In the past month, Seattle Police have shot three dogs after the animals displayed aggressive and threatening behavior. While some question whether or not the dogs needed to be killed, the police argue that the dogs were either charging them at the time of the shooting or threatening to attack civilians.

For the second time in less than a month, Seattle Police shot and killed a dog after the dog displayed aggressive and dangerous behavior. In the most recent incident, Seattle Police were responding to a domestic violence disturbance when they found a 55-year-old woman on the ground in her house with two dogs appearing to attack her. Both dogs were shot after allegedly charging the officers. One dog died of its injuries.

More insight into the incident revealed that the woman was the instigator of a domestic dispute against her 57-year-old brother. The dogs, a lab and a pit bull mix, had been impounded multiple times in the last two years for menacing behavior, violating the city’s leash law, and other issues.

In a similar Seattle dog attack incident that took place earlier this year, Washington Police shot a pit bull after it was acting aggressively towards a neighbor on New Year’s Day.
