PORTLAND POLICE SHOOTINGS OF DOGS
1992-2011


Compiled by Portland Copwatch.
Please credit Portland Copwatch in any republication.
Portland Copwatch regrets any errors and welcomes corrections and any further information on these or other incidents.
In our files, we show 20 dogs shot (and 17 killed) plus one Taser death in 16 incidents over 20 years.** In some cases, the officers have a history of shooting. In others, we wonder whether officers itching to use a gun thought that killing a dog would not be controversial.
