LA Deputies Shot Dog, Let It Bleed To Death, Owner Alleges In Lawsuit

A lawsuit filed Wednesday alleges that LA sheriff’s deputies threw a chair at a pit bull, shocked it twice in the face with a stun gun, shot it twice with a firearm and then allowed it to bleed to death.

The lawsuit claims that the 5-year-old pit bull, named Chico Blue, was victim to “inexplicable cruelty” after deputies responded to reports of a shooting in Pico Rivera on Dec. 6, 2012.

Following the controversial shooting of a Rottweiler by Hawthorne police last month, the suit says Chico’s death is “part of a larger trend in which numerous animals have been harmed or killed by careless law enforcement officials.”
