S.F. police looking for alleged puppy thief
December 10, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco police say they are on the lookout for a man who allegedly pepper-sprayed two homeless people before stealing their 6-week-old puppy near Buena Vista Park.

Officer Gordon Shyy says the victims were asleep in a van parked on Buena Vista Avenue West at about 6 a.m. Friday when someone began loudly knocking on the door.

The man told the victims that he was a police officer, Shyy says, but when they opened the door and asked to see his credentials, he pepper-sprayed them and grabbed the puppy.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the victims, a woman and a man, were temporarily blinded and didn’t see where the man fled.

Police are also looking for the dog, which is an American pit bull and Rhodesian Ridgeback mix.

What do you think of the recent White House decision to change the name of Alaska's Mt. McKinley to Denali?

It's good to go back to what most people in Alaska call it
Never thought about it
We should keep the name McKinley
It's OK, but would be nice to find a different way to honor McKinley
How about keeping both names?
