The officer did overreact! I personally know this dog Johnny Cash and he was not an aggressive dog. He never was! He barked, like all dogs do, when unfamiliar people came on his property and that was it! Why didn't the officer wait for the tranquilizer or use mace? Why did he unload his gun into the dog's SIDE if Cash was "charging him"? Wouldn't the bullets be in the foremost part of the lab's body like his chest? But they weren't! The bullets were in his side! Couldn't it be possible that the neighbor,(not really neighbor but a housesitting guest), over exaggerated the activities of Cash and"tainted the well" in regards to what kind of behavior Cash had before Officer Downs even approached Cash for first time? Cash was a gentle, loving, sweet dog who deserved the same kind of justice that any law enforcement is sworn to give. The force that was used on Johnny Cash the labrador, owned by Chad Lentz and Sheyenne Knox, WAS excessive and NOT necessary!!!

Also, this article contains MANY fictitious statements made in this article especially pertaining to the "quotes" from the dogs owner! A rebuttal needs to be written with the truth!
