Police also shot my Pitbull(Boss).
I was walking him on a leashed down the street when another pitbull unleashed approach the dogs started fighting. To make a long story short after the owner of the other dog and I was unsucessfull in pulling the two dogs apart I flagged down a city dectective which she took matters in her jumping out of the car yelling get your dog I'm going to kill him. Before she calls animal control and let them respond to the call she kills Boss, my dog, stating my dog would'nt stop fighting. Please anyone that can assist me with this I greatly appreciate it.

An off duty officer shot my pitbull. I think he did it only because she was a pitbull. She was not an aggressive dog and he said she was growling at him, but she was shot in the back of the head. It is my fault that she got out, but I do not think she should have been killed. If anyone has any advise, please let me know. This happened in Oregon, Jan 10 2009. thank you.
