Pit Bull Shot Dead in Hunters Point

Categories: Animals
This isn't the actual dog
Well, this isn't your typical Bayview-Hunters Point slaying. Police are looking for the animal-hater who shot and killed a 1-year-old pit bull for no apparent reason on Friday evening.

According to CBS News, the cops were called to the 200 block of West Point Road at about 4:30 p.m. on Friday on reports of a pup bleeding in the street. When police arrived, they found a sad sight: a young pit bull dead from a gunshot wound to the chest.

The woman who reported the incident said she was inside her house when she heard gunshots. She later went outside and found the wounded dog lying in a pool of blood.

A San Francisco Animal Care and Control officer took the pit bull to an animal hospital where it later died from its injuries, Kat Brown, deputy director of the agency, told CBS.

A necropsy revealed the dog was a female.

Sadly, police have been unsuccessful in trying to find any witnesses to the shooting, and nobody has come forward to claim the dog as their own. But prior to the shooting, the dog had been frequently seen running loose around the neighborhood, authorities said.

Anyone with information about this shooting case is encouraged to call the Police Department's anonymous tip line at 575-4444, or send a tip by text message to TIP411.

I am so sad right now! Who the hell does shit like this? I can't believe someone would intentionally hurt an innocent animal..... This Bullshit about Pit Bulls being aggressive for no reason is just that Bull Shit! I've had the pleasure of being around them, some of the sweetest dogs I've ever met!

They ARE aggressive, vicious dogs. The one who killed our cat had previously killed two cats AND two dogs. OPD did nothing but Antioch PD dispatched the pit and evicted the black trash owner from public housing. All pits need to euthanized and if we could throw in the lumpen trash owners that would be great !


 You are an idiot Marcy! Your comment black trash and euthanizing proves that point. How did the pit get your cat? Did you let your cat run around outside like a tool? Are you sure it was a pit? So many times the dog actually is not a pit but the lame ass media keeps portraying any pit looking dog as vicious. Do you even know anything about dogs? I seriously doubt that you do so shut the hell up.  Why don't you check your facts jackass.!!!


"A necropsy revealed the dog was a female."Surely AC&C isn't that retarded, lol!
