Punish Cops Who Allegedly Laughed While Shooting Puppy

Target: Chester Police Department

Goal: Launch investigation into officers who allegedly took turns shooting a puppy eight times while laughing about it.

Two police officers have been accused of shooting a one-year-old puppy several times while smiling, then laughing after telling the owner that she didn’t have a dog anymore. According to reports, Chester, Pennsylvania resident Christie Fry, she awoke in her home to the sound of gunshots and was horrified to see the officers firing their guns in her backyard as her dog Bear screamed.

Apparently the dog was secured properly in the yard, and that instead of knocking on her door to talk to her about supposed complaints about her pet, the police went straight onto her property, through her gate, and killed Bear. The animal control officer with them claims that Bear broke his restraints and knocked him over, but did not say that the dog bit him or attempted to hurt him. For this, the officers felt it necessary to pump eight bullets into the puppy. They then allegedly said to Fry: “Well you don’t have a dog anymore. He’s done now!”

Even if the officers didn’t smile and laugh and act as utterly unprofessional and callous as Fry claims, a one-year-old puppy knocking a man over should not elicit such an extreme response. The only thing Bear ever did wrong was bark at the construction crew next door. No puppy deserves to die for that. Sign to demand that the Chester Police Department investigate the officers involved in the death of Bear.


Dear Chester Police Department Chief,

Two of your officers have been accused of shooting a one-year-old puppy owned by a Chester resident eight times for supposedly knocking down the animal control officer they were with. Apparently, the three men did not knock on her door to wake her when they came to look into supposed complaints about her dog’s barking. Instead, according to reports, they went straight into her backyard where she had tied up her puppy and shot him to death.

Reportedly, Fry was awoken to gunshots and the sound of her dog screaming. When she looked out the window, she saw the officers smiling as they took turns firing. Allegedly, one of the cops laughed after tell her that she no longer had a dog.

This is an extremely inappropriate way for police officers to behave. Even if it’s not true that they smiled and laughed about killing a puppy, there is no reason to shoot an animal to death just because it jumped on a person and knocked him over. The animal control officer didn’t even say that the dog tried to bite him. Bear was probably just excited, as puppies naturally are when they see new people.

Dogs are not target practice for police officers. They’re intelligent, loving animals that make their owners lives better and don’t deserve to be slaughtered for no reason. We demand that you launch an investigation into this incident and punish the officers involved if they’re found guilty of unnecessary brutality.

  1. This sickens me!!! Where are these police depths getting these idiots they are hiring? Just b\c you carry a gun & wear a uniform doesn’t mean you can do anything you want!! I probably would have died right along with my dog as I would have attacked those evil SICKOS!!!

    How did this puppy knock down an animal control officer, when it was tied up?


    • Exactly Elena!!! The owner should have shoot them and than say, ohhh sorry i though you were robbers. Also she should say they try to rape her and involve the dog in her defense. This monsters deserve. I am more and more convinced that police officers in USA have no training at all and they pick them in hospice houses, because just in a space of minutes i signed several petitions all about police officers who shot dogs, even a poor cat, for no reason at all and many proved by forensic medicine that what they said was a lie. I mean police officers lying??? What is going on on USA??? Use to be a civilized, democratic country but it seems is not anymore. Kill the bastards.

  4. what is wrong with the mentality of some of the police officers in the US? Are they selected for their mental deficiencies and inadequacies? Who selects and employs these morons? The rest of the civilised world watch in disbelief!

    • Linda you just say what I had been saying in several petitions all about the same. police (don’t deserve any capital) officers who had been murdering pets, even a cat. Are they so brave to go after real criminals or is just pets and most probably women?? I also sign for some cruelty against women and using them for sex. What is going on??? It seems the police officers in USA are recruited in hospice homes.
