February, 2011 -
A man is upset after his dog, a 10-yr-old pet described as an American Staffordshire Terrier, was shot twice and killed by Canadian police. The dog threatened paramedics and officers who responded to a call about her owner being unconscious, from a seizure. While the guardian understands they needed to rescue him, he is concerned that his dog was shot once, then shot a second time even though she posed no threat, and that alternatives were not used. The man's other dog did not interfere.
