WYCKOFF, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — In a noticeably different protest against police in Wyckoff, New Jersey Tuesday, demonstrators accused an officer of a senseless murder.
But as CBS2’s Lou Young reported for TV 10/55, in this case, the officer opened fire not on a person, but on a pet.
Pet owners and activists in Wyckoff were complaining about the recent death of a 5-year-old German shepherd named Otto. The dog was gunned down in his owner’s yard during a burglary investigation in the wrong house.
