Existentialism at the Beach
A Wisconsin community is in an uproar after police shot and killed a 3-year-old Australian cattle dog during a raid on a suspect’s house.
Cell phone video of the shooting sparked outrage, but police say it does not tell the whole story.
“I am saddened over the loss of a domestic pet that more than likely, had no malice against anyone,” Racine Police Chief Art Howell told the Racine County Eye. “[However]... after the dog was released, the dynamics of this encounter changed.”
Fox 6 reports that the incident was sparked Nov. 1 after a neighbor asked the dog’s owner, Kurt Hanson, to clean up some feces that the dog had left on his lawn.
