Alton police shoot and kill two dogs, taser a third

A man is facing misdemeanor charges after his dogs escaped from his house during a police interview and were shot or tasered.

Someone reported that a dog was running loose. Police responded and approached a home with a barking dog, assuming it was the house with the loose dog. As they talked to the resident, a dog escaped from the screened in porch and was safely subdued with a Taser by one officer. When the woman was so stupid as to not confine her dogs in another room and they got out, charging an officer as territorial dogs are want to do, this officer selected a gun to deal with the animals. He shot both of them, inevitably resulting in their deaths.
