Target: William Nettles, South Carolina U.S. Attorney
Goal: Prosecute individual(s) responsible for shooting 6-week-old puppy with BB gun.
A six-week-old puppy shot with BB pellets was found by an alert utility worker. The worker told police that he saw about 20 children playing with the puppy when he stepped away for a few minutes and came back to find the puppy bleeding heavily. According to the police report, the children told officers that someone who stays at the apartment complex shot the dog.
Veterinarians at Ebenezer Animal hospital say they’ve named the puppy Brody and expect him to pull through. X-rays showed 18 BBs lodged in Brody’s skin and muscle. The vet states that Brody is too young to undergo anesthesia to have the pellets surgically removed, but as no vital organs were compromised, it’s likely Brody’s wounds will heal around the BBs without further incident.
Demand the perpetrators of this cruel act are punished to the fullest extent possible.
Dear Attorney Nettles,
Rock Hill police are investigating the shooting of a 6-week-old puppy. The puppy, now called Brody, was spotted by an alert utility worker who called police when he noticed the dog was bleeding heavily. The children seen playing with Brody told police that someone who stays at the apartment building shot the dog, but a suspect has yet to be identified.
Although Brody is expected to make a full recovery, such heinous behavior must not be permitted. We demand the person or people involved with this crime are punished to the fullest extend possible.
[Your Name Here]
