But... He fell because he was running around like a fool and was an idiot, not because of the dogs. lol
You don't? I work at a private dog park with over 200 dogs as members and I see my own and other dogs playing with their hackles up on a daily basis. It absolutely is never a 100% sign of aggression.Justified, I saw three unsure dogs trying to scare off a "threat". I don't see too many dogs playing with hackles up.
Why? You would have fallen, gotten back up, and stumbled around a few more times without being bit before the cop actually shot a dog... He fell and got up just fine with no attack happening.well - if there were 3 pit bulls circling me - and I fell....I sure would be thankful that the officer was there.
I guess I don't agree. Either know that you're shooting something that is going to hurt something or don't shoot, then. I bet slamming a car door would have done the trick, as well. Again, uneducated people taking care of dogs. I don't blame the cop as much as I do the animal control officer, but still.Absolutely not! The officer made a smart choice in being aware of where that bullet was going to go. Right through the dog and into a very big hill side. Warning shot in the air is how people die.
I am not a cop, and that is not the point. He could have just as easily fired into the hill without the dog present if he was going to decide he needed to fire.And just where does the 'warning shot' land? You are accountable for any shots fired.
Top of a bystanders head, a little kids bedroom maybe? Warning shots are never a good idea. If you have to draw a weapon you better be ready to use it as intended on the target.
