Woman upset after police shoot dog | CJOnline.com

A Topeka woman said she is seeking answers after a police officer opened fire and shot her family’s 3-year-old pit bull dog in the early hours of Friday morning behind her home in central Topeka.

The dog was taken by police to a local veterinarian’s office for treatment. The dog’s condition wasn’t known as of Friday morning, but police said it was expected to survive.

The incident was reported around 1:30 a.m. Friday in an alley behind a residence at 1532 S.W. Central Park as two police officers were responding to a call.

Police Lt. Chuck Haggard said a dog “charged” toward one of the officers from the back yard of a residence. The officer responded by shooting the dog.

Paula Rodecap, 44, said the staffordshire pit bull terrier named Jackson Smore suffered at least one gunshot wound to his right hind quarter.
