The Truth Hurts

This is a more serious posting that will may shock/sicken/sadden/disgust you but hopefully open your eyes to what is happening to beloved dogs in this country.

OF DOGS AND MEN (click HERE) explores a disturbing trend in American law enforcement: the shooting of pet dogs. This is common enough to be named Puppycide and have a database (click HERE). From SWAT raids to simple calls and even visits to wrong addresses, we are seeing more and more incidents of officers using lethal force against a family pet they deem a threat. Are these rash reactions by officers in a system with little regard for our four-legged family members, or are they true peace officers doing their best in a dangerous job? OF DOGS AND MEN investigates the issue from all angles, interviewing law enforcement officers and experts, and taking a journey with pet owners through the tragedy of loss and pursuit of change in a legal system in which the very officers they challenge are an integral part.

This is a huge problem for all dog owners not just those “breaking the law.” You may just live in a neighborhood where there was a burglar, your home alarm system was accidentally triggered, or noise complaint. Don’t fool yourself into believing these are isolated incidents.

Hopefully you will take in this data (click here).
