New Haven, Connecticut (WTNH) - An East Haven family is fuming after learning their dog was cremated after it was shot by police.
Surveillance video from Saturday shows officers with guns drawn running down a driveway on George Street chasing after Mike Daddio.
He was wanted on a warrant for failure to appear in court following a drunk driving arrest.
Witnesses say, as they chased Daddio, they shot one of the dogs.
The family says the cremation may have covered up evidence in the case and they've hired an attorney to look into it.
Police say shooting a dog is allowed by law if an officer feels they're in danger.
