Posted: Updated:
LEBANON, Pa. (WHTM) -

A police officer shot and killed a dog when it charged him in Lebanon City.

Police were called to the area of 13th and Mifflin Streets for two dogs running loose. They found the dogs near the Brookside Apartments. Officers said that one of the dogs was a poodle, and the second was a pit bull.

When one of the officers approached the dogs, the pit bull growled, bared its teeth then charged the policeman. The officer was able to side step the dog, but when it began to charge again, he shot and killed it with his service weapon.

The owner of the pit bull has yet to be identified, and the investigation is still ongoing.
