March 2011: Boy, 12 year old cancer ridden dog was shot in his own driveway and suffered for 2 hours. The neighbor accused the dog of killing his sheep...a dog that was too old to even run.

Neighbor received $50 fine for vandalism and criminal mischief which he neglected to pay. He plead not guilty and had a trial date for September 29th in Hamilton, Texas and lost, thankfully. This is still not justice for Boy and Zeak though. That day after court, Mr. Klatt threw a bunch of papers of my postings about this in my driveway and a cardboard sign with 'You'll need this for the next time one is killed' written on it. I called the police and they did try to issue a warrant for stalking charges but for some reason the judge would not sign the warrant. They were going to try to file charges for harassment instead but never followed trough with it. I'm going to call the Sheriff this week and find out why they were never pursued.

September 2011: Zeak was killed on neighbor's property (he ran over him with his truck) and strung to the fence by the street for the children to see including my two young children who have nightmares due to this horrific act. He also strung up a dead sheep (which was already decaying) next to the still warm, limp Zeak claiming he killed the dog because the dog killed his sheep. He posted several provoking signs between the 2 dead animals harassing my family and myself.

A deputy was called and didn't do anything. He failed to compare the decaying sheep to the decaying process of the dog, nor did he notice the lack of any evidence such as no blood around Zeak's face, to indicate that the dog had attacked anything. Look close at the picture. All you will see if FRESH blood still dripping from Zeak's nose.

Please help me in getting justice for my dogs and to try and get him prosecuted under the law  42.092. sections 2 & 3, section 8 b and 1 & 2, 6 and section e 1. Or even ask that the law be changed. The way the law is written now is 'it is a defense to the prosecution under subsection (b) (2) or (6) that: the animal was discovered on the person's property in the act of or after injuring or killing the persons livestock animal or damaging the persons crops and that person killed or injured the animal at the time of this discovery. 

I also have a chipin page if you would like to donate for filing civil suits against the man that did this and for attorney fees. Please go to: http://safety4mykids.chipin.com/justice-for-boy-and-zeak

Thank you from the bottom of Boy's, Zeak's and my heart!

Thank you so much in advance for your support! Please feel free to email me at peace1013peace@hotmail.com

      Animals are living things that dont deserve to be tortured. It is an injustice to allow this behavior to go unpunished.

      The way that the sheriff handled these heinous crimes is shocking! I hope Texas officials give this petition the attention that it deserves. These types of barbaric and inhumane actions should be considered a felony!
