Deputy shoots dog while searching for suspect at wrong house
CARTER COUNTY, Okla.- A Carter County deputy took the life of a family pet when he was looking for a person of interest at the wrong house.
The dog’s owner says her guard dog “Diesel” was dead in her yard when she arrived home.
This is the third questionable dog shooting by law enforcement officers in the state within the last two weeks.
The Carter County Sheriff’s Department says the deputy was not injured.
The dog’s owner says it is time for Oklahoma to implement a law requiring more training for law enforcement to handle this sort of situation.
