from TX-RPOA~Texas Farmer reports break in, deputy shoots his dog!
April 24, 2014
RPOA received the information below from Martin Kralik, our RPOA Dallas
Chapter Chairman. This incident could have been avoided if the deputy had
simply stayed in his vehicle and honked his horn. This is a rural area.

Please watch the videos – they are very telling. The incident is under
investigation and when I called, all inquiries are directed to:
Sheriff David Traylor
Rains County Jail
P. O. Box 398
Emory, TX 75440
Phone: 903-473-5000 ext 280
This by all appearances is a clear case that this deputy should have never
been in this position of authority given his statements on video of previous
dog encounters and fear of getting bitten and/or he was NEVER trained or
poorly trained. NO ONE like this should ever be given a position of public
or private authority!!!
He obviously should have been ‘retrained’ that ALL DOGS BARK AND COME TOWARD
YOU WHEN YOU ENTER THEIR environment.
He claims to have been threatened, ON THE FARMERS PROPERTY, however the dog
was shot in the BACK of the head (see Vet report).
This is an OUTRAGE!!!
I would hope that this deputy will be fired and the county held responsible
for losses to the farmer.
Is Raines County out of control much like Marion County?!? You bet we are watching and paying attention to what happens in Texas…and when yet another incident occurs we make sure that too is re-addressed…links of interest that apply to Raines County:
So when you make that call, please remind them that isn’t the first case of actual, intentional animal abuse that is done by or supported by the sheriff’s office and their judicial system…MAKE IT STOP!!!
