Rockford - Narcotics Officers were forced to shoot a pit bull after they busted down the door to a booby trapped drug house.
The Winnegago county Metro narcotics unit officers shot the pit bull more than nine times as it continued to charge at the officers.
"It came flying out the door," said Sgt. Richard McMahon, head of the narcotics unit. "We shot it nine times, and still it didn't even faze the dog."
