On May 11, 2012, Easton PA police were forced to shoot and kill a pit bull that tried to attack them during a drug raid at Ferry Street.  As described in The Morning Call, one of the defendants had a pit bull with him as he tried to escape.  The dog tried to attack the pursuing police officers who then shot it in self-defense.
