Justice for Dog Reportedly Shot with Crossbow

Target: Jay Scott, State’s Attorney for Macon County, Illinois

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the two men who allegedly shot a dog with a crossbow.

A dog suffered serious injuries after it was reportedly shot with a crossbow. The suspects reportedly shot at the dog multiple times with intent to harm. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

“One individual that the mini crossbow belonged to shot at the dog and missed. He then gave the crossbow to his friend and said ‘Why don’t you do it? I know you won’t miss’ and he shot the dog,” stated Lieutenant Antonio Brown of the Macon County Sheriff’s Office. His deputies responded to the call, where they found the Corgi mix bleeding with an arrow sticking out if its shoulder.

Dalton Zindars and Dakota Leddy-Wilber were charged with aggravated animal cruelty and obstruction of justice. As a condition of their bond, they will not be allowed to be the primary caretaker for any animal. The dog is recovering. Sign below and demand that Zindars and Leddy-Wilber receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.


Dear State’s Attorney Scott,

A dog suffered tremendously after it was reportedly shot with a crossbow. The dog survived, but had to have more than $3,000 worth of surgery. We demand that this dog receive justice.

When the Macon County Sheriff’s deputies found the dog, it had an arrow sticking out of its shoulder. Per police, the suspects lived in the same neighborhood as the dog and deliberately shot the dog. The suspects initially fled the scene, but were caught thanks to CrimeStoppers and the Macon County Sheriff’s Office.

This horrific crime cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

  1. If these two animals do not receive appropriate punishment, as opposed to the usual slap on the wrist, then the next arrow will be through a human. They deserve the maximum allowable for this very deliberate act of cruelty and abuse.

  2. The morons that beleaguered and shot this gorgeous, tiny and defenceless little creature deserve the full weight of the law coming down on their own shoulders. Do those who responded to this call and took the little corgi-cross for emergency treatment and the little dog itself the justice and dignity they deserve and make sure that they pay with a punishment that really fits the crime. This indiscriminate abuse toward the voiceless, be it animal or child (so often both, by such sadistic perpetrators) simply has to stop for a better world to begin – and that can only happen through measures specifically designed and implemented to deter. Thank you for your time. R.A.
