No arrests were made after a concealed carry holder shot another man’s German Shepherd at a dog park in the Loop this morning. Fortunately, the pooch survived.
The two men were at D’Angelo Dog Park, 438 South Franklin, when they began arguing shortly before 3 a.m. Friday. One of them released his German Shepherd, which prompted the other — a concealed carry holder — to shoot the animal, according to Officer Hector Alfaro, a CPD spokesperson.
An officer who pulled up a police camera feed of the dog park moments after the incident said the animal appeared to be moving around without any noticeable problems. The CPD camera was pointed in a different direction at the time of the shooting, however.
Police transported the dog and its owner to a 24-hour veterinary hospital for treatment. The concealed carry holder, who lives near the dog park, was released. A simple assault report is being completed this morning.
