Bakersfield Police say it was self defense
An off-duty Taft Police officer shot and killed a pit bull that turned on her after attacking her dog at her Bakersfield home Thursday morning.
Veronica Sandoval fired multiple times at the pit bull and killed it in the yard of her southwest Bakersfield home.
Bakersfield Police investigated and said it was “ a clear cut case of self defense.”
Sandoval told the BPD she had had repeated problems with the aggressive dog in the past.
Thursday, about 8 a.m. she went into her yard after hearing her two small dogs barking.
At that point, the dog charged her and she fired her weapon multiple times, killing the pit bull.
