Jeffrey BolgerBALTIMORE, MD – Baltimore police officer Jeffrey Bolger has been charged with felony animal cruelty after he slit the throat of a dog that had escaped from home, authorities said.

Nala, a 7-year-old Chinese Shar-Pei, went missing from her home on Saturday. Her owner, Sarah Gossard, had let the dog out of the house but didn’t notice the gate was open. After realizing Nala had gotten out, she spent the entire day looking for her.

Later that same day, a woman found Nala and was attempting to read the tags on the dog’s collar, which contained Sarah’s phone number, when Nala nipped at her hand. The woman was not seriously injured, but called police to report a stray dog.

When officers arrived, Nala was restrained using a dog pole around her neck. That’s when Bolger went full white knight and used a knife to slit the dog’s throat. According to witnesses, the 20 year veteran of the Baltimore police yelled, “I am going to fucking gut this thing,” before doing so.

As a result of her injuries, Nala would bleed to death. Sarah said she would learn from a neighbor that Nala had been put down, but didn’t learn the details of how she was put down until the news media told her yesterday.

“She went missing Saturday and after looking for her all day, I found out through a neighbor that she was put down,” she said.
“Police never contacted me until today. Only after did I find out more details. I learned from the news that she was stabbed in the throat. I want justice.”

She says Nala was not a violent dog, but has no doubt she nipped at the woman trying to check her tags. “She was just scared that day and through all of those events — scared and lost, thirsty, hungry,” Sarah said.

The Baltimore Police Department isn’t taking Bolger’s actions lightly. The 49-year-old has been suspended without pay, arrested and charged with animal cruelty, aggravated animal cruelty and malfeasance in office.

“This is an outrageous and unacceptable breach of our protocol. The BPD does not condone and will not condone such actions,” said Deputy Commissioner Dean Palmere, Baltimore City Police.
