|Off duty officer kills 4 month old pit bull puppy here is the story
"A four-month old puppy was shot and killed by an off-duty Chicago, Ill., police officer on Friday afternoon, and the puppy's owner is disputing the officer's recount of what took place, reported Sunday's CBS Chicago.
The man who shot the puppy, a pit bull, lives near the home where the puppy was shot and killed. He claims that he was walking with his son, who was riding a bike, and the pup charged them.
The man, an eight year veteran of the force, shot the 35 pound puppy eight times.
The puppy's guardian, Samantha Maglaya, claims that there was no child in sight, and her puppy was not aggressive, telling NBC Chicago:
He would sit in the yard and listen to the birds. He didn't even bark. He never growled,
He was the biggest baby.
Maglaya describes the moment just after the puppy, Maximus, was shot:
I ran to my dog and my kids were standing all around him screaming and crying,
Though the puppy was rushed to a veterinarian, he could not be saved.
Though the off-duty officer defends his actions, stating that the puppy charged his son, Maglaya disputes what took place, stating:
There was no son there. The whole time I was holding my dog and he was bleeding all over us and the kids are screaming and crying, his son was not there.
Neighbors support Maglaya's version; they have stated that the little boy was more than a block away and that the puppy never made a sound.
The incident is being investigated."
