Weimaraner dog shot dead in owner’s back yard by police
Daily Mail ^ | , 25 June 2014 | JILL REILLY

( Weimaraner dog shot dead in owner’s back yard by police who were searching for missing three-year-old boy ) A family pet dog was shot dead in his owner’s back yard by a policeman searching for a missing three-year-old boy. Sean Kendall, 27, met with Salt Lake City police officials this week to discuss the fatal shooting of his two-year-old Weimaraner, Geist. Police were searching for a three-year-old boy named Kelby who had been reported missing - he was eventually found asleep in his own basement.

Police said the officer who was searching in Kendall's yard felt the dog was aggressive and going to attack him, and that's why he shot the animal.

Now Kendal is calling for the officer to be fired from the force, saying he is 'extremely frustrated and upset' at the apparent reluctance of the police to take action against the officer who shot his dog. 'The only thing that I would be satisfied with is having this officer terminated,' said Kendall, reported The Salt Lake Tribune. 'I feel that his judgment was completely inappropriate.'

When are cops going to realize how vulnerable they are out in public?They are building for themselves a reservoir of hate and resentment.

No, you do not get to trespass on private property without the consent of the owner.

Exactly!

What do you think would be the result if Mr Kendal had been looking for his son in the officer's yard and shot the officer's dog?

Good thing the police did not start searching in the house of the missing child. They may have shot their dog as well.

I say fire the loser. Maybe the “extenuating circumstances” keep the dog-killing from rising to the level of criminality; but at the very least, the cop displayed such gross incompetence on the job that he should not be trusted with a gun and should be told to hit the road.

Why not just knock on the dog owner’s door and ask permission to search for the missing child? The dog and cop would have been introduced and there would have been no confrontation. Trades people, who are total strangers, repeatedly come to my house, get introduced tony 85 lb. Pitador and 110 lb. Great Dane, receive very friendly greetings, and go about their business. The same would happen with a poise officer. There’s just no need for shootings like these in cases where the dogs’ owners aren’t suspected of any crimes.

Yeah, the dog probably barked happily and wagged his tail. That, in the mind of a dog-hating cop, is "aggression."

Of course there's no "need." It's a "want" thing.

I had a beagle when I was a teenager. If anybody came running into the back yard and startled Buddy, he’d go running toward the person, barking like mad. My two present cogs, a Pitador and Great Dane, do the same thing when anybody drives into the driveway. That’s just the way dogs are.

Many years ago my late father was a real estate broker who specialized in rural real estate. Whenever he drove up to a home he’d always make plenty of noise to make sure he attracted the dogs and didn’t startle any of them. Never got bitten by any dogs.

Lots of these cops don’t seem to have any idea how to deal with normal, inquisitive , barking, friendly dogs.

Worst of all, the vast majority of property owners would consent to that type of searching an instant, meaning there’s no reason for the police not to ask for it, just to prevent this kind of tragedy.

I spent years reading Water Meters. I never got out of the truck with out a pocket full of Dog Treats. Had a bag in the truck as backups. Never got bit or chased. Show no fear, offer the treat and you’re in, read meter, pass out another treat and move on.

98% of cops ARE STUPID THESE DAYS! AND CHICKEN
$HIT$!!!

And yes it is time to start taking and eye for an eye. Maybe even double up to get caught up number wise.

The dog was probably PROTECTING HIS KEEPER'S PROPERTY AS ALL DOGS DO.

This cop should be terminated and arrested for excessive force and infliction of trauma upon the dog owner's and his family.

If I was the parent I would have searched my own basement before calling the cops. That’s still no excuse for the cops killing someone else’s dog.

When I was growing up, we had a good watchdog who would bark up a storm if a stranger whom she didn’t recognize approached the house and no doubt would have attacked him had he entered the yard. So she would have fit the cop’s description as “aggressive.” However, in those days, cops didn’t barge into people’s back yards as they do today.

Anybody who knows dos knows you don’t go into a strange dog’s yard without the owner’s permission and being introduced to the dog. After all, law abiding people keep dogs for warning and protection because of dogs’ basic territorial nature. Cops also just don’t have any legal right to barge into peoples’ yards, especially when they could ask permission and get it.

Carrying Mail for 24 years, I’ve been bitten more times than I care to count, and have built up immunities to dog venom. Every dog paid a price, and I’ve killed a red chow attached to my calf...I don’t tolerate an ill behaved animal. Customer said they was gonna “sue yo cracka ass”, and I let them know that my counter suit would give me a rental home, and they would be homeless.

That said, dogs are smart. They instinctively know that animals on two feet can kick their ass, thus, they bow-up. 99.9 percent start raising hell when you approach, and quit after you leave their territory. They’ve done their job, and “chased” you away.

Ma, you’re 100% spot on...”show no fear”, and I would add, show that you are dominate...the aggressor. The Post Office says “ don’t make eye contact, and back away slowly.”, and I say BS...bow-up and make the dog back down, BUT DON’T FRIGGIN SHOOT ‘EM!

Cops are wimps. Weimaraners are as gentle as, and a little dumber than Labradors.

I got bit when 5 ur 6 in My sandbox by the Shepard next door. He was eating and I looked over at him, he ran at my face, I put my arm up and he bit it 1 time and ran back to his food.

Ever since then any dog that bites Me gets pried off, mouth shut and bitten on the nose by Me while staring them in the eyes, I’ve drawn blood several times- I assure you it SCARES THE HELL outta them when they get bit back!

When I was in a SAR team, every search team did the house first. And then another team would rotate thru the house just to be sure. Kids have been known to wander back home and after seeing all the police and fire department stuff will think they are in trouble and hide in the house. a hourly search was done for this reason.

I’m beginning to think that maybe cops should be disarmed. If they need a gun, they should have to find a local gunowner willing to help them.

And to think we are giving these maniacs high tech military surplus equipment.
