Norton was a friendly, fun, loving
Pit-bull unjustly shot 6 times in the head on his own property by the
Lake County, Illinois Sheriff's department. Norton
and his housemate Bailey got out of their fence today and were found on
their own property. At which time a Lake County Illinois Sheriff's
Department officer cornered him in and shot him 6 times in the head on
his own property before Animal Control arrived. The officer said he
showed signs of aggression, witnesses disagree. Animal Control rushed
him to a hospital in an attempt to save his life. They had threatened to
shoot him before while he was in his fence, it seems as though they
found their opportunity. Please help us receive justice for Norty!
*Update* After several hours detained for "paperwork" Bailey was reunited with her family.
