Justice for Dog Allegedly Killed by Delivery Truck Driver

Target: Valerie Webb, City Attorney of White house, Tennessee

Goal: Seek maximum punishment and license revocation of delivery truck driver if guilty of killing a harmless dog.

A dog was killed after someone allegedly kicked him and broke his neck. Milo, a 6-year-old Schnauzer mix who was nicknamed the Tennessee Biker dog, was known by the community as the unofficial mascot for his owner’s business, Value Cargo Vans. The owner, Joe Burris, says Milo snuck out while he was outside talking with the driver of the delivery truck. Burris later got a phone call from police saying that his dog had been killed. Burris believes that the driver of a delivery truck is responsible for Milo’s tragic death.

The owner of the delivery company reportedly excused the driver’s behavior, claiming that the small dog charged him, so the driver “kicked him a couple of times, then ran him over.” Since Milo didn’t have any marks, blood or scars, Burris says he’s confident the dog wasn’t run over.

While Mr. Burris awaits the necropsy results for the dog who he refers to as his best friend, the local police say they’ll be investigating. This small dog was loved by an entire community, including the employees and customers at his owner’s business. It seems highly unlikely that Milo ever posed a threat to the driver, yet the poor dog was killed anyway. Please sign this petition to demand that the driver be punished to the maximum extent and fired from working as a delivery truck driver, if guilty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms Webb,

A dog was reportedly killed by a delivery truck driver. The owner of the truck driving company claims that the dog charged their employee, who then “kicked it a couple of times,” then ran it over. The Schnauzer had no marks, blood, or scars, according to the owner, who believes the driver kicked him and broke his neck.

Delivery drivers are in a position of trust. If this driver killed a dog that posed no threat to him, then he has no business working in a field where people’s pets are vulnerable. We urge you to make sure that this driver is punished to the maximum extent and his license revoked, if guilty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  4. First this man needs to pay for what he did to a defenseless animal like go to jail for a long time and secondly he needs to lose his job.

  5. Payback ie required to be enacted when least expected to this dog murdering POS.OH YES!!!!!!!! An eye for an eye.

  6. This sadistic delivery truck driver needs to go! He needs to be fired and severely punished for animal cruelty.

    This little dog was NO threat to the delivery truck driver–who killed Milo, just because he wanted to.

    The little schnauzer was a community favorite, beloved by his caretaker. He was friend and family. DO NOT EXCUSE MILO’S KILLER!

    This little dog was NO threat to the delivery truck driver–who killed Milo, just because he wanted to.
