    (here's a hint, if people with no clue have the capacity to give wrong answers on a site, it's not a valid source, try citing a credible news source about someone being charged with murder for killing a police dog, or a statute or court ruling authorizing such a charge)
    Believe what you wish. Ask any police officer and he will tell you the same thing.

    https://www.animallaw.info/statute/w...dated-dog-laws

    Summary:
    These Wyoming statutes comprise the state's dog laws. Among the provisions include damage done to livestock by dogs, rabies vaccination requirements, and municipal powers to regulate dogs.



    6-5-211 Injuring or killing a police dog, fire dog, search and rescue dog or police horse prohibited; penalties.

    (a) Any person who knowingly, willfully and without lawful cause or justification permanently disables or inflicts death upon any animal defined in subsection (b) of this section shall be liable for restitution by order of a court and shall be guilty of a felony punishable by imprisonment for not more than ten (10) years, a fine of not more than ten thousand dollars ($10,000.00), or both.

    (b) As used in this section:

    (i) "Police dog" means any dog that is owned, or the service of which is employed, by a law enforcement or corrections agency for the principal purpose of aiding in the detection of criminal activity, enforcement of laws or apprehension of offenders;

    (ii) "Police horse" means any horse that is owned, or the service of which is employed, by a law enforcement or corrections agency for the principal purpose of aiding in the detection of criminal activity, enforcement of laws or apprehension of offenders;

    (iii) "Fire dog" means any dog that is owned, or the service of which is employed, by a fire department, a special fire district or the state fire marshal for the principal purpose of aiding in the detection of flammable materials or the investigation of fires;

    (iv) "Search and rescue dog" means any search and rescue dog that is owned, or the service of which is utilized, by a fire department, a law enforcement or corrections agency, a special fire district or the state fire marshal for the principal purpose of aiding in the detection of missing persons, including persons who are lost, who are trapped under debris as a result of a natural, manmade or technological disaster or who are drowning victims.
    Laws 2001, ch. 205, 1, eff. July 1, 2001; Laws 2007, ch. 69, 1, eff. July 1, 2007.

    Can "I forgot" be justifiable?
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Did you see what americanwoman posted?

    Why would the penalty be 10 years in jail for killing a police dog if I am wrong about what I said.

    Do you know more than the actual statute?

    Because that's the penalty for killing a police dog. Homicide of a police officer is punishable by life.

    My point still stands why is this officer being charged with animal cruelty instead of this statute.

    Presumably because he didn't knowingly inflict death.

    I agree in general that there is an issue with officers not being charged under statutes that other people would be for the same conduct, but that doesn't seem to be so in this case.

    Come to think of it, I'm not sure why he's being charged with animal cruelty.
