EAST CONCORD, N.Y. (WKBW) - Megan Shimburski says her dog "Lady" was shot in the head by a Sheriff's Deputy for no reason.

The Sherriff's Office telling Eyewitness News today, the dog charged at the detective and he therefore, acted appropriately.

The Deputies were at the home looking fo Ryann Skiver, a suspect in a string of burglaries totaling more than $50,000.

Skiver is the father of one of Shimburski's children.

Skiver wasn't at the home that night, and now Shimburski is furious her dog was injured.
