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.

    1. Doesn’t make any difference when it comes time to face the attacking dog, and they’re not allowed to shoot the owners, anyway.

  1. Good riddance to some terrible animals. We are living in crazy times. There’s even some so called “Christians” that value the life of a dog more than their fellow humans. It’s so pathetic.

  2. I’d like to know who the owner is.

    There are a couple of pitbulls that have been posted on viciously running after neighbors during the summer 2022, but nothing has been done about it. It’s all on video in Kenosha. The owners haven’t been held accountable. It’s the way the owners have trained the dogs. I have nothing against Pitbulls, I do have something against the owners though!

  3. Definitely the owners fault? why would you train them to be aggressive! I hope a nice lawsuit & huge fine! Do us all a favor & don’t have any more animals!

  4. If Sgt. Jeff Galley can sleep at night, good for him!
    Sgt. Dogkiller maybe gets a medal of Honor for his bravery.

    1. How about you go try catching two vicious dogs that run through yards and everything else and try to keep track of them!! Dumb ass!!

      Glad they were shot! There is mo room in this world for dogs that people train to be vicious!! Too bad the police couldn’t have shot the owner too!!
