Justice for Dog Reportedly Shot with Crossbow

Target: Jay Scott, State’s Attorney for Macon County, Illinois

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the two men who allegedly shot a dog with a crossbow.

A dog suffered serious injuries after it was reportedly shot with a crossbow. The suspects reportedly shot at the dog multiple times with intent to harm. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

“One individual that the mini crossbow belonged to shot at the dog and missed. He then gave the crossbow to his friend and said ‘Why don’t you do it? I know you won’t miss’ and he shot the dog,” stated Lieutenant Antonio Brown of the Macon County Sheriff’s Office. His deputies responded to the call, where they found the Corgi mix bleeding with an arrow sticking out if its shoulder.

Dalton Zindars and Dakota Leddy-Wilber were charged with aggravated animal cruelty and obstruction of justice. As a condition of their bond, they will not be allowed to be the primary caretaker for any animal. The dog is recovering. Sign below and demand that Zindars and Leddy-Wilber receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.


Dear State’s Attorney Scott,

A dog suffered tremendously after it was reportedly shot with a crossbow. The dog survived, but had to have more than $3,000 worth of surgery. We demand that this dog receive justice.

When the Macon County Sheriff’s deputies found the dog, it had an arrow sticking out of its shoulder. Per police, the suspects lived in the same neighborhood as the dog and deliberately shot the dog. The suspects initially fled the scene, but were caught thanks to CrimeStoppers and the Macon County Sheriff’s Office.

This horrific crime cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.
