A police officer shot dead a beloved family dog and then called the killing 'awesome', the animal's family has claimed. Sarah Brown, from Ardmore, Oklahoma, said she is devastated after her beloved pit bull Cali was gunned down by officer Brice Woolley after it hopped over their garden fence last Wednesday. Other members of the community are now joining her as she calls for justice and demands the officer to be fired. Officers with the Ardmore Police Department said they had received several complaints about the dog acting aggressively and headed to the scene, arriving before animal control...[snip]...Brown, who did not witness the incident, added to KFOR: 'He turned back to the animal control officer and said, "Did you see the way her collar flew into the air when I blew her head off? That was awesome".' Woolley informed the animal control that he had shot the dog, adding: 'We'll just write in the report that she tried to attack you and others in the neighborhood', according to witnesses.

The pup in question, post-police treatment.
Are there cases where shooting a dog is justified, yes. Based on tne gloating, I would say this is definitely not one of them.
That one was SOOO fun..! 'woof, woof!' BLAMO..!
Wish it had been a FREEPER pup, LOLZ...!!
I heard Ms. Brown on radio in Oklahoma City yesterday. There was no prior incident for the dog. The officer, was previously terminated from Tishomingo Police Department after he killed a dog with his service weapon. Tish settled a lawsuit before his termination. Cali was killed with a shotgun.
The daughter (pictured at the link) was with her dad in Arkansas at the time of the shooting for Spring Break. Can you imagine telling your daughter that Cali was not with them anymore?
It takes a sick person to react the way the officer did. He needs psych evaluation about his glee after the shooting. Fortunately there are witnesses.
I’m mad too, Eddie.
He kinda looks like a homo to me.
I think Officer Awesome’s photo speaks volumes about him. Captain Shifty’s as well.
I can’t wait for the day when the owners of these pets begin to shoot back.
Sure, there may be a couple of good cops left, but for the most part they are dangerous and out of control.
I think this trigger happy sumbitch with a badge would rather be shooting people, but will settle for Fido.
guess its time to open carry when I take my Labbies out!!! “Um officer, I think you ought to put that weapon down” as the red dot blinks on his forehead
Good thing the daughter was not there with a Nintendo or it would have been her, too! The quote might have been, “Did you see the way the Nintendo controller flew into the air when I blew her head off? That was awesome!”, said Officer Brice Woolley, known around the squad room as Judge ‘Dirty Harry’ Dredd.
Woolley should be an unarmed meter maid, rather than a ‘man’ who is supposed to uphold the law. What the heck are they teaching ‘peace officers’ these days?
And his Captain backed him up. What do you expect, departments have been looking the other way while officers abuse their wives and family for years.
Looks like he used a slug. Small consolation but I doubt that the dog suffered. The cop certainly ought to.
Saw where it said he used a shot gun. Figures, LEO’s are some of the worse shots at the handgun range.
That means, as in Connecticut, the JBTs are going to be the first ones to take it in the face...
This Cop needs to learn to shut his damn mouth.Even if he had a legitimate reason to shoot and kill that dog he should have had the tact and understanding to realize how traumatized the family that adopted that dog felt.
I hate to say this but I’d hope to see that clown suffer the same kind of situation in his life.I’d like to see if he’s laughing then.
What a macho clown.
As the police state advances over the top of constitutional rights in this country, they'll start aiming for children.
I am coming to despise cops with each passing day. They’re a long, far cry from “Protect and Serve.”
If I were libel for this man’s actions, that emotional reaction would make me remove him from a job that involves armed law enforcement.
Like Ruby Ridge and Waco?
The cops are out of control.
They have no regard for life of any kind.
Absolutely NOT! When I grew up in the 50's, 60's and 70's, there were NEVER any incidents of police EVER shooting neighborhood dogs..........And that includes dogs that escaped their yards and even bit people..........
Maybe the dogs being shot see something in these cops not obvious to the naked, human eye.
You mean the dog didn’t like gays?
I saw video of cops with a dog wandering around calmly as you please, they subdued it then shot it. It hadn’t been aggressive at all
“...What a macho clown.”
Bingo! You have the perfect description of the “valiant” Officer Brice Woolley. What a major league pussy he is!
Somebody posted here a long time ago that he thought that some cops enjoyed the thrill of legally shooting someone. He hereby amends his statement to include “legally shooting a person or an animal.”
I don’t condone what the cop did BUT anyone who thinks that pit bulls are “family” pets have some screws loose.
Aw, c’mon now, this fine public servant just saved some granny and a couple of toddlers from getting chewed to death by the four-legged mass-murderin’ hellhound.
File animal abuse charges against the dip-s#!+ officer.
Another one sided story. Playing on the emotions of dog lovers. As a father that had to go to one of these dog owners and tell them that if their dog came at my family and nipped at my wife again while they walked in public streets pushing the stroller w/ my newborn, I would personally do exactly what was done in this story. I have little empathy with dogs (and their owners) that can’t stay in their own dang yard and threaten the public safety. Human life > dangerous dog life. Keep your dogs locked up, especially those with over 300 lbs per inch bite power.
Pit bull gets “retired” because he was out attacking the neighbors and we’re supposed to get all weepy over it? I don’t see why.
Keywords: after it hopped over their garden fence last Wednesday.
IOW’s the dog was not in it’s own yard and the “protective of it’s yard” is not a true statement.
Mind your language please; there are ladies present.
I think you got something there...
Oh goodness! You are absolutely right. My apologies to any of the ladies I might have offended. It slipped out because of obvious visual similarities.
Shoot my dog (which is secured), and I’ll shoot you - and I won’t go down for it either.
Officer should be fired and banned from getting any other police job ever. What a miserable piece of excrement.
Were that my dog, I would be boasting about how the cop’s badg or what ever flew off. Awesome.
Yup. He was a friendly mutt. Notice how the dog was still wagging his tail until they shot it again.
“...arriving before animal control...”
Somebody must have lodged a complaint, what’s the backstory on that?
“He kinda looks like a homo to me.”
And what exactly does that have to do with the shooting of a dog?
