Jacqueline Maguire, head of FBI’s Philadelphia division, fatally shot a dog in center city Monday evening. Sources say she was walking her dog and the stray dog, who was larger, came and attacked her small, defenseless canine. Maguire was off-duty  and was walking her dog past the Touraine Apartments near 16th and spruce streets when the incident occurred.

This sparked an uproar social media with multiple users exclaiming that Maguire should be suspended without pay.

 

As tension rose, Protesters took to the streets and gathered in front of the bureau’s Philadelphia office to emphasize their stance. “People assume pitbulls are very agressive,” said Mansi Bhagwate, found of animal rights group Revolution Philadelphia “Just give them a chance, obviously don’t shoot them dead”

No action has been taken against Maguire, however an investigation has taken place. The FBI Phildadelphia Twitter account released this statment :”The FBI takes all shooting incidents involving our agents or task force members very seriously. We are working jointly with the Phildelphia Police Department and the FBI inspection division to investigate the incident”
