Filer Man to Get $35 thousand for Dog Shot by Police
FILER, Idaho (AP) — Officials in the south-central Idaho city of Filer have agreed to a $35,000 settlement after a police officer shot and killed a resident's dog.
An attorney for the city's insurance company tells The Times-News (http://bit.ly/18FyJXK) in a story on Wednesday that Rick Clubb will receive the money as part of a negotiated settlement.
Officer Tarek Hassani on Feb. 8 responded to a report of dogs running lose.
Hassani's dashboard-mounted camera shows two dogs circling him, barking at him and sometimes lunging toward him. In the video, he kicks at a 7-year-old black Labrador named Hooch before shooting it.
An investigation by Nampa police cleared Hassani.
Clubb says the case is settled but it doesn't bring Hooch back.
