A Union City Police Department officer used his service weapon Saturday to humanely kill a sick dog.
The officer received a report of a dog found on East Cheatham Street which had flies on it and had labored breathing. The report stated the brown/black long-haired medium-sized dog was clearly sick and suffering. Since no owner could be found and residents said it was a stray, the dog was shot once. The resident agreed to dispose of the dog.
