LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A southeastern Nebraska couple is demanding the firing of a Wilber police officer, saying he shot their dog in front of their 13-year-old daughter.

An attorney for the family, Dustin Garrison, tells the Lincoln Journal Star (https://bit.ly/1EwmArl ) that the collie boxer mix was shot Wednesday by an officer responding to a report of a dog at large.

Garrison says the teenage girl opened a back door to see the officer in her yard with a gun pointed at the dog. Garrison says the girl screamed for him not to shoot, but that the officer shot the dog twice.

Wilber Police Chief Stephen Sunday said Tuesday he’s been ordered not to comment by City Attorney Tad Eikman and Mayor Roger Chrans.

Eikman and Chrans didn’t immediately returned messages left Tuesday.
