Fla. officer shoots 2 pit bulls during attack

Editor's Note — When it comes to "dangerous breeds" and dog attacks, the type of force you use to subdue it depends on the situation.

Street Survival instructor Jim Glennon puts it this way: "If you know there will be an animal there ahead of time, bring tranquilizer rounds or rubber pellets. But if you're going to a house for a drug raid and an animal lunges at you, it's probably been trained to kill, so you'd use lethal force."
