An arrest warrant has been issued for a Beaver County woman who allegedly told police she would “kill them” after they shot her dog earlier this week.
According to Stephanie Lipinski, a police officer fatally shot her 8-month-old lab Molly after a neighbor reported it was running loose in the neighborhood.
Authorities told Channel 11’s Amy Marcinkiewicz that the dog was aggressive and went after two different neighbors. One of those neighbors alerted police.
Investigators said when officers got close to the dog, it became aggressive and they were forced to shoot it.
Neighbors who live in the area told Marcinkiewicz that Lipinski’s dogs are so aggressive that they have to keep bats on their porches to protect themselves.
Lipinski said her dogs are not aggressive.
“I just can’t believe he did this. The dog wouldn’t hurt anyone,” said Lipinski.
Lipinski told me that wasn't Molly's permanent home. She was staying with her boyfriend for about two weeks.
