Erie County Sherrif's: Tranquilize dogs if they seem threatening.

My pet Prada was horrifically shot and killed in my home while I was away. She was used as target practice, shot at 8 times with a pistol before being wounded. Then she was followed to her room where she was then killed with a shotgun and a pistol. She was a 12ry old Black Labradore Retriever Mix and I adoped her from the SPCA when she was 4yrs old. She was not vicious and was our family pet. We all loved her so much. Why were they there? We are in court to find this out. They were looking at and for someone else who does not live in my home.

      Because this is becoming epidemic in the USA. This seems to be a new sport for cops. If they are so in fear of a dog then maybe they should rethink the job. Ever hear of pepper spray. But what happens when one of these cops enters a backyard unannounced and the homeowner shoots the trespasser? hopefully the same that is happening to these cops nada nothing zilch. http://www.facebook.com/pages/United-States-War-on-Family-Pets-Network-Info/400081023411291

      Because these are not just pets,they're our family and they deserve protection...

      This heinous action was not just simply Criminal,it was totally uncalled for and unwarranted...This type of behavior and the justification of the murder of innocents is UNACCEPTABLE...Stop the killing!

      This has to stop, pets are being shot & killed because people are ignorant and abusing their power.

      What is the problem. Why are serial killers given a badge. The whole police department should be fired and JAILED.

      How pathetic, another dog killed in its own home. You do not have that right!
