“You Don’t Have a Dog Anymore” Cops Take Turns Shooting Family’s Dog While Laughing

Chester, PA — Earlier this year, Christie Fry and her family rescued a 7-month old puppy with a broken leg. They named him Bear.

For several months, the family nursed Bear back to health and soon he was a normal running and jumping pup. Bear soon became a beloved member of the family. However, earlier this month, on December, 10, all that love would come to an end.

According to Fry, Bear was secured to a cable leash in his backyard when she heard him barking at the construction workers working on an abandoned house next door. Fry says that Bear was a ‘barker’, so this was nothing out of the ordinary. But when the barking was brought to a halt by the sound of gunfire, Fry panicked.

“Thank god the kids were at school,” Fry said in an interview with PuppycideDB.com

When Fry got up to see what was going on, she heard more shots. Fry recalls those frightening moments:

I hear 2 gunshots. As I’m getting up I hear the third. As soon as I’m standing, I can see out my side window. Police. Fourth shot. I look at what they’re doing & see my dog on the ground. My dog starts screaming. I scream. More shots. Five, six, seven, eight. There’s 2 cops taking turns shooting him with smiles on their faces. I run out yelling “What the hell!!!!!” They said “Is this your dog?” “Yes!!” I replied. “What happened??!!” The officer said (& I quote!!) “Well you don’t have a dog anymore. He’s done now!” & laughed in my face.

My 1yr old puppy that I did everything in my power to save was laying there dead. They shot my dog like he was a human coming at them with a gun.


In her front yard were an animal control officer and two Chester city police officers. It was unclear as to why the police were there in the first place, says Fry.

According to PuppycideDB, the animal control officer accused Bear of breaking off of his leash line and attacking him, forcing him to wrestle the dog through yard separating Fry’s property from the abandoned home next door. But Christie immediately doubted the animal control officer’s accusation:

“Bear has dug up most of my yard & the yard next door is a disaster. If this guy was on the ground wrestling with my dog as he claims, that nice fresh khaki jacket he was wearing would have been destroyed. When Bear jumped on me, even once, I’d have pawprints on my clothes. There’s just no way!”

In the associated incident report, filed by the Chester Police, there was no mention of Bear biting anyone. However, several days after the shooting, police then claimed that Bear had bitten a woman, according to Fry. But this would have been impossible as Bear was secured in the yard.

Fry has since retained an attorney and started a Go Fund Me Page to raise money for the legal fees. On the page, Fry explains:

I am in contact with a lawyer, which is why I’m starting this campaign. As I explained to them, this is not about money. This is about way more than that. Police need to stop killing our pets!!!! They need to be trained on how to deal with these situations in a better way. We are also investigating to see if there is a pattern among specific officers as there have been multiple police involved animal shootings in my area in recent years.

In 2013, the Chester Police department made national headlines when they killed not one, but three dogs. As PuppycideDB points out, the shooting occurred during lunch time, on Friday, directly in front of Chester High School, leaving students at risk for stray bullets and ricochets.

    Fucking scumbag cops

    I would have walked up to those cops and jabbed a knife in his gut, then forcefully brought it up to his chin, and laughed and said, you don’t have guts anymore and watched him bleed out like the POS scum he truly is!

    • Difdi

      I’d go for a knee to the groin, wearing hard ceramic kneepads. No harm done, someone like that has no balls to injure.

    • ForThePeopleNotTheRICH

      Armchair tough guy. The cop would have gunned you down the second you approached him with a weapon. And you would have deserved it.

      I hate cops. But what you’re talking about is just that. Talk. You’re not some Assassin’s Creed character in a video game. You don’t get a redo, or another life. Cop’s are a menace to society, but throwing away your life by confronting one just makes you a statistic.

      • Mike

        My dogs are my kids, and if you hurt them, I hurt you, cop or not. I would not care if I did get killed as long as I took the cop with me, then it would be worth it. My dogs lives are worth way more than any cop’s life!!!

      • A1701

        yeah maybe come from behind him and slit his throat

      • jonsnowthewall

        Why do people like you assume they will see it coming?

        I would have simply opened up the window here with a couple of shotgun blasts, then followed my by nine.

        If you murder a family member in my castle and with a smile on your face, don’t expect to live.

        And why did your vag get so sandy by his comment? Would you not fight for your dogs?

      Mike, I love ya Bro!! You have me laughing uncontrollably about the ‘ no guts ‘ thing!! But, any one murders my kid? We’ll see how that works out for them! Bill
