CRAWFORD COUNTY, Ga. (WCMH) — A man in Georgia says that deputies ordered him to cut his own dog’s head off after it became aggressive.
Crawford County Sheriff Lewis Walker told WMGT that deputies were recently called to an area residence after a dog attacked a woman, after arriving on scene the dog became aggressive with deputies.
That’s when the deputy shot the dog.
Video after the dog was shot records one of the deputies asking the owner, Joe Goodwin, to behead his dog as a means of checking for rabies.
But this is not a call we go out to try and put down anyone’s animal,” Lewis told WMGT.
