“You Don’t Have a Dog Anymore” Cops Take Turns Shooting Family’s Dog While Laughing


Matt Agorist | The Free Thought Project


CHESTER, PA — Earlier this year, Christie Fry and her family rescued a 7-month old puppy with a broken leg. They named him Bear.

For several months, the family nursed Bear back to health and soon he was a normal running and jumping pup. Bear soon became a beloved member of the family. However, earlier this month, on December, 10, all that love would come to an end.

According to Fry, Bear was secured to a cable leash in his backyard when she heard him barking at the construction workers working on an abandoned house next door. Fry says that Bear was a ‘barker’, so this was nothing out of the ordinary. But when the barking was brought to a halt by the sound of gunfire, Fry panicked.

“Thank god the kids were at school,” Fry said in an interview with PuppycideDB.com

When Fry got up to see what was going on, she heard more shots. Fry recalls those frightening moments:

I hear 2 gunshots. As I’m getting up I hear the third. As soon as I’m standing, I can see out my side window. Police. Fourth shot. I look at what they’re doing & see my dog on the ground. My dog starts screaming. I scream. More shots. Five, six, seven, eight. There’s 2 cops taking turns shooting him with smiles on their faces. I run out yelling “What the hell!!!!!” They said “Is this your dog?” “Yes!!” I replied. “What happened??!!” The officer said (& I quote!!) “Well you don’t have a dog anymore. He’s done now!” & laughed in my face.

My 1yr old puppy that I did everything in my power to save was laying there dead. They shot my dog like he was a human coming at them with a gun.

In her front yard were an animal control officer and two Chester city police officers. It was unclear as to why the police were there in the first place, says Fry.

According to PuppycideDB, the animal control officer accused Bear of breaking off of his leash line and attacking him, forcing him to wrestle the dog through yard separating Fry’s property from the abandoned home next door. But Christie immediately doubted the animal control officer’s accusation:

“Bear has dug up most of my yard & the yard next door is a disaster. If this guy was on the ground wrestling with my dog as he claims, that nice fresh khaki jacket he was wearing would have been destroyed. When Bear jumped on me, even once, I’d have pawprints on my clothes. There’s just no way!”

In the associated incident report, filed by the Chester Police, there was no mention of Bear biting anyone. However, several days after the shooting, police then claimed that Bear had bitten a woman, according to Fry. But this would have been impossible as Bear was secured in the yard.

Fry has since retained an attorney and started a Go Fund Me Page to raise money for the legal fees. On the page, Fry explains:

I am in contact with a lawyer, which is why I’m starting this campaign. As I explained to them, this is not about money. This is about way more than that. Police need to stop killing our pets!!!! They need to be trained on how to deal with these situations in a better way. We are also investigating to see if there is a pattern among specific officers as there have been multiple police involved animal shootings in my area in recent years.

In 2013, the Chester Police department made national headlines when they killed not one, but three dogs. As PuppycideDB points out, the shooting occurred during lunch time, on Friday, directly in front of Chester High School, leaving students at risk for stray bullets and ricochets.

    That is animal abuse, A prosecutable offense.

    • ChanzaLando

      Yaaa and they perform crimes against humanity all the time and get away with it. So yes, I REALLY trust they will get what coming to them from…(cringe)….internal affairs.

      It’s not like they get away with shooting and killing unarmed men, that are also handcuffed, all the time.

      Ohhhh…no. These men will be held “responsible”. They may even be forced to take paid leave!

    • Adrian

      The police and politicians won’t arrest themselves… come’on.

      • techiewayne

        what we need is a civilian oversight police that investigates cops and crimes committed by them. NO ONE is allowed to be on the board if they have ANY RELATIONS OR RELATIVES working for the government even as dog catcher or garbage men! Cops investigating cops is the FUCKING STUPIDEST THING I HAVE EVER HEARD OF!

        Thanks for the tip

    • ChanzaLando

      Are you paid to say that, or are you a cop/copsucker trying to scare people from this site? Oh wait….don’t answer….because if you respond to this comment, then you’d just get another virus from visiting this site and that would make you stupid.

      Anyone else getting malware from this site? Anyone? Anyone? (Insert: Sounds of Wind)

      Didn’t think so.

      • Shorty Austin

        Yeah, because your stupid comments have such a profound impact on the world. Dildo.

    Sorry but this does not pass the smell test for me.
    · I read the “Go Fund Me” page where the owner, Christie Fry, is trying to raise $3000. She claims that she was “fostering him” for a broken leg that “healed on its own”. If she was fostering him, where is the contribution to her story from the rescue or shelter that placed the dog?
    · Why is she trying to raise this money? If it is for a lawyer, she has not provided the name or contact info even though there was a post on the Go Fund Me page asking for it.
    · Additionally, the name of the fundraiser on the “Go Fund Me” page is listed as “Chris
    Christie” not Christie Fry.
    It sounds to me like somebody may be trying to cash in on the current anti-police climate and I think that is disgusting on many levels and harmful to both police and to animals who are victims of cruelty when stories are published without being fully vetted.

