Police Enter Couple’s Private Property Without Permission and Gun Down Their Dog

HOLLY HILL — Police trespassed onto a couple’s private property and opened fire on their pet dog, according to reports.

Richard Stotler was in his home with his girlfriend minding his own business when officers began knocking on his front door.

The officers claimed to be looking for a “prostitute.”

Stotler told them that he had no idea who they were talking about.

But the officers wanted to snoop around in his backyard anyway.

Stotler told them he didn’t see any reason for them to do that.

He ended the discussion with the officers, closed his door and went back to watching TV, expecting the officers to respect his wishes and leave his property.

That’s when he was startled to hear gunshots firing in his backyard.

When Stotler ran outside to see what was going on, they suddenly arrested him.

“They started yelling at me to get on the ground, handcuffed me and put me in the back of a car,” says Stotler.

The officers had opened fire on his 4-yr-old pet dog, Lady.

The police claim that they had to shoot Lady because she “lunged” at them.

Stotler’s girlfriend found Lady lying on the floor in a pool of blood and began tending to her wounds.

Eventually the officers took the handcuffs off of Stotler and commanded him to take the dog to a clinic for treatment.

Fortunately, Lady survived.

According to Stotler, she is deeply traumatized, fearful, and won’t go outside anymore.

She has three wounds from bullets and a bullet fragment is still lodged inside of her neck.

Stotler is very outspoken about the incident.

He has started a Facebook page, Justice for Lady, which now has over 10,000 followers.

In a recent update about Lady’s recovery he says, “She’s had her breakfast and morning meds. She’s feeling better each day. Thank you all for your support and sharing her page to help make changes and raise awareness of senseless acts like this that happen all to often.”

With a dog being shot every 98 minutes by law enforcement, Lady joins a long list of wounded or dead pets. To name but a few examples:

Officer Fike drives his knee into a dog’s back, throws the dog down a flight of stairs, and shoots the dog to death.

Cops cheer “nice!” as they gun down Rosie while she hides in a bush.

Officer Fike crushes the back of Parrot, whom he shoots and kills moments later.

Officer Fike crushes the dog’s back, shoots and kills her moments later. Witnesses state that the dog was friendly but afraid of the officer.

Officer Squicquero traps a dog in a small room and starves the dog to death.

Officer Jones hangs Ricoh and kicks her as she swings on the noose.

SWAT officers tell a woman “We don’t give a fuck about your dog!” as she tries to protect her dog from being shot.

Cops execute an 8-month-old pregnant Chihuahua while their state-controlled media mouthpieces claim they were “forced to do it.”

Do a search for “police shoot dog” and you’ll find millions of other cases.

Every day, police are killing the most defenseless members of our families.
