A Salt Lake City man whose dog was killed by a police officer in its own backyard last Wednesday said he would not be satisfied unless the officer was fired from the force.

Sean Kendall, 27, met with high-ranking Salt Lake City police officials on Monday to discuss the fatal shooting of his 2-year-old Weimaraner, Geist. The dog was shot in the head by a police officer during a door-to-door search for a 3-year-old boy whose parents had reported him missing from their house near 2500 South and Fillmore Street.

The boy was eventually found asleep in his own basement.

Though the meeting was "productive," said Kendall, he remained "extremely frustrated and upset" at the apparent reluctance of the police to take action against the officer who shot his dog.
