Dogs Allegedly Shot Dead and Left in Woods Deserve Justice

Target: R.J. Larizza, Florida State Attorney of the 7th Judicial District

Goal: Give man who allegedly shot and killed dogs in front of minor harshest legal sentence.

William Petty allegedly shot and killed two dogs in front of a teenage boy and then callously left their bodies in the woods. He needs to receive the maximum prison sentence if he is found guilty of this horrific crime.

Petty reportedly drove the two animals and the boy out to the woods after arguing with his fiancé. Authorities stated that he shot one dog in the head before handing the revolver to the teenager and telling him to shoot the other animal. However, the boy claimed that Petty took the gun back after he shot at the ground and shot the other dog himself. Both dogs died of their injuries.

Petty was charged with two counts of felony animal cruelty, unlawfully disposing of the bodies, using a concealed weapon to commit a felony, and abusing a child. Sign this petition to demand that Petty receive maximum time behind bars if he is found guilty of committing these unthinkable acts.


Dear State Attorney Larizza,

Authorities recently arrested William Petty for allegedly shooting and killing two dogs and for forcing a teenage boy to watch the incident. It is important that he receive the strictest sentence possible if he is found guilty so that such an act will be less likely to happen again.

Reports state that Petty drove the boy and the animals out to the woods after having a heated argument with his fiancé. Petty allegedly shot one dog in the head and then demanded that the teenage boy also kill the other animal. Reports state that the teenager shot at the ground before Petty took the gun out of his hands and shot the other defenseless dog. He then allegedly left their bodies in the woods.

The dogs’ owner told police that her dogs were not sick and therefore did not need to be euthanized. While it is good news that Petty was brought up on multiple charges, we demand you suggest he receive the most stringent sentence possible to better ensure other animals will not be hurt or killed if he is found guilty of this thoughtless crime.

    WILLIAM PETTY is a disgusting, hateful ‘man’ and must be punished for his sadistic treatment of these two dogs, AND the inappropriate involvement of a teenage boy in the whole sordid mess!!!!! SIGNED & SHARED TO HELP PUNISH THIS A–HOLE!

  2. When the boy had the gun, he should’ve shot Petty and buried him in the woods.

  3. This HORRIBLE abuser needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent under the PACT ACT!!!

  4. This POS is a skidmark on humanity, if he can kill innocent animals he can most assuredly kill a human being and needs to be thrown UNDER the jail, Karma is coming for you.. RIP sweet furbabies.. I’m sorry your last moments were at the hands of subhuman slime…

  5. …And yet the teen’s mom was engaged to this POS… like she didn’t see what a horrible person he was?
    I’m tired of women – and men as well – who put their kids and pets at risk.
    As for WILLIAM PETTY, he should go to prison for animal cruelty.

  6. All scumbag animal abusers globally must have the mandatory death penalty performed and nothing less.
