He then approached Nala, who was being held down by another officer, Thomas Schmidt, and pressed the knife up to the dog’s throat. He then forced the blade into Nala’s neck and began slitting her throat open as she was held down by Officer Schmidt.

(CNN) - A Baltimore police officer faces felony animal cruelty charges after he slit the throat of a dog that had escaped from home, authorities said.
Officer Bolger has been working for the Baltimore Police Department for over 20 years. He has been suspended without pay, and charged with animal mutilation and cruelty.
After he was caught, he maintained that he killed the dog because he claimed that it “might have had rabies.”
His excuse was that if the dog had rabies, and if it had gotten away from the restraint pole, then it could have bit someone.
