Appalling story out of Shelley, Idaho where police shot and killed a 14-yr-old dog because, get this, "he looked sick" and the officers wanted to put him out of his misery.
Yes, the dog was old, but if I see a sick child or sick geriatric person, my first inclination isn't to pump 'em full of bullets.
The appropriate course of action would have been to round the dog up and rush him to a veterinarian.
Instead, an officer shot the dog.
This did not kill the dog so now the dog was actually suffering and ran off. He then had four more bullets pumped into his body before dying.
Boo on you, Shelley police, you should be ashamed.
