When Suzzana Day of Islington, London, let her dog Lola out to go to the bathroom in their garden, she had no idea it would be the last time she saw her chihuahua alive. After a while, when she noticed Lola still hadn't returned, she went to look for her, only to find her lying dead in a pool of her own blood.
There, in the same garden where her children play, someone had mercilessly killed her dog. An X-ray would later reveal that Lola had been shot with an air rifle, as the pellet could be easily seen, lodged in her brain.
Lola's story, unfortunately, isn't unique. According to the Express, the RSPCA received more than 650 calls regarding animals being targeted by people using air weapons just last year.
Cases like Lola's should be taken seriously. Her killer should be caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. That's because people who are capable of inflicting this kind of violence against animals often turn their violence to humans as well.
Help demand justice for Lola and the Day family. Sign the petition and demand that London police continue their search for Lola's killer.
