ERIE, Colo. (CBS4) – The district attorney has cleared an Erie police officer who shot and killed a family’s pet.
District Attorney Stan Garnett says the dog lunged at the officer. Its owner, Brittany Moore, says the German shepherd named Ana didn’t do anything that warranted being shot.
Officer Jamie Chester went to the home after the owner called police about an unrelated harassment complaint.
Garnett’s investigation says the dog was two feet from the officer when he killed it.
