SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Salem Police say one of its officers shot and killed a pit bull as it attacked him Saturday, and a man who apparently tried to intervene was shot in the foot.

Lubbock police officer shoots pit bull in parking lot of United Supermarket | Lubbock Online | Lubbock Avalanche-Journal

A pit bull was shot and killed by a Lubbock police officer responding to a complaint Saturday night at United Supermarket on Marsha Sharp Freeway.

Director of Communications for United Supermarkets Eddie Owens said two dogs wandered into the United Supermarket at 5001 Marsha Sharp and the security officer at the store escorted the dogs outside.

Once outside, Owens said, the dogs began to fight.

“They started fighting and he tried to break them up but to no avail,” Owens said, “so the security officer informed the manager who called the police.”

According to Owens, the police officer arrived and tried to break up the fight.

“Apparently it was a vicious fight,” Owens said. “They were at each others faces and throats.”

Lt. Joshua Crouch with the Lubbock Police Department said one of the pit bulls charged at the officer on scene when the dog was shot. He declined to identify the officer.

According to Crouch, Animal Control was called to remove both dogs.

Owens said none of United’s guests or employees were injured.

All of these happened within the last 3 months. Perhaps these articles will help you to understand why police officers defend themselves instead of macing.

Greenville Police Officer Shoots and Kills Pit Bull | 88.9 KETR

GREENVILLE - The incident occurred Saturday evening after officers responded to a report of a vicious dog in the 3000 block of Wellington Street.

A caller advised two pit bull dogs entered her property and killed her Australian Shepherd. She said the two dogs later returned and began to disturb the remains of the deceased dog. Upon arrival, officers were unable to dissuade the pit bulls from the dead Australian Shepherd.

“One officer fired one round from a 12-gauge shotgun striking the dog nearest him. The other pit bull dog fled when the shot was fired,” the statement read.

The owner of the pit bulls was contacted and issued a citation. The person took custody of both the deceased dog and the one that ran away was later located.

The city says the Animal Control Division will conduct a follow-up investigation.

It was not clear if the dogs had been allowed to roam free or got loose. City ordinance prohibits “any person owning or harboring a dog to permit such animal to run at large (See Sec. 4.03.003 -- Dogs running at large)."
