Topeka Police discuss rights of protection after dog shot, killed

TOPEKA, Kan. – Our dogs are like family, but what happens when they leave our sight, and scare another person?

It is Topeka law that dogs need to be leashed. Therefore the owner of the loose dog did go against a City of Topeka ordinance. The owner who shot the loose dog did not.

Criminally, the owner of the loose dog does not have a case against the man who shot it, according to Topeka police. They do still have the option to take the case to civil court if they choose to do so.
