Police shot a pregnant mother’s dog, Drake, in her own driveway for “walking towards the police.” Drake has been friends with the mother’s 16-month old daughter since she was an infant. The officer shot him in the eye, assuming he would be killed. Drake survived, but at a great cost:
“Our dog has suffered severe trauma to his head and eye, and will now be disabled for the remainder of his life. The vet had to remove his eye, which was completely ruptured, he has brain damage and shattered bones all in his face. His nasal cavity has also been destroyed. The vet could not believe the damage that this all did, she said if it happened to a human we would be dead because the impact was so hard it destroyed all the muscles and nerves in his face.”
Angel Clark has shared some of the more graphic photos of what Drake suffered at the hands of the police here for those interested. Please avoid calling the police on people in your communities or your own family members if at all possible. The police respond to anything they deem threatening or non-compliant with deadly force. They are not your friendly neighborhood hero.
Please be safe out there and look out for your animals.
