Police dog shot and killed in Georgia

fp-police-dogs_295866cThe Atlanta Humane Society added $5,000 to the reward  for information leading to the arrest of the person who shot and killed a Griffin Police Department German Shepherd.

The dog’s handler, Griffin police Cpl. Chad Moxon, and his family had already put up $1,000 , according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Moxon discoverd Jimi, the police dog, and his own dog, Yeager, missing from their kennel at his home in Lamar County last week.

Moxon said he searched all Monday night and most of Tuesday night for the dogs, handing out about 300 flyers. On Wednesday morning he received a call about a German shepherd found dead in a ditch. It turned out to be Jimi. The 3-year-old dog was shot in the side with a shotgun and dumped there. 

“I just sat down in the ditch for the next 30 minutes. I didn’t have the energy to get him out,” Moxon said.

Shortly after he got home a neighbor called with the news that Yeager had been found, badly beaten, but alive.

“Hes still at home recovering,” Moxon said of his 2-year-old dog, also a German Shepherd. ” I’m hoping he’ll recover in the next few days.”

When this person (s) are apprehended .. no trial either bench or jury .. ride in the back seat with no flashlight, no gun or self defense accessories, no bulletproof accessories, no radio ….. Jimi didn’t use these things. And drive through some VERY TOUGH neighborhoods and let them out for rest breaks, close the door & lock it, let them back in the back seat when you’re ready.

Let’s not forget about Jimi. We know how the media moves on to the next big story of the day. I hope to see this murderer captured and justice done. Please post when apprehended. Thx
