Outrage over Cop Calling Dog Shooting “Awesome”

A Facebook page has been started in support of the slain dog, as well as a petition calling for disciplinary action to be taken against the flippant officer.

Ardmore, Oklahoma police officer Brice Woolley is under fire from animal lovers for shooting escaped family dog Cali and then remarking how “awesome” it looked.  According to police captain Eric Hamblin, the shooting was justified, but Cali’s supporters are calling for discipline.

Sarah Brown was horrified to come home and learn that her pit bull had been shot to death, but to have a witness tell her that the officer who murdered her dog laughed and bragged about how “awesome” it looked when the force of the shotgun blast blew her collar off was downright gruesome and sadistic.  Not exactly the kind of thing you’d expect to hear uttered from a man meant to “protect and serve” his community.

“I cried so much, and began to figure out what needed to be done, because I just knew this was totally unjust,” Sarah said.

Captain Hamblin claimed that officer Woolley was in the right to shoot Cali, as it was better to shoot her before she bit someone.

“I don’t think it’s wise for a police department to wait until a dog acting aggressively actually bites somebody,” he said.

But Sarah can’t find a single neighbor who will say Cali was aggressive.

“Cali was family.  And it’s not funny.”

A Facebook page has been started in support of the slain dog, as well as a petition calling for disciplinary action to be taken against the flippant officer.  Members of the public are being asked to take a stand against trigger-happy police and the tendency for such issues to be regarded as justified measures that have no consequences by signing the petition.

The story according to the Justice for Cali administrator:

Cali was a fun-loving, caring, peaceful family dog. On March 19, 2014, she escaped the backyard fence and was roaming through the neighborhood. A neighbor called animal control to come and retrieve the dog. The cops showed up before the animal control.


When the cops pulled up, someone informed them animal control was already on their way. Officer Brice Woolley said, “I’m not waiting for animal control.”


He then went to his car, pulled out his shotgun and shot Cali in her neck. After he shot her, he laughed and bragged about how “awesome” it looked when her collar flew off. She had done nothing to provoke the officer. She died immediately.


Animal control soon showed up. When he got there, Woolley informed the animal control that he had shot the dog. The animal control officer said, “We’ll just write in the report that she tried to attack you and others in the neighborhood.” If she was attacking him, then how did he have time to go all the way to his car and get a shotgun?

When the owner, Sarah, got there, the officer said, “We shot your dog, she’s dead.” Imagine, if that was how you found out the death of your family pet.


Sarah was at a loss for words. She went down to the police station to find out what she could do about this. They gave her the run-around and basically told her he was in the right to shoot her dog even with a witness to the crime. The police department in Ardmore is known for sweeping many cases under the rug.


We want this story to go viral. We want everyone to know the truth. This officer needs to be relieved of his duties. Justice needs to be served. Cali’s voice will be heard.

An update from March 22nd:

Well guys I spoke with the chief of police today and he totally brushed me and the Carter County Republican Party president (Anna Flatt) off.

He wouldn’t even tell us the city ordinance for this situation. Not even if the police had to go through some type of training for dogs. NOTHING!!

He was watching TV and Anna asked him to please turn it off because it doesn’t feel like he was listening. He responded with, “no, I’m not done.”

…It isn’t over yet! I am a fighter and I won’t give up! And it’s pretty obvious I’ve got some pretty great and amazing people behind our family and Cali girl.

  1. I HOPE THE OFFICIERWHO DID THIS SUFFERS DAILY KNOWING HE KILLED A CHILD’S PET AND A LOVING LOYAL DOG PRAYING FOR THE FAMILY KEEP FIGHTING HE [THE COP]NEEDS TO BE CHARGED AND REMOVED FROM DUTY

    1. You must be joking. Immediately after doing it he laughed and bragged about how awesome it looked as this dog’s neck exploded from the force of his shotgun. Do you REALLY think “knowing he killed a child’s pet” bothers this POS one scintilla? This guy is a PSYCHO! This is the kind of people they give guns to and authority to shoot anyone they want any time they want for no reason. I will never, ever, for any reason even consider so much as driving on any freeway that comes within 500 miles of the STATE LINE of Oklahoma since they knowingly authorize and equip psycho killers to act out their murderous fantasies. Must be a great place to live – NOT.

  2. Unfortunately a good deal of law enforcement officers are just as pathetic as the criminals they are supposed to be better than. This sort of thing happens more often than any of us would care to know. I sincerely hope karma comes to this officer and he ends up losing his job or being disciplined, though I doubt it will happen as the animal control officer and the entire department sound like they are all in this together. The best I can hope is that he suffers a miserable death or better yet, if he has children, maybe he can see one of them suffer a miserable death at the hand of some other. Let’s see if he would laugh about that.

  3. This is a horrible story, when us destroying something awesome? This so called police officer should be fiASS and made to work in a animal rescue for 12 months! He may see what people with his mentality do in a daily basis to animals. My god, he’s a cop! Sue his ASS!!!!!

  4. This officer obviously faked his way through school and the psyche eval.. I am thinking that according to statistics of animal abusers, and this one fits the bill, that they are usually quite without a conscience…in other words… they fall in the catagory of serial killers and the like… He needs to be removed from service..he needs his badge taken and possibly put either in a mental hospital on full lock down or put behind bars… There is no rehabilitating a criminal like this.. He was criminal in his actions…He wasn’t protecting anyone,, only his own jollies.. I am VERY concerned about ever meeting this individual.. I wouldn’t trust him.. If he ever showed up in my neighborhood, I would call his superiors and have him removed…even tho he is a police officer… I wouldn’t feel safe around him in no way.. He gives me the creeps…. Yup.. He needs to be in a lock down facility somewhere and EXTENSIVE evaluations done on him…Anyone that would first do what he did and say what he said is in need of being removed from the vacinity of ANY live being with a heart beat… Sorry.. I say it as I see it…and feel it…namaste.

