Filer Resident To Receive $35,000 After Dog Shot

Nov 26, 2014

Officials in the south-central Idaho city of Filer have agreed to a $35,000 settlement after a police officer shot and killed a resident's dog.

An attorney for the city's insurance company tells The Times-News in a story on Wednesday that Rick Clubb will receive the money as part of a negotiated settlement.

Officer Tarek Hassani on Feb. 8 responded to a report of dogs running lose.

Hassani's dashboard-mounted camera shows two dogs circling him, barking at him and sometimes lunging toward him. In the video, he kicks at a 7-year-old black Labrador named Hooch before shooting it.

An investigation by Nampa police cleared Hassani.

Clubb says the case is settled but it doesn't bring Hooch back.
