Video of police officers in California shooting and killing a rottweiler while arresting his owner is hard to watch, but has been viewed more than 640,000 times since the incident happened Sunday.
A young rottweiler was shot and killed by Hawthorne police officers as they arrested his owner Sunday for obstructing justice at a crime scene. The dog was shot four times and the incident was videotaped by the man, who has a pending court case of police harassment against Hawthorne officers. (Screengrab (Gabriel Martinez/YouTube))
