An Ontario woman has been left with more than heartbreak after she says Windsor Police killed her "loving and friendly" dog, Chloe — and she has almost $4,000 dollars in vet bills she now has to pay.

Narcity spoke with Diane Scott, who said that she put her dog in the backyard when police came to the door — they were there to speak with a friend of her son who was at her home.

She didn't know, however, that Windsor Police officers were also in her backyard and that her dog had run at the officers when she heard a gunshot. She says police "had no business in [her] backyard."

Windsor Police confirmed that an officer had "discharged their firearm at [the] dog, fatally wounding it," in a press release, but did not provide any other information. The incident is currently under investigation. 

A GoFundMe has been set up to support Scott in paying the bill, which currently sits at $3,995 before cremation fees.
