Cop vs. Canine: The Hidden Epidemic That's Killing Our Pets

by Jeff Berwick

One unexpected day you find that your best friend - your dog, cat or other pet - has been shot and killed by a police officer. There is nothing you can do. The local police chief defends the behavior of his officer, calling the murder "euthanasia." This nightmare has become true for thousands of American families.

The institutionalization of summary pet "euthanasia" is now the unstated policy of police in the US. This isn't an exaggeration. If you have been following the growing police state in the US, you might have noticed a seemingly recent phenomenon taking hold - the killing of pets by cops. If you haven't been following, here is a quick run down of some recent events which might surprise you:

- Kelsey Markou was walking her family dog when a pitbull attacked. She tried to get the pitbull off of her dog, and a man walking by called the police. When the police officer arrived, Kelsey told the officer which dog was hers and which was the one who attacked. Kelsey’s mother describes what happened next: “He got 5 to 6 feet away from the dogs and just started shooting at them.” Kelsey estimated the police officer fired eight shots. The pitbull was taken to the vet. Her dog was dead at the scene.

- In a gruesome case in Arizona, prosecutors decided not to charge a Flagstaff police officer who used his baton, boot and a cable to kill an injured dog after a fellow officer accidentally hit the animal with his car. Cpl. John Tewes was called after another officer hit a loose dog with his car about 2:30 a.m. They decided the dog needed to be euthanized, but they didn't want to use a gun in the neighborhood. So Tewes repeatedly tried to bludgeon the dog to death. He failed. He then jumped on the dog’s head to cave in its skull, but that too failed. Eventually, after some 20 to 30 minutes of trying to kill the dog, Tewes used a metal cable to strangle the dog. This took several tries before the dog died.

- Police broke into a home on Staten Island without a warrant, beating up a family and stomping a pet parakeet to death. The bird was released from the cage after police knocked the cage off a dresser. “I screamed, ‘The bird!’ ” said the daughter, “and he said, ‘F--- the bird,’ and he, like, stepped on it.”

- Last year in Ohio, an animal control officer named Barry Accorti shot and killed a litter of kittens in front of nearby children. He told the children the kittens would be going to kitty heaven. Children bore witness. and they started screaming and crying because they heard the gunshots. They started screaming, ‘Mommy, he’s killing the kittens. The Police Chief made a statement: “The cats were located within the wood pile and euthanized,” Freeman said, “The cats were removed from the wood pile and taken from the residence.” Accorti’s “actions were appropriate,” according to the chief, and will not “impose any disciplinary measures for the incident.”

- In Texas recently a farmer called the police because of a robbery. The police did not show up...that is until three hours later. The farmer was on his tractor and did not know the police had shown up, but his dog did. By the time the officer walked up to the farmer, he said "I am sorry, sir, but I shot your dog. He was going to attack me." The farmer insists the dog has never attacked anyone and that the officer should have stayed in his car if he was afraid of the dog. The farmer had to ultimately drown the dog because the bullet wound did not kill the dog.

- Then there was an incident in which a police officer killed a dog and held a homeowner at gunpoint during the serving of a warrant. But the police had the wrong house.


That police killing pets is a red flag not only for our pets, but for people, too. As the police get more accustomed to killing living things, and getting away with it, killing a human will become easier.

Nazi Germany experienced a similar unraveling. Eventually it became illegal for jews to own pets. So what did the Nazi party do? They went from jewish home to jewish home, confiscated the pets, and then killed them. Shortly thereafter, the jews themselves were being placed on trains to the concentration camps.

The police often times say that the pets posed a threat to their safety, but this is cop-speak, nothing more than a ritual. They have to say that if they want to cleanly get away with murder. And so, of course, they say it, no matter if the victim is a pet or a human.

In some good news for innocent dogs, one California deputy got a little bit too excited and ended up shooting himself when he went to murder a pitbull named Precious. He said the pitbull was threatening his life, but a local television station later aired footage of an animal, much smaller than police had reported, playing with children. Animal Services did not take the dog into custody because there was no evidence it or the owner had done anything wrong.

Of course many people are speaking up, and there are multiple Facebook pages dedicated to either individual pets killed by a police officer or to the epidemic in general of cops killing pets, such as this one for Cisco, an Australian Cattle Dog, which has over 100,000 likes.


This trend is not going to slow down and, like most things, the American public is totally clueless as to what is taking place. More Americans are already being killed domestically by police than in battle in Iraq. You would think stories like these would pull at the heart-strings of the public, but instead most people would rather get upset with other individuals using 'offensive' words like "bossy" or talk about the basketball playoffs. Clearly life in the US isn't very valuable, which has implications for your safety in the US.

The pet killings will continue and eventually become a so-called "everyday thing." From there more-and-more people will be summarily euthanized, and nobody will care. Grandma got shot because she posed a danger to an officer? Oh well...Life (and death) happens.

There is no better time to get you and your furry friend to safety. Although many countries require quite a bit of data and bureaucratic tape when it comes to bringing a pet abroad, many countries make it quite simple. Mexico, for instance, is just a short drive, and you'll have no problem getting your companion down south across the border. If owning a pet without the constant worry of it getting murdered is an attractive option for you, then be sure to learn more information by clicking here.

7614 Actually, there is something we can do. If a cop shoots my dog without justification, I will treat the situation the same as if the pig had killed one of my kids. No police chief or union on the planet will save him from his ultimate ugly fate.
Is that what you want to hear, po-po?

Unfortunately, you won't achieve your goal even by sacrificing yourself for the cause. George Hitcho did exactly that - when the cop trespassed on his property, ignored the warning, and was going to shoot his dogs, Hitcho shot the cop. not only Hitcho was sentenced to death, but check out all the drama that was played out for the fallen hero officer. The police has scored very big in public loyalty because of that.

17444 Enough people will have to sacrifice for the cause then. People like Cliven Bundy and George Hitcho are heroes unlike the devil fallen hero officer who only steals a paycheck from taxpayers. Just sacrificing for myself, children and especially Jesus that's all that matters to me.

7193 You come on my property and shoot my dog, be prepared for the consequences. I would not take that lying down and carry a gun for a reason. You come to hurt or destroy me or mine Im going to try and do the same to you no matter who you are. Thats just the way it is. I am good with the Lord and if he decides that that will be the day to take me home then so be it I will die on a pile of empty brass!
