St. Louis, Michigan: Officer Matt Vanhall Shoots Dog Multiple Times In Owner's Yard [View all]

By Jane Park

St. Louis, MI (WEYI/CNN) - A police officer's use of lethal force against a dog is fueling outrage in one Michigan community.

The officer says the dog attacked him, but witnesses tell another story.

A makeshift sign on the Goetzingers' front yard has put police in the hot seat, alleging one of its officers killed the family's golden retriever, Scout.

Neighbors say they're not buying the officer's statement he shot in self defense.
