*Update: The dog reported to be a “pitbull” in the following story was actually discovered to have been a Catahoula/American Bulldog mix. Doesn’t matter. The cops still shot it and it’s still dead.
You know, Texas officials just aren’t even trying to be stealthy anymore about turning every dog attack into a “pitbull” attack (all so they can push through some or all of their highly-restrictive dog-related legislation). The latest attack, which actually resulted in the death of a Friendswood, Texas woman over the weekend, was reported to have involved a retriever, a “pitbull-type dog,” and an Alaskan Collie. First of all, what the heck is an Alaskan Collie? Second, why was the “pitbull” shot and killed by police when it was the collie that had blood all over it? Responding officers said they shot the “pitbull” because it supposedly lunged at them, which is what they always say when they don’t care to be bothered with the dog and would just rather shoot it. Police, in an apparent attempt to outdo their own outlandishness claimed that,
“…only the one dog actually attacked the woman. They say it was the dog that they had to kill.”
It also happened to be the dog they thought was a “pitbull.” And how is it that the police know that the “pitbull” was the one responsible when nobody witnessed the attack and it was the collie that was covered in blood?
