This is in response to Eric Grace attacking the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office and county Animal Control officers in his letter, “Reader appalled by dog shooting.”
Mr. Grace, the sheriff’s deputies were called out because Animal Control is not staffed 24/7.
I think the deputy acted appropriately in defending himself and others.
They took an oath to serve and protect all the citizens of Lancaster County. If the dog made an attempt to harm someone, then he acted accordingly.
