Mother Deer and Fawn Shot with Pellet Rifle Deserve Justice

Target: Edward Berberian, Marin County District Attorney, California

Goal: Punish a man allegedly responsible for the unjust killing of a mother deer and her fawn.

A mother deer and her baby were reportedly shot using a high-powered pellet rifle after they were found browsing in a man’s garden. The alleged shooter, homeowner Mark Dickinson, claimed he was using the rifle to “scare” the deer away, even though the animals are protected from hunting in residential areas in Marin County, California. Both deer suffered excruciating deaths and deserve justice.

Dickinson is said to have aimed his rifle at the doe and young fawn in the early morning hours after he noticed them eating his landscaping. The gun reportedly used was equipped with laser sights and a flashlight beam, which may have made it easier for him to target the quick-moving creatures. Both deer were severely injured after they were struck, and were found dead by the time animal welfare agents arrived at the scene.

There is no reason these deer should have suffered such agonizing deaths, as there are many ways to startle or scare off deer without resorting to lethal measures. Sign this petition to demand that Dickinson receive the maximum penalty for this act of animal cruelty if convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Berberian,

A helpless doe and her fawn were allegedly killed in a shocking case of animal cruelty in Tiburon. Both deer died as a result of being shot using a high-powered pellet rifle after a homeowner was allegedly upset that they were eating plants in his garden. The deer were left to suffer unimaginable pain before succumbing to their injuries.

This is an unnecessary tragedy, as there are many ways to drive away deer that do not involve using weapons in a residential area. This man’s actions appear to have been both reckless and inhumane. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty under law if he is found guilty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Take homeowner Mark Dickinson out into his yard and use his bare butt for target “practice”….Include his lying attorney too.

    A person does not use this type of a weapon unless they want to kill. What or who will be next?? A child??
