Leashed Dog Reportedly Shot by Neighborhood Teens Deserves Justice

Target: Robert Wilters, Baldwin County District Attorney, Alabama

Goal: Seek the harshest possible punishment for teens accused of shooting a dog using a stolen shotgun.

Three teens reportedly approached a woman walking her two dogs in her yard and without explanation opened fire on one of her pets using a stolen shotgun. The injured dog, named Major, died shortly afterward. This is an unbelievable and shocking act of cruelty, and this dog deserves justice.

The reasons behind the dog’s alleged shooting are not known at this time, although it is known that the three boys stole the weapon used from a home, along with a rifle. The woman had questioned the boys when she had seen them wandering the area with the weapon, before she claimed that they opened fire. Both of the owner’s dogs were leashed at the time and standing close to her, so it is remarkable that only the one dog was injured, considering the proximity of the shotgun blast.

All three teens now face animal cruelty charges, but due to their ages they may not be tried as adults and may receive a more lenient sentence. Given the cold and heartless behavior they allegedly demonstrated, we must demand that they be given the harshest possible penalty and that these boys be given psychiatric evaluations, if found guilty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Wilters,

A dog was allegedly shot and killed in front of his owner in a shocking case of animal cruelty. According to the dog’s owner, she was approached by three teens, one of whom was carrying a stolen shotgun. Without explanation, the oldest teen reportedly opened fire, fatally wounding the dog. The dog’s owner and another animal were standing nearby, and it is fortunate that they were not wounded as well.

This is a shocking act of cruelty that must be taken seriously. Given the heartless nature of this crime, we demand that you seek the most severe penalty under law in spite of the ages of the suspects, if they are found guilty. We also ask that they be given appropriate mental health screenings and treatment to prevent future acts of violence against animals or people.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Here you have your ‘NEXT SERIAL KILLERS IN TRAINING.” World Research states monsters like this start with abuse, torture and murder of animals and then move on to humans. Children first as like animals they cannot fight back. Check out the background of most notorious serial killers.
    We all know the law will do nothing to punish or deter these crimes.
    Find the bastard and deal with him.
    Perpetrator when you least expect it you will get yours. When you think it is all over it isn’t. You have a target on your back and Karma is coming to you in the dark.
    Satan is coming where you will burn in a sea of fire, receive no mercy and your pain will be constant.
