This one’s for you, Bellevue Ave:
An [Eaton, Colorado] family is in distraught and asking questions after a police officer fatally shot their pit bull Monday morning after the officer said the dog became aggressive and charged the officer.
Capone was a 10-year-old full-blooded American pit bull. Olivia Huerta, Capone’s owner, said what happened was uncalled for.
Uh… the officer was responding to 911 calls about a pitbull running loose, found the dog outside and unleashed, and tried to grab the dog with a catchpole. When the officer fell on the ice the dog charged him. So the officer did what anyone with any sense should do when they’re charged by a pitbull: he pulled his gun and shot the damn dog.
