I believe Star would recover quicker if she could see her human. She is probably feeling scared and confused wondering why he's not there with her!!! After all they are family!!!

When I was 15 I witnessed a law enforcement officer shoot a dog 13 times before she finally died. He thought she had rabies. He did not wait for animal control. He did not feel bad about it. He was flirting with me at the same time. A deviant sexual hostility released as violence against a poor defenseless animal. I am 60 now and always think of her as I hear of other dogs helplessly go down. This coward and show off would not listen to my screams of protestations. My mother later...

When I was 15 I witnessed a law enforcement officer shoot a dog 13 times before she finally died. He thought she had rabies. He did not wait for animal control. He did not feel bad about it. He was flirting with me at the same time. A deviant sexual hostility released as violence against a poor defenseless animal. I am 60 now and always think of her as I hear of other dogs helplessly go down. This coward and show off would not listen to my screams of protestations. My mother later followed up with the autopsy report as she was as enraged. I think if she and other adults had been there to witness and protest on this quiet country road, it would have turned out differently. This poor beloved girl was dehydrated and had distemper. A few years ago in TN, a officer shot and killed the family dog as she jumped from the car when he ordered the driver (her guardian) out of the car. The vehicle was filled with family members on a road trip including small children. The officer immediately began firing and killed the family dog in front of the children. There was no provocation to shoot. She just jumped out of the driver's side like any interested dog would do. No growling, no aggressive behavior. The dog was a bully mix and this was the reason. It was later determined that this officer had absolutely no reason to pull this car in the first place as he made a mistake and should have pulled another one. I hope these officers and their precinct pay out the nose or this horrendous ignorant error in judgement. I hope a law comes into place to keep these arrogant show offs in control of their weapons when it comes to all animals who are confused and doing what they do naturally when under stress and guided by fear. What will happen with Star now?

It is my humble opinion that if you want to get down to the REAL problem, ask the world's media to show the whole truth behind their sensastionalised reporting of attacks by "dangerous" dogs. That is what has given so many wonderful breeds of loyal and loving dogs their "dangerous" reputation. Over the years, I have seen, read and listened to hundreds of reports, from across the world, that have condemned dogs like Star as "dangerous" without a shred of genuine proof.

It is my humble opinion that if you want to get down to the REAL problem, ask the world's media to show the whole truth behind their sensastionalised reporting of attacks by "dangerous" dogs. That is what has given so many wonderful breeds of loyal and loving dogs their "dangerous" reputation. Over the years, I have seen, read and listened to hundreds of reports, from across the world, that have condemned dogs like Star as "dangerous" without a shred of genuine proof. ANY breed of dog has the capacity to be dangerous from a chihuauha to a great dane. It all depends on their upbringing, just the same way as with our children.

If a parent brought up a child to be vicious, they would have the full weight of the law come down on them. The same principle should apply to dogs and their owners. Nobody has the right to assume a dog is vicious just by it's appearance, just like the thought of whether or not a hoodie and jean wearing teenager is a mugger. So let's see irresponsible owners being penalised heavily for the way they teach their dogs to be vicious. The police officers involved in this instance should be charged with attempted murder for the way they made assumptions about Star and their total disregard for proper procedure. They should also be thrown off the police force and banned for life from owning any animals or firearms. Star should be hailed as a hero for having the determination to come through this ordeal and face up to the rest of her innocent life. If anyone should foot the bill for Star's medical treatment, it's those who did the damage in the first place.

It is also my opinion that the moral responsibility rests firmly with the misrepresentations of the media over the years, in their unjustified condemnation of certain breeds. In the wake of a spate of dog attacks in the 1980s and 90s, the UK government rushed the Dangerous Dogs Act through parliament, which started the media circus of "dangerous breeds" and led to thousands of family pets being wrongly destroyed because of their breed. This came about because of the flawed Act that was based on wrong attitudes towards certain dog breeds and false claims of dog attacks, among a long list of maladministration instances of the Act. The media jumped on their sensationalising bandwaggon and did untold damage to the reputations of many loving and loyal breeds.

