Idaho Falls Police Officer Shoots Pit Bull


In Idaho Falls, a police officer reportedly shot and wounded a dog for the second time, after the pit bull ran toward him in an aggressive manner.

According to the Idaho Falls Post-Register, the animal wounded by officer Malin Reynolds was later euthanized. In January, Reynolds shot and killed a pit bull when two dogs charged him and another officer.

Police spokeswoman Joelyn Hansen reportedly told the Post-Register that Reynolds shot the dog shortly before noon Oct. 30, while investigating reports of a homeless couple camping near the Snake River.