  5. This makes me sick. This is one police officer that needs to be slapped in the face just saying. If anyone did this to the pit that I take care of I would go to jail for killing the pos.who did that to him.

  6. The officer and his Capt. are very very mentally sick people. This is what the higher authorities wil do to cover up their crimes for their reputation sake. How can we humans trust our llifes with so called law enforcement. It a total disgrace for all humanity at this era this mentally insane people exist. How does the officer and his beloved captain feels when God decides to punish them for their crimes by taking away the lives of their childrens, wives and even themselves. Dogs are not just animals but aremembers of our family. Both of you are murderes. This is only one of their crimes that surfaced and God knows how many murders they must have commited. Cali may your soul not rest in peace until these people are punished for the crimes they have commited. What goes around comes around.

  7. It’s pathetic how an officer of the law can be a jerk! Hope the law applies to them as well. In fact being a politer officer , he should be dealt with even more severely.

  8. That cop is a worthless bastard. I hope he rots in jail for many years for this. The dog did nothing to provoke him. He is entirely in the wrong! And the animal control officer who twisted his report should be heald accountable too. That entire police department needs a good long looking at. They should be replaced and that damn worthless officer should be fired an taken to a court of law to be suid for every penny he owns, it’s the elast he deserves.

  9. typical gung ho western cowboy shootem up, he should not hold the position he is in, he’s an idiot and should not be allowed to be near guns and even less so a policeman, if his senior officer merely brushes off the complaint in the off handed manner stated then I would say the county sounds like the OK coral and really needs putting under the microscope, he still murdered this dog and should be brought to book for it.

  10. Exactly the kind of “peace” officer we DONT need – this is the guy who gives law enforcement a very black eye. He’s a psychopath and a killer. He would not hesitate to shoot someone in the back and then make up a story about how “threatened” he was. This cop needs removal from the force. What a disgusting piece of merde’

  11. “I don’t think it’s wise for a police department to wait until a dog acting aggressively actually bites somebody,” that is a truly asinine comment from someone that has no business holding ANY official position in any organization!!!!!

    If a dog is not acting aggressive & has not bitten any one that means its is not dangerous you fucking moron! These 2 breed bigoted assholes need to be striped of their badges and never allowed to ever own a gun or a dog!

  12. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE JUST FIND THIS GUY WHILE HE’S WALKING DOWN HIS STREET, PUT A SHOTGUN TO HIS NECK, AND PULL THE TRIGGER?! I MEAN HOW CAN WE EVEN DEBATE THIS. This guy has lived about 30 years too long. YOU CANT FIX STUPID OR SADISTIC ASSHOLES! THEY SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE! I TRULLY HOPE SOMEONE HAS THE BALLS TO DO IT AND NOT GET CAUGHT!

  13. What do you expect from a bunch of hillbilly inbred mother f’ers!!! It’s not like they have advanced training…if you were in the boy scouts you can be a police officer. This guy obviously has mental issues, this guys needs some help before he does this to a person….then they can’t just sweep it under the rug!!

  14. As a Federal K9 officer not only does this sicken me but singlehandedly he has given EVERY LEO a bad name. Why should the public have any faith that we can ne trusted with anything when some have such callous disregard for the life of a valued family member and then show sadistic glee?

    I am so sorry. No one, no one should have to go through this.
    My heartfelt condolences to the family.

    1. God bless you sir. You seem to be a man of integrity. I’m sorry we tend to judge you all because of the actions of a few pieces of dirt, who should not be called law enforcement officers. I have to remind myself (and others) that I have met some really decent and truly caring officers, numerous times in my life. You are not all like this piece of crap! Thank you for reminding me of this fact. I can only hope for justice for Cali’s family. This creep should definitely lose his badge!

  15. This cops should be takin off the streets how the hell is he allowed to shoot and kill this dog and then laugh about it. Nothing funny about it at all. The dog wasn’t mean and even if she was and she did try to bite his dumb ass he could of used his taser this is sick these cops ate on power trips and cops like that should not be on the street. Poor Cali I feel so sad for her and her family. I pray you get justice. But know that one day her killer will have to face the man up stairs and he won’t be able to laugh his way thru him. RIP CALI YOUR A GOOD GIRL!!!

  16. This officer needs to be taken off the street. Someone so gun happy should not be carrying a gun. That Poor dog!

  17. P.O.S cop. That poor dog and that poor little girl lost her best friend all because of a cop who def shouldn’t even be free to walk among us never mind be a cop.

  18. What I don’t get is that he shot the dog from behind, so the dog was NOT attacking him at all! What took animals control so long to get there? Why didn’t a neighbor get the dog and bring him back to his yard? Again , why do people leave their dogs outside in their yards when they are NOT home? People, bring your pets indoors when you leave the house. That way, they are safe from, ” crazy police officers” who shoot to kill, then always say the dog was vicious. This cop laughed about the death of an innocent family pet, who got out of her yard…just heart breaking! The cop should be arrested and charged with excessive force and murder. NOT FUNNY AT ALL!!!

  19. Cop sounds like a sadistic shit! Shouldn’t be carrying a gun. Needs psych exam — then, fire him!

  20. just wanted to express my condolences to the family. And say I’m grateful that my own family members in law enforcement are also involved in dog rescue.

  21. cruelty to animals and enjoyng it is the first sign of potential serial killers. It is time that these officers have to take extensive psych evaluations before being allowed to be on the force.too many bad guys becoming cops.
