MERCED (CBS13) — Animal lovers are questioning a policy where Merced Police officers take injured animals out to the police shooting range to kill them.
The penal code has been on the books for decades. Some officers say it’s the most humane thing you can do, while others call it barbaric.
Officers use deadly force to save the lives of others, but what about shooting severely injured dogs or cats found on the street?
According to a California penal code, it’s an officer’s discretion, saying in part:
“…any officer… may, with the approval of his or her immediate superior, humanely destroy any abandoned animal in the field in any case where the animal is too severely injured to move or where a veterinarian is not available and it would be more humane to dispose of the animal.”
