COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS, Utah — A woman says she wants the Cottonwood Heights Police Department to foot the vet bill after an officer shot her dog while breaking up a fight.
Cottonwood Heights Police Sgt. Gary Young says a border collie was being walked by its owner on a sidewalk when a pit bull attacked it. Young says an officer in the area heard the commotion and tried to break up the dogs by kicking the pit bull and using a Taser.
The officer eventually shot the pit bull, which then let go of the collie.
Pit bull owner Nova Guymon tells the Deseret News (http://bit.ly/RMGwsR ) her dog didn’t do anything wrong because he attacked a dog that she believes walked onto its property. She also says the officer shouldn’t have used a gun.
