Lamont, CA - A sheriff's deputy shot and killed a pit bull Sunday after it allegedly killed another dog and threatened several children. When deputies tried to capture the dog for animal control the pit bull became aggressive.
The senior deputy at the sheriff's department said the officer “needed to protect herself from that dog and shot the dog."The dog was shot at least twice. It’s unknown who the owner of the dog was or if the children were injured.

This happens nearly everday somwhere in the United States.
The question still remains...How much money does shooting hundreds of beserking Pit Bulls drain from city and county law enforcement budgets?
