I won't. It'll love me because I'm a big dog person. By far my favorite pet.

I'm going to get a greyhound when I graduate. A truck and a greyhound. That's the life for me.

A life without genitals.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

A Teton County, Idaho family is outraged after they say a sheriff's deputy tried to murder their dog in their own front yard.

    The Barboza family has owned their dog Bobby for five years. A few days ago they say a Teton County Idaho Sheriff's Deputy knocked on their door demanding to see the dog.

    Leonel Barboza, Dog Owner: "He says, 'I'm here to put him down. I'm here to kill him.'"

    The officer told Leo Barboza there had been a complaint Bobby had bitten someone.

    Barboza: "I said, 'Do you have any proof or anything?' He says, 'I don't need any proof.'"

    So Leo got the dog while the deputy pulled out a rifle from his car. They walked a few feet from the Barboza's home where Leo's wife and his three year old son were inside.

    Leo and the officer tied the dog to a pole when the deputy fired three shots. The dog then collapsed. Leo's son heard the gunshots and opened the front door. Meanwhile...

    Barboza: "A bunch of kids just got off the bus and they were all on the street. All the kids were watching the officer shooting the dog. My heart was broken seeing an officer killing my dog."

    The deputy then got in his vehicle and drove away leaving the dog bleeding profusely from his head almost dead.

    Barboza: "I came back inside with my wife and hid. We were hugging each other crying about our dog because we were gonna miss him. He's been with us for five years."

    That night Leo's father-in-law, who witnessed the whole thing, had a nervous breakdown and had to be hospitalized. When the family returned home from the hospital a few days later, they were shocked to see their dog alive.

    Barboza: "My wife called me up and she's like, 'Hey, the dog's alive!' I was like, 'What are you serious?' I was happy my dog was alive."

    The Teton County Idaho Sheriff wouldn't say much about this case except that it's still under investigation. He also said there's been numerous complaints about the Barboza's dog. But when I checked court records, I could only find one complaint filed last year and that was dismissed.

    Nate Eaton, Channel 3 Eyewitness News: "Did your dog ever bite anybody?"

    Barboza: "Not to my knowledge. No."

    Eaton: "And this was the first time you'd ever heard of any complaint?"

    Barboza: "Yes, this is the first time. I still think about it. You know my kid thinks all the cops are bad because an officer came and shot his dog. Honestly when I think about it I get mad too and I don't trust that officer any more."

    The Barboza's took Bobby to the vet. He's now on medication to get the wounds taken care of. The holes in his head will be sewn up after Thanksgiving.

    The family has hired attorney Josh Garner. I spoke with him this evening and he says, "If the facts are as they appear, the deputies behavior is disgusting, troublesome, and appalling. The officer needs to be held responsible."

    Several sources say the officer is still on duty and still working in the county.

    A Teton County sheriff's deputy is suspended and people across the country are outraged after an exclusive Channel 3 Eyewitness News investigation.

    Tuesday night we told you about a family who said deputy Joseph Gutierrez showed up at their door, demanded to see their dog Bobby, then shot him three times.

    Now Bobby's owners, the Barboza family, plans to take legal action against the Teton County Sheriff's Office after they say Deputy Joseph Gutierrez shot their dog three times and left him for dead.

    Josh Garner, Barboza's Attorney: "We intend on putting the county on notice that we are serious about this and that we intend on taking some action."

    This comes on the same night the Idaho Humane Society in Boise speaks out about the shooting.

    Dr. Joseph Rosenthal, Idaho Humane Society: "This is an act of cruelty and to find out that later the dog was discovered to still be alive and suffering it's just an example."

    Local residents are also talking about the story. Justin Frandsen says he was in the sheriff's office the night before the dog was shot and he heard deputies talking about the animal.

    Justin Frandsen: "They were joking and laughing about what weapons they wanted to shoot him with and how they were gonna shoot him. At the end of the conversation, they were almost feuding over who got to shoot the dog."

    Shocked by what he heard, Frandsen says he spoke up to the deputies.

    Frandsen: "You guys must feel like you're real big cops, real tough guys, to have to go out and basically assassinate somebody's house pet."

    Other residents think Gutierrez may have been justified in shooting the dog and the whole story isn't being reported.

    Nancy Nead: "I would bet that the deputy was either protecting himself because I have hard time believe that the deputy would just come and shoot the dog without a reason."

    We went to the sheriff's office and asked to talk with the sheriff and Deputy Gutierrez. They were not there. Channel 3 invites them to share their side of the story.

    We have learned the sheriff's office has had multiple death threats made against them. We don't support or approve of that.

    To support the Barboza family legally or financially, email their attorney Josh Garner at garnerlawoffice@gmail.com.

Crazy goons.

Just another Sheriff/Deputy stereotype.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.
