What a terrible way to have to spend christmas!! This poor family has not only lost their dog, they have lost a member of their family.
I understand that pit bulls and pit bull mixes come with a mixed reputation, but for a member of the RMCP to pin a dog of any type down while their partner shoots it? These are the people that are meant to protect us?!?!?
What would have happened if a child had of 'attacked' the police dog? Would they have pinned it down and shot it?? Seriously, dogs get into fights, so yes if they hadn't have taken action it may have become more serious, but it may have also sorted itself out. They could have fired a warning shot which would have attracted the family... and they could have stopped it. They could also have gotten a hose or a bucket of water, and that is assuming the fight was taking place. I know from experience, if 2 larger-sized dogs are 'going at it' the last thing I am going to do, is put my self in the middle, and I don't believe that the officers were a good enough shot to have shot the pit bull while fighting with the police dog,
Sorry guy's, no matter how quick you are, the dogs would have moved quicker and if they weren't fighting, why the need to shoot at all???
