There were reports of dogs running around the Filer, Idaho neighborhood, but this boy’s dog was not guilty.

Officer Tarek Hassani came to the home of pet owner Rick Clubb after receiving reports of multiple dogs running around the neighborhood, according to Magic Valley News.

Clubb was throwing his 9-year-old son a birthday party at the time of the incident. He believes his dog wasn’t aggressive and didn’t deserve to die.

“I just think there was other ways to handle it besides shooting my dog and firing a gun right in my front yard when we were having a birthday party and there were kids around,” Clubb told KMVT.
