A Labrador Retriever is dead after being shot by a state trooper responding to an unrelated call.
The officer was following through on an issue involving the dog owner's wife, who did not live at the property. When the owner of the dog opened the door, the dog slipped out and approached the officer. Unbeknownst to the officer, she was wearing an electronic collar which, if it was in good working order, would have stopped her from accessing any area outside of the invisible electric fence. Again, the officer had no idea about that.
A neighbor who did not witness the shooting claims the dog is generally friendly.
