That's rough for the family.

Sorry, but if a pit bull was charging me, I'd shoot it.

Gotta go with good shoot on this one if the story is accurate.

that is terrible

I can see why though. Strange men appear and the family begins wailing, the dog probably thought they were a threat.

Can't fault the officers though, from the information presented.

Man that sucks. I don't fault the officer for shooting a charging dog, but that was very unfortunate timing. I doubt he's happy about it either.

I'm not blaming the cop. I would have shot it too. I just find it funny.

What dog doesn't come to check out strange people at the house?

Funny isn't exactly the first word that comes to mind.

Sad situation to be sure.

police officer shot and killed the Ellerbe family pitbull dog when it broke off its leash and allegedly charged


Still waiting for some piece of my property to break out of my control and attack someone so I can say things like "he's curious around strange people"... sucks I only own property I can maintain control over. Ah well.

I say good shoot, but what a horrible thing for this family.

Shitty situation.

I have a pretty sick since of humor, but nothing about this is funny. The family's son had just been murdered

Not saying that the death of the son is funny. The shitty situation regarding the dog is funny and not in a haha sort of way. More like a dumb fucking luck funny.

This.

Yet another reason I just don't open the door.

If a family member has died, I'll find out soon enough without having a cop showing up unannounced and then getting my dag shot.

Dog lover & owner, no doubt would have most likely shot that dog as well.

I don't like to see blue lights behind me any different then the next guy. Still, IMO LEO getting a bad rap about shooting dogs, they have a tough job with high stress & little money. If a raging animal is charging you, KILL it!
