Dog shot to death by cops afer they jump into the dogs enclosed yard

ARLETA -- Police nabbed five stolen car suspects after a foot chase in Arleta today, a series of events that also included a dog being shot dead by the pursuing officers, a Idiot cop said.
The incident began when officers from the LAPD Mission Division began following a vehicle filled with five stolen car suspects about 3:10 p.m., said the police spokesman, Officer Cleon Joseph. Police were not immediately able to say if the car itself was stolen, he said.
"At some point the suspects stopped the car and ran from the vehicle into the neighborhood around the 13400 block of Branford Street," Joseph said.
"I don't have the details of what happened but the officers shot and killed a dog sometime during the pursuit," Joseph said.
Police eventually caught all five suspects after a foot chase, Joseph said.
The fatal shooting of the dog will be investigated as an officer- involved-shooting, just like any other police shooting case, Joseph said.

Dog Outsmarts Two Cops: Why is this not surprising?

Long Beach Police Department officers investigating an unauthorized entry at Veteran's Memorial Stadium were charged by a dog that they shot at but missed, a spokesperson said Thursday.
"Uniformed Special Services Officers assigned to Long Beach City College were investigating an open gate at the stadium," Long Beach Police Department spokeswoman Nancy Pratt said in a statement.
"When the officers entered the stadium, which was closed to the public, they observed a subject inside with his dog, a large mixed breed," Pratt continued. "The officers approached the subject to speak with him and as they did, a dog which was not on a leash, ran at the officers and an officer involved shooting occurred."
But the dog was not wounded, and it ran from the stadium at 5000 E. Lew Davis Street. Other officers followed the dog to its nearby home, where city Animal Care Services interviewed the dog owners. It was not clear if they were the same as the individual at the campus.


A dog fight ended with a hail of bullets in a Philadelphia suburb, leaving residents shocked and looking for answers.
The incident started on Friday at around noon when a stray dog got into a pickup truck at a red light in Chester, Pa., and began fighting with another pooch, NBCPhiladelphia.com reported.
Cops were called when the dogs couldn't be separated, and when they arrived, witnesses were stunned at the reaction. One officer shot at the dogs five times with a pistol, then another fired one blast from a shotgun. Both dogs were killed.
And this all went down right in front of Chester High School.
Tehran Freeman, a dog owner himself who lives down the block from the shooting, captured the incident on video with his cell phone and was outraged at the handling of the situation.
"I don't care how bad they try to make Chester seem, this is not a war zone, you don't do things like that," he told NBCPhiladelphia.com.
"I thought them as the police should be held to a higher standard and would have some type of procedure for breaking it up than actually pulling out your pistols in front of the high school."
Freeman told NBCNews.com that the bigger, more aggressive dog seemed to be a pit bull and had a leash, but the other smaller dog didn't. It was unclear who the owners were.
He said when he saw the police the "last thing that I thought would happen" is that they would open fire with their guns.
"It wasn't secure at all, I know bullets can ricochet and anything else -- you're trying to shoot two animals in the back of a metal vehicle, that bullet can go anywhere."
Chester police told NBCPhiladelphia.com that the incident was under investigation and at the time the animal control officer in the city was unavailable.
