Ellisville man wants justice after police shot his dog

ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) - Jessie Blackledge says he's heartbroken after an Ellisville police officer shot and killed his eight-month-old lab mix along with three other dogs in the Rocky Creek Mobile Park on Highway 11.

This all happened when someone reported a child had been bitten while waiting on the school bus.

Blackledge says police can't prove it was his dog who bit the child.

However police say the city has a leash law ordinance and an ordinance against pit bulls or pit bull mixes.
