Kingsport officer shoots another dog

Back in June, a Kingsport police officer shot and killed a dog.

Now he has shot another dog. This situation is a bit different as all witness accounts describe the dog as very territorial and aggressive, including the owner of the dog. Police were approaching a house for sale which they believed someone was living in illegally. The person there asked them to let him put his dog away because the dog bit people. But instead of chaining the dog or putting him inside, he put the dog in a dilapidated porch with an easy point of egress for the dog.

The dog charged at officers and attempted to bite them. The dog was shot and later euthanized at a veterinarian.
