Springfield police officer shoots dog who charged him

Here's what we know:

- Two dogs escaped from a hole in the garage, the same spot where they had escaped before.
- This is at least the third time the dogs have gotten out, two of which resulted in complaints to animal control of dog-at-large.
- Officers were chasing the dogs, agitating them further.
- At some point, one of the dogs moved toward one of the officers, barking. He was shot once in the shoulder. He later died from blood loss.

In an example of classy dog guardianship, the dog's body was dumped unceremoniously in front of officers with the demand that they deal with the body. That's love for your dog, right there.
