Georgia Cops Shoot 11-month-old Puppy after Responding to Wrong Address

For the second time in less than a month, police shot a dog after responding to the wrong address.

This time, unlike the last time, the dog survived.

The latest shooting took place Sunday in Savannah when police from the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitian Police Department responded to a house alarm.

However, the house alarm was going off in the 100 block of E. 58 Street but police say the dispatcher gave them the wrong address, which is why they showed up to a house in the 1000 block of E. 58 Street, almost a mile away.

Police arrived at the home at 4 a.m. and forced their way through a back door which was when Rock, an 11-month-old puppy made them fear for their lives.

According to WTOC:

Savannah PD said that the officers were checking the house’s doors when the dog rushed them. One officer responded by firing at the dog, hitting it and also sending a bullet through a door and into a washing machine. The officers rushed the dog to an emergency vet, and he was later transported to a vet in Charleston by Savannah PD K9 officers.

Despite the mistake, homeowner Wanda Moore says she’s angry, and just wants her dog to be okay. 

“He’s like one of my grandchildren. He acts like my grandbaby ladybug. He’s spoiled rotten. He’s spoiled,” said Wanda Moore, one of Rock’s owners.

She says the things that scared her the most is that the bullet could have hit one of her family members.

“They shot it up and shot up the washing machine and all,” Moore said. “My husband woke me up and told me that the police shot our dog.”

Savannah police rushed the dog to a vet and have agreed to foot its medical bills.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
