WOMAN CALLS POLICE FOR HELP WHO SHOWED UP AND KILLED HER SERVICE DOG

Jennifer Weir thought she was going to receive help for her stolen property last month when she called police to report a theft. However, when an officer arrived, instead of helping her, he shot her dog Juniper, killing her.

According to Weir, she called the Mount Carmel police after she came home and found several items missing and assumed her ex-husband had robbed her. Weir says her ex has a restraining order and is not supposed to come on or near the property.

When the officer arrived at Weir’s residence, Weir began showing him around the property. When the pair was in the backyard, Juniper, the 11-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier with hip dysplasia, approached the officer.

Weir said that Juniper was only able to approach the dog because her ex-husband left the gate open, which would end up being a fatal move.

According to Weir, as the dog approached the officer, he quickly pulled out his pistol and fired a shot, hitting Juniper. Instead of allowing Weir to render aid to the dog and possibly save her life, however, the officer shot once more, killing her.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This, in a sane world, should never have happened.

And most probably, and unfortunately, it will be citizens of the town who will wind up paying for this, in some kind of lawsuit.

Bur I think that every police department in this country should be mandated to have a fund to pay for incidents like this, so that citizens who had nothing to do with this, are spared financial hardship.

Secondly, this officer should pay the costs for another companion dog for this woman; companion dogs save lives, and training them is a large commitment of time and energy.
