A family’s dog was shot three times by a small town police officer. That much is fact.
But the events that sparked the death of the golden retriever has sparked much controversy in Camden, which has a population of just 191.
The Wilhite family is asking for justice after they say the police officer shot the dog in their own yard.
“I just felt like I just watched one of my family members be murdered,” said Rhiannon Wilhite.
The police officer says he was protecting himself and others say the family refused to control the aggressive dog.