    • Ryan James Fitzpatrick

      any harm to the police is good, they are corrupt from the top down.

    • Shaun Figo

      who gives a shit dont donate but fuck the police, they did shoot the dog and these scums deserve to be dragged through court and pray they lose their jobs and end up losing their wife kids everything life. they are maggots and they keep killing poor innocent animals that are no threat just for target practice, usa need to practice your right to bare arms and start shooting thses corrupt scums like tupac dropping cops

  • Mike

    If that was my dog, I would have pulled out my gun and shot those two fucking coward cops. These cops are pussies and should be gutted and fed to the coyotes, or just tie them down and let the coyotes rip their throats and stomachs out, while there still alive and I would just be laughing watching the whole thing!

  • Ryan James Fitzpatrick

    cops are fucking disgusting creatures. these men should be shot.

  • jhr459

    Unfortunately, you cannot ‘train’ humanity into someone that has none. I believe most cops are decent, but there seems to be a plethora of bad ones of late.

  • Bernie4pres

    How was it that several hours later the police chief didn’t know an officer(s) had discharged multiple weapons multiple times?

  • Terry Butts

    The cops will not get charged. They will be given a paid vacation until the murder is forgotten. The law enforcement “brotherhood” understand they ARE ABOVE THE LAW.

    I hate that this happened, but, I also hate to see dogs tied up. Having dogs tied up just isn’t good for them at all. If you don’t have a fenced in yard or don’t keep them inside, I would suggest that you not even have a dog.

  • Whataboutbob?

    Don’t believe everything you read on this website. It’s nothing but a smear campaign for police officers. I’ve read news stories from legitimate news sources and the real story is VERY different from the crap they wrote here. Animal abuse is rampant in the City of Chester. Drive to the Northwest area of the city they call ‘Highland Gardens’ and you will find dozens of pit bulls on 3 ft chains attached to trees all day and night with no food or water. They use the dogs for fighting so it’s not uncommon to see a different dog in their yard every few weeks or so. They are skin and bones and covered with bugs and suffering from things like mange. A few years ago a neighborhood scumbag put 4 dead dogs in a large plastic container and left it on the sidewalk. The residents of the area are the true scumbags, They have absolutely no regard for the life of animals which is why this story is so ironic because the cops seem to be the only ones helping them out and leaving them food and water. Animal control won’t even come to the area alone anymore because they were getting shot at for trying to take these dogs to the shelter that were sitting outside in 100 degree weather all day, everyday without even so much as a bowl of water. People should do their own research and not be swayed by scumbags like the ones who write stories like this that they know aren’t true.

      Shut the hell up you COPSUCKER! Go back to sucking that thin blue line!

  • Lisa Taylor-Austin

    I sincerely hope the owner of this dog sues for destruction of property (yes pets are property), PTSD, endangering the lives of family close by and any other charge that her attorney can consider. I also think this “officer” should be arrested for felony animal abuse and fired for dangerous discharge of his weapon. This is egregious.

  • Marko G.

    Nothing will surprise me from americans. Their arrogance is beyond everything. This country turned out in the real shithole on the Earth. Sick people.

  • 1blueadept2

    what are the officers names?

  • Just another psycho killing a family pet for fun. They didn’t want any rioting so they took their aggression out on a dog instead of a human. Scumbags in uniform…nothing new. I wish nothing but the worst for that cop.

  • James Bennett

    I can’t even read the article for the
    goddamn adds. Wtf. Pop up pop up. Try to close pop up go to pop up 5 times just to write this I was redirected to advertisers sites.

  • Allison Moss-Fritch

    These “police” are both poorly trained and dumb…not well educated and not smart in the first place.

  • Craig Miller

    Sometimes cops need to look in the mirror to figure out what powers the BLM movement. When you act like an occupying army you are treated like one. It will only get worse for them the longer this crap goes on.

  • techiewayne

    Kill my dog and you won’t survive the call do they not realize that the SCOTUS has ruled we can use equal and deadly force if necessary to protect our property, homes, papers and effects against any and all INCLUDING POLICE, so if they come on my property and kill my family member then I have a right to KILL THEM! Just like the guy who killed a cop for trying to shoot his dog in order to gain entry to his property without a warrant and his sheriff telling him to kill the dog, so the property owner shot and killed the cop. AGAIN WE NEED TO HOLD ONTO AND ENFORCE OUR RIGHTS AS AMERICANS!
