Imagine if your family pet was killed, now imagine that such was done by a local animal control officer. It's happening to us in our own towns. On March 11 2013 in the early morning, two German Shepherds, Egon and Fritz, escaped from their yard.

When Deb and Darrin Hatfield noticed they immediately notified law enforcement and began searching for them...not knowing or even expecting the dangers their beloved pets faced.

It was Later that day that Animal Control Officer Chuck Stubbs notified the Hatfields that two dogs matching their pets' descriptions had attacked and killed a cat and as any responsible pet owner would do the Hatfields contacted the cat's owners and paid their veterinarian bills before continuing the search.

Scouring the city all week long... Each day asking Animal Control Officer Chuck Stubbs whether he had any news of the dogs' whereabouts, the family was lied to... each time, the officer told them he knew nothing.

On that Saturday it all came to light, Animal Control Officer Chuck Stubbs had shot, killed and already buried the dogs in a shallow grave earlier in the week. No attempt was ever made to contact the Hatfields after the dogs were shot.

The reality is, they are likely not the only family who has lost a pet family member at the hands of untrained, poorly trained and as this time shows uncaring deceitful officers.

It has to stop.

We the people of Berryville and it's entire surrounding area demand change and the immediate termination of Animal Control Officer Chuck Stubbs.

We seek required mandatory on-site animal behavior/encounter training and continuing education training for all local Animal Control Officers.

For this family and all the other pets who have been killed, please join us in demanding change.

      This man is a disgrace to animal control officers. An animal control officer should not be killing animals as a way of "controlling" them. Get rid of this idiot and get someone capable of carrying out the duties of an animal control officer.

      I'd like to know what's up with Berryville that this behavior is acceptable of a city or county employee. Why on earth does there even need to be a petition. The control worker knew he was in the wrong; evident when he hid the shootings and then the carcasses. Is Berryville a victim of nepotism?
