The animal was returned to the owner. The Animal Control spokesman stated that since the animal did not actually harm the officer, they had no cause to remove it. I would take issue with that as did the officer involved but...
That is terrible, so because the officer was fast enough to protect himself they are allowed to keep a dangerous animal
. It sickening that someone has to be hurt from an attack for them to do whats right. Being attacked 2 weeks ago has been one of the most painful and emotional things I have ever had to go through, it really boggles my mind how someone would want to keep the dog or purposely teach a dog to behave like that.
Anyway, I deleted half of what I wrote... had the strong urge to use profanity. I just hope no one else gets hurt.
