From The Journal Times

Police shot and killed a pitbull dog Monday night after it reportedly charged at an officer.
Racine police went to 1635 Erie St. at 8:45 p.m. to arrest a man wanted on probation hold for several misdemeanor charges. As police surrounded the house, the dog broke free of its chain and charged an officer, according to police spokesman Sgt. Marty Pavilonis.
The officer shot the dog, killing the animal.
Officers took the wanted man, Antonio Redick, 24, of Racine, into custody. He is being held at the Racine County Jail on charges of battery and disorderly conduct.
