At owner's request, Cumberland deputies shoot, kill dog

Posted December 9, 2015

— A Cumberland County sheriff's deputy shot and killed a bulldog Tuesday evening while serving a subpoena on its owner.

Carl Glindeman asked the deputy to shoot his dog after it bit him and was attacking a smaller dog.

According to the sheriff's office, deputies had served the subpoena at Glindeman's 309 Andrews Road home and were leaving when his bulldog rushed him in the carport.

Deputies first tried to hit and kick the dog to get it to unclench its teeth from Glindeman's leg. When it finally did, deputies said, it attacked a smaller dog of Glindeman's, and he asked them to fire to end the attack.

Glindeman's mother said he needed surgery on his leg. He spent the night Tuesday at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.

    There are no such things as "bad dogs" - only "bad owners".

    Poor dog probably lived a hard life and died hard too.

    Once again an abused dog pays the price for a sorry individual. They should have shot the owner. This was a RED LIGHT watch for Glindeman's name in the future area problems.

    A dog attacks his owner, and not the strangers (police) in the carport? A dog who attacks his owner rather than defend him? This was an abused dog.
