“I Unloaded on Your Dog” — Cop Says to Family After Executing Their Dog
PASADENA — A family is mourning the death of their pet after he was killed by a police officer.
“I unloaded on your dog,” said officer Price.
The department claims the officer was “investigating a burglary,” roaming around in the neighborhood.
The dog, a 4-yr-old Bay Retriever named Vern who was described as friendly by neighbors, walked outside and toward the officer.
The officer opened fire, shooting Vern twice and executing him.
Tim Reeves, the dog’s owner, was nearby when his girlfriend and indicated that she’d seen a cop lurking in the front yard.
Tim ran outside and approached the cop.
“He looked at me and said ‘I unloaded on your dog. Your dog attacked me, and I killed it.'” said Tim.
“It’s the most tragic thing that’s ever happened to me in my entire life,” Tim said. “My initial reaction was, ‘Oh, my God, there’s a gaping hole in me.’ It’s devastating. And for no reason.”
The police officer claimed that he was being “attacked” by the dog.
Police officers are trained to deceive people.
Neighbors report that Vern was gentle and has never attacked anybody.
“Everyone in the neighborhood also knew and played with Vern,” said Tim’s father.
“He wouldn’t hurt a fly, he really wouldn’t,” he continued. “The whole thing is wrong, and I don’t want it to happen to an innocent dog, or family or child.”
Unfortunately, officer Price was the only one there as he killed the dog, and he was not being filmed, so nobody has been able to show that he’s lying.

Neighbors are deeply saddened and continue to insist that the dog was a friendly, loving dog and had no history of aggression.
“It’s devastating,” Tim’s mother said.
“He was a member of our family,” she continued. “It’s no different from it being a person.”
The officer has not been named but has been given administrative duties.
On Saturday, Chief of Police Kevin Davis met with reporters and answered questions about the incident.
He said was sorry that the dog was killed, and assured citizens that the department would be conducting an investigation into the incident.
