Dec 13, 1988 Rockford Pit Bull Used by Drug Dealers to Booby Trap Drug House

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."
