Gwinnett County Georgia Police Shot My Beloved Dog Boosie For Barking

The following post was shared with the CopBlock Network by Ashley Jett, via the CopBlock.org submissions page. Within the post she describes one of the many, unnecessary times that the police have shot non-threatening animals. Fortunately, in this particular instance the dog, Boosie, survived. However, there are almost endless examples of dogs that were not so fortunate.

Contact Name: Chief A. A. “Butch” Ayers

My boyfriend and I had a minor incident at a Quicktrip that caused the police to be called. When they arrived, my boyfriend ran because he has a suspended license. My dog jumped out of our back window after my boyfriend. I ran after my dog and the police pulled their gun on me and told me to stop or they would shoot.

I begged them to please not shoot my dog because she is my world. Then I heard three gun shots. I also told them that she doesn’t bite, she was just scared. Then I saw my dog Boosie walking towards me with two bullet wounds. I begged for help, but nobody would help me carry her to my car so I could put pressure on her wounds.

They finally called animal control to escort her to the nearest vet but took their time and made sure that they got all the information they needed while she bled in my arms.
