Update: 2nd officer suspended in slitting of dog's throat

When officer Jeffrey Bolger of the Baltimore City police came upon animal control agents who had restrained a 7-year-old shar-pei which had gotten loose, the officer took it upon himself to pull out a knife and violently slit the animal's throat, all while it was fully restrained and under control with its neck in a dog pole. The cop's actions were so vicious not even the police are defending his actions. Instead, Baltimore police Deputy Commissioner Jerry Rodriguez said, "We have no words to describe this. To say that we are appalled at this allegation is an understatement...This is outrageous and unacceptable breach of our protocol."

Bolger has been charged with felony animal cruelty and was suspended without pay. Meanwhile, his fellow officers on the scene are also being investigated for not reporting the incident to higher-ups.
