Kelsey Markou was walking her family dog, named Dog, when a pitbull attacked. She tried to get the pitbull off of Dog, and a man walking by called the police.
When the police officer arrived, Kelsey told the officer which dog was hers and which was the one who attacked. Kelsey’s mother describes what happened next:
“He got 5 to 6 feet away from the dogs and just started shooting at them.”
Kelsey estimated the police officer fired eight shots. The pitbull was taken to the vet. Dog was dead at the scene.
Kelsey’s mom explained:
“I want them to be accountable and really look at the way the situation was handled. We’re traumatized, and I have a daughter that’s going to be traumatized the rest of her life. She’ll never forget it. She hasn’t been sleeping. That’s a hard pill to swallow.”
