Family’s Dog Tased And Dragged To Death By Police After He Accidentally Escaped From His Home

Published: January 31, 2023 at 04:21 PM Author: Penny Eims

Lodi, CA – A family’s beloved dog is dead after he was repeatedly tased and dragged by Lodi police officers on the afternoon of January 24. His name was Enzo, and the two-year-old Husky was running free because a door was accidentally left unlatched at his home, allowing him to escape.

Video uploaded to social media captures Enzo’s last moments alive…and the footage is brutal to watch. Enzo can be seen standing in the street when an officer approaches and discharges a taser gun. Enzo falls to his side, briefly regains his footing, and then falls over once again.

While Enzo is being tased, an animal control officer secures a catchpole snare around his neck.

The first officer CONTINUES to deploy the taser as Enzo is dragged across the pavement to an animal control vehicle.

The non-stop deployment of the taser, in addition to being dragged with a snare around his neck, causes Enzo to die. His last moments alive were filled with pain and terror.

On the video, a stunned witness can be heard questioning one of the officers about why Enzo was tased and dragged. The man can be heard stating that Enzo had been standing there with him and his girlfriend, allowing them to pet him before the police showed up.

Why was Enzo tased THE ENTIRE TIME that he was being dragged by his neck? Why was he tased at all if he had been standing there, letting strangers pet him? Why was he dragged by his neck?

Suffice it to say, Enzo’s death has caused outrage among nearly everyone who has viewed the shocking video. And his owners, Anna Marquez, and Aline Galeno are rightfully devastated by Enzo’s untimely and cruel demise.

The police claim that Enzo had been trying to attack kids before they were called; a claim that is disputed. In fact, it has been alleged that the claim of Enzo acting aggressively was a lie created to save the officers who were involved from being held accountable for Enzo’s death.

The individuals identified as being involved in Enzo’s death are Officers Timothy Ivey, Chris Delgado, and animal control officer Jordan Kranich.

If you are appalled by this incident and want these officers to be held accountable for Enzo’s death, please add your name to the petition today! We need your support to show officials that Enzo’s life mattered.

We the undersigned demand that the Lodi Police Department conduct a full investigation into this deadly incident. We demand that the body cam footage be released and that the statement from whoever was allegedly frightened of Enzo be made public. If the investigation shows that these officers were in the wrong, as it appears they were, we want them to be held accountable for this dog’s death. Officers who abuse their power should not be allowed to continue being part of law enforcement.

Video footage of Enzo’s last moments alive can be viewed to the right side of this petition if you are viewing from a computer. It is difficult to watch, especially knowing the devastating outcome.

21,363 Allan Rubin Police should be convicted of animal abuse, just as civilians are. However, the police should receive a stiffer sentence, aren't they supposed to know better? To protect and serve, does NOT mean kill a dog that attacked no one and the only crime it committed was escaping his yard which was his human's fault!! Punish all those officers to the fullest extent of the law!!! Aug 09, 2023
