Owner of dog shot by police speaks out
The owner of the dog that was shot by a Newton police officer over the weekend was speaking out about the incident Monday.
Jeri Fahrenkrug was not a witness to the shooting of her dog, Griz, which occurred after Newton police responded to a complaint at 10:10 a.m. Saturday of a dog running loose in the Emerson Hough area, but she received a call from her brother telling her that the police had just shot the pit bull near her yard.
“Two of the officers were very rude to me,” Fahrenkrug said. “They told me the dog was shot because he was loose and he lunged at the officer. But the officer was 30 feet away, and a neighbor saw the dog running away from the police.”
