Dog Lovers Outraged After Woman Begs Police to Shoot Dog as He Tore Apart Her New Car

A Georgia woman outraged animal lovers when she posted video of a dog tearing apart her brand new car and urging police officer to shoot the dog to stop him.

“I’m like the most hated person right now because I said I wanted to shoot the dog, but I still stand by that,” 31-year old Jessica Dilallo said after video she posted of a dog nearly ripping the bumper off her car went viral.

In the Facebook Live video, Dilallo can be heard frantically pleading with a police officer to shoot the dog, despite the officer’s repeated attempts to explain that the dog was not behaving aggressively toward people and didn’t warrant being shot.

“If we just run the dog off, pepper spray it or tase it, it may turn on us and then we would be forced to kill it because it would be attacking one of us,”Dalton Police Lieutenant Matthew Locke explained to the furious car owner.

Watch the full video here:

Lieutenant Locke, acting appropriately, refused to shoot the dog that, police later confirmed, was trying to reach two kittens hiding inside the bumper.

A police spokesman said, “Lt. Locke decided not to try to pull the dog off himself because he didn’t want to be in a position where the dog attacked him and he was forced to shoot the dog.” But, after a phone call to Animal Services, who told Locke it would take up to an hour for help to arrive, another officer arrived with a catchpole they’d found at the station.

The dog, it turns out, is one-year old Red, a sweet-natured young pup that adores people – but has quite the prey drive for cats.

Red’s owner, Ben Bonds said, “I have great-grandkids and grandkids, they play with him and my little great-granddaughter hugs him and plays with him so he’s not a mean dog. He loves people.”

Bonds was ordered to keep a closer watch on his young dog to prevent future escapes. He agreed to pay for any damage done to the vehicle.

Dilallo says she’s been getting death threats since posting the video.

    No, you don’t shoot the dog. But where was the owner when all of this happened? If the dog was on a leash, the owner would likely pull it away. This suggests the owner just lets the dog run free. Not good.

    That female has serious heart and head issues. woman yet. Lady? No. A lady has a heart. This one clearly does not. I applaud the officer in not taking a life unnecessarily. Jessica Dilallo> Would you kill your kids if they got in the way? Most likely. People who put things above a life have no heart. Sad indeed to be so shallow

    Sounds to me like the only one in need of being shot was the woman who didn’t give a damn about the dog and cared more about her new car.

    Under any circumstances nessessary is it legal to kill an animal who isn’t attacking a human being. As shown in the video and I’m pretty sure that the other viewers can agree with the officer about that. When I viewed the video and the dog was clearly after something in or under the vehicle. I’m sorry but if that dog would have been able to rip the front bumper off the car it still would have been funny to me. The simple fact that this woman wanted the animal dead is clearly uncalled for. What right did she have to even want to kill it let alone tase it?? Lady if your reading this get this straight right now….I’m an animal lover and I have a small dog myself. If at any moment in time you feel that your life is being threatened please get your facts straight about vicious animals first. Making assumptions about an innocent life can land you in serious trouble with the law. To the officers that did their job…..congratulations are in order for not killing the dog. Honestly it’s pretty funny that she’s now getting threats from other people. She made herself look like a fool in the video. She obviously doesn’t have a heart and was only concerned for a car which is completely materialistic instead of the life of an animal.

    I’ve never heard of a dog just randomly tearing apart a car. The dog seemed to be after something. Dog seemed harmless except toward the car. Find owner and make him/her pay. Don’t shoot dog.

      There were apparently two kittens up under the bumper. The dog was returned to his owner and the owner is paying to repair all damages. All in all, everything turned out quite well and the police did a fantastic job!
