The Fulton County Marshal's Department is investigating after a marshal shot and killed an Atlanta couple's dog while trying to serve a civil lawsuit, even though the target of the lawsuit moved out years ago, Channel 2 Action News reports
Seems like more and more of this happening lately....has mace / pepper spray, stopped working on dogs?

And they all seem to be Labs. I personally don't remember ever feeling threatened by a Lab, even one that's snarling, barking and running towards me.

Aren't Labs bred to have a weak bite, because their job is to retrieve dead ducks?

It does seem to be happening more frequently. And I expect that the reason it is happening more frequently is because the police officers have found out they can get away with it.

after reading the article as a dog owner I think that the owner should have kept his dog under control. It was free from a leash or a fence. It is not that different then the person who lets their dog run the neighborhood then the dog gets hit by a car. Who is responsible for that?

As much as I love my dogs, I have to agree with this statement.

It doesn't seem to apply in this case as it sounds like apartments or the like, but what about those who use the invisible fence?

Sounds like the officer could have easily returned to the inside of his vehicle as quickly as he was greeted by the animal.

No somebody needs to put their foot up someones butt for not getting their info right in the first place. Somebodies buddy got shot because this jackass wasn't where he was supposed to be. Just because he carries a badge don't make him right.

Is dog shooting taught one day one of LEO training? I know the feds are old hats at this...
It's what prompted the deaths at Ruby Ridge, and eventually resulted in a settlement paid by the Feds to Randy Weaver of $3.1 million.

I'll actually revise my statement to that dog does not look lab at all. except for that it is a dog. People think every dog is a lab. just do a search for labs on petfinder and you'll know what I mean.

I personally have a problem with dog owners who let their dogs loose in their neighborhoods. Dogs are territorial by nature and they start to tell every person and every dog in the neighborhood to stay away from their territory. It really is not considerate of the owner to let their dogs loose.
