Justice for Cowboy Gloger

The following is an account of events given by Carla Gloger of Dade City, Florida, describing how Deputy Kerry Kempink, of the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office, displayed gross carelessness in the discharge of his duties by unjustly shooting and killing her beloved family pet named Cowboy.

"My beloved 18-month-old Rottweiler, Cowboy was shot and killed by a Pasco County Sheriff's Deputy (Kempink) in my fenced in property on April 17th, 2015.

Deputy Kempink was responding to a false alarm at my house. Despite the numerous signs on my property warning that I have dogs, Deputy Kerry Kempink chose to jump over my fence and enter my yard where Cowboy was outside playing. Cowboy non-aggressively approached the deputy, as any dog would do when someone enters their property. The deputy drew his weapon and shot Cowboy. Cowboy was my pet, my family member and a well-trained dog. I am currently seeking the help of an attorney to fight this senseless crime. I don't want any other family to go through this pain.

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office has chosen to not discipline the Deputy responsible, nor have they taken action to prevent such tragedies from happening again. This type of inaction is unacceptable. I recognize The Pasco County Sheriff's K-9 Association, however, recent events have reflected lack of appropriate training when encountering family pets."
