Michigan Cop Kills Dog in Wrong Address Warrantless Home Entry

On November 28th 2014, Jackson Police Officer Matt Peters came to 20 year old Eddie Harris’ residence looking for an individual to take to the hospital for a psychological evaluation. Peters entered the house without a warrant and when Harris came down to see who walked in his house, Peters shot his dog, Kane, just feet in front of him at the bottom of the stair case.

Then they learned they had the wrong address.

Harris explained that the police were there looking for someone who didn’t live at his address. The petition, which is not a warrant, stated that police should look at unit numbers 511 and 513 at the 500 block of South Blackstone Street. Neither address belongs to the individual named in the petition.

Harris said his dog Kane has never bitten anyone and has had no issues with animal control.
