07/05/13 - Deadly force on a dog


Re: July 5 article, “Officer shoots, kills pit bull in shop.”

Give a cop a gun in a dog situation and the dog loses. It will get shot. There are non-lethal ways to break up a dog fight and a pet store allowing dogs in the store should have this sort of thing available.

One would be an electrical prod. This would be much better than an execution!  - Elizabeth Smith  - madchen863@aol.com - Leander


Use pepper spray

Re: July 5 article, “Officer shoots, kills pit bull in shop.”


Another dog shooting by a police officer makes me wonder: Do police no longer carry pepper spray? The latest shooting was by an off duty but uniformed officer, whom you would expect to have had a pepper spray canister on her duty belt. I always carry pepper spray when I walk in our neighborhood and have had to use it on several occasions. It always works to stop aggressive dogs in their tracks, is non-lethal and only causes discomfort for a short time. Surely, this is a better solution than reaching for a gun and killing the dog.

Kristin L. Hoffmann's insight:

Dog shooting - Re: Nov. 20 community briefing, "Officer shoots, kills dog."

I am sickened to read that a police officer killed someone's pet (wearing a leash and collar) when the officer provoked the situation in the first place by approaching the dog.


Frightened animals often react aggressively and the officer should have recognized this and backed off when the dog showed signs of fear or aggression.


Why didn't the police officer call animal control? They have the training and proper equipment to capture the dog in a humane manner.


Then the owner could have been traced and reclaimed his or her pet. Not only would the animal have been saved, but the lives of bystanders would not have been endangered.


I cannot imagine the horror felt by the people who witnessed this incredible act of cruelty. This officer should understand the difference between an animal attacking without cause and an animal that is simply lost and scared.
