Rochester police officer kills charging pit bull

By Victoria E, Freile, Democrat & Chronicle

A Rochester police officer shot and killed a pit bull last night after the dog charged at the officer.Rochester Police Cmdr. Timothy List said a resident called officers to a residence on Sobieski Street about 11:50 p.m. because two pit bulls were fighting in the house. The homeowner told police that one of the two dogs had recently given birth and had been acting aggressively since then.
Once at the house, officers, moved between the residents and the dogs and attempted to subdue the animals. One of the two dogs charged at an officer, who fired once at the pit bull. The dog died.
The second dog, also a pit bull, suffered extensive injuries from the fight and was removed from the house by city animal control officers, List said. That dog was euthanized due to the extent of its injuries, he said.
No people were injured.
