Correction/Retraction: Baltimore, not Boston

A typo that was published in a post on this blog and on several Puppycide Database Project social media accounts mistakenly listed Jeffrey Bolger and Thomas Schmidt as employees of the Boston Police Department at the time they killed a dog belonging to to Sarah Gossard. In reality, Bolger and Schmidt were employed by the Baltimore Police Department, not Boston.

Although the typo involved our blog, Twitter and Google+, the entry in our research database was not impacted by the mistake. Both our research database and the files listed on our site related to the incident list the correct police department.

We sincerely apologize to both the Boston Police Department and our readers for any confusion.
