Politeness goes to the dogs.
The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office has identified the man as 31-year-old Richard Jordan of Chatfield. This happened last Friday around 6:30 p.m. during an argument between Jordan and his girlfriend. It took place inside his residence at the 13,000 Block of Highway 52 SE.
At one point, the woman said she fell to the ground. Deputies said the argument escalated, and the dog tried to protect the woman by nipping at Jordan.
Jordan then allegedly shot the family dog with a 12 gauge shotgun and left the scene. The dog was an 8-year-old pitbull lab mix.
