"DID YOU SHOOT MY F&%ING DOG?" the man cries out in the video
, pinned to wall by an officer. "OH MY GOD! WHAT THE F&%K DID YOU DO THAT FOR!"
Yes, another cop-shoots-dog story, this one from Columbia (click here
for yesterday's story).
Police there raided
the home of 25-year-old Jonathan E. Whitworth
back in February, thinking he had a big ol' stash of Mary Jane, according to the Columbia Daily Tribune
. He did not.
In fact, all he had was a wee bit of pot, a grinder and a pipe. (His wife and child were there.) He has since pleaded guilty to misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia charges. But had something else in the house that night: a corgi and a pit bull that seemed "aggressive." Police killed the pit bull and wounded the corgi.

has uploaded a video of the raid, in which you can hear a dog squealing in pain.
Whitworth is reportedly considering suing
the police for their actions. The police are saying they think protocol
was followed. The matter is being reviewed internally, as is every
incident in which a weapon is fired by officers.
