A Police Officer in the United States lured over a families’ pet dogs by whistling and clapping, before shooting one of them dead.

The Ohio cop, named as Josh Tenney, actively clapped, whistled and even shouted ‘come here puppy’ to the friendly dogs, before unloading almost an entire clip into one of the dogs, killing it.

The officer’s shocking actions were caught on Tenney’s body cam, and have provoked unprecedented outrage on social media.

The video begins with Tenney approaching an auto store and car wash, before exiting his car to speak with an unknown member of the public. 

The audio on Officer Tenney’s body cam is then activated, before capturing him clearly calling the dogs over. What is unclear is whether Officer Tenney was aware that the body cam audio had been switched on.

With the sound clearly audible, Tenney then begins clapping and whistling, shouting ‘come here’ and ‘come here puppies’ in an obviously friendly attempt to lure the pet dogs towards him. 

With the group of dogs in plain site the Officer continues to call them over, with the dogs initially ignoring the officer. Then in response to the Officer’s persistent friendly calls, the dogs begin leisurely jogging over to him wagging their tails. 

Officer Tenney then backs away from the dogs, shooting one of them in the face twice, then shoots it twice more before the dog slumps to the ground dead.

Evolve needs your help more than ever!

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
