The Associated Press Published: Sep 28, 2001 [url]http://ap.tbo.com/ap/breaking/MGA02XEB6SC.html[/url] PLAINFIELD, N.J. (AP) - A police dog that searched for survivors at the World Trade Center was shot to death by two police officers who mistook it for a stray attacking a girl. Git Ander, a 7-year-old German shepherd with the Union County Sheriff's Office, was shot 11 times Wednesday as his handler and other officers tracked down a car that had been reported stolen. The handler, Sgt. John Gillespie, saw suspects bolt from the car. He chased the driver while the dog subdued a 12-year-old girl who ran in the opposite direction by clamping onto one of her legs. Officers Ronald Fusco and Craig Montgomery arrived a short time later and tried to pry the dog away from the girl, thinking the animal was a stray. When the dog bit Fusco, the officers shot it. Gillespie arrived as his dog was dying. Sheriff Ralph Froehlich said the dog performed as trained and bit Fusco because the officer tried to separate the dog from the girl - a command that can be given only by the handler. No charges have been filed in the shooting. The girl and the officer were not seriously injured. Don't they put big assed collars on Police Dogs that identify them as Police Dogs or what. If they don't then that is about stupid. Poor dog, got his ass killed by dep'itys Kah-uuck and Gool-lly. 11 shots to kill a dog. I would feel so safe in that part of New Jersy.

If they do it will only be the [b]German[/b]Shepherds. And since they're a minority there won't be anything done to stop them.
