Police Attitude Towards Dogs and Cats in America Needs to Be Reviewed — 7 Comments

  1. It’s almost epidemic now. Not just involving animals, but people as well.

    There was a time when “to preserve and protect” ruled law enforcement. There was a skill involved when dealing with potentially harmful situations without injuring or killing. That doesn’t seem to be the case today.

    After all of criticism and lawsuits that have come down, you would think that more cautious hiring practices and continual education would be in the works. Not happening that I have been able to find.
    Officers are still required to justify why they even pull their gun for any reason. But, no one really seems to question their motive.

    “Duh, that dog/cat/person gave me the evil eye so I had to shoot”.

  2. Poor German Shepard , and he was just a young dog barking to protect his family. Poor thing is in so much pain .

    Ev’ note: _Often used as working dogs, German Shepherds are courageous, keen, alert and fearless. Cheerful, obedient and eager to learn. Tranquil, confident, serious and clever. GSDs are extremely faithful, and brave. They will not think twice about giving their lives for their human pack. They have a high learning ability. German Shepherds love to be close to their families, but can be wary of strangers. This breed needs his people and should not be left isolated for long periods of time. They only bark when they feel it is necessary. Often used as police dogs, the German Shepherd has a very strong protective instinct, and is extremely loyal to its handler.they socialize very well if treated properly from early on.

    • Thanks Elisa. I know through you and my own surfing that there is a problem in the police forces with how to deal with and confront dogs. The instinct is to shoot – wrong.

    • Thanks for the link Elisa. You immediately came to mind when I read this story which was published on the UK online press.
