Arizona Police Shoot Dog.

….not so sure if justified.

Interesting, one one hand you could, if you were dog-fearful and a LEO, justify such a shooting.   On the other, some restraint could be called for.   I have such a dog, and she would likely do the same, or similar thing.  But that is one reason I really don’t let her simply hang out in the yard by herself.

  1. Truth be told, the dog was not on attack mode. But I know that because I have been around dogs since I was three months old. I also understand that most people, including cops, cannot read a dog and much less how to avoid being attacked by one. Shootings like this will unfortunately continue.
    Dog ownership nowaday is more about having a surrogate child than actually having a working dog and people expect dogs to behave like barking babies rather than tamed descendants of wolves.

    1. Yeah, agreed. My dog, trained up the wazoo, as I want to have control over her, and for her safety. I have to wonder, and have been in a situation or two where I have had to make that call, “..is that dog on the attack”. Its a difficult call. I have always concluded no, no threat. And that was, what it was. Dog growling, running around, etc., but it did not attack. But, while walking my dog, carrying too, I have had a pack of dogs run up on us. It was frightening, but, dealt with, with an understanding of that pack mentality. I would not trust LEO to bother with that. To know that information. Not to their discredit, but, it would be nice. Comes down to this; dogs are a tough call for LEO. the dog can be a big flower, but, the LEO doesn’t know that.
