    I would have said the same for the asshole that shot the family dog in front of the kids, when they were in the wrong apartment to begin with AND the kid asked permission to crate the dog.

    This seems a little more "I can't judge, having never engaged in a foot pursuit."

    On the other hand, - I love dogs. I know how much my heart hurt when I lost contact with mine.

    It's a conundrum.

    Unless some other facts or witnesses come forward, nothing will happen to the Officer because he did nothing wrong.

    If the Officer can articulate that he thought the dog was attacking him, then it's justified.

    Animal lovers may not like it, but that's how it is.

    Just a tragedy for Monkeys people.

    Foot pursuit is balls to the wall and who knows what was going through the officers mind??

    I've heard of dogs being shot for far less.

    Just a shame for the owners and one lovely dog.
