What happened to Marshall and Millions? On Sunday, May 7, the two American Staffordshire Terriers named Marshall and Millions were tragically shot dead by Metropolitan Police officers in Tower Hamlets, London, which ignited a protest and controversy.
What Happened to Millions and Marshall Dog?
Louie Turnbull is a homeless owner of two American Staffordshire Terriers named Marshall and Millions dog, aged three years and nine months. The two dogs allegedly attacked a woman and her dog, which prompted a shooting by the police, although witnesses around the place claim that woman got entangled in the dog’s leashes and was never in real danger. However, according to bystanders, dogs were not a threat to the woman and his dogs and were killed unnecessarily.
This incident sparked protests and debate by Animal Rising in London due to the unnecessary killing of innocent dogs.
This shooting incident is currently investigating by Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).
Louie Turnbull show his anguish to police that they brandished weapons and frightened him and the dog. He said the dogs were on a leash, and he was trying to pull them away when they shot dead. Louie Turnbull himself was tasered and arrested by London police and later appeared in court with charges of owning animals that were out of control.
The owner of a dangerously out-of-control Marshall and Millions dog pleaded not guilty, but they pleaded guilty to being in possession while disqualified from owning one.
