    Family Shocked, Outraged after Deputy Shoots Pet Dog in their Yard
    [​IMG]
    A Teton County family is outraged after they say a sheriff's deputy tried to murder their dog in their own front yard.

    The Barboza family has owned their dog Bobby for five years. A few days ago they say a Teton County Sheriff's Deputy knocked on their door demanding to see the dog.

    Leonel Barboza, Dog Owner: "He says, 'I'm here to put him down. I'm here to kill him.'"

    The officer told Leo Barboza there had been a complaint Bobby had bitten someone.

    Barboza: "I said, 'Do you have any proof or anything?' He says, 'I don't need any proof.'"

    So Leo got the dog while the deputy pulled out a rifle from his car. They walked a few feet from the Barboza's home where Leo's wife and his three year old son were inside.

    Leo and the officer tied the dog to a pole when the deputy fired three shots. The dog then collapsed. Leo's son heard the gunshots and opened the front door. Meanwhile...

    Barboza: "A bunch of kids just got off the bus and they were all on the street. All the kids were watching the officer shooting the dog. My heart was broken seeing an officer killing my dog."

    The deputy then got in his vehicle and drove away leaving the dog bleeding profusely from his head almost dead.

    Barboza: "I came back inside with my wife and hid. We were hugging each other crying about our dog because we were gonna miss him. He's been with us for five years."

    That night Leo's father-in-law, who witnessed the whole thing, had a nervous breakdown and had to be hospitalized. When the family returned home from the hospital a few days later, they were shocked to see their dog alive.

    Barboza: "My wife called me up and she's like, 'Hey, the dog's alive!' I was like, 'What are you serious?' I was happy my dog was alive."

    The Teton County Sheriff wouldn't say much about this case except that it's still under investigation. He also said there's been numerous complaints about the Barboza's dog. But when I checked court records, I could only find one complaint filed last year and that was dismissed.

    Nate Eaton, Channel 3 Eyewitness News: "Did your dog ever bite anybody?"

    Barboza: "Not to my knowledge. No."

    Eaton: "And this was the first time you'd ever heard of any complaint?"

    Barboza: "Yes, this is the first time. I still think about it. You know my kid thinks all the cops are bad because an officer came and shot his dog. Honestly when I think about it I get mad too and I don't trust that officer any more."

    The Barboza's took Bobby to the vet. He's now on medication to get the wounds taken care of. The holes in his head will be sewn up after Thanksgiving.

    The family has hired attorney Josh Garner. I spoke with him this evening and he says, "If the facts are as they appear, the deputies behavior is disgusting, troublesome, and appalling. The officer needs to be held responsible."

    Several sources say the officer is still on duty and still working in the county.

    If that were my dog and I was in that situation.... I'm pretty sure I would have done ANYTHING and EVERYTHING in my power to stop the officer from shooting anything.

    so after it was shot, they just left it there in the front yard and stayed at the hospital for a few days?

    I would atleast comfort the dog or take it to a vet.

    I would have politely told the cop to pound sand and closed the front door in his face.

    Why is that so hard for people to do?

    :werd: just take the dog inside and tell them to fuck off and come back with a warrant. That should stall them long enough to get a lawyer involved and put an end to this shit.

    The only good thing is that in this case 1) the dog lived anyway, and 2) they'll be able to hold the officer's/PD feet to the fire and maybe stop this kind of shit from happening again.

    Why is it that people can't grow the balls to tell a cop to fuck off? If the dog did infact bite someone, and they had a court order for it to be put down; it will be done by a vet. End of story.

    That is ridiculous. I would have closed the door on the officer, you are not putting my dog down with a rifle in my front yard, especially without some kind of court order. I agree, it would be done at a vet if they could prove it.

    The fuck? I was under the impression that an officer was not allowed to discharge a firearm unless absolutely necessary. I hope he's fired for this, and serves some sort of time.

    Yup Yup. I think I seriously would've laughed in his face and shut the door. If I saw him open his truck and grab a rifle, I would have called the cops, brought the dog inside and armed myself.

    So tell the officer NO, and don't come back until you have proof and some kind of warrant or papers from court ORDERING the dog to be put down.

    And even then, they're supposed to take the dog to the vet to be euthanized. So much is wrong with this story.

    Judging by the video the guy wasn't born here, probably went along with it cause back in his home country they would of shot him too for refusing.

    Totally fucked up situation. If someone came to my house and said they were there to shoot my dog, I'd ask to see a court order and shut the door.

    The officer should have had animal control take it away, i mean who shoots an animal in public????