I know that I have covered a few angles here but this post includes what I have seen and experienced at first hand over the years. I very nearly had a dog siezed because of his breed, a Rottwieller cross, when someone decided that he was a viscious dog and faked dog bites on his arm to get him destroyed. Hooch was a rescue dog who I had befriended and gained the trust of. It was only because of most of his teeth being missing, due to the abuse that he had suffered, that I was able to prove the bites fake and keep him. Less than a year later he died. Cause of death was not clear so I will never know for certain why he died. He looked mean but that was not Hooch. He was nothing but gentle and loving.

I'm sure that there will be many different thoughts out there from all kinds of people about what I have written here. Have your say, I will answer as many as I can and I tank you for reading this.

hope these cops get their ass busted for this outrageous event. these protectors, I use that WORD very loosely, are trained in situations as this to react in a professional and SAFE manner. Imagine if one of the bullets had rickocheted and killed an innocent bystander. there would be hell to pay then, huh? WHEN ONE HAS A FIREARM AND DISCHARGES THAT WEAPON THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR WHERE THAT BULLIT ENDS UP. these morons were shooting at the asphalt or concrete and had no worldly idea where...

WHEN ONE HAS A FIREARM AND DISCHARGES THAT WEAPON THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR WHERE THAT BULLIT ENDS UP. these morons were shooting at the asphalt or concrete and had no worldly idea where that bullit may come to rest. THERE COULD HAVE BEEN A PERSON HURT OF KILLED IN THIS INSTANCE OF INSANITY FROM THESE FRIGGIN IDIOT MORONS. look at the stance of both idiots, they should have backed off and called the appropriate folks to handle the situation. then again, if they had entered the area like someone that had some common sense they may have been able to subdue Star in a sane manner. Bottom line, these idiots were outside the realm of reality when this happened. GUESS BOTH OF THEM WERE CHICKEN SHIT SCARED OF THE DOG. CANDY ASSES THEY ARE AND THEY NEED FIRED AND CHARGED WITH ANIMAL CRUELTY. TRAINED AND PREPARED FOR SITUATIONS LIKE THIS. LOOKS LIKE THESE DIMWITS MISSED CLASS THAT DAY. BUST THEIR LOW LIFE ASS AND CHARGE THEM.

the big brave police officers as usual have to shoot something or someone. So now they are shooting innocent animals. If they wanted to round up Star, why couldn't they tranquillize her so she didn't suffer. If her owner did not come forward, is she not better off without him. Between the pitbull dislikers, the ignorant and the police now taking pot shots, what chance does this lovely breed of dog stand. The whole lot of them make me sick!

I haven't been following this sad story but I would like to know if the police officers have been prosecuted. They should and should go to prison too. There has been too many shootings of dogs lately and nothing much seems to be happening to control the issue. It is almost as the police force is deteriorating fast. The quality of the officers is hardly the same. All one seems to see is a bunch of hysterical creatures that shoot right and left simply because they can.

Crystal Hunt I applaud you! Thank you so much for caring and snuffing this out! Who is the legal party investigating this case? Is it a case yet? Sounds like maybe PETA might be interested? The legal party that was mentioned can they locate the real owner? If so then locate the owner and help the owner realize he was taken for a ride and given no choice! Looks like a great case and would help to correct this deplorable UNETHICAL situation that was an absolute tragedy with no warrant to justify shooting Star! We are watching the biblical story of the two women fighting over the baby finally this case goes before King Solomon to decide which the REAL mother is. King Solomon says I will cut the baby in half and you can both have him. The Real Mother (like the REAL ANIMAL COMPANION or OWENER that is the problem here humans look at everything as an object 'owning' rather than loving and being a part of another) steps forward and says give the baby to this other women. King Solomon is very wise. He knows that the 'real' mother would not allow her baby to be killed JUST LIKE THIS REAL 'OWNER' aka animal companion of Stars! I say lets pray and see the power of Gods light to shine truth on this very sad and the irresponsible authority’s reaction in the situation not only shooting an innocent dog but firing in close range of children? Really, this officer has a loose and edgy finger with no sense of calm to sustain himself in crisis situations. Give back Star to her real owner! City is entirely responsible for the bill and ALL FUTURE MEDICAL COSTS FOR STAR I MIGHT ADD! Apologize! Make Star a She'ro and clean up this problem of mislead authorities reacting without just cause.
