When police and animal control are called out to a situation, their first priority is of course the safety of humans.
Beyond that, though, they also care about the animals that they’ve been called out to catch. They don’t want to do unnecessary harm when it’s unwarranted.
When a dog began attacking her car, a woman in Dalton, Georgia, suggested police do a truly unconscionable thing. Fortunately, they didn’t, but the woman’s request and the video she posted to Facebook Live have now gone viral.
