A devastated Salt Lake City man wants the police officer who shot his dog dead fired from the force.
Sean Kendall’s 2-year-old Weimaraner, Geist, was killed last week after officers entered the man’s backyard during the search for a missing nonverbal 3-year-old boy.
The 110-pound pooch approached the unidentified officer “in an aggressive manner” and “the officer, in turn, shot the dog,” police said in a statement after the shooting June 18.
The missing boy was found at his home asleep about 30 minutes later.
“The department regrets the unfortunate outcome of this incident,” the statement read.
