Officer takes down pit bull

By Mark Katz, Dayton Daily News

A pit bull was mortally wounded by a police officer after he was called twice during the day about the dog barking and growling as people walked by.Although the dog had a collar on, it did not have any tags. On the second call, the dog was found sitting on the curb in front of a grassy shoulder and a tree line behind. When the dog did not respond to the officer, he began walking toward the dog, which immediately stood, began barking and growling.
Feeling threatened, the officer pulled his duty handgun and fired two rounds into the dog, then a third to put it out of its misery. There were no homes within 500 feet of the incident and the Trotwood Street Department later removed the animal.
