Cops Shoot Aggressive Pit Bull On Se 72nd

Posted by Matt Davis on Tue, Nov 25, 2008 at 10:11 AM

No word yet as to whether it was wearing lipstick...from the cops:

At 8:13 pm, a Southeast Precinct officer shot and killed an aggressive pit bull in the 8100 block of Southeast 72nd Avenue. Officers were dispatch to the area after two pit bulls reportedly entered a nearby yard and attacked three dogs. By the time the officers arrived, the pit bulls had killed one dog and were in the process of attacking two other dogs. A second dog died from the attacking pit bulls and a third dog was injured. An officer shot and killed one of the pit bulls as it charged him. The second pit bull ran off.

Officers have not located the owner of the pit bulls. Multnomah County Animal Control will take responsibility of the investigation of the loose pit bulls. The Police Bureau will review the officer's use of force to determine if it was within policy.
