Cops Shoot, Kill Dog During Domestic Disturbance

CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago police officers shot and killed a dog Thursday morning while responding to a domestic disturbance in the South Shore neighborhood.

Officers were called to a domestic disturbance shortly after 6 a.m. in the 7400 block of South Chappel Avenue, police said. When they arrived, they were forced to shoot and kill a dog that was threatening them.

“If an animal poses an immediate threat to the safety of an officer or another individual, an officer may take appropriate measures to defuse the threat,’’ Police News Affairs Officer Darryl Baety said.

No one was injured and Baety said he did not know what breed of dog was shot.

    People disgust me. This was the owners fault for not putting the dog away. Now the poor dog died doing what it should do which is protect their owners. Too bad the owners didnt care enough to put the dog away for his/her safety.

    At least the owner didnt keep the owners outside of the house while then went in and shot the dog.
