Pit bull shot by Woonsocket officers, later euthanized | The Valley Breeze

A dog that reportedly charged at officers on Monday, June 16 was shot by police and later euthanized by Animal Control.

Viens was believed to be living in a camper outside the home, but as the officers approached, a large dog – identified by police as a pit bull – reportedly “charged from the camper and began viciously growling and snarling.” According to reports, the police began backing away from the vehicle, but when the animal again charged, both officers fired their weapons.

The pit bull was critically injured from the incident and was euthanized at the scene by Animal Control.
