In West Virginia, a dog was almost fatally shot, when the flea ridden fiend approached a well-intentioned heroic cop. The animal’s owner, Tiffanie Hupp, stepped in front of her pet and barricaded the officer’s point blank marksmanship.
During the ensuing debate, the officer, one Seth Cook, claimed he was only following protocol. West Virginia mandates gives Officers the freedom to enforce lethal force whenever an animal approaches them.
Cook instantly seized Tiffanie Hupp and arrested her for obstruction of justice. The woman acted, according to Cook, in a hostile manner.
During her subsequent trial, Tiffanie pleaded not guilty. Her lawyer claimed that in no way was her dog acting in a threatening manner, on the contrary, he was being held by a lead, several feet away from Cook, and wagging his tail.
