A pit bull dog is recovering after it was shot during a Willard drug raid last month.

Eight Willard police officers and a part-time Greenwich police officer responded to 631 Pleasant St., Willard, to use a drug-related search warrant. The incident happened just before 2 p.m. Dec. 19.

The dog that was shot remains at an area veterinarian clinic, having had its rear left leg amputated. Another pit bull fled the scene and was still on the run as of Thursday.

A story about the dogs and drug investigation was published in Friday's Reflector.

Awe poor dog this is the sad part. The dogs get bad reps cause of the owners that raise them wrong! NOT the breed its self!

I would have done the same as the officers did. Shot the dogs, running at me out of a drug house...sorry for the animals but wouldnt have them tearin me apart, or chance it. Still say someone should mix all these druggies up a "good" batch of drugs an lettem have at it.

Agreed. As a law enforcement officer, if a pit bull is charging me, in my quick assessment, its either take the dog out or let him chew me apart.

Ohh really pig? Nice to see how tough u losers really are. If a cop ever thought about shooting MY pitbull I'd have their ass on a silver platter. Pits are used as k9 units across the country and these dogs were harmless if the crooked cops would use tasers like they should none of this would of happened.
