ALERT!!! - Jessie T. Wolf — LiveJournal
Not exactly a cop but a peace officer, I'm assuming it's a branch of the OSPCA that enforces animal removals. And yes, your analysis is correct. Without a warrant, they can come in, see that your dog is a pit bull or 'pit-bull-esque' and take them away to be destroyed.
I myself an contributing $100 to this cause, simply because I refuse to let this injustice continue.
peace officer or cop, it's defacto same, just agent of state administration... But anyway it's dump and I have no money to help :(
