An Oklahoma police officer fatally shot a family’s dog because he couldn’t catch her when she escaped from their yard.
According to the Examiner, a neighbor called animal control on Wednesday after Cali, a pit bull dog who liked to jump over fences, escaped and was wandering the neighborhood in Ardmore, Okla.
When Ardmore Police Officer Brice Woolly arrived at the home, Cali was already at a vacant lot a few doors down the street.
Cali had done nothing to provoke the officer to fire his gun, according to a witness. But Brown claims that when Officer Woolly spotted Cali, he went back to his squad car to get his shotgun, and killed the dog. An animal control officer then reportedly shot the dead animal again.
According to InfoWars, Brown claims Woolly bragged to the animal control officer, saying, “Did you see her collar fly off when I shot her? That was awesome.”
“We’ll just write in the report that it tried to attack you and others in the neighborhood,” the animal control officer replied.
On Thursday, a Facebook page called “Justice for Cali” was created for more information.
A Change.org petition asking officials to conduct an investigation into the shooting of Cali has already been signed by nearly 4,000 people as of this writing. Five thousand signatures are needed.
The Ardmore Police Department has yet to comment on the incident.
Brown says she will file a complaint with the Carter County District Attorney’s Office.
