APD officer shoots dog

By David Miller

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany woman who lives on Johnson Road, returned home to discover that her home had been burglarized over the weekend.

When Syennie Braithwaite, who was just moving to Albany, went to her home 8:15AM Monday, she discovered clothing and gaming equipment missing, and called police to investigate.

She said that her neighbor's pit bull/terrier mixed dog was roaming loose on her property.

Owner Zellean Mackey came and collected her dog, but he broke away from her, and came at Braithwaite and nipped on her buttocks.

Officer Terry Brown stepped between the dog and the victim, and tried to ward off the dog with his night stick, and told the dog's owner to control the animal.

When the dog could not or would not be contained, and continued toward the officer, baring its teeth and snarling, he fired one shot from his weapon, and killed the dog.
