On balance a dog's life is not worth that of a human being. But there is a double standard here when it involves the police (some justified given there status as LE and some not). If you "assault" a K9 dog you will be charged with assaulting an "officer" and if you point a gun at a police officer (human) you will be shot and killed (assuming he is within range and quicker at the trigger than you). Now let me ask you is not a family pet considered a member of one's "family" and do you not have the right to protect your family? If you point a gun (even a stun gun) at a K9 "officer" his handler would probably use deadly force to prevent it....and found to be justified. Part of the problem in this case is that the police chief told him to kill the dogs so that escalates it to above simply tasing the dog. I do not believe the officer needed a warrant on a domestic dispute call unless the call was for a neighbor and they were simply accessing his property. What should have happened is the man should have called off the dogs and the officer rescended his threat. What a shame.

Let's see. What if a COP "sicced his dog" on YOU and you pointed a tazer at it? What do you think would happen?
Dogs don't know any better. If you are trying to encroach upon a man's right to live his life, you should prepare for encountering everything that life entails without going in with weapons drawn.

Actually, the police were not called to his property, but were directed there by the complainant, who was about 100 yards away.
They did need a warrant, as no crime had been committed on this man's property, there was no crime in progress, and the man refused to grant access to his property.
Simple law 101 here folks.

It's about bloody time that someone had the cojones to defend himself and his family - dogs included.
