Hundreds of people protested in front of the Salt Lake City Police Department Saturday to demand justice for the victim in a controversial police shooting — a 110-pound dog named “Geist.”

The gray Weimaraner was loose in a fenced-in backyard June 18 when he was shot dead by a police officer who was searching for a missing boy. Police said the dog was shot after he approached the officer in an “aggressive manner.” The boy was later found sleeping in his home.

The protest included many dog owners, who brought their pets. The protesters held signs that read: “Shoo not Shoot,” “Man’s best friend should not be gunned down,” and “My pets are my family.”

“I believe this officer made a terrible judgment call.”

“After I turn around and look at my granddaughter,” she said, “the Popsicle is gone and there’s Tucker smacking his jaws.”

The “food burglar” had struck again, swallowing the Popsicle whole.

But the snatched food soon came back up, “stick and all, everything came out.”

Two days later, Tucker started vomiting again, only this time it wasn’t a Popsicle stick.

“And I look in the paper towel and here is my wedding ring,” Matykowski said. “I kid you not. My wedding ring was in Tucker’s puke.”

About five years ago, Matykowski said her ring went missing. She searched the house high and low with no luck.

“I was devastated. How do you replace something like that, not only the value of the ring but just the emotional ties, too.”<…………………continues on KHON2
