Cops Kill Family Dog In Front Of Children, Force Owner To Cut Its Head Off Or Go To Jail

Imagine the trauma the family was put through.

Two Georgia police officers ordered a dog owner to cut his pet’s head off after it was shot. In the country, cutting off the head of a dog is a standard procedure when testing the canine for rabies at health departments. Cops may have violated proper procedures yet power won over justice as the owner beheaded his pet in the end.

The horrifying incident was recorded by the dog owner, Joe Nathan Goodwin. The video was later submitted to the Free Thought Project and started to circulate online this weekend.

Big Boy is Joe Nathan Goodwin’s dog that was shot by a Gerogia cop last weekend.

According to the owner, one of the police was in Goodwin’s property when the dog allegedly attacked the officer. The cop then reportedly had no choice but to shoot it.

As Goodwin got into a discussion with the police, he can be seen in the video refusing to cut off the dog’s head. Not to mention, his kids were then watching from afar so he did not want to do what he’s told.

This man though, who claims to be an investigator, forced Goodwin to decapitate his dog.

Another officer, Hollis, who can be seen in the video wearing a purple shirt, showed up at the scene. He asked Goodwin to bring out the dog’s shot records but the latter couldn’t produce them immediately. This was when the police officers and Goodwin started to debate until force was used to make the owner comply with their demand.

Since Goodwin refused to do as he was ordered, he was assaulted by the cops.

Goodwin’s right to refuse any unlawful order was clearly violated. Hollis then started to threaten Goodwin saying:

“I tell you what…I will take you to jail and charge you.”

This was when Goodwin asked what the cops will charge him with as it is clear to him that he is not violating any law. The cop then answers hastily saying:

“When I get there, I’ll give you the charges. We asking you to cut…remove the dog’s head.”

Goodwin lost the argument as cops threatened to put him in jail if he did not behead his dog.

Goodwin still refuses to cut his dog’s head and insists he is not going against any law in doing so. Apparently, this provoked Hollis to throw Goodwin into his truck while saying:

“I’mma tell you something right now. I’m investigator Hollis. You’re not gonna talk to me nor my deputy like that.”

The deputy didn’t stop the assault but rather added to show their ignorance of the law and proper procedures:

“We don’t know this process either. If it was my dog, I couldn’t cut the head off either. I will shoot any dog that comes my way…your dog come at me twice.”

The incident left the family traumatized and as the news about the assault broke, Crawford County Sheriff’s Office promised to investigate Hollis’ actions.

In the end, the officers were able to push Goodwin to do the heartless act. According to Georgia law, though, this is an unacceptable incident.

It is noted in the country’s law that the submission of brain tissue for rabies testing should be coordinated with the environmental health section of the health departments or animal control agencies. Also, only professionals with proper protective gear should extract the specimen. What happened to Goodwin was clearly against all of these procedures and he might have been placed at the risk of acquiring a rabies-based disease.

Below is the video of the incident recorded by Goodwin. Warning: the video is too graphic for young children to watch.

New Study Warns Against Extinction of Orangutans

The population of Bornean orangutans halved in just 16 years.

Orangutans are one of man's closest relatives in the animal kingdom. They are the only great ape species in Asia, and they share 97% of human DNA. They have the ability to reason and to think, as well as to develop their own cultures. But a recently published study warns against the orangutan's extinction - and it could all be due to human activity.

The new study, titled "Global Demand for Natural Resources Eliminated More Than 100,000 Bornean Orangutans" and published in Current Biology, found that human activities like logging, mining, hunting, and deforestation, among others, have slashed the population of Bornean orangutans into half in just 16 years. That's from 1999 to 2015.

‘World’s Loneliest Bird’ Found Dead Next to Concrete Bird He Wooed for Years

RIP, Nigel the gannet.

For years, the 'world's loneliest bird' persevered to woo his rather stone-cold love interest. Nigel, a gannet, showed up on Mana Island in New Zealand in 2015, where he met the apple of his eye. The only problem was that his potential mate was made of concrete.

Some 20 years ago, conservationists in New Zealand planted 80 fake gannet birds on the island as part of their efforts to attract real gannets. Nigel was the only one to show up after many years, and he was the first gannet to make Mana his home in 40 years.
