ALL CAUGHT UP
Last week, my sweet rescued dog was gunned down by NYPD for no reason.
My sister and I were walking our three dogs in a public park when two of them started to scuffle with each other. We easily separated them and everyone was calmed down when an NYPD officer came onto the scene. She opened fire on Baby Girl, who wasn't even involved in the fight. Baby Girl was running away from the officer when she was hit.
NYPD killed my dog. No one was in danger until the officer started shooting. She also could have hit me or my sister, the residents who live near the park, or the kids who were playing basketball just a few feet away. My sister, a retired NYPD cop, identified herself and told the officer it was under control. I pleaded with the officer to stop shooting, but she just kept yelling at us to stay away from our own dogs.
When it was over, my sister and I weren't allowed to leave, even though we didn't know where Baby Girl was since she'd run away from the gunfire. The cops told us that they didn't know her whereabouts, but when we asked some neighborhood kids to help us find her, they found my dog lying in puddles of her own blood in a cage in the back of a police vehicle.
My brother arrived to rush her to a vet. The police offered to escort him and led him to a facility where there wasn't even a vet on duty. He had to carry Baby Girl to a different vet's office where she finally received care more than an hour after she'd been shot. She was unable to recover from her injuries and died five days later.
NYPD has not reached out to me. They've only told reporters that this is under investigation. That's not good enough. The officer who open fired in a park needs to be fired from the police force. I do not feel safe with her on the streets. In addition, NYPD needs to take immediate action to make sure this never happens again. They need to adopt a policy that says officers are not allowed to use deadly force on companion animals and they need to train their officers on how to handle dog-related incidents without putting people or pets in danger.
Police departments across the country are strengthening their policies and training to stop officers from shooting dogs and putting pet owners at risk. Colorado and Texas are even considering legislation that would require training on dog encounters for officers across the state. How many more pets need to die before NYPD starts protecting us and stops shooting our companions?

April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month, the annual awareness campaign run by the 147-year-old ASPCA. While awareness campaigns can share really important information, the campaigns are only meaningful when people act on that new-found awareness.
And that’s just what’s happening in Colorado, where Chloe, a three-year-old mixed breed was senselessly gunned down by a police officer last November. The incident was caught on a cell phone camera and has inspired state legislation that promises to educate police on how to handle dogs in hostile situations.
The Dog Protection Act, which passed in the Colorado Senate unanimously, requires officers to have three hours of online training on dog behavior and allows only nonlethal force to get control of an animal.
“This will give them the training to see whether it’s actually an aggressive dog or not,” said Gary Branson, Chloe’s bereaved pet parent.
Branson said he was out of town while his cousin was left to watch the home and Chloe. When Chloe managed to get out of the garage, police responded temporarily, restraining the dog with a catch pole. At one point Chloe gets away, and while moving away from the officer, she is shot five times.
According to research by Colorado lawmakers, police officers in the state have shot 37 dogs in the last five years. Other high profile Colorado dog shootings include a German shepard in Boulder and a border collie mix in Adams after responding police went to the wrong address.
Police officers face unpredictable and dangerous situations every day. When a few bad apples either use bad judgement or maliciously abuse their power, it makes emotions run high on both sides of a debate, often spurring irrational outbursts.
In this case, however, there seems to be a solid consensus:
- The Dog Protection Act was introduced in a bipartisan effort between David Balmer (R-Centennial) and Lucia Guzman (D-Denver).
- The legislation passed unanimously through the Senate (it still has to pass the House).
- The 17th Judicial District Attorney’s Office has charged officer Robert Price with felony aggravated cruelty to animals.
- The legislation was put together with input from law enforcement, including Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle.
“We think the more officers become comfortable with dogs, the more that they will know how to handle dogs in a nonviolent way,” said Senator Balmer. “And the ultimate goal is to reduce dog shootings.”

and to think the NRA wants everyone armed. These are supposedly highly trained officers who are trigger happy and show an indifference towards people who have a bond with their animal companions. "get a new dog" get a new job, officer (without a gun)!
