Police shoot two dogs, one dead

Police shot two dogs and killed one of them after the dogs reportedly charged officers Sunday morning, according to the Racine Police Department.

Officers were dispatched to 17th Street and Connolly Avenue around 9:30 a.m. Sunday for a report of two loose dogs, described as pit bulls, chasing children in the area.

The dogs also reportedly tried to attack a dog in the 1500 block of Grove Avenue and reportedly charged at officers as they arrived and attempted to exit their vehicles.

At that time, the tranquilizer gun was requested, according to the police department.

The dogs also traveled to the front yard of a home in the 1400 block of Deane Boulevard, at which time the dogs attacked a cat in the front yard of the home, police said.

While waiting for the tranquilizer gun to arrive, officers continued to witness aggressive behavior from the two dogs, at which time, due to the aggressive nature of the dogs, lethal force was used in the interest of public safety, the police department said in an emailed release.

One dog died on the scene, and the other dog ran to a driveway in the 1500 block of Deane Boulevard. That dog survived the initial shooting, police said, but may require surgery.
