Ellen Whited of Gallitzin tells the “Altoona Mirror” that a state police trooper shot and killed a black lab mix Sunday afternoon along Route 36. Whited says she pulled over because the dog looked like hers. One cop allegedly threatened to arrest her if she didn’t leave, then he shot the dog. Whited claims they whipped it over in the bushes. State police later told Whited the dog was aggressive and turned on the officer and he had to shoot it because there was a visible wound. Whited retrieved the body, which she says has no wounds other than a bullet hole, and she is hoping to track down the owner.
