Praise Officers for Saving Dog Tied to Railroad Tracks


Target: Senior Sergeant R. Mills

Goal: Thank Sergeant Mills and his squad for rescuing Cabela from her abusive owners.

Two teenage boys shot their dog several times and then tied her to railroad tracks. She was purchased as a puppy with the intent of forcing her to fight other dogs, but when her temperament proved to be sweet, they tried to kill her. Instead, Senior Sergeant Mills and his squad rescued this poor dog from her fate. Please sign this petition and thank the police officers involved in saving the dog.

Hollinger shot Cabela in her shoulder. Later Cabela tried to escape and return to her previous owner, but the boys found her. They tied her to the train tracks and then shot her several times. An X-ray showed the poor dog with a severe fracture in one of her legs. Cabela was found on the railroad tracks by Senior Sergeant R. Mills and his squad. A picture on Facebook shows the sergeant with Cabela muzzled and covered in her own blood.

Her original owners got Cabela for dog fighting. When she didn’t perform to her owners’ expectations, they hired Callaway and Hollinger to shoot Cabela. The two teenagers plus the original owners were arrested. All are expected to be tried as adults in the court of law. Fortunately, Cabela is recovering, and many have sent donations and wishes for her fast recovery.

Her rescue wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for Senior Sergeant R. Mills and his squad. Please sign this petition and thank those that were involved in saving this dog’s life.


Dear Senior Sergeant R. Mills,

Recently, your police department rescued Cabela, an injured and scared dog who was left to die on railroad tracks. The story of her rescue and the subsequent arrests have resulted in an outpouring of well-wishers and donations. This dog was sold to her previous owners to be used in dog fighting, and it saddens me that any human being would take pleasure or enjoyment from an animal suffering.

I am writing this letter to thank you and your department for rescuing Cabela. It is amazing that she has not died from her injuries, and I hope that she will swiftly recover. I am sure that there are many people out there who are willing to adopt this sweet and gentle girl.

  1. Thank goodness Sergeant Mills was at the right place at right time to save this pour little tortured dog. And all because it had a sweet temperament. These boys need to be punished to the full extent of the law, make an example of them that this is what happens to people that treat animals so horrifically.

  2. If I were those boys’ parent, they’d be unceremoniously disowned, and I’D be the first one to insist they got the maximum sentence possible. No child of mine would EVER be allowed to get away with such vile behaviour OR thought and not suffer MASSIVE consequences.

  3. Kathy Williams says:

    To exercise compassion and mercy is the greatest strength of all… THANK YOU! The world would be a better place if there were more people like these officers.

  4. cathleen lambert says:

    Great policemen and great police work at catching these evil people!

  5. Most people on this planet have kindness engraved in their heart. But it takes great courage for them to recognize and live in the heart. Thank you, Sergeant Mills, for your courage and for showing us how to live in the heart. There is a special place in Heaven for you!

  6. Well done Sergeant Mills. Now will someone please tie these evil sick people to the railway tracks.
