My dog Goose was a rescue basset hound mix who was shot and killed by my neighbor, who is a sergeant with the Jacksonville Sheriff's office. My neighbor took down a large part of his fence over a month ago but never fixed it, and instead left us to make sure that our dogs never got out of the yard.
Unfortunately, Goose got through the hole in the fence, and our neighbor shot him, claiming that Goose was being aggressive. I can't believe it, as Goose was a goofy, lazy, kind dog. I don't know why he felt the need to shoot my dog, rather than call us or knock on our door!The situation was handled poorly and the officers that came to the call offered us no help, but instead, laughed and joked with my neighbor. We feel betrayed and feel as though this man needs to be held accountable. Help us get Justice for Goose, and make sure the Sheriff's office actually investigates the case, and doesn't just sweep the incident under the rug!
