    Maine man fighting back after police allegedly shot, killed his dog in Louisiana

    Brandon Carpenter, an itinerant musician from Portland, said Wednesday that a Louisiana police officer shot and killed his dog Monday morning, even though the “incredibly friendly” dog was on a four-foot leash ... According to Carpenter, eyewitness Eric Midkiff, an employee of the newspaper, saw the officer pet the dog for a few seconds. “His tongue was out. His tail was wagging. That’s my dog,” Carpenter said. “Arzy maybe did a little sniff, like do you want to play? Then [the officer] jumped down from the back of the truck and shoots my dog in the head. I watched him convulse his last breath and twitch the life out of him.” ... According to the Southwest Daily News, Midkiff said in an official statement to police that Arzy did not attack the officer. “He also stated that he saw the dog wagging his tail and acting in a friendly manner, and that it was when the dog bumped against Thierbach that the officer immediately responded by shooting the animal,” the newspaper account stated.
