The folks at Ozymandias Media
are less than $15,000 short of their $100,000 donation goal to
produce Puppycide, a documentary about the terrible trend
of law enforcement officials unnecessarily shooting citizens’ dogs,
claiming (usually incorrectly) that the pets were behaving in a
The studio has 15 days left to reach its goal. Their
Kickstarter page describes more about their project:
When we first learned about puppycide, we assumed that these

“travel to incidents as they occur; step-up our inquiries through
Freedom of Information requests of police records; shoot more
