Pit bull fatally shot by sheriff’s deputies hunting for armed man

Abby Sewell (Los Angeles Times) | September 18, 2011

Sheriff’s deputies shot and ki*led a pit bull in Norwalk after it attacked a dog accompanying the deputies on a search for an armed man, authorities said.

The deputies were searching for a man with a gun after the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department received a call about gang members, one of them armed, at nearby Hermosillo Park at about 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

After spotting an armed man in a backyard in the 12000 block of 161st Street, the deputies asked a resident of the home to secure a pit bull so that they could search the yard, but the dog ran into the street and attacked the sheriff’s K-9, the sheriff’s department said.

A deputy shot the pit bull, which later died. The deputies’ dog, Tosca, was expected to survive.

Eddie Perez, the pit bull’s owner, told KABC-TV Channel 7 that he didn’t believe deputies needed to ki*l his animal and that he had hired an attorney.

“I’m telling the sheriff’s, ‘Taser my dog, Taser my dog.’ His exact words were, ‘No, shoot that [expletive] dog,’ ” Perez said.
