Police respond after Ceres man's threat to kill dog goes viral

A Ceres man learned the effectiveness of social media quickly after his threat to shoot his dog went viral and resulted in police officers on his doorstep. That was one of three animal-related calls Ceres police handled Thursday morning, according to a news release from the department. The others involved a puppy abandoned with curdled milk and a dog owner who took his pets out of the Stanislaus County animal shelter without paying impound fees.
