Lewiston Police to Receive Extra Training after Shooting Dog
LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) — A shooting that left a bull terrier without a leg has also changed things at the Lewiston Police Department.
The Lewiston Tribune reports that Lewiston Police Chief Chris Ankeny said Thursday that he plans to invest in training so his officers can be better prepared for dog encounters. An officer in November fired two shots at deaf bull terrier Mr. Chang at Sacajawea Junior High after a teacher reported an aggressive dog on campus.
Mr. Chang survived, but his leg had to be amputated and owner Lauren Rose HuiHui says he isn't the same. Ankeny says the shooting was justified, but that training to stop such incidents in the future will be worthwhile. Mormon Church's 150th temple to open soon in Provo
