Dog Shot in Head and Left to Die Deserves Justice

Target: Dwight K. Scroggins Jr., District Attorney for Buchanan County, Missouri

Goal: Demand that the person who shot a dog in the head and left her to die in the woods receives the maximum penalty by law.

A pit bull was shot twice in the head and left for dead in a shocking case of animal cruelty. The person responsible is still at large. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

“Taking her into the woods and shooting her, I don’t know anything that would justify that,” stated Danielle Reno, a member of Unleashed Pet Rescue. Mushroom hunters found the critically injured pit bull, named Lagertha by rescuers, in the woods and brought her to a veterinarian. Lagertha was shot twice in the back of her head, causing her skull to fracture. She suffered injuries to her jaw, teeth, and neck and lost a lot of blood. If not rescued and provided with veterinary care, she would have died slowly and painfully.

Thanks to Unleashed Pet Rescue, Lagertha is recovering. She has made considerable progress and is even walking on her own. However, the person responsible for this cruelty is still at large. Sign below and demand that this person is charged and punished to the greatest extent of the law.


Dear Prosecutor Scroggins,

A dog suffered and nearly died after she was shot in the head. The dog was then abandoned in the woods to die slowly and painfully. We demand justice for this innocent dog.

Mushroom hunters found Lagertha, a pit bull, covered in blood and dying in the middle of the woods. They immediately rushed her to a veterinarian, where an exam determined that she had been shot in the head twice. Lagertha suffered a skull fracture and extensive blood loss. She also sustained injuries to her teeth, jaw, and neck. Miraculously, Lagertha survived and is continuing to recover at Unleashed Pet Rescue. However, the person who is responsible for her suffering is still at large.

This person is a danger to animals and must be punished. We demand that you prosecute them and seek the maximum penalty in this case.

    I’m having a major problem signing this petition because of my email address. It keeps saying the email address has a typo and there’s nothing of a kind.

  3. David J Horchak says:

    If You don’t penalize the horrible person/persons who did this, it will only escalate their violence, up to and including human life, it shows a total lack of empathy and for the value of life.

  4. Gwenna Carlson says:

    The people don’t seem to understand that people who abuse and are cruel to animals is a stepping stone to becoming a murderer of PEOPLE.If you know this EVIL PERSON and The DOG you need to get this murderer off the Streets before YOU may become HUS NEXT VICTIM.This so CALLED HUMAN BEING is an EVIL,VILE,PIECE of SLIME OF THE EARTH THAT THINKS HE IS INVINCIBLE.He is a COWARD and has SERIOUS PSYCHIATRIC DEFECTS. If you know who this is and think this is okay to do to DEFENSLESS ANIMALS than you are the sicker one if the bunch. No body with any respect for themselves could ever condone this Psychotic behavior to go unpunished. You will be held for ACCOUNTABILITY IN FRONT OF GOD ONJUDGEMENT DAY. GID KNOWS AND SEES ALL and You cannot lie your way out of this one. My Friend READ REVELATIONS, the last BOOK OF THE BIBLE AND SEES WHAT AWAITS YOU IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
