I blame the pit bull's owner. They're the sweetest dogs who wouldn't hurt a fly. It's just their owners that cause them to attack people.

What the heck does 'trying to attack' mean? Either the dog attacked or it didn't.

There is a huge difference between a dog that is going after people and one that is just walking around hungry.

Some dogs have it coming, and need lead therapy.

I'm not sure about this one. "Lunging" at pedestrians isn't particuarly descriptive. My neighbor's dog "lunges" at me all the time, the little leg humper. Lt. Byrd said the dog was acting agressively. I wasn't there.

I reserve judgement, given the lack of detail.

Trying to attack usually means an unsuccessful attack.

If I swing a stick at you but miss, does it mean I really didn't attack you?

Things like intent are for judges and juries.

If a bad guy shoots at you but misses, you shouldn't fight back right?

I'm sure it's just another JBT abusing his powers.

I wasted post 700 on this, my bad.

The cop new what he was doing, he's a proffesional LEO. He made a judgement call, he shot and killed the dog because he felt that was the right thing to do at the time. BTW. I own a Pit, he's so cute and loving, know why? I raised him that way and he's well trained.

Pet owner grieves after officer kills dog

Pit bulls have long had a reputation for being violent dogs.


Kristen Butler with Trixie
So when two got out of a homeowner's yard in Georgetown last week, neighbors and Williamson County Sheriff's officials were concerned.

The pet owner thinks they went too far. Last Sunday, Kristen Butler’s pit bulls Trixie and Gauge got loose from the backyard.

"The next thing we knew, we heard shots from the front yard. We thought maybe one of the neighbors was trying to scare them off," Butler said.

The shots were from a Williamson County officer. Butler said he fired five shots, then as Gauge started to run back home, a sixth gunshot hit him in the head.

Butler said the deputy then made her clean up the mess.

"We actually had to take Dawn [dishwashing soap] out there and scrub up the remnants of him. That was probably one of the most difficult parts," she said.

The Williamson County Sheriff's Office defended the officer's actions, saying 911 callers described the animals as aggressive. The deputy said the dogs tried attacking him.

Neither had registration tags and since they were roaming free, they were in violation of the county's leash law.

"It's like dealing with people. You don't get a bio of someone you're pulling over. We don't get a bio of how nice and friendly that dog is. We have to go on the facts presented to us when we pull up,” WCSO spokesman John Foster said.

Pet owners in Williamson County are required to keep dogs contained or on a leash. Violators face fines or the risk of losing their pet.

Butlers said her dogs are not inherently vicious and sleep with her. She accepts fault for the dogs getting out, but the whole ordeal is something she hopes to never go through again.

"More awareness on my part, maybe a little more sensitivity on their part. That's all I can hope for," Butler said.

My dog used to whine at the front window until I let him in and gave him a piece of bologna.

It didn't matter if I was eating prime rib, he wanted bologna.

No bologna, no peace.

Awww... see? Now that is a emotional, anti-JBT story. The one I posted was clearly pro-cop. No sob story from the owners, etc... Just Judge Dredd execution style by the LEO. No emotion.

Don't give me this liberal, touchy-feely tripe.

It's all cause them dogs don't got tails, I tell ya. You gotta be able to see if the tail's wagging to really know if he's friendly! Right?

Actually both articles give me the impression that the dogs' were rightly put down. Wonder why you never read articles when someone other than a LEO shoots one? It's because they don't put out press releases.
