Dog shot, killed by officers in Rochester

By Matt Russell, The Post-Bulletin

A dog so dangerous that its previous owner had its new caretaker sign an agreement stipulating the animal have no contact with other people was killed Tuesday night after it charged at law enforcement officers, according to Rochester police.

The pit bull had been owned by a 21-year-old homeless man before he turned it over to a 49-year-old woman living at the 800 block of West Center Street, according to police Capt. Brian Winters.

The dog was shot once by a Rochester police officer, and a Minnesota State Patrol officer killed the animal with a second shot after it continued to be aggressive, Winters said.
