law enforcement: Stop Shooting Family Pets (Pit Bulls in general, but ALL Dogs)

This is being started in Honor of Star the NYC Pit Bull who was shot by NYC Police because her owner was in a seizure and was not able to control her, they approached and was charged by her, they shot her once and never even tended to the man after shooting her until the ambulance came to pick up the owner. I am in the beginning stages of creating a Law called "Star's Law" that will prevent this kind of act in the future. It will mandate a mandatory law stipulation where ALL Law Enforcement Officers are to be trained to call for an Animal Control Officer to come on scene and if necessary tranquilize the animal rather than shooting it.
If you have suffered the loss of a family pet by means of an officer shooting it, then I think you will be more than willing to sign this petition. also, if you truly love animals, I think you will also sign this petition.

      I have two beautiful dogs one is a pit bull who was abandoned at a city park the other a pit bull/lab mix, I love them both so much I could not bear the loss of them, I feel so bad for people who have lost their loving pets to a cop afraid of a pet!!!

      Too many happy trigger cops / jumpy cops. If they don't feel safe then maybe its time they found another career path. mandatory training should be enforced for cops as far as dealing with different types of animals / the protocol should be reviewed.

      Pets are, 90% of the time, extended family members - this simply cannot carry on!
