It's a bizarre story, where the dog and drunk husband were just hanging around the wife's dead and decomposing body. But I was impressed by the way the cops handled the Great Dane: It's a little funny that they told the dog to "leave". But then when she didn't, they didn't shoot her. DUH! Is this so hard? Granted it's a Great Dane, and they usually are pretty composed, but they are quite large and intimidating. I'm sure they could have made up some story about how they feared for their lives and had to shoot her, but instead they took the extra time to call animal control. I know many of the other stories involve raids and such, where I guess there isn't time to call animal control, but there have been an abundance of stories where the cops just shoot a dog because, well, it barked, or whatever.
