Dog Shot Near I90

It's happened again- a dog was shot by police after it became a traffic hazard on I90 near Post Falls. This dog was also acting aggresively though, which probably sealed it's fate when it came to shooting it or trying to save it.

Here's the story.

Last time this happened, it turned into a huge debate as to whether officers did the right thing. The question was whether to save the dogs life and risk the lives of drivers or vice versa. Any further insight into this issue?
