Punish Men Who Reportedly Conspired to Shoot and Kill Innocent Dog

Target: P. David Soares, District Attorney for Albany County, New York

Goal: Punish the men who allegedly conspired to shoot a dog to death.

A dog was reportedly shot to death by a recruited gunman in a disturbing case of aggravated animal cruelty and conspiracy. The dog’s owner allegedly requested the service after his pet became aggressive with his girlfriend. Now, this poor animal has died and the men apparently behind this troubling plot await prosecution.

Bethlehem police responded to Mark T. Morby’s home after they received reports of a dog being shot. An investigation uncovered suspicions that Morby had asked his associate, identified as Gerald B. Graff, to kill his dog following the animal’s aggressive actions. Graff seemingly agreed to the request and this innocent animal endured a gunshot wound shortly thereafter.

The dog was transported to Mohawk Hudson Humane Society and later died. Graff and Morby have been charged with aggravated cruelty to animals and conspiracy and criminal facilitation. Graff has also been charged with reckless endangerment and illegal discharging of a firearm. Sign below and demand that these men face the harshest legal sentence, if found guilty of this horrific crime.


Dear District Attorney Soares,

Two Albany County residents have been charged with aggravated animal cruelty, a felony, and conspiracy and criminal facilitation after they allegedly plotted to kill an innocent dog. The animal, belonging to Mark T. Morby, died of a gunshot wound allegedly inflicted by Gerald B. Graff following a deadly plan seemingly concocted by the two. This terrible fate was apparently a punishment after Morby felt that his dog had been aggressive towards his girlfriend.

All dogs, even aggressive ones, deserve humane treatment at the very least. Morby’s alleged actions are despicable and they suggest that he is a danger to other animals. Graff’s apparent willingness to shoot an innocent pet is all the more worrisome. I demand that you prosecute this case and seek the harshest penalty possible for all found guilty.

  1. Dogs can sense when there is a reason for them to appear aggressive. Mark T. Morby & Gerald B. Graff need the harshest penalty possible for animal cruelty. Never to be allowed to own or be near any kind of animal again!!! We do not need any more animal killers in this world.

  2. Linda Hilty-Tuttle says:

    These two grown MORONS and COWARDS’ actions are worse than anything the poor dog could have ever done! With an owner like MARK T. MORBY, no wonder the dog was aggressive – some people don’t even know how to behave around an animal and, therefore, should never have one!!!

  3. Frank Williams says:

    Lowlife scumbags need more than just simple prosecution! The same should be done to them!

  4. This is absolutely horrible that this innocent baby had to die, she died because she loved someone and thought they needed protection! Please make these two so called humans pay for what they did! Also, please don’t let either on of them have another animal!

  5. Gloria Navan says:

    These are dangerous men. Put them away for a long time.

  6. Animal abusers globally must have the mandatory death penalty implemented and nothing less. A slow and agonising death for these scumbags is essential.
