Viral Footage Shows Cops Tasing Dog After It Escaped Backyard
March 16, 2017
ROSEVILLE, MI — Earlier this week a dog escaped its backyard.
Police responded to the call and tried for over 90 minutes to lure the dog back into its yard.
When those efforts failed, the officers felt they had no other choice but to tase the dog.
With the torrent of videos showing cops shoot dogs, the fact that these cops did not resort to lethal force was met with relief.
Still, footage of the incident has gone viral and many have reacted with outrage.
But the dog’s owners say they are thankful for what the police did, because in this case the infliction of pain on the dog was justified in order to save the dog from something even worse — being hit by a car.
What do you think?
Were the police out of line here, or did they do what was necessary?
