Dog Testifies In French Murder Case! They Called The Dog To The Stand. Sit. Stay. Good Boy!

A dog was actually called to the witness stand in a French murder trial! That's so nuts!

In the French city of Tours, a pretty unorthodox thing went down in court.

A dog was called to the witness stand.

Like, a canine. A pooch. A pupster. A literal dog participated in a MURDER TRIAL.

Not a dog poo on the neighbor's yard civil court case, but an actual murder trial.

The judge ordered a suspect to threaten the dog with a bat to gauge the dog's reaction, hopefully to see if the suspect did in fact kill the dog's owner.

The nine-year-old dog, Tango, was approached with the bat, then the same was done with another dog of the same breed and age, Norman.

The suspect's lawyer said:

"So if Tango lifted his right paw, moved his mouth or his tail, is he recognizing my client or not? I find it very troubling for the French legal system. If a judge ignores the demands of reason and surrounds himself with experts who are unreasonable, well the system becomes very dangerous."

The lawyer was pretty much right. The experiment was a failure.

Both dogs were dismissed.

Until we can read a dog's mind or teach them to speak English, we're pretty sure dogs shouldn't be called to the stand.

    "Until we can read a dog's mind or teach them to speak English, we're pretty sure dogs shouldn't be called to the stand."

    Shouldn't the dogs have to speak French in a court in Tours?
