Crown Point police responded to a frantic 9-1-1 call from a resident yesterday that ended up in two beloved pets being shot. Deputy Chief Janda confirmed to the Northwest Indiana Gazette via telephone that a frantic woman called and stated “there are wolves or coyotes killing my cat.” The woman further reported that her husband tried to save the cat and was now being attacked. Officers responded and found the cat being attacked by two animals which they did not immediately recognize as dogs. The dogs had no collars or tags. The officers pepper sprayed the dogs in an attempt to get them to flee. When that did not work, at least one officer fired on the animals killing them.
The Gazette is still attempting to reach the owners of the dogs for comment.
