Child Accidentally Dials 911, Cops Come and Kill Family’s Dog
SAN FRANCISCO — A family is devastated after officers came to their home in response to a 911 call and shot their dog six times, executing it.
The call itself was a complete accident, as the phone was dialed by a child.
Two officers arrived at the residence after the child had been playing with the phone.
When they arrived, they gunned down the dog even though there was no actual emergency.
“Six shots, for a dog? I mean, what can you say?” Stancil, the dog’s owner, said.
Once the officers entered the property, the dog began growling — a natural instinct for dogs when they perceive intruders they don’t like.
“She growled and I’m like ‘no, no, no.’ He starts shooting, boom, boom, boom and when he got done shooting, he shot like six times, he ended up right here,” a witness said.
The cops claim that the dog bit one of the officers.
The family states that the only reason the dog bit the cop was because the cops didn’t give them a chance to lock the dog in a safe location.
“I understand that they were doing their job,” Madonna Stancil said.
“That’s understandable, but the fact that they didn’t give us a chance to put her in safety, you know, and we did say ‘stop, we’ll get her,’ they didn’t give us the chance,” she added.
The San Francisco Police Department claims that it was necessary for the officer to shoot the dog in order to stop an “attack.”
“She was our pet. We’ve had her for over 10 years so, it’s really heartbreaking,” Madonna Stancil said.
