REDMOND OR - AHHH...PIT BULL DRAMA...DON'T YOU JUST LOVE IT? 2 PIT BULLS THAT WOULD NOT HURT A FLEA "SOMEHOW" GOT LOOSE...WENT DOWN THE STREET WHERE ANOTHER DOG BROKE THROUGH A WINDOW SCREEN AND THEY ALL BEGAN FIGHTING ON A NEIGHBOR'S LAWN...WE HEAR FROM THE WHINING NUTTERS BUT NOTHING FROM THE TERRIFIED NEIGHBORS!!!

Redmond police responded to a call about two aggressive dogs on the loose and ended up using a Taser to subdue one of them.
A neighbor captured a cellphone video of the incident. It starts with Redmond police trying to corral the dog, whose name is Ra'Zac.
He escaped with the other family dog, named Chaos, from a yard down the street from where the video was taken Sunday evening.
The two dogs went several houses down to Obsidian Avenue, where police say another dog broke out of its house through a window screen.
Witnesses said the three dogs got into a fight on the lawn, and police dispatcher received four different calls about it -- one saying that two PIT BULLS were killing another dog.
Officers responded and quickly took Chaos into custody. But Ra'Zac was tougher to catch, and when he started moving away from police, an officer used a Taser on him.
Police said Monday it was a precautionary move.

"Fearing that this dog might get away and attack another animal or a person -- which is the last thing we want to have happen -- the officer used the Taser to stop the dog from fleeing," Lt. Curtis Chambers said.

But Ra'Zac did get away, and eventually returned home and is okay. But the owners, who didn't want us to use their last names, said they didn't think the Taser was necessary.

"To see that somebody would take him as a threat is very hard for me to believe," said Meagan, one of his owners. "To take that extreme caution -- what they did -- it was just too much."

And the family said it was surprised to hear reports of such aggressive behavior from Ra'Zac.

"He's the baby of the group. He's kind of the wuss," said Chris, another owner. "He doesn't like to get involved. He likes people. He likes to be pet. He likes to be loved."
 
Police said they want to make sure it's understood that Ra'Zac's breed had nothing to do with the way they responded in the incident.

"Any dog has the potential of being an aggressive dog," Chambers said. "Not just pit bulls in particular."
These kinds of calls aren't uncommon in Redmond. Animal control-related calls are one of the five most common calls the police department receives.
But it's rare for an officer to use a Taser on an animal.
Redmond police said they have a specialized animal control division that doesn't work on weekends. All officers, though, are trained to handle animals.

LMAFO! Looks like the neighborhood pit bulls know how to throw a dog fight on their own!

I love the nutters that think the taser was too much. They always think that! Their pit bulls are out marauding, they are completely unaware, and their out of control pit bull gets tased. The only thing irresponsible nutters should do is APOLOGIZE! Okay, that's not the only thing. They should pay out of pocket for the damage their pit bulls cause, and pay the police for having to clean up their mess.

No apologies forthcoming, no vet bills covered, and the tax payers have to pay for this mayhem.

Can we pretty please have Breed Specific Legislation yet? The insane pit bull asylum party is getting old!

Another Moronic Pit Lover heard from. Really, you can't have an IQ above 70 to want to own one.

I'm curious what type of dog the third dog was. Seems like it was an aggressive dog too if it busted out of a window in order to try to fight two other dogs.

It's sad how lax the laws are regarding large and potentially deadly dogs getting loose and causing mayhem.

I just want to make it understood, I believe that breed has everything to do with it and will respond to any incident involving pits with extreme prejudice.
