A Dallas police officer accused of killing a cat in Pleasant Grove last month was fired from the department last week.
Officer Jesse Coates, who was a trainee was placed on administrative leave on August 28, pending the outcome of an internal affairs investigation.
Apparently on August 21 Coates and some other officers responded to a disturbance call around 12:45am on the 9900 block of Bluffcreek Dr.
Upon arrival Coates saw a cat in distress and killed it.
It is unknown why the cat was in distress and officers didn’t release any other details.
Coates was hired in January 2020.
