Please sign and share this petition everywhere possible to demand that this man in Florida gets a strict punishment for shooting his neighbor’s dog, taking it away while injured and placing the animal near a dumpster to die. But the time officers discovered the dog, it was deceased.
A Mr. Davis of South Florida fatally shot his neighbor’s pit bull for no apparent reason other than the fact that he wanted to protect his young dog. The animal never gave Mr. Davis reason to believe the dog was harmful other than the reputation of its breed. The dog was in its own fenced-in yard when the man fired two shots at the animal on a Saturday evening.
The next day, the shooting was reported to authorities. Mr. Davis told the officers of the Broward Sheriff’s Office that he shot the dog to protect his daughter but never bothered to call for medical assistance or law enforcement. Instead, he loaded the injured dog into a vehicle and drove about a half-mile away from the home and left it near a trash bin. Authorities believe the dog was still alive when dumped but eventually died from its injuries.
This man is being charged for animal cruelty and unlawful use of a firearm. We need to demand the strictest punishment possible as allowed by law. This guy took the law in his own hands, for no apparent reason. There was no documentation that the dog was a threat or harmful to society, the neighborhood or his own child but because of its breed, he killed a precious pet and dumped it to die! And it did!!

Dania Beach, Florida Judicial System – Mr. Davis shot and killed his neighbor’s dog because it is a pit bull breed that he felt may harm his daughter. The dog was in its own secure yard when he shot it and no mention was made that the dog was ever a threat other than the undue reputation most of these animals get because of irresponsible pet owners. He had no right to kill someone’s pet and then dump it in the trash to let it suffer and die! Please ensure that this guy receives the maximum penalty possible for the animal abuse and cruelty, along with abandonment by tossing it in the trash to die! This along with the use of a firearm should guarantee he is held accountable to the full extent of the law for such a tragic act on his part!!
