Target: Bernie McCabe, Florida State Attorney
Goal: Find and charge driver who hit a service dog and then drove away.
A service dog named Zephyr was severely injured in a hit-and-run incident while helping his owner across the street. Zephyr was just doing his job when a speeding car ran him down. The seemingly deliberate attack occurred when the driver reportedly sped through a red light, slowed down, and then plowed straight into the dog. The driver of the car sped away without stopping, leaving Zephyr to die in the street. Zephyr suffered numerous broken bones, including a broken pelvis, but miraculously survived and is now recovering.
Zephyr provides comfort and security to his owner, who suffers from PTSD. So, when a hit-and-run driver sped through a red light and hit Zephyr, his owner was devastated. Zephyr’s owner, Paul Kostora, stated “whoever it was gunned it, right as my dog was in front of the car, and plowed him,” Kostra recalled. “I chased the driver for, like, two seconds, then I realized my dog is probably dead, so I ran over.”
The person responsible for this hit-and-run is still at large. Demand justice for this innocent service animal. Sign below and demand the maximum penalty for this dangerous hit-and-run driver.
Dear State Attorney McCabe,
A hit-and-run driver reportedly plowed through a red light and hit a service dog, leaving the dog to die in the street. The dog survived, but sustained numerous broken bones and other injuries.
Zephyr, the service dog, has an important job. He provides comfort and security to his owner, who suffers from PTSD. So, when a hit-and-run driver sped through a red light and hit Zephyr, his owner was devastated. Per reports, the driver gunned through the intersection, slowed down, and then plowed straight into the service dog.
This dangerous driver is still at large. We demand the maximum penalty for this hit-and-run driver.
