Washington, Maryland - Police serving a warrant for a man who hadn't lived at the property in more than 12 years ended up killing a confined, mixed breed dog. The owner of the property (grandmother to the "suspect") asked to put her dog in the backyard or bathroom. Officers told her the bathroom was fine. She complied by restraining the dog properly in the bathroom. At some point, an officer I can only describe as an idiot opened the bathroom door. When the dog barked, the officer shot the dog, killing the 13-yr-old dog.
Nothing of interest was found at the house.
