Ohio Family Outraged Over Police Shooting Dog

(Blue Ash, OH) -- A family from Blue Ash, Ohio is outraged after finding out the police shot and killed their dog.

Scott and Sharon Bullock gave the Chihuahua mix to their son for his birthday a few years ago.

When they returned home last Friday they found blood, three bullets and a note to call the Blue Ash Police Department about their dog.

Apparently the dog got out of their backyard and the two officers couldn't catch him.

Cops say they had him cornered on the front porch but when they reached out to pick him up, the dog bit one of the officers.

That's when they shot it three times.

The Bullocks admit they were wrong to leave their dog outside, but say they just can't come to terms with why two grown men had such a problem handling a five-pound dog.

They say the SPCA should have been contacted about coming out to get the dog.

The officer who shot the Bullocks' beloved Chihuahua insists he was merely following procedure.
