Whoa, here's a messed up story out of Waterville, Vermont.
A dog belonging to an off-duty police officer was running loose. He entered the backyard of a neighbor and engaged in a fight with the neighbor's dog. The neighbor's dog was on his own property. After the police officer broke up the fight, he took his dog back home, grabbed his gun, walked back to the neighbor's yard and shot the dog once, killing him. And, it gets better, he shot this dog literally feet from a 2-yr-old child.
It will be interesting to see if any charges stem from this shooting. There is something very wrong with a person who refuses to take personal responsibility for confining his dog and expresses his anger through the use of a lethal weapon. I mean, that goes without saying, right?
