Why Would An Unidentified Police Officer Shoot 2 Emotional-Support Dogs?

A dog was shot by a cop, as he was just wagging his tail, according the Minneapolis Star Tribune about her Staffordshire Terrier, Ciroc, by the owner of the dog.

Jennifer LeMay, said that her emotional support dogs Rocko and Ciroc were shot and severely injured. It is known that cops have to save people and animals, but this time the cops end the dogs’ lives.

LeMay said that her dogs were doing their job, and she added that they have the right to be safe in their garden.

LeMay was camping with some of her relatives in Wisconsin, and left her 2 dogs in a friend’s care. Her small daughter came home and the alarm, that the Minneapolis PD was also alerted by. So, Lemay called the security company to deactivate the alarm, while the police arrived about 20 mins after that. The Surveillance cameras from LeMay’s house show that the cop walking in the garden with a pistol, and when he saw Ciroc heading toward him wagging the tail, he directly shot him in the jaw. And then when Rocko appears, he is also shot in the shoulder, face and side.

Fortunately, they both survived. 

A Minneapolis PD spokesman, Corey Schmidt, refused to identify the officer. He told the Minneapolis Star Tribune: "We are aware of the recent incident involving MPD officers responding to an audible residential burglary alarm and while at this call an MPD officer discharged their firearm, striking two dogs belonging to the homeowner.”

"Anytime an officer discharges their firearm in the line of duty there is an investigation. We are in the process of reviewing the video posted online, as well as the officer’s body camera video.”
This still doesn’t answer LeMay’s question: Why? Later on Sunday, an officer from the Minneapolis PD stopped by LeMay’s home to apologize. She said about his visit. He was: "as genuine and compassionate as he could be, without overstepping his boundaries.”

It is rough to accept something like this happens with your innocent pet.
