From Hand4Paws: On June 18th Brent Parker, the man who shot and killed his neighbors 13-year-old Labrador retriever Thai, was found guilty on a cruelty against companion animals charge and for pointing and discharging a weapon. The judge sentenced Parker to 45 days in jail. Thank you so much for signing the petition. While many people who signed did not actually know Thai, hearing what happened to her broke our hearts. Nothing can bring back beloved pets like Thai that are brutally killed, but speaking out against animal cruelty and reporting it can help send the message that harming animals will not be tolerated.

Willoughby, Ohio: In November, an Ohio family received the saddest possible news about Thai, their pet dog. When Thai did not return after being let outside, the family searched for her in the dark. But it wasn’t until the next morning that the senior black Labrador retriever was found. Thai had been shot 3 times and killed. Three slugs from a .22 caliber Ruger were found at the scene.

A neighbor, 26 year-old Brent S. Parker, was arrested and charged with killing an animal, a misdemeanor of the first degree, and with discharging a firearm, a misdemeanor of the fourth degree. Parkers next court date is set for 9:00 a.m. on December 28, 2011 at the Willoughby Municipal Court.

Please show your support of the family that lost their dog by signing this petition. Thai would have turned 14 years old this month. She posed a threat to no one. And no one should be allowed to ruthlessly kill a neighbors dog.

This petition respectfully requests that Brent S. Parker, the man that allegedly shot and killed his neighbors dog, be given the maximum sentence allowable under law.
