Man says cops ordered him to cut off his dog’s head or go to jail
#11
If that be the case. The article told the cops side. No word from the owner. All it would take is an axe blow.. Still the cops made a real stupid mistake. What if the dog had no sign of rabies...

A good lawyer and this time next year the town would be named after him.

The cop was pissed off that the guy was filming .

Either that or Flakka. V6sRZf4

Goodwin came home from work after Neesmith called him to tell him what happened. Goodwin seemed understanding, telling Neesmith he had to do what he had to do, the report said.

It wasn’t long before investigator James Hollis pulled up, got out of his patrol car and called a woman with the Crawford County Health Department, the report said.

Hollis turned his phone on speaker setting, so that Goodwin could hear instructions given by a woman identified only as “Ms. Sims.”

She “stated that either the owner of the dog needed to cut the head off of the dog or take it to a vet and have them do it in order to have the dog tested for rabies,” the report said. “After Ms. Sims stated that Mr. Goodwin had to cut the head off of the dog, he became irate and started yelling and cussing.”


Geez, what a situation!

Bullshit.

First the county Animal Control has to seize the animal.

If the dog has rabies you do not want untrained people dealing with the blood/virus.

Animal Control would have a vet come in or take the animal for the proper procedure.

There is no way either the LEOs nor the owner would have to do this, nor should the man be threatened with jail if he surrenders the animal/carcass.

notified about this petition to fire the cop responsible:

Rodger the Animal Control person in our county told me was going to retire because he was sick of having to cut off dogs heads ! If your dog bites someone and you don't have current rabbis shot then its off with their head ! He had to send them in for testing even though the had not been a case of rabbis around here in 30 years !

To my knowledge it's always been that way unless you can prove the dog is up to date. I was bitten back in the 60's and if she hadn't been UTD on her shots, off with her head. But the owner would not have been told to do it himself.

County responsibility to behead the animal and send it for testing.
