OWASSO, Ok - When Angela Laymon came home she found her German shepherd Bruno bleeding.
“He was leaning against the door crying and whining,” she sobbed. Laymon checked the animal and found a bullet wound.
Then she saw a yellow note from the Rogers County sheriff’s department hanging on her door.
“We were investigating a crime and your dog attacked our deputy,” the document begins. The dog was shot and we need you to call us,” it concluded.
Laymon couldn’t believe what happened but sheriff Scott Walton explained, “the dog was aggressing on him, did it bite him, no. He was certain if he stood there he had no other option than to do something to stop the attack.”
Laymon doesn’t buy it. “If you wound an animal, you should never leave it laying there bleeding out,” she told us.
Now vets have few options for Bruno. “If they can, they’ll amputate his leg,” she cried. “If they can’t, they’ll have to put him down.”
The Sheriff's Office says there is chance they will cover veterinary costs if Laymon files a claim with the county.
