A woman’s lawsuit against the Ottawa police for killing her two pit bulls has been dismissed. Ontario Superior Court Justice Denis Power found he was in no position to “second guess” the decision of tactical officers to shoot Lisa Olszewski’s two dogs during a search of her home. “In my opinion, they were confronted with an attack or attacks by two vicious pit bulls, an attack that put them at serious risk of injury or worse.” He also noted that pit bulls can be very dangerous animals even if their owner viewed them as beautiful, well-behaved pets.
