One unexpected day you find that your best friend – your dog, cat or other pet – has been shot and killed by a police officer. There is nothing you can do. The local police chief defends the behavior of his officer, calling the murder “euthanasia.” This nightmare has become true for thousands of American families.
The institutionalization of summary pet “euthanasia” is now the unstated policy of police in the US. This isn’t an exaggeration. If you have been following the growing police state in the US, you might have noticed a seemingly recent phenomenon taking hold – the killing of pets by cops. If you haven’t been following, here is a quick run down of some recent events which might surprise you:
Kelsey Markou was walking her family dog when a pitbull attacked. She tried to get the pitbull off of her dog, and a man walking by called the police. When the police officer arrived, Kelsey told the officer which dog was hers and which was the one who attacked. Kelsey’s mother describes what happened next: “He got 5 to 6 feet away from the dogs and just started shooting at them.”
