A dog is dead, and its owner is alleging trigger-happy police work after a Filer officer shot the animal Saturday outside his home.

Police, however, say the dog was aggressive and had to be put down.

According to Magic Valley News, Rick Clubb said Monday that his son’s 9th birthday party was wrapping up about 5:30 p.m. when Officer Tarek Hassani came to his home on Jacklyne Circle on complaints of dogs running at-large.

He shot the 7-year-old black labrador, “Hooch,” Clubb said, though it showed no aggressive behavior.

Clubb said he suffers Parkinson’s disease, and Hooch was his trained service animal.

“He didn’t have to pull out his .45 and shoot my dog,” Clubb said. “It was right outside my son’s bedroom. What if it had ricocheted through the window?”

Was officer Hassani trigger happy or did this dog warrant being shot?

In some municipalities Animal Control Units are a division of the police department, but since when does animal control ever shoot a dog?! If an unarmed person working for animal control can capture dozens of dogs a day without having to shoot one, why couldn’t this cop?

Warning, the video below is graphic.
