The Findlay Police Department has released more information about an incident where a dog was shot and killed by an officer last week. Captain Sean Young’s report on the incident says he was driving in the 1000 block of West Sandusky Street last Wednesday when he saw a boxer and a pit bull mix approach a UPS driver.
Young followed the dogs to an alley near 910 Putnam Street. According to his report, the dogs barked and ran toward him. The report goes on to say, “Their heads were held low and they began to spread out as if to attack from two sides.” Young reports he saw no traffic or pedestrians behind the dogs when he pointed his gun at them. He shot the boxer when it got about 8 feet from him. The report says the dog got up on its hind legs and growled before Young shot again.
Pat Lammers owns the dogs. She said the boxer was gentle and played with her grandchildren. She says she doesn’t understand why she wasn’t issued a citation instead of deadly force being used on the animal.Read More →
