No, Rep. Lauren Boebert Says She Didn’t Shoot Neighbor’s Dog

  • Firebrand Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) denied claims that she shot and killed a neighbor’s dog after the canine attacked the congresswoman’s goats on her property.
  • Boebert, a staunch supporter of gun rights, came under scrutiny after a woman named Yaritza Mendoza claimed in a Facebook post that the Colorado Republican had shot and killed her husky “with the ‘power’ of your gun,” according to the Independent. Boebert responded to those claims in a tweet on Monday, noting she has “never” shot a dog before.
