FL: Family suing for '07 shooting of 11-yr-old dog
A Florida family is suing the Broward Sheriff's office for the shooting of their nearly-deaf Dalmatian in 2007. The officer did not knock on the door of the house but went around to the back where the dog barked at her (or a duck, apparently). At that point, the officer drew her gun and shot the dog twice. The dog survived.
