In Birmingham, Alabama, a family is seeking answers after they said an Amazon driver shot their dog during a delivery.

According to Channel6News, it had been Sunday evening at the home of Rose Kirk when she saw an Amazon truck parked at the family’s home. Their two dogs, Solar and Lunar, had been lying in the chairs on the porch; that is until they saw the stranger walking up to the front door of their home.

Moments later, Rose heard a gunshot and heard her dog cry out in pain, and when she hurried outside, saw that Solar had been shot.

Local police arrived to investigate, and the Amazon driver said he fired his gun in self defense, however Kirk disagrees. She said the driver saw the dogs and continued to approach the front door.

if you notice dogs, why are you steadily walking towards the dog if they’re a threat to you? If i don’t know a dog, I’m not going to go near it.

And to top it all off, Rose doesn’t know why the Amazon driver stopped at her home, since she never ordered anything and wasn’t expecting any deliveries. Her dog was also leashed and chained.

As for their beloved dog, Solar will be needing surgery. The bullet entered his shoulder and exited through his chest. He will be needing surgery and the costs to repair the damage will cost thousands of dollars. Both dogs are very bonded to each other; the dogs were both rescued from the Birmingham Humane Society in 2017. Solar is still alive, but has an uphill battle to recover.

No charges have been filed against the Amazon driver, however a spokesperson from Amazon stated it is against company policy for drivers to carry weapons. That driver is no longer working for the company.

Check out the video from Fox6News from the family’s surveillance camera:

A GoFundMe has been created to help pay for their dog’s medical expenses.

  1. Walk upon my PRIVATE PROPERTY, shoot my chained dog and I will shoot you and will not get charged because I am NOW DEFENDING myself, my property and my LIVING BREATHING pet. Especially when you don’t even have a legitimate, much less LEGAL right to TRESPASS.

  2. Unbelievable. That driver had to know that they were not at the correct address. All he had to do was look at the box label and see that he was not at the correct address.

    I don’t understand why he shot Solar. If you fear something you don’t go near it. Did he shoot Solar just because he could???

    I think Amazon should pay for Solar’s vet bills. I don’t know why they have not “stepped up” since it was their former employee who shot Solar……..

    Hugs and positive energy for healing from the Peters’ Menagerie to Solar.

  3. HORRIFIC TO THINK AN AMAZON DRIVER WOULD CARRY A GUN! AMAZON (OR THE DRIVER) SHOULD PAY THE DOG’S MEDICAL EXPENSES!

    IN ANY EVENT, PLEASE PLEASE SUPPORT THIS POOR SWEET DOG’S RECOVERY!
