Alleged Dog Shooting in Arma Under Investigation

Updated:

Arma, Kansas resident Casandra Ogdean reflects on an incident that occurred yesterday at the home she shares with her boyfriend Bryan Sawyer and their two children.

Sawyer had visited City Hall to work out a payment plan for their electric bill. When this proved to be unsuccessful, both he and Ogdean said he "made a big deal about it."

"Things got out of hand," said Mayor Marvin Bualle. "That's when police got involved and it became a police incident."

According to Ogdean, a city utilities official and police officer visited the family's home to shut off their electricity due to late payment. What ensued was allegedly fatal to the family's dog who was chained to the electric pole in the back yard.

"He told me to take my dog off the chain so he wouldn't shoot him so they could turn off my electricity," said Ogdean. "So I took him off and they shot him anyways."

Ogdean says the officer shot the dog twice in the back yard, but did not kill him. This concerned her boyfriend Sawyer.

"I said he's got too gun shots in him that's inhuman" said Sawyer. "Put him down. And he eventually put him down."

Mayor Bualle confirms reports have been made and that Arma Chief Of Police has contacted the county attorney to investigate the situation.

"This hurts us to have an animal die," said Bualle. "And we were involved in that death. So, that's a concern. We want to do right."
