‘Trigger-happy’ cop kills disabled man’s service dog

When Officer Tarek Hassani responded to a call of dogs running wildly through a Filer, Idaho, neighborhood on Feb. 8, a pair of Labradors – one yellow, one brown – barked and bounded around him like agitated guard dogs.

The video camera on Hassani’s squad car reveals the stunning events that happened next.



While I do not agree with the officer’s shooting of the dog, the explanation for why a service dog was outside unattended does not make sense. Especially since the officer was called to the area to investigate dogs running loose. Filer, Idaho has no animal control officer.
