Man Accused of Shooting Family Dog Execution Style at Mall Must be Jailed

Target: Ken Cotter, Prosecutor, 60th Judicial Circuit (St. Joseph County), Indiana
Goal: Punish man accused of shooting family pet execution style at local mall.

Blood stains remain in the snow at the mall where a family’s dog was shot between the eyes, execution style, reportedly by a man who objected to the dog being off leash. The man accused of this horrific execution is free on bail and must not be allowed to escape punishment if found guilty.

According to reports, the dog named Major, escaped from his owner at the mall and was running around the parking lot with his leash dragging behind him. The dog was quickly retrieved by his owner, who proceeded to sit down with the dog on a bench. At this point, the reported shooter, Jon Hanley, 52, pulled out a handgun, walked up to the dog and his owner and fired a single shot into the animal. The dog dropped to the ground while the owner screamed out in terror.

Fortunately, a police officer in the vicinity rushed to the dog’s aid and transported Major to a veterinary hospital, where he underwent emergency surgery. Major is currently clinging to life with an uncertain future, while the accused shooter is out on bail, free to do whatever he wishes. Sign this petition to demand that the man accused of shooting this innocent dog between the eyes have his bail revoked and that he is prosecuted fully.


Dear Prosecutor Cotter,

A man in your jurisdiction has been accused of shooting a family’s pet, execution style, at a local mall. Apparently, the man objected to the dog escaping from his owner and decided to execute the poor animal. Reports indicate that the dog was under control when he was shot.

Fortunately, a local law enforcement officer rushed to the scene and transported the dog to the veterinary hospital. The accused shooter, Jon Hanley, was apparently arrested but then released on bail. If it is true that this man attempted to kill this dog, execution style at the mall, he has no business walking free. He must be re-arrested, have his bail denied, and be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

  1. There are sometimes frustrated people by the horrible behavior of pet owners… My next door neighbor lets her german shepherd bark day and night her dog, despite her attention being called upon her 🐕 excessive barking. With this had said I don’t justify the action of this man’s stupidity…I hope he’ll get the maximum penalty by the laws of this state!!!

      AN EYE FOR AN EYE~~!!!!!

  2. That sociopath would not have had to worry about his bail if it would have been me, because he would not be there to be out on bail. That person is sick. They need to stay incarcerated. If the shot was fired within 3 feet of the owner, it should actually be considered and prosecuted as an attempted murder. Within that range, technically, the owner of the animal could have been considered as a possibility of the intended target. At the very least, it should be tried as an aggrevated assault charge depending on the proximity of the owner at the time. If they were close enough to be holding the leash, there needs to be a charge involving the firearm and the owner as well.

    Another evil piece of filth that needs to be exterminated.

  4. Shoot him between the eyes before I do

  5. Yea it’s only ok when pigs shoot your dog duh. Then it’s justified. Man I need a badge to say I can kill who or what I want. Hey look I just found one at the dollar tree! Now I have just as much authority as a pig fucking cop.

  7. Scumbags who cause such cruelty to animals should be removed from the face of the earth!
    Not everyone likes animals I realise but there is no need for cruelty of any kind.

    We hear so many cruelty cases but not much gets done.charges are crap the law may aswell slap the hand of the offender’s, but me, I would euthanise them as they don’t deserve to live amongst us or animals.

  8. Maureen Garney says:

    This sick individual needs to be in jail for the rest of his life. If he did that to my dog, he would already be dead.

  9. What is the matter with some people (too many as far as I’m concerned)? What goes on inside their heads? If we can ever figure that out, the world will be a better place. In the mean time, prosecute this man to the fullest! ( By the way, doesn’t’ he need a concealed carry permit?)
