COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) -- Northern Idaho officials say a report about the fatal shooting of a dog inside a van by a Coeur d'Alene police officer is nearly complete.
 
Interim Police Chief Ron Clark told media sources Friday that the report is about 300 pages and will be reviewed by three internal police officials and an outside police official.

 He says a final evaluation will be done by an independent use-of-force expert.
 
Police on July 9 put out a statement that an officer responding to a report of a suspicious van had shot and killed a "vicious pit bull" that lunged for an officer's face.
