Prosecute Man Who Allegedly Slaughtered and Burned Dogs for Trespassing

Target: Jasper Country Prosecuting Attorney Christine M. Haskell

Goal: Charge man who allegedly shot three dogs and burned their bodies because they were outside of his property fence.

A woman’s dogs were reportedly shot to death and their bodies burned up by a man who spotted them outside of his property fence and decided to kill them instead of driving them off or calling animal control. According to the accused, Randy Wall, he had to shoot the dogs because they were a threat to the deer he breeds on his property. He says that he saw them trying to get under his fence and drove them away, but when they came back, he shot all three of them as a “last resort.”

According to police, Wall’s conduct was within the law on killing domestic animals, which states that it’s legal as long as the person who killed the animals “reasonably believes” it was necessary to “protect the property of the accused person from destruction or substantial damage.” Police are apparently interpreting this vague language to side with Wall even though the dogs weren’t even technically on his property.

The dogs’ owner, Dana Drew, lives in a subdivision and says that her dogs would have been afraid of the deer since they would have never seen such an animal before. It seems unlikely that the dogs would have been able to hurt the deer, especially from outside the fence. It also seems suspect that Wall did not try to take additional action to avoid having to shoot the dogs such as calling animal control to round up what he correctly identified as domesticated dogs that clearly belonged to somebody.

Furthermore, Wall’s neighbors allege that he got on a four-wheeler and chased the dogs down for 20 minutes, firing dozens of shots at them as they fled before he killed the last dog. This sounds more like a brutal hunt than an attempt to protect one’s property.

Thanks to the fact that Wall burned the bodies for some unstated reason, Drew can’t even have a proper burial for her deceased companions. Because police decided not to investigate, she may never find justice if we don’t speak up for her and for Storm, Lola, and Buster. Sign this petition to demand that the incident be investigated and that Randy Wall be changed for the unnecessary slaughter of these dogs.


Dear Ms. Haskell,

Three dogs were recently shot and killed and their bodies burned by Demotte resident Randy Wall. Wall claims that they were threatening the deer he raises on his property yet admits that he only tried to drive them off once before killing them and that they had not yet breached his property fence.

According to his neighbors, Wall spent 20 minutes on a four-wheeler hunting the dogs down. This seems like a completely unnecessary action to protect animals that are quite a bit larger than most dogs. He didn’t even call animal control for help.

The details of this case do not add up. Now, a woman has to grieve her companion animals without justice because the police declined to even investigate. This kind of deadly cruelty cannot be allowed to go unpunished. We demand that you look into the case and charge Randy Wall in the death of Storm, Lola, and Buster.

  1. This sadistic, pervert should be arrested and charged with FELONY animal cruelty! No matter how the police are interpreting the “law”, it doesn’t seem feasible that his deer were seriously threatened by dogs OUTSIDE HIS FENCE. Either the police are too lazy to investigate, are so corrupt they can be bribed not to bother or are just plain stupid (ignorance can be educated, STUPID is forever!) I would think the owner of the dogs has rights too and having her dogs hunted down off and murdered off his pervert’s property would constitute a crime. Glad I don’t live in this county!

  2. Sue him for financial restitution etc.

  3. Dianna mitchner says:

    I will bet this man has many confrontations with everyone and everything… Obviously he’s not able to solve small problems reasonably and his reactions are way over the top for the situation. The guardian of these dogs needs to keep them safe, but what nut chases and shoots down three dogs and then burns them…sick mentally unstable person. A closer look at him and what’s going on at that property may bring answers.

  4. Cynthia Mattera says:

    This evil man was clearly interested in killing these poor dogs, who were running for their lives! Then turns around and burns their bodies? What is that???? Please pursue an arrest for this man. He needs to be held accountable for murdering 3 innocent dogs. I am so sorry for your loss:(

  5. Deer and dogs actually play together all the time. This guy is an idiot if he chased down the dogs to kill them. What happens if your dog gets out accidentally ? Instead of someone trying to capture and return them they chase them down and shoot the dogs ? We need compassion in this world for all life or we will be responsible for ending our own planet. We are supposed to be the responsible species.

