A Peel police officer shot and killed two dogs in Mississauga last night.
Several people called police after two American Pit Bull Terriers were found without their owners. The dogs were seen acting aggressively towards some people, including children in the Indian Road and Mississauga Road area around the dinner hour.
The officer was forced to use his gun after the dogs would not settle down.
"No officers were injured, no citizens were injured and no other pets or animals were injured," Sgt. Russ Anderson said.
The owner was later located but police have not yet laid charges.
