SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – After a police officer shot and killed his Weimaraner named Geist, a Salt Lake City man went on a profanity-laced tirade questioning police about the shooting, according to a report on

Dog owner Sean Kendall posted the nine-minute clip on his Facebook page.

“He was inside the backyard in a fenced in area,” Kendall said in the clip. “What was the cause for an officer to shoot and kill my dog?”

When he confronted officers and demanded answers, police on scene said the officer entered Kendall’s property to look for a lost child. They said the officer felt threatened by the animal.

“Backing up slowly and leaving the residence is not an option?” Kendall asked. “Is that against policy, is that against training?”

Police offered to give Kendall a case number and listened patiently as the grieving man spoke.

The Humane Society of Utah will hold a “Justice for Geist Rally” this weekend in Salt Lake City.
