Plymouth Police Department shoots dog
PLYMOUTH — A Plymouth Police officer shot a dog three times Friday after responding to a complaint about a dog running loose on Randolph Street.
According to the police report filed by Patrolman B. DeLee, at approximately 12:55 p.m. police were dispatched to the 600 block of Randolph Street. The person who called allegedly told police that he had to use the lawn mower to keep the dog away from him.
The dog was located and returned to the house. While waiting for the dog’s owner or the humane society to respond, the officer said the dog became aggressive by growling, showing its teeth and charging an officer. The dog was shot two times.
The dog stopped and retreated, but charged at the officer again, resulting in a third shot. When the humane society arrived on scene, per the owner’s request, the dog was loaded into a vehicle and taken to the vet for treatment.
