Dog shooting

In 1977 artist Tom Otterness shot a dog. This week, another artist depicted this in a near perfect Otterness-style statue, now housed in the 14th Street subway station.
"[The police] were telling people standing around to get back, but a lady was standing behind the passed-out guy got a little too close, so the dog nips at her."
A Brooklyn officer who fatally shot a pit bull who attacked him and his partner two-and-a-half years ago has been docked 10 vacation days: “It is an unusually heavy penalty for a dog shooting."
