Dog shot by police in 2006 dies of unrelated causes

In 2006, police arrived at a home because of a dog bite report. The victim had been bitten by a family member's dog and had gone to the hospital. Her own dog had been tied up out front. When the officer arrived, the tethered dog growled once and the officer responded by shooting the dog in the head. He was on a 5' tether.

The city never formally apologized though they did pay for all veterinary costs.

Recently, the dog died from pancreatitis, unrelated to the gunshot wound.
