In June, an officer shot a dog while responding to an unrelated call.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation continues investigating the shooting, which left the dog dead.
Witness and the officer's account of what occurred differ.
- The officer placed one foot over the electric fence, saw the dogs, stepped back over, withdrew his service weapon and fired upon the dogs.
- The dog was walking toward the officer.
The officer reports:
- Three dogs charged at him
- He was 20' inside the yard when he shot the dog.
This is the second time this officer has shot a dog. In the second shooting, the dog broke from his cable and cornered officers. This officer was the only one who opened fire on the dog.
