Police in Connecticut say a man shot and killed his own dog in a park because he feared it might attack some children.
The incident happened Sunday in Hamden and remains under investigation.
Police Capt. Ronald Smith says the man told officers that his dog, a pit bull that was not on a leash at the time, attacked and seriously injured another dog that was on a leash. The owner of the injured dog was also with his three children at the time.
Smith says the owner of the pit bull, who was not immediately identified, told police he was worried his dog might also attack the children. So he pulled out a handgun and shot the animal, killing it.
Smith says the man was licensed to carry the gun.
Great job. Here’s a guy who gets it. Nothing to investigate. A man with his head on straight. That’s all
B”H he understands that people take precedence over animals – unfortunately not so clear to many these days.
Now cue PETA and their ilk as they spout nonsense about animal rights.
good for him
Copy that! This person ought to get the citizen of the year trophy instead of a police questioning.
Thumbs up on this one. Wow, way to overcome emotion and go with what’s right.
Sometimes humanity wins.
wow, amazing story. this is not an easy thing for people attached to their pets, but B”H this guy had his head on straight
Democrats, pay attention, this is how you handle your “pit bulls”.
