Surveillance video captured the horrifying moment that a man shot a German shepherd in the head, at point blank range. As reported by KTLA 5 News, four men were walking outside of a Green Meadows neighborhood in Los Angeles, California on the night of March 9 – two German shepherds can be seen barking at the men from inside of their fenced yard just before the shooting takes place.
The shooting took place shortly after 10 p.m. – the dog, named Champ, belonged to Charles Vercher. Vercher was home at the time of the shooting – he recalled hearing his dogs barking, two “pops” and then silence.
The police are hoping for tips in this case – anyone with information can send a tip to the Animal Cruelty Task Force at ACTF@lapd.online, or make an anonymous call to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
