Michigan Cop Kills Couple’s Dog In Their Backyard [VIDEO]

A Michigan couple says a police officer stepped into their fenced in backyard over the weekend and fatally shot their 10-month-old dog while pursuing of a suspect.

According to reports, Redford police were scouring the neighborhood on Sunday morning for someone they believed had been involved in a fight. An officer allegedly spotted the perpetrator through the window of the home belonging to Bianca Alakson and Ryan Showalter, so he used the gate to get into the backyard.

That is when things took a turn for the worse. The officer alleges that while he was approaching the house, the couple’s dog charged him and made him fear for his life – so he shot him — in fact, he shot him twice. The officer says that after taking a bullet, the dog kept coming after him, so he shot him again.

However, when Showalter approached the officer to ask him about the situation, the officer said he shot the dog  “because he was in my way,” and then arrested the man for no reason. No charges against Showalter have been filed.

Redford police released a statement saying, “everyone here loves animals and that [shooting a dog] is the last thing we want to do, but we have to protect ourselves.”
