South County Woman Sues Police For Killing Family Dog

ST. LOUIS (AP) – A pet owner’s federal lawsuit accuses the St. Louis County Police Department and two of its officers of wrongly killing her dog while allegedly storming her home last year.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Angela Zorich seeks unspecified damages and legal fees in the lawsuit filed Tuesday in St. Louis.

She alleges an officer who was part of a tactical unit unjustifiably shot and killed her 4-year-old pit bull in April of last year while storming her south county home to search for possible housing code violations. Zorich says the dog never acted aggressive and didn’t have time to bark before being killed.

A spokesman for the department, Sgt. Brian Schellman, says the tactical team is used to execute warrants or deal with barricaded suspects. He declined to discuss the lawsuit.
