Woman says Clarksville police officer shot, killed dog in her yard

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -Judy Allen is calling for justice after a Clarksville police officer allegedly shot and killed her dog in her own yard on Saturday afternoon.

Allen claimed her five-year-old pit bull Bonnie was on a leash and tied up in her front yard as Clarksville police officers searched for a 13-year-old runaway.

While police searched Allen’s yard, the officer encountered the dog.

“He [the officer] seen a pit and I guess he freaked out,” Allen told Nashville’s News 2, “Afterward I think he realized that she was on a chain, and that’s only how far she could come and that is where she got shot.”

Allen is not sure why the officer decided to shoot but said neighbors tried to stop him.

“He was over her with a gun and he told him not to shoot and that’s when he shot her,” Allen said.
