A pair of dog owners has filed a lawsuit against a Michigan Department of Corrections investigator after he allegedly shot the pair's 15-year-old dog while looking for a fugitive in the wrong house.
The investigator was one of a team of officers who raided the Flint home of Erica Morena and Katti Putnam earlier this year, reports the Detroit Free Press. The officers were looking for a fugitive -- who was actually in the house next door.
The investigator was in the home's backyard when Morena and Putnam's 15-year-old mixed breed dog Chloe came down the stairs and out the backdoor to do some investigating of her own. According to a neighbor who witnessed the shooting, the investigator then shot Chloe in the face.
