Dog Deliberately Run Over By Police Officers Deserves Justice

Dog-by-Tobias1984

Target: U.K. Secretary of State for Justice, Michael Gove

Goal: Prosecute police officers who allegedly ran a dog over deliberately.

Two police officers in North Wales allegedly ran over and killed a dog deliberately. The dog was running loose on a road, most certainly distressed and disoriented. The officers said in a statement there was “no alternative” to running the dog over with their patrol car. However, considering the incident occurred at 3 a.m., it seems unlikely that traffic would have been too important to secure the area and close the road to traffic while the dog was caught.

There are a number of safe and humane alternatives to catching a loose dog and the officers deliberately running the animal over was a callous act of cruelty. PETA has rightly stated that, “Law-enforcement officers are entrusted with protecting the innocent and the vulnerable, and that does not include deliberately running them over with the intent to kill.” The organization and others have also said that this incident proves that officers desperately need to be trained in humane animal control.

Sign this petition demanding that these officers are severely punished for this cruel act and urging the country to ensure its law-enforcement authorities are adequately trained in humane animal control in order to avoid similar incidents in the future.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Gove,

Two police officers recently ran over a dog deliberately in North Wales. The dog was running loose on a road and despite the number of safe and humane alternatives, the officers decided to run the animal over with their police car. As the incident occurred at 3 a.m., it seems it would have been easy to temporarily secure the area in order to humanely capture the dog.

This horrific incident proves that British police is insufficiently trained in humane animal control. We demand the officers responsible for the dog’s cruel death are prosecuted and that all officers in the country receive mandatory training on adequate and humane methods for catching loose animals.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    “No alternative”? There’s always an alternative to destroying life. The dog looks elderly and was frightened. Humans endanger others constantly, so is the solution to run them over before they cause problems?

  2. Just shows you that we two are heartless bas..ds oh and btw absolutely shite at their job.

    The bastards who ran the dog over deliberately deserve a horrible disease , and hope they die in agony, why, because they are not human beings. They are monsters and probably shoot and kill kids as well

    POLICE OFFICERS DELIBERATELY ABUSED
    A STRAY DOG, THEN RAN HIM OVER AND
    MURDERED HIM/HER. IN NORTH WALES AT
    3:00 AM. THEY DELIBERATELY KILLED THIS DOG. IF THEY ARE NOT PROSECUTED
    WITH A FELONY-A CHARGE AND PUT IN
    PRISON FOR MURDER. THEN THERE IS SOMETHING VERY WRONG WITH THE LAW IN NORTH WALES,THE UK.
    THESE ARE TWO OFFICERS OF THE LAW. THEY WERE CAUGHT THIS TIME. WHO
    KNOWS HOW MANY DOGS,CATS OTHER
    ANIMALS OR ANY ONE THAT SAW WHAT
    THEY DID. JUST DISAPPEARED AND HAD
    NO FAMILY, SO NO ONE MISSED HIM.
    THESE UNLAWFUL OFFICERS SHOULD BE
    IN PRISON. NO MONETARY FINES, JAIL
    TIME FOR A LONG TIME.

  5. Joan Saunders says:

    THESE OFFICERS AS WELL AS EVERY
    VIOLENT ANIMAL ABUSER, THEY ALL
    DESERVE TO SEVERELY SUFFER THE SAME
    EXCRUCIATING PAIN THAT EVERY SINGLE
    DOG, CAT, HORSE, ELEPHANT, COW, MONKEY. SO MANY THAT I CAN’T EVEN NAME EVERY ANIMAL ALL OVER THE WORLD
    THAT HAS SUFFERED AT THE HANDS OF COLD HEARTLESS BASTARDS. THEY ARE ALL INSIGNIFICANT PIECES OF GARBABE.

    There are trained dog handlers in the police force who could have been called upon to assist in catching the dog asap. Sadly, our police officers are beginning to behave as badly as the ones in the USA who seem to view pet animals as suitable targets for a little impromptu weapons practice.
