Dog Owners vs. Cops – Up One Year, Down The Next

The year 2007 was a good one for 41-year-old Cynthia Peters and 43-year-old Mark Parr of Richmond, California. After the local police accidentally shot their pit bull in July 2005, the couple received a portion of the $225,000 settlement. 

They used some of their money to buy two new pit bulls. Early this year, their dogs attacked a utility worker. The animal control department confiscated the animals and planned to euthanize them on on July 9th. The night before, however, “someone” broke into the dog pound and took the dogs. When police went to the couple’s house the next day, they had moved out.

The same day, security cameras caught the images of Peters and Parr robbing a woman. Detectives tracked them to a hotel in Sacramento, California. As the cops closed in, the two pit bulls charged into a hallway and grabbed a hotel worker. They would not stop mauling them, at which point history repeated itself: the police opened fire on the dogs, killing both of them. (Click here to read the article.)

Will this dynamic duo of doglovers win their next case against the cops? I seriously doubt it. Not this time.
