Dog Shooting Makes NY Daily News

An Idaho police officer shot what he thought was a lunging pit bull, but the owner says it was a black Lab named Arfee. The owner, Craig Jones, was eating lunch at a nearby restaurant in Coeur d'Alene when the shooting happened and can't believe his best buddy is gone. "This cop left a hole in both that can't be fixed," Jones wrote on Facebook. "If it wasn't for my desire to face him in court and strip him of his badge, I would probably be at the bottom of the lake." Loud barking spooked a Coeur d'Alene police officer on Wednesday morning into shooting a dog sitting in the driver's seat of a parked van after a caller reported a suspicious vehicle parked in the area. The officer walked right up to the white van with his gun drawn because he believed the driver may have been watching children in the area and trying to lure them, according to a Spokane TV station, KREM-TV/Nicole Hensley, New York Daily News.
