Help us get justice for Skye

We need your help to get NEWS coverage! A friend of a friends beloved family dog had false claims against it and a police officer from St. Francois Police Dept. in MO,  decided to use drastic measures by first spraying  the whole can of mace on Skye's face leaving it to burn the skin off  then shoot him right between his nostrils at point blank range. This was on the owners property ! Skye  is holding on for dear life we all are praying for this sweethearts recovery and to get this cop what he deserves or at least to change the measures police officers take as to containing animals, for example how about a stun gun not a real gun that kills! 

 

I will do a quick summary. We live out on a country kind of road.  There are some neighborhood dogs that need nutriton and we do our best to feed them as a matter of fact they rush into our house before we can get the door open to come over to eat and Skye lets the neighborhood eat first everytime. Well at nights you can hear the dogs pack up...they are starving. They mostly congregate in my yard. I've seen the other animals drag cats into my yard dead. Everything is in my yard. My dog is a house dog let out to play every now and then. The other neighbors dog came up dead and was found in my yard about a year ago, he came to my work threatening me because Skye was the only thing big enough to take his dog down and kill it. Nevermind what a pack of hungry dogs can do....so he's blamed Skye cause he was a pit bull more or less. Skye is a awesome loving dog and did NOT kill his dog! He's been after him and the other day I came home and had lunch with my son and took him to his grandma's before i left i let Skye out to go to the bathroom and left him out because my husband works night and I knew he'd be up soon. He was awake soon...to a dog in shrill growling and a gunshot!

Well I know more got back to work and the phone was ringing and it was my husband calling screaming at me to bring our car back home immediately a cop shot Skye in our yard. So I get home to the pic everyone has seen a dog dripping in blood he was rushed to the vet and the vets office had to clear out due to the excessive mace. Then shot at point blank right between the nostrils. The X-ray is on my page. It blew out four teeth and he lost five more yesterday. The neighbor was at the end of the yard watching all of it go down. He is an evil evil man, but by no means did th eofficer need to shoot my dog either so PLEASE help us get some Justice for Skye!

 

Thank You,

      This is important for a lot of reasons to me. Mainly, I love animals and KNOW it is not the breed but how ANY dog is raised. I have a GSD and they still get a bad rap of being mean, so not true is socialized and raised properly, just like your baby. You sound like me, feed any and all starving animals, again because of HUMANS not spay, neutering, feeding, and just taking care of their own animals, if it were their pet/family they would not be roaming and starving to begin with, correct. The next reason, the cop needs fired, he sucks in my opinion. It is not the first time an "officer of the law" breaks laws and gets away with it. How inhumane, I am so sorry for your sweet baby and hope he recovers. I hope you get justice from this cop which I am sure like a lot of them, abuse their power.

      I am against animal abuse of any kind. What is wrong with people have they no compassion on a living animal that has done no wrong. Animal Abuse has to stop.

      People need to stop blaming American Pit Bull terriers for everything bad that happens. This was totally UNCALLED FOR! This is animal cruelty. What happened to contacting the dog owners and taking LEGAL steps to resolve this before torturing this poor dog?? This police officer should be fired.

      This is inexcusable cruelty to an animal, and to think it was perpetrated by someone whose job is to uphold the law not break it!

      BECAUSE I LOVE ANIMALS AND THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO LIVE A WONDERFUL LIFE WITHOUT ANY ABUSE,AND IF THIS WAS DONE BY A COP HE SHOULD BE FIRED,IF HE DID THIS TO A POOR ANIMAL WHAT WILL HE DO TO A HUMAN BEING. HE IS AN OFFICER OF THE LAW AND IS TO BE HELD AT A HIGHER STANDARD OF THE LAW. HE IS NOT A COP HE IS A SCUMBAG MONSTER!!!!
