Marshfield Police shot and killed a pit
bull, after they said it sprinted toward an officer. Police defend
their actions, but neighbors say the dog wasn't vicious.
Marshfield Police said they were called
to Kalsched Street Wednesday night, for a pit bull running loose.
"They did talk to one of the
complainants that said the dog had chased him and his dog but had
then backed down," said Marshfield Police Department Lt. Rick
Officers said they didn't know who the
dog belonged to, or where it lived. Gramza told Newsline 9 not long
after officers arrived, the pit bull ran into a mobile home park
nearby. That's when officers said things got worse.
"The dog at one point turned and
began charging one of our officers, to the point of getting within a
couple feet of the officer. The officer feared for his safety and did
discharge his firearm at the dog, striking the dog twice," said
The pit bull's owner declined to talk
to Newsline 9 on camera, but they said they're devastated. Neighbors
who knew the dog said they were surprised when they heard what
"It was loving and it was caring
and anyone in the community here can testify to state that this dog
was not aggressive what so ever," said Don Tomczak of
Police said it's hard to know when a
dog can become aggressive. They said shooting the dog wasn't what the
officer wanted to do, but what he felt he had to.
"There's no telling what the best
option is. If the pepper spray doesn't work, or if the Taser doesn't
make connections with that dog, it's not going to stop that dog and
somebody is going to get hurt," said Gramza.
Marshfield Police said they're still
investigating the shooting. Officials said they've handled other
issues with the dog's owners before, but they say no citations have
ever been issued. Police said they're trying to determine if
citations will be issued in this case.
