Dog dies after being shot by Bibb deputy

Staff reportApril 11, 2014 

A Bibb County sheriff’s deputy shot an east Macon woman’s “vicious dog” Thursday evening after the dog attacked her, an incident report said.

Barbara Ann Waters, 49, of Glenridge Drive called for help shortly after 7 p.m.

When deputy Patrick Robinson got there, Waters was on her porch, “afraid to enter her house because her dog had attacked her before,” Robinson’s report said.

“While on the scene,” the report went on, “the dog entered the porch and I was unable to enter the house. I backed away then the dog calmed down.”

The report said the deputy then asked Waters to pet her dog.

“Mrs. Waters stated, ‘No he will attack me.’ Mrs. Waters then tried to pet her dog, he attacked her and I shot him,” the report said.

The dog, still alive when an animal control officer arrived, was taken to a veterinarian but died.
