According to Kenosha Police Sgt. Jeff Galley, Kenosha Police officers had little choice but to shoot and kill two vicious German Shepherd dogs this morning. According to Galley, the two dogs severely attacked a man in the 7300 block of 23rd Ave at 7:30 am this morning. The man sustained substantial injuries to his lower leg. The dogs were reported to be highly aggressive and were seen charging numerous people, vehicles, and officers. The dogs then ran east on 75th St and north on Sheridan Rd. Galley said the two dogs represented a “clear and present danger” to area residents and children making their way to Grewenow School. Police tried for about a half hour to locate the dogs’ owners and or contain the dogs.
“One of the dogs was shot on 9th Ave near 69th Street. The second dog was shot in the 700 block of 69th. Neither survived. The dogs’ owner was eventually found and notified. Appropriate citations to the owner will be forthcoming by our CSOs,” said Sgt. Galley.
Much of the dogs’ behavior was caught on Officers’ body-worn cameras.
