Justice for Dog Reportedly Executed Behind Dumpster

Target: Steve Mulroy, District Attorney for Shelby County, TN

Goal: Punish man accused of shooting and killing dog if he is found guilty.

A witness reportedly saw a horrific act of animal cruelty unfold in Memphis, Tennessee. The person claimed to see a man drag a dog into a wooded area. Shortly thereafter, the witness apparently heard several gunshots. The dog then seemingly fled from the area with a wound to the head. In an even more disturbing turn of events, the suspect allegedly caught and dragged the pup again…this time behind a dumpster. The witness reported more gunshots, and authorities later discovered a deceased dog at the dumpster site.

Officers also reportedly confiscated a firearm from the car of the suspect, John Coleman. This man has since been arrested on aggravated animal cruelty charges. If he did indeed commit such a brazen act in plain view, he needs to face severe consequences.

Sign the petition below to demand this suspect be prosecuted to the fullest extent.


Dear DA Mulroy,

A defenseless dog was allegedly dragged, shot, stalked, and then shot again in view of a Memphis witness. This poor animal apparently died as a result. Think about the terror and pain that must have been felt by this living being.

Please do not let this horrendous case go unpunished. Suspect John Coleman was found with a gun; the actions he took with the firearm appear to have been calculated and malicious. If he is guilty, he needs to face the maximum punishment for justice’s sake and to prevent further escalation of such cold cruelty.

    for animal murder
    maximum penalty $20.00.
    that’s it. simply embarrassing and above all extremely insulting and embarrassing towards the victims – the animals.
    there was another possibility. the possibility of a labor camp, but – but – but WITHOUT animal therapists. NO, no animals near these sick devils
