This afternoon from 4 to 6 PM a protest will be held in front of the Fort Lauderdale Police Department. The protest is being organized by Amanda Mercer, whose dog, Sylas, was killed just a few feet a way from Mercer's infant daughter by a cop who Fort Lauderdale police officials have refused to identify.

Volunteers from Puppycide Database Project will be on the scene to live-blog the day's events, take photos and speak with demonstrators (and police, if they respond to our questions). Stay tuned to our Twitter feed and Facebook account for live updates. A comprehensive article reviewing the day's events should be published this evening or tomorrow.
