Utah fag, and I can confirm this.
Officer Brett Olsen entered a fenced backyard in a search for a missing child (who was later found sleeping in the basement of his own home) and was growled at by a territorial dog. He then proceeded to shoot the dog, miss, and shoot again, killing the dog. All this happened without a warrant or probable cause that the child might have been suspected to be in the back yard. (Worst of all, the child was found 30 minutes BEFORE this happened, but the officer had not been properly alerted.)

Pissed Off Man Confronts Police After They Shot His Dog
User avatar #5 - sharlibri (07/20/2014) [-]
I live in Utah. This has been all over the news lately. I think that the police officers were way out of line shooting the dog. I have dogs to protect my family that I care about and I would be furious if the police came onto my property and shot my dogs.

Someone has to be this guy, might as well start here. The fact of the matter is the law is there for a reason. Chances are you're right, the dog did not need to be shot. But in the end the government is required to take that of a human life above that of an animal life. I understand that shooting a family pet is wrong, but in a situation with a missing child calling in animal control to get the pet could take too long. Take in the small chance that the dog was aggressive and fighting the cop and the small chance that the child hadn't been safely at home. You can say as much as you want that you wouldn't shoot the dog, but is the health of a human less than that of a pet?

Considering how corrupt the world is, in my eyes, yes. Some may say pets come and go, its their way, and that they are... I guess you could be cruel and say disposable.

In the above situation, which I've seen multiple times, there were quite a few options than shooting the dog. Did they even try to contact the owner to retrieve the dog? No. They just shot it without giving second thoughts to it. I understand that on legal point of view, he could be considered "in the right", but in a moral sense, he was deep in the wrong.

This is VERY disconcerting for me for many reasons:
1) all the ways it normally is;
-police illegally entering property
-no legal action is/will be taken against police/department
-that dog was merely protecting it's family
-that dog was likely a beloved family member
2) If a cop walked onto my property and shot my dog, what would I do?
-If I witnessed a cop approaching my yard and climbing over my fence would I approach them?
-Would I threaten them and would doing so only help them make BS charges against me after shooting my dog?
-if I was there with a gun and the cop pulled out his to shoot my dog would I shoot(injure) the cop?

WAY too many possibilities, my head hurts just thinking of the possibilities, most of them ending with me in jail. This is exactly why the cops should have been fired right away and fined(for the dog AND for illegal invasion).

>"would i shoot(injure) the cop?"
i know you are thinking out of love for your dog, but you gotta put that in perspective man.
you may be saving your dog, but the headline will read "man shoots officer in search for missing girl" even if you dont have a gun "man assaults officer in search for missing girl" doesnt sound much better. not to mention if you shoot at the officer, and get lucky enough to not be shot yourself, you will most likely get prison time.

although let me be clear. im not saying i think the cop was in the right whatsoever. in fact after reading that the girl had been found 30 minutes before he shot the dog really made me rage. he has a freakin radio AND a cell phone, someone could have let him know.
TL;DR- losing your dog may suck really really bad, but going to prison for shooting at a cop is much worse.

>Police enter the back of the property under the "applied license" basis which states it is legal for an officer to go on private property unless told otherwise
>Police are then surprised by a dog charging towards them biting barking and aggressively moving
>The officers have two choices: Try and exit the premises, where there is a strong chance to be bitten on the way out, and wait an hour on animal control to get there and subdue the dog which would then be listed as vicious and put on a list and possibly be put down anyway, the whole time which the officers have to delay their search for a child. Or they can defend themselves from a present and real danger.
>i'm sure the owners loved that dog and vice versa but that doesn't mean that the dog wasn't a danger to others.
>it's a terrible situation that can hopefully be avoided but the officers unfortunately took the correct course of action
#82 to #78 - tiredofannon (07/20/2014) [-]
Yeah because an officer discharging his weapon doesn't slow down the search for the child at all.

Yes, the dog didn't know that they were cops, however if a dog attacks a couple of cops I think they're well within their rights to kill it to protect themselves. Of course it's an unfortunate thing but what else are they supposed to do? Let it tear their throat out? Then the dog would just be put down anyway. If the owner was there they should have restrained the dog, it's the owners fault if anything. I mean jeez, your dog's life is not more important than a person's, least of all a cop that's just trying to do his job and find a potentially kidnapped kid. Now I don't know the circumstances of this case, what "an aggressive manner" means I don't know, maybe in this case they were wrong to kill the dog, however you're a stupid **** if you think police officers shouldn't have the right to kill a dog if it's endangering their life or the life of someone else. Whoever wrote this is a dumb son of a bitch, your dog's life isn't equal to that of a human's.

Pretty much the same thing happened to my dog when i lived in Arkansas.... Except they weren't cops, our neighbors kids decided they wanted to climb over our fence into our backyard and the same thing happened, they shot the dog and claimed that it attacked them so they got away with it.

Next time they come climbing over the fence, shoot them and claim they attacked you on your property.

No its not, in most civilized countries government and their employees cannot do whatever they want.
First, if they were doing a search they would have had a carte blanche to enter all properties in the area to commit the search for the child.
BUT nothing else they found would be legal to use as evidence for any other crime. If they got into your house and found you sitting on a huge throne made of Marijuana bricks, they would not be able to arrest you for it. They couldn't even get a warrant to search your house based on seeing you on that throne.
When preforming a search like this, they have to be escorted by an property owner, or designated substitute. If they were in the yard and shot the dog unescorted, they were breaking the law in most states in USA and in EU.

Suppose the kid was there, and the dog was attacking the cops.
What're they supposed to do? Just wait around?

It sucks and all, but I understand why it's legal for them to do it.

Yes but tasers are designed for use on humans, it has been deemed inhumane to use tasers in the repelling or capture of animals, though I'm not sure about CEWs like cattle prods, I know those are illegal to use on humans, doubt we'd ever see those become police issue

In this situation, I would immediately feel that my life was in danger by this cop and proceed to defend myself... probably until myself or the cop was dead.

But you're telling me that if a cop does this, you can't react in self-defense? In this scenario he is pretty much breaking into your property and attacking you/your family.
