Animal Cruelty is immoral and against the law, a Boone County Deputy told a citizen that unless the cruelty done to Brutis was confessed by Steve Roberts then nothing could be done. This is false, according to Arkansas Animal Cruelty Laws "a law enforcement officer may make an arrest under the Arkansas Rules of Criminal Procedure and bring before a court or magistrate having jurisdiction any person alleged to have violated this subchapter". We ask that a investigation be done and justice to be served for Ms. Connie Heinen and Brutis.

I just signed the following petition addressed to: Boone County Sheriff's Department firstname.lastname@example.org.
Justice for Brutis
Brutis, Ms. Connie Heinen's Great Dane, was shot twice by her neighbor Steve Roberts. When the Police were called they advised Ms. Heinen that they could not do anything unless he confessed to this crime. This man, knowingly shot Brutis with two different guns, he almost lost his front leg. According to Arkansas State Animal Cruelty Laws, an investigation or arrest can and should be made. I ask that you acknowledge these two parts of Arkansas Animal Cruelty Laws; 5-62-113 " law enforcement officer may make an arrest under the Arkansas Rules of Criminal Procedure and bring before a court or magistrate having jurisdiction any person alleged to have violated this subchapter" and 5-62-103 "a person commits the offense of cruelty to animals if he or she knowingly: (1) Subjects any animal to cruel mistreatment; (2) Kills or injures any animal owned by another person without legal privilege or consent of the owner" Please join us in getting an investigation into the shooting of Brutis and serving justice to Ms. Connie Heinen and Brutis.
