Menlo Park police shoot puppy

There's a story on the front page of the Palo Alto Daily Post this morning (7/11) about the Menlo Park police department shooting a 7-month-old pit bull puppy. A policeman apparently felt intimidated by the dog. The bullet went through puppy's head, missed its brain, and went out the other side. Seems like the police officer overreacted to the pup. The dog's vet is quoted as saying he's not vicious but more like a "love bug." I think this shooting is an outrage worthy of a full investigation and possible arrest of the policeman on animal cruelty charges.
