Residents protest dog shooting by Sandusky cop

Published: Thu, February 28, 2013 @ 9:37 a.m.

SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) — Animal-loving residents of a northern Ohio community are protesting the recent shooting death of a dog by a police officer.

Several dozen sign-carrying demonstrators in Sandusky demonstrated in front of the municipal court building Wednesday. It was part of the local outcry since a city police officer killed a pet Rottweiler named Lucy on Feb. 21.

The officer, who was responding to a complaint of a dog running loose in the area, said the dog lunged at him before he fired the shot.

The Sandusky Register reports that police Chief Brad Wilson is dealing with the fallout from the shooting — including emails from angry residents.

The dog’s owner, Donna Hansen, appeared in court Wednesday to plead not guilty to citations for dog at large and unlicensed dog.

So what's he suppose to do? Let the dog tear him to pieces? They should be protesting the dog's owner,sending her emails, etc. for letting the dog loose and being unlicensed. It's her fault, no one elses. I'm sure all the neighbors called about the loose dog and now blame the officer. Be held accountable for your dog.
