CT - Man Shoots His Own Dog Fearing It Would Attack Children In Park

A dog owner's worst nightmare came true when a man in Connecticut was forced to shoot and kill his own dog. Walter Haller was walking his pit bull in a public park off the leash when he witnessed his dog attack another dog who was on a leash.

This caused Haller to fear that the animal may attack nearby children next after it badly injured the other dog. The incident took place Sunday in Hamden, Connecticut and is under investigation, according to Police Capt. Roland Smith.

Capt. Roland Smith said the man told investigators that he was the owner of the pit bull and that it was not on a leash at the time. The pit bull then attacked and seriously injured another dog whose owner had their dog on a leash. It is not clear if it is required that a dog is leashed in the park or if Haller broke any laws by doing walking his dog without one.

The pit bull owner's true fear came when he realized the owner of the injured dog had three children with him also. Capt. Roland Smith says the owner then pulled out his .22 caliber handgun and shot his own dog to prevent an attack on the children. He also confirmed the man was licensed to carry a firearm.

first of all , in ytube mcbride seems to have a way of teaching owners and dogs to function better.. any breed can do very similar effects on anyone as the pit bulls abilities.. perhaps to acquire any dog puppy and up , does or should have passed some training with the family and been approved for both the family and dog species.. met some seriously nasty small dogs that show dogs to mutts can turn on ~ anyone.. dog licence woohoo got a tag .. but what does that really represent .? there a dog training videos but prove the dog and self control over the dog .. even police dogs go through tests and some do not pass the tests .. same as people with various educations..... the article is about a firearm, there would be other pre happenings for anyone to go to do the finish.. could training that is beyond ceasar ~ verse mcbride or others find a better way.. humans are a species as much as canines are . are many glad they did not birth a teenager first.. / you grow up with a child and the child grows up with you.. dogs are different and they like pack with leaders ~ even spca put dogs down and dog pound too.. for a fact .. understanding a species . don't put the dog in the human baby stroller .. or human made doggy diapers.. ~ wake up ,
