An officer is forced to pull out his gun while responding to a dog bite call.
Police say around nine Saturday morning, a man called for help saying a dog tried to attack him while he was on a walk. The man told the officers where the dog's owners live.
When officers try to talk with the owner, police say the pit bull charged at one of the cops. That officer pulled out his gun and shot the dog in the face. It laid down for a few minutes, then got up and ran away.
Officers were able to track the dog down and hold it until animal control arrived. Its owner was taken to jail for outstanding warrants. He was also cited for not having his dog on a leash. No one was seriously hurt.

You’d think that if the cops arrived to talk to you about your dog attacking someone, you’d put it on a leash or put it in a room.
Neither one works. A Chicago cop shot a dog on a leash and another cop chased a Lab through the house and shot it where it hid under a bed. (House was the mayor's house - false report he had a marijuana package delivered to his house).

Shot a horse in the head with a .357 and it ran off. Had to get help to track it down.
