Seek the highest penalty for man who beat neighbor’s golden retriever with a hatchet.


Ricky Lee Knowles lured his neighbor’s dog and proceeded to mercilessly beat him until neighbors called police.  Knowles trapped Kona, the golden retriever, tied him to a pole, and beat him with a hatchet, causing brain damage and extensive fractures on his head. Knowles pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges but avoided a felony charge that would have indicated that this man is a vicious threat to the public.
