Video of Hawthorne, Calif., police shooting man’s dog draws ire

A video recorded in California shows you can’t do too much to ensure the safety of your pet.

A man put his Rottweiler in his car before submitting to police arrest at a crime scene, but the dog jumped out the window and followed him. Police shot and killed the loose dog.

The man has a history with the Hawthorne, Calif., police department — he filed a lawsuit alleging excessive use of force last year, according to this L.A. Times story. The Times story online includes a video of the incident that aired on a local TV station. Warning: The video is disturbing.
