    CHESTER TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Pennsylvania State Police shot a family's fenced-in pet to death Tuesday.

    Troopers later admitted they weren't supposed to be in that yard in the first place.


    State troopers were in the neighborhood, trying to serve a warrant on someone. They sent a couple of extra troopers around to guard the back door. Those officers, however, cut through a neighbor's yard, and that's when they came across Sheeba, a very protective family dog, NBC 10's Tim Furlong reported.

    "She was doing her job. That's what she does, she protects us," said DiQuan Dill said.

    DiQuan and his five brothers and sisters got the bad news when they got home from school Tuesday that their Belgian shepard was killed in their back yard.

    Their mom was there when it happened.

    "I was in there laying down and, all of a sudden, I heard gunfire -- about five or six rounds," Denise Dill said.

    But what disturbed the family most was that state police killed Sheeba.

    "When I came to the door, they were actually next door, and I said, 'What's the matter? Who shot my dog?' And he was like, 'Your dog bit me.' I said, 'What are you doing in the yard?' And he said, 'We're looking for this guy over here.' I said, 'Why did you have to shoot the dog?' He said, 'She bit me.' I said, 'Why you didn't just get out of the yard?'"

    Denise's fiancée was devastated, and she said the kids were even more upset.

    "She was always happy. I don't know why they did that. She was always joyful, running around, everything," DiQuan said.

    The bitten state trooper was recovering from puncture wounds to his hand.

    A lieutenant at his barracks admitted the trooper should never have cut through the yard in the first place. He told NBC 10 the troopers never saw or heard the dog in the yard but that, either way, troopers are not supposed to cut through private property to serve out a warrant at another house.

    "He obviously panicked, you know, and messed up," Dill said.

    She got business cards from the troopers on scene, and she said one trooper apologized.

    But an apology can't bring Sheeba back to the kids who grew up with her.

    "We got dog food and everything, and we don't have anyone to give it to. We don't got nothing," Dill said.

    State police said they do apologize and will compensate the family for their loss, Furlong reported. The man they came to get was taken into custody on pretty minor charges, Furlong said

    i would sue the FUCK out of the PD. this bullshit "accidental" killings because cops cant follow procedure MUST STOP. i have to tell you, if they shot my dog, i would have shot someone. i mean, my dog is tiny and doesnt bite, but even so. trooper would have received a bullet to the face.

    If killing a police dog is considered murder, than so should shooting a dog when you are in a yard.

    A fairly large and angry dog charges you and you guys wouldn't defend yourselves? Stop raking the cops over the coals for simply acting on instinct like any man on this forum would.

    If his actions of being in their yard in the first place weren't illegal and unconstitutional in the first place, maybe. If he was in the BAD guys yard and the dog jumped the fence then charged him I would say well that sucks but oh well.

    He wasn't though, he commandeered their yard for the PD's use, and shot a dog doing it's job.

    They are not above the law.

    They cannot just go on your property to do whatever they want. That's protected by the constitution, I believe. And on top of that it's trespassing, which they are still accountable for as well.

    Yes that was for a different piece of property and having admitted that they are not supposed to allowed to utilize other private property for executing the warrant.

    Hell I bet if the cops needed to use the property and had asked the homeowner, they would have gotten a "sure, just let me bring the dog inside."

    Wrong addresses I can somewhat understand, the cops at least think they are doing their job, a warrant against you at your house, if your dog is a threat I can understand, the cops had a reason to be there. However the cops being on your property with no reason to be or permission to be, well it sounds just like the government these days not much respect for private property.

    Cliffs: They were serving a warrant that had nothing to do with the property the officer was on when he shot the dog, nor were they allowed to be there.

    yes, they were serving a warrant, but it was for a different property. They should be held liable for damages + a good sum more.

    Fuck that, the cops should go up on murder charges. It would happen if someone killed a K9, so why the fuck don't these asshole go up on it? Fucking double standards.
