A few days ago we reported on this story, and now the deputy responsible for shooting the Texas farmer’s dog has been fired.
Dashcam footage released by the Rains County Sheriff’s Department shows Candy, the 2-year-old blue heeler, barking while wagging her tail when the deputy’s vehicle pulls up behind a truck.
The dog then jumps out of the truck and goes off camera when deputy Jarred Dooley fires 2 shots, striking the dog in the back of the head. But the dog was not killed and can be heard whimpering in the background. The deputy refused to put the dog out of her misery, and the dog’s owner can be seen in the dashcam video grabbing a bucket which he uses to drown his dog.
Dooley was fired after outcries from the public over this story and could even be facing criminal charges. Autopsy evidence from the vet showed that the dog was shot while in a retreating position.
Sheriff David Traylor said that the department has been receiving all kinds of threats after the incident:
“That was a decision I know means saying at this point he is guilty of a criminal offense,” said Sheriff Traylor, “but it is being investigated toward the criminal side right now.”
Sheriff Traylor said that in his 30 years in law enforcement, never has the department had to deal with so many death threats resulting from a single incident.
“Hundreds and hundreds of calls,” Sheriff Traylor said, “some of them pretty vulgar to listen too. It’s taking up the time from what we need to be doing.”
Sheriff Traylor acknowledged that Candy’s death was a “bad situation that occurred” and added that it was a “situation that we’ve never had to deal with.”
Stories like this always make me think about the statement that anti-gunners love to make: “Only cops should be allowed to have guns.”
So what’s the real reason Obama and anti-gunners want to ban guns and restrict your 2nd amendment rights? This Video by a survival expert will shock you. CLICK HERE. (Sponsored Ad)
