FILER, Idaho - A south-central Idaho police officer who shot a resident's dog will remain on the payroll but receive additional training.
Filer Mayor Rick Dunn says the city council took the results of a Nampa Police Department investigation that found the shooting justified as well as public opinion into consideration in making the decision Tuesday concerning officer Tarek Hassani.
The Times-News reports that some residents attending the city council meeting were outraged.
Hassani on Feb. 8 responded to a report of dogs running loose, and he went to the home of Rick Clubb to deliver a citation.
His dashboard-mounted camera shows two dogs that begin circling and barking at him, sometimes lunging toward him. In the video, he kicks at a 7-year-old black Labrador named Hooch before shooting it.
