The poor thing was injured, what did she expect him to do? Shoot it? Beat it with a batton?

Canadian Police Officers are now required to fill in a huge amount of official paperwork each time their side-arm is discharged....

So my bet is he took the 'Paperwork Reduction' initiative a little too far and went for a simpler Plan B.

As a deer hunter, I would never allow an animal to suffer in that way for so long. He does deserve to face the consequences for that.

Yes. A quick bullet to the head, or a heavy blow to knock it out followed by a slit in the jugular, but my bet is that er's assessment is probably right and it highlights the lack of initiative allowed in police forces nowadays due to the H&S and CYA atmosphere most of them seem to have encouraged.

Don't know about the Canadian Police, but what's the bet that if he'd shot it, apart from all the paperwork, he would have been required to recover the projectile.

When driving out in the bush, I had the misfortune to hit a kangaroo, which was severely injured. Being far from any town or help, I had to despatch it using the wheel brace. It wasn't a female so there was no chance of leaving a joey in the the pouch.

Could think of one South Australian police officer that ought to adopt that approach after a video of him trying to dispatch an injured roo using his sidearm went near viral in November.
Fired a grand total of 7 shots from no more than 5 meters and the roo just shrugged it off.

Because he missed with all seven shots?

Would not surprise me one bit!

The average SAPOL member is more of a danger to both him/herself and the general Public than anything else, when it comes to the use of their issued sidearms!
This was said to me by several licenced and experienced Pistol shooters whom were at one time or another employed as Firearms instructors by SAPOL.

The local news outlets said the officer "euthanized" the deer by driving over it several times.

Doesn't sound like a "good death" to me. Some reporters need to get whacked on the head with a dictionary.
