PETA France’s Isabelle Goetz released the following statement in response to this morning’s report that police dog Diesel, a 7-year-old Belgian Malinois, was killed by a suicide bomber in Paris:
Diesel claimed no religion, posed no threat and owned no weapons – and yet she paid with her life to ensure the safety of the French nation. Today, PETA and our supporters around the world commemorate her for her bravery in standing up to those who have caused so much carnage and suffering. May she and the other innocent individuals caught in this violence rest in peace.
