On Sunday afternoon Hamilton Township Police had to use deadly force to control an aggressive dog on the attack. At about 4 p.m. Sunday, two large, aggressive Rottweilers were running loose in the Harding Lakes section of Mays Landing. They entered a playground and approached three children and one adult. One of the dogs bit the aunt of a 7 year-old girl as she attempted to protect the child. NBC-40 reports that when police arrived, the same dog attacked a police officer, who then fired three shots, killing the dog. Charges could be filed against the dog’s owner pending an investigation.