  6. So thank u patrick mcmahon for letting the world know what a piece of shit dribble you are. I certainly hope that putting your name w a dog hater comment has no detrimental effects on your life. Ha. Suck a dick bitch. I hope u and every animal abuser on this site gets justice the old fashioned way. You little pussy bitch.

  7. How about if this guy’s imbecile kids wander onto my land? Can I chase them down and shoot them for damaging my property?

  8. Prosecute him? Please. Hows about some suicidal person who cannot be dissuaded just does the world a favor and gets rid of this bitch man before u off yourself? Ditto for every sick pc of shit on this website.

  9. Jerry Jackson says:

    The man should be held accountable for killing the dogs but the real criminal is the irresponsible dog owner who created the situation and should also be held accountable. There are leash laws for a reason and I have no pity for the owner, just her poor dogs.

  10. First of all, I’m sorry for your loss. RIP all your babies. Now, I would get a top notch attorney. I would contact ALDF, HSUS, BEST FRIENDS any large animal agency with a top notch attorney team to fight this. This monster not only killed your babies BUT HE ALSO BURNED THEM WHY?? BECAUSE HE KNEW THAT HE DID WRONG AND WANTED TO COVER HIS TRACKS AFTER HE CHASED THEM DOWN AND MURDERED THEM ALL. HE IS A MONSTER AND MUST BE TREATED AS SUCH. FINE HIM, JAIL HIM,BAN HIM FROM HAVING OR BEING AROUND ANIMALS ,GET HIM ANGER MANAGEMENT AND GET HIM PSYCHIATRIC HELP AS HE IS SICK!!!!! GOOD LUCK OWNERS TO GET THE JUSTICE THAT YOUR BABIES DESERVE. OMG, we live in such a crazy,evil and insane world and this shows that.

  11. Catherine Dugan says:

    Prosecute this inhumane person! He did a cruel and mean thing and deserves jail time! The police need to investigate this matter and press charges against Well! For Storm Lola and Buster!

  12. I would pay to watch this mans execution. Sell tickets and fry the bitch. Come on that means a profit.

  13. Renee Hocevar says:

    This man is sick and cruel. Is it even legal for him to breed deer on his property? I surely doubt that…

  14. MONSTER is what describes this guy who chased, shot and then burned this dogs. I just hope and pray that the dogs were actually dead when he lite them on fire. (I WOULD HAVE THIS THOROUGHLY CHECKED OUT AND IF HE DID HE MUST BE IN JAIL) WHAT TN THE WORLD IS THE MATTER WITH OUR WORLD WHEN SOMEONE DOES THIS TO YOUR BELOVED PETS??

  15. Cynthia Gannon says:

    It’s encouraging to see the outrage from people of a compassionate,normal disposition. Whether the dogs were or were not on his property, his deer were not affected. His reactions toward the dogs were rather enthusiastic to exact revenge. Maybe “roid” rage and good old sadism were the source. They are only dogs, running loose,not Isis on the attack. I would love for these macho sadists to sign up and fight the enemy. They are only good for hog wrestling, squirrel hunting, and other such useless and cruel activities. If the residents of Indiana want justice then they need to get these laws changed. It’s their state and they own it. Otherwise nothing will EVER change.

  16. “So many people insist they are against animal abuse, cruelty, suffering and the inhumane treatment of animals, yet they don’t understand they are actively engaging in and supporting egregious suffering, abuse, cruelty and inhumane treatment when they eat animals and their ‘by-products.’ If you are against cruelty, suffering and inhumane treatment, then you go vegan. It’s just that simple.” – Sarah Kiser

  17. People like this must be prosecuted!!!
