Dear Sir or Madam:
When an outsider gets contact with the owner of a pet, this animal doesn't get any special attention. The animal often tends to put itself in a defensive position, but to the outsider it feels like aggresive behavior. Unfortunatly this leads often to the dead of the animal. They call it self-defense, use of firearm... to prevent injuries to the person. It's all legitimate, yet a lot of misery would be avoided if one communicates clearly and use other resources. Police could:
- Inform the agents that an animal is present;
- Purchase stun weapons that may be used if the animal is seen as a potential danger. To set both agent and animal in safety;
- Give courses to the agents so they get to understand the body language of an animal;
- Offer training so agents can practice correct responses on animal behavior.
Thanks for your consideration!
