This was not about humane despatch it was about incapacitating a threat
Not really a difficult question is it? Whilst it was not causing a problem they were trying to resolve the situation peacefully. It was only when it started becoming a threat that they had to up the anti!The question has to be, how/ was was allowed to go on for 2 1/2 hours?
This was police in a full on power trip. I know the owner of the animal. They tried & tried to get the police to leave so they could sort it out but plod wouldn't. Said they were in charge of the situation as it was a risk to public & this was the outcome. Not good for anyone in the end
A lot of views, over 550, but only less than 20 responders to this item, any thoughts why. My own view is that taken that the incident lasted for over two and half hours, and I wasn't present, or seen the video maybe a non lethal resolution may have had a better outcome?
