The officer can be seen shooting the dog in this picture and in the video
A man in Idaho with Parkinson’s disease had his service dog shot by an officer who felt the dog was too aggressive. It was as the man’s 9-year old son’s birthday party wound down.
The officer came in response to a call that the dogs were on the loose. He shot the 7-year-old black labrador, named “Hooch,” at point-blank range when the dog menaced him.
The dog’s owner Rick Clubb said the officer was much too trigger-happy.
Adding insult to injury, Mr. Clubb was given a summons which he plans to fight.
