On Tuesday night, May 10, 2011, Brittany Moore called The Town of Erie Police Department to report harassing telephone calls. What she recieved instead was her beautiful four-year-old German Shepard Dog, Ava, gunned down and killed by Officer Jamie Chester. This is Chester's second time shooting and killing a dog in his capacity as a police officer for The Town of Erie. Brittany Moore has disputed the Erie Police Department's account of the incident, claiming that Ava had turned away from Chester on command and was walking towards her when Ava was gunned down. Officer Chester claims Ava was baring her teeth, hair on her neck was up and lunged at him.
JUSTICE FOR AVA MEMORIAL DOGWALK PROTEST MAY 21, SATURADAY AT 10:00 AM Meet at the Erie Community Center 450 Powers St., Erie, CO, 80516 and then walk to the Erie Police Department 645 Holbrook Street, Erie, CO, and then back. The entire walk will be approx. 2.6 miles.
We the undersigned are calling for a fair and impartial investigation into the matter of Ava, a German Shepard Dog, who was shot and killed on Tuesday night, May 10, 2011 by Officer Jamie Chester. This is Chester's second time involved in a dog shooting and killing.
Further, regarding the 2007 shooting incident, we also urge you to pass a chaining ban in your town, barring the use of this cruel, inhumane act which can give rise to aggression in a dog.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
