Police arrested a burglary suspect they said assaulted a K9 officer Saturday.
When a K9 tried to apprehend Gary Wright (pic of man with multiple bite marks on face), he allegedly punched and kicked the K9 several times before he grabbed it by the ears and started to twist them.

Something similar happened a week earlier... guy getting his face eaten is charged with "mistreating a police dog" when he tried to pull the dog off.

The dog was on its own property. The Deputy pulled into the homeowners long driveway and pulled up towards the house and the deputy got out. The dog was barking and as the officer continued towards the house. The dog then starting moving at the officer and he shot the dog. The dog was 100 yards from any property border when it was shot. The dog never touched the officer. This is from the Sheriff's own version of events (and the homeowners security camera). There are no leash laws on your own property. I also question whether or not there are leash laws in Rogers County outside city limits - I highly suspect NOT.

The officer should have gotten back in his car, like the postman, UPS, FedEx, Girl Scouts or any other host of visitors surely do and none of this would have been an issue.

"Excuse me ma'am. From time to time our officers may be investigating a non-violent crime that was long ago over and for which you were not a suspect, but in the course of that investigation we may come onto your property. So we're going to need you to remove all fences, undo your locks, chain your dogs up, pick up the cat poop, and make sure to have a pot of coffee on at all times. Otherwise we will knock down your fence, bust your locks, shoot your dog, staple your cats butt shut, and take whatever we dang well please. K Thx Bai."




A woman whose dog was shot by a Rogers County sheriff’s deputy this week said she is “frustrated” by the way the lawman handled the situation.
Bruno, a 70-pound German shepherd, was shot in the left shoulder Wednesday evening and left bleeding at a residence near Owasso, said his owner, Angie Laymon.

Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton said Deputy Logan Eller was justified in his actions.
Laymon, who said her dog will survive, disagrees.

“I have a world of emotions,” she said Friday during a telephone interview. “I’m frustrated and disappointed. My husband used to be a deputy, and he says you don’t shoot first. His (the deputy’s) excuse was he panicked.

“So if you’re in a situation and it’s a human, and someone screams at you or yells at you or gets loud, are you going to panic and shoot them? If you’re panicking, get back in your car or don’t get out of the car if you’re scared of dogs. It’s very frustrating.”

Deputies were dispatched to the area of Laymon’s home after receiving a call about a window being shot out at a home about a half-mile from hers, she said.

Eller pulled into Laymon’s long driveway, got out of his car and was confronted by two barking dogs, Bruno and a 5-month-old female German shepherd, Laymon said.

“My dog will run. If someone’s there and they get out, he will run past them and run back,” Laymon said. “So my dog ran past him, and as he turned and started back, he (the deputy) shot him. Four seconds from the time he put his car in park to the time he shot my dog.”

I have seen cases in which the dog was set upon a suspect, the dog grabbed the suspects leg as it was trained, and the suspect tried to kick the dog loose as is ones reflex.  The underlying charges were dropped (it was the wrong person), but they kept pressing the "assaulting a police officer" charge.  I left that firm before the case concluded...but I thought that was manifestly unfair.  Even if my own dog started biting my leg for some reason, my reflex would be to try and kick it off.

Not to be cliche, but it almost seems like a nationwide epidemic.  How do trends like this get momentum in the first place?


The dramatic surveillance footage shows the dog wagging its tail as it approaches the officer who backs away with his handgun drawn. He then fires a single bullet at pointblank range, hitting the dog in the head.

“Beyond the scope of sanity:”  A federal appeals court has sided with police officers who fatally shot two dogs during a drug raid, even though officers testified that one of the dogs was merely barking and “just standing there.”
