A pitbull named Mason entered into a neighbor's yard and was brutally murdered. The neighbor, Rick Gerald, used a machete to gash open Mason's head. Gerald claimed that he had only seconds to react and using a machete on the dog was his only option. Poor Mason was not killed however; he managed to make it back home before experiencing a seizure. The family had to put Mason down. In the city of Cheifland, Rick Gerald's actions are legal. Please sign and help to change this law that supports animal cruelty.
