Detective Seeks Justice, after K-9 Killed by Poisoning

K-9 POISONEDRHODE ISLAND (WGGB) — A police detective from Westport, Mass. is seeking justice, after his canine died from poisoning.

Detective Jeff Majewski maintains that a criminal intentionally poisoned his German shepherd, Siren, as revenge for something Majewski did while on the job.

Siren was one year into his training to become a Rhode Island Search and Rescue dog. Majewski was training Siren with his girlfriend when the dog suddenly could not walk.

“That MRI showed he was hemorrhaging in his back and it was pressing on his spinal cord,” Majewski recalled, “My girlfriend and I looked in his eyes for that last time and said goodbye.”

The test results showed that the dog was poisoned. That’s when Majewski came to the conclusion that his dog had been poisoned.

“It was a cowardly act and I do feel the dog was targeted as a result of something that I did at work,” he said.

Majewski wrote an editorial in a local newspaper to raise awareness, which brought letters of support from around the area.

“He could have saved someone’s life and that’s what’s very difficult right now,” Majewski said. “That dog had a future where he could have helped somebody and someone took that away.”

Now, all Majewski wants is justice.

“I want to hold somebody accountable. I want somebody to pay the price for what they did.”
