Pet Dog Shot Dead With Pellet Gun Deserves Justice

Target: Christopher Francesconi, East Providence Police Department Chief
Goal: Devote more resources to finding person who killed dog with a shot to the head.

A Siberian Husky got loose from his family early one morning and returned home later that day with a fatal head wound. The Faria family’s adorable and loving pet dog was named Niko. As is sometimes the case with Siberian Huskies, Niko got loose one morning and went exploring the neighborhood on his own. The Farias never suspected that this act would be Niko’s last.

Later in the evening Niko dragged his body back to his family’s home. The Farias quickly realized something was very wrong. Upon inspection, the Farias noticed an open wound in Niko’s head. They rushed him to the veterinarian where it was discovered that someone had shot Niko with a pellet gun.

Despite the best attempts to save Niko, the wound was fatal, so the difficult choice to euthanize Niko was made.

“We can’t believe that someone would do something like this to an animal, a helpless animal that can’t talk back and can’t fight back, and certainly never would have been a harm to anything,” owner Taylor Faria said. “He was not an aggressive dog.”

Although police are investigating the incident, no leads have been announced and its unclear if sufficient resources are being dedicated to the case. It is essential that police devote the necessary time and resources to finding the person, or persons, who shot poor Niko.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Chief Francesconi,

A Siberian Husky got loose from his family early one morning and returned home later that day with a fatal head wound and the killer is still walking the streets.

The Faria family’s adorable and loving pet dog was named Niko. As is sometimes the case with Siberian Huskies, Niko got loose one morning and went exploring the neighborhood on his own. The Farias never suspected that this act would be Niko’s last.

Later in the evening Niko dragged his body back to his family’s home. The Farias quickly realized something was very wrong. Upon inspection, the Farias noticed an open wound in Niko’s head. They rushed him to the veterinarian where it was discovered that someone had shot Niko with a pellet gun.

Despite the best attempts to save Niko, the wound was fatal, so the difficult choice to euthanize Niko was made.

We understand that your department is investigating the crime. However, it is often the case that animal abuse incidents go unpunished due to insufficient resources. We ask that you please devote all resources necessary to finding the person, or persons, who shot poor Niko.

Sincerely,
Your Name Here

  1. Someone knows who did this, losers always brag about the really nasty things they do, so offer a reward and see how fast you find him. Then actually punish him and let others know this will not be tolerated any more.

    • Totally true, but appears the police do not care. What they don’t understand is when cops go through the trouble of finding the perpetrators and at least dragging them to court, making the responsible one now the Judge and Jury, the constituents of the community build confidence and trust in the police department. As it stands right now, people don’t trust the judicial system anymore and could use a little PR for the department. Find the dog killer, even if it is a minor, show they care about the law.

    I hope you find this SICK person. And make that BASTARD/BITCH pay the price👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
    “JUSTICE FOR NIKO”

  3. The vile, mentally deranged scumbag who killed sweet Niko must e put to death. A slow and agonising death is essential for this vile scumbag.

    • Patricia Lamonica says:

      THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT I HAVE BEEN SAYING EXACUTE ANY AND ALL ANIMAL ABUSERS AND SEE HOW FAST ANIMAL ABUSE WILL STOP!!!

  4. The authorities that did this should lose their jobs and they should have to pay a big fat fine and they should never be allowed to own an animal made a pedophile to be not around animals and never be allowed to be working in this type of profession again because apparently they can’t serve and protect their job is to seek and destroy

  5. Michelle Taylor says:

    Instigation of the death penalty and nothing less must be implemented to the evil cretin who killed this lovely dog.

  6. Maria Lavorato says:

    To the Farias …..I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful little Niko. I’m crying while typing this….

    To the authorities GET THIS SOB OF THE STREET! Anyone that knows anything should come forward. Please get justice for NIKO and MAXIMUM CHARGES ….MURDER 1ST DEGREE!
    EVERY POLICE FORCE SHOULD HAVE DEDICATED STAFF FOR ANIMAL CRUELTY. THERE IS NO EXCUSE TO NOT INVESTIGATE THIS CRIME TO THE FULL.

    I want the same suffering for the MONSTER who did this! I hope the Grimm Reaper comes for you!

  7. If that was my dog…..That person better move to another planet because I would track the POS down and his worst nightmare would come true. And you can take that to the bank.

  8. Wendy+Morrison says:

    Find this CRUEL, ABUSIVE, AND STUPID IDIOT AND SHOOT HIM/HER WITH A PELLET GUN UNTIL HE/SHE IS DEAD!!!

  9. Someone out there is a dangerous person, not just to animals. This person needs to pay for his/her crimes.

  10. Renata+Kuchinsky says:

    Find him – why is there a delay? This is vicious and dangerous monster walking free. No mercy

  11. Mary Kuie says:

    The EVIL-DOER must be caught, punished to the absolute fullest extent of the law, put behind bars. It would be satisfying if the punishment for the murderer equaled that which was done to this beautiful animal. Outrageous, infuriating, this evil deed of murder just fills my soul with the utmost livid rage. Begin the search by lifting all rocks.

  12. Authorities do nothing – next time it will be a kid.

    This is just a terrible shame that some lowly coward could do this to a lovely, innocent dog. Police could find who did this if they made a real effort. Offer a reward!!

  15. Nadine+brundage says:

    So sorry to hear this horrific, sad news and hope the sicko who shot this innocent dog rots in hell. This low life demented piece of shit is a danger to animals and society and it needs to be found.

  16. Death penalty for bastard/bitch killer. Justice for Niko!

  17. Jeanne C Bradbury says:

    The only thing to do when police can’t allocate resourxes to traxk down animal abusers is OFFER A REWARD. GO FUND ME is full of animal lovers who would be glad to contribute to finding this depraved mutant!!

  18. Gerald George Ryan says:

    SOMEBODY KNOWS WHO THE SLIME IS WHO SHOT THIS HUSKY!! OFFER A REWARD!!
