Officers in Colorado shot and killed a(nother) dog when they SHOWED UP AT THE WRONG ADDRESS…after the shooting an officer told the dog’s owner,
“You need to calm down. You can get a new dog.”
My littlest dog’s name is Ziggy…as if this story wouldn’t get me right and properly riled and ranting anyways…the coincidental name just makes this hit really close to home. Since when did officers become such scaredy cats, I wonder? Why are so many of them so eager to pull the trigger and murder INNOCENT pets?? If they have to carry out violence against animals, couldn’t they at least use bean-bag rounds, HALT…a stick….ANYTHING OTHER THAN THEIR GUNS???
Before I smash my keyboard typing in anger, I’ll keep the rest of my thoughts to myself and get on with sharing the article…
The Center claims the 8-year-old blue heeler/border collie mix named Ziggy was killed by the deputies.
The Animal Law Center says the shooting occurred in the 5400 block of Tennyson Street in Denver.
Jeff Fisher, the owner of Ziggy, as well as Jennifer Edwards, a lawyer and founder of the Animal Law Center, spoke to media members at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Fisher claimed deputies opened his door at 8 p.m. on Monday. Ziggy ran outside and the deputies shot his 35-pound dog three times.
He claims deputies had the wrong address.
“They just opened the door and opened fire on my dog,” Fisher said sobbing.”
