"Our officers are trained to protect others and to protect themselves. It's very unfortunate that an animal was hurt, but at the same time our officers responded according to our policy and that is it keep others safe and themselves safe. I'm very supportive of the officer's actions," Muhlenberg County Sheriff Curtis McGehee said.
The owner of the home, Brad Saulsberry, has been charged with trafficking a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and harboring a vicious animal.
