Justice for ICE Pitbull killed by police in his own yard


ICE was a 1 year old deaf pitbull. Unfortunately I never had the honor to meet him or his family. On March 3, 2012 he was shot in his own yard by Ansonia, CT police in a supposed case of mistaken identity. I found his story on Facebook and later discovered his page and felt compelled to share is story. . here is the Facebook link so you can read it on your own.


The Ansonia Police received a call stating that there was a pitbull that had just bitten someone. The responding Officer in their search of this "biting" dog came across ICE. He made his own judgment and shot ICE in the neck. Killing him! In the video you can clearly see that ICE was showing NO SIGNS OF AGGRESSION, NO LUNGING, NO SNARLING NOT EVEN WALKING OVER TO GREET THE OFFICER. ICE STOOD AT THE BOTTOM OF HIS STEPS IN HIS YARD WAGGING HIS TAIL. This DEAF PITBULL NEVER HEARD IT COMING! If you are as disgusted and outraged at this as I am please read, sign and share this petition. Demand answers from the Ansonia CT Police Department Office. I strongly believe that this "officer" should be brought up on animal cruelty charges and have to answer to the public. If you agree please sign this petition
