NEW HAVEN CT - PIT BULL ATTACKED AN ELDERLY DOG BEING WALKED BY ITS ELDERLY OWNER TEARING ITS HEAD OFF - OFFICERS CLEARED BYSTANDERS AND FIRED ONCE INTO THE PIT - THAT DIDN''T STOP IT - FIRE AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN AND THEY FINALLY STOPPED IT !!!!!


UPDATE: VIDEO - MAX, AN 11-YEAR-OLD SHEPHERD/COLLIE MIX  WAS SALLY BROADSTREET'S BEST FRIEND AND "REAL THERAPY DOG" IN THE BIGGEST SENSE OF THE TERM !!!

Shortly after 10 am Sunday a woman who everyone knows  was walking her elderly dog that she walks every day, a   PIT BULL lunged at them grabbing her mixed-breed dog  attacking it and tearing its head off. The woman tried to beat the Pit Bull off with her cane to no avail because it was....

           Sally Bradstreet and Max, her German Shepherd/Collie mix
           LOCKED ON HER DOG'S NECK !!!!!!

People called police and a crowd began to gather. Officers Jodi Novella and Kristen Fitzgerald happened to be around the corner on another call.  They heard the commotion.  They had seen the Pit Bull earlier on the loose and acting wild.  Now they and the crowd watched the Pit Bull tear at its "ALREADY DEAD PREY".

Before firing at the dog, officers cleared bystanders away from the immediate area.  Novella, Fitzgerald, and another officer Andrew Gambardella began firing from several feet away in the street.  They were worried that the dog might next attack people in the crowd.

* AN OFFICER FIRED ONE SHOT - IT FAILED TO STOP THE PIT.

* SECOND SHOT  FIRED  HITTING THE DOG A SECOND TIME - THE PIT KEPT GOING.

* AT THAT POINT TO PROTECT PUBLIC SAFETY OFFICERS FIRED A LOT OF SHOTS

* WITNESSES REPORT THEY HEARD SOME 12-15 SHOTS AND THE PIT WAS DEAD.

      PIT NUTTERS IN THE CROWD ????????

SOME IN THE CROWD CALLED OUT CRITICISMS THAT THE POLICE HADN'T TASED THE DOG.  A POLICE SPOKESMAN SAID USING A TASER WOULD HAVE MADE THE SITUATION WORSE.  A TASER SHOT LASTS  '5 SECONDS'  ONLY ENRAGING THE PIT BULL MORE  AND IT COULD HAVE BROKEN FREE AND ATTACKED PEOPLE IN A HEIGHTENED STATE.

the anguish on this woman's face is just devastating to us normal people while the pit nutters only see the injustice in killing the fucking mutant.

Here in Tucson, AZ, the pit bull mix that attacked Micheal Cook was tased by sheriff's deputies. Then it was taken to animal control, where it was kept alive at taxpayer expense until the Cook family decided to have it put down.

As for Michael Cook, he lost so much blood that our local blood bank had to have an emergency drive. Mr. Cook also had to have both arms amputated.

And then he died.

IMHO, the deputies should have shot that dog dead at the scene of the mauling.
