Animal rights activists plan vigil for dogs shot dead by police

Animal activists, Animal Rising, have planned a candlelit vigil for the two dogs that were shot dead by armed Metropolitan Police officers on Sunday.


The Met Police insist that their officers did nothing wrong in killing the “dangerous” pets and arresting their owner. Eyewitnesses claimed that a woman was “attacked” by the dogs, but she was not seriously injured.

Animal Rising has organised a vigil outside the Met headquarters for tomorrow evening, claiming that the force has “proven themselves to be a dangerous establishment time after time.

” The activist group has accused the Met Police of enforcing unjust laws and overextending their powers, oppressing and brutally using force on innocent people and animals alike.

The Metropolitan Police has cleared two officers of misconduct who shot dead the dogs in Limehouse, east London. Louie Turnbull, the owner of the dogs, was charged with being the owner of a dog that was dangerously out of control and with having custody of a dog while disqualified from owning or keeping a dog.

Turnbull appeared in custody at Thames Magistrates’ Court yesterday. A barber and a shop owner who witnessed the incident claimed that the dogs did not attack the woman, but rather attacked another dog.

The woman got caught up in their lead and fell over. The barber claimed that he did not think the owner was attacked by the dogs, but she did get tangled in the lead and fell over.

The Met Police were called to Commercial Road on Sunday after 5 pm, where the aggressive behaviour of two dogs posed a significant threat to them. A man was arrested in connection with the incident for having a dog dangerously out of control and assault offences.

A Taser was discharged by the police, but no one was taken to hospital. Both dogs were destroyed by the police at the scene. The Metropolitan Police’s Directorate of Professional Standards has conducted a thorough review of the incident, including all the available body-worn footage, and is satisfied that there are no concerns around officer conduct.

The spokesperson said that the decision was never easy for any officer, but the police had a duty to act where necessary before any further injury was caused.
