22-year old Paul Felice of Eaton County, Michigan, decided he was no match for his former girlfriend's pit-bull puppy, so he killed her.
The puppy was only 7-months old when Felice bound her muzzle with duct tape, brought her to an empty field and shot her with a rifle in the head.
Felice claimed he was scared of the puppy and was only trying to protect himself and his ex-girlfriend's kids. That's right, folks, he was scared of the 7-month old pup who he was able to hold down long enough to wrap her mouth with tape. His defense didn't hold up at his trial and he was found guilty of one felony count of killing an animal.
On July 28, Felice will stand before Judge Thomas Eveland to receive his sentence. He could face up to four years in prison, $5,000 in fines and ordered not to own animals for an allotted amount of time.
Sign the petition to ask Judge Eveland to give the maximum sentence to Felice and make it a point that animal cruelty will not be tolerated.

Felice was recently found guilty of one felony count of killing an animal. He claimed he was scared of the puppy. However, he was able to overpower her long enough to wrap her muzzle in duct tape, take her to a field and shoot her in the head. It's clear the puppy was not a threat.
Animal cruelty often precedes violence towards humans. What Felice did was unacceptable and I urge you to show the country that Eaton County does not tolerate animal cruelty by giving Felice the maximum allowable sentence.
