********************* U P D A T E   09/01/14   *************************

We were told by the officer that he had shot bella in the chest. Well a Freedom of Information Act file has released the dash cam video that tells a very different story. Bella had already run past and away from the officer and was shot the first time even though she posed no threat to anyone. She simply barked while still moving away. That first shot spun her back end around. She then took off running wounded but alive towards home as fast as her legs could carry her. While running away she was once again shot by the officer as if he were on kill mission and he succeeded. You can see that she has such speed and momentum going even injured trying to get away from the officer. Once shot the second time Bella's body skid at least 8 to 10 feet along her own front lawn. She never made it to her porch. She laid there and died as this "officer" stood there and watched. The officer stood there with his hands on his hips spitting on the ground as though he was somehow proud of what he had just done. He just stood there and watched her die and bleed out. When the owner returned and tried to go to his now dead dogs side the officer told him if he even tried to touch her he would be tazed. This threat and refusal to the owner was never recorded in this officers report. The owner still has not been sited. 

 TO THIS DAY THEY REFUSE TO RETURN BELLA'S BODY BACK TO HER FAMILY...WONDER WHY? I THINK WE KNOW WHY NOW!

As another victim dog of police shooting, Bella was a 8 year old pit that was shot and killed by police after she got out of her yard, she was shot in her side as she ran for home by the East Peoria Illinois police. Once she made it to her own front porch the officer shot her a second time in the chest, killing her. Her offense was barking! (charged officially as a "threatening and annoying dog"  and by being a pit bull she was assumed threatening). The officer had no reason to shoot her when other means of control was available to subdue her. She has never bit anyone or shown aggression in anyway. Please sign the petition to have Bella returned back to her owner for proper burial of their family member. Help us spread the word as we try and stop cop on dog shootings. The East Peoria Illinois Cops told the owner they would taze him if he even went near his dog or tried to touch the dogs body. Then they took the dogs body away to an undisclosed area and is currently being held at the Tazewell Animal Control 309-925-3370.  Police have ordered Animal Control not to return Bella's body to her owners. So they are refusing to give Bella's body back to the owner. They are going to behead Bella and cremate the her body in an apparent attempt to thwart any evidence. The family wants Bella back for necropsy purposes and does not want the body to be cremated. The Owner wants a proper burial for Bella on his families land. The East Peoria Police and County Attorney will not return Bella to her rightful owner which is a clear violation of the 4th Ammendment of Illegal Search and Seizure. Please sign and share this petition and call the East Peoria Police at 309-698-4700 and tell them to give the Bella back to the owner and not to cremate the her body. The Peoria Police and Animal Control said that they will have Bella's head/brain removed for what seems to be a rabies check which there are "bite holds' in place for that. However...once again...Bella has never bitten anyone. Bella was UTD on shots and did not bite anyone. Even once cremated the Peoria Police Dept and Animal Control are refusing to return Bella's body back to her family! There are so many red flags up in this particular case as though the authorities have something to hide and to deny the family their beloved pet is unjust. Please, Please sign this petition and let's tell the East Peoria Authotries that they have no right to hender any investigation...to illegally seize the body of a family member and refuse to give Bella back to her family. Please visit Bella's page and help support the family who are devastated and distraught by the acions of the East Peoria Authoriies.
