breed and some county’s it’s illegal to own them. And in some you can own them but must carry $100,000 insurance policy. And this is all because some owners raised their dogs to be aggressive. I blame irresponsible owners not the dogs. I loved my pitts and they will always hold a special place in my heart. Best dam dogs ever, and like a previous post, those dog would have died to protect me.
Sometimes I wish this country would just do a “reboot” and get back to making people responsible for their actions, raising their kids and handling their money. My parents
ed me and I learned to respect my elders, other people and take responsibly for my actions, not blame all of my problems on the system or other people.
Sorry for the rant, like everyone else here I want the officers and the Police department to admit that they were wrong and fix it. I know that can’t ever replace the dogs but if they can make it so it never happens again it would be a good day for everyone with a family pet….dog…cat….bird…and so.
