Father Accused of Shooting Daughter’s Dogs Because She Didn’t Clean Dishes Must be Punished

Target: David W Prater, District Attorney for Oklahoma County, Oklahoma

Goal: Punish man who allegedly shot pets to discipline children.

In a shocking act of parental discipline, an Oklahoma man allegedly killed his daughter’s pet dogs as punishment for not doing chores. The accused now faces animal cruelty charges and, if found guilty, should receive the maximum available punishment.

The alleged incident began when the teenage girl and her brother were staying with their father. The children allege that when the accused discovered dirty dishes in the sink, he became extremely angry and demanded the children get out of his house. After the girl went home with her mother, she reportedly returned to her father’s house later to find the dogs missing. A witness alleges that the girl’s father, Jeffrey Don Edwards, shot the two dogs living on the premises as retribution for the argument. Authorities later discovered both dogs’ bodies a short distance from the home.

If these allegations prove true, two innocent animals lost their lives because of a domestic dispute. Sign this petition to demand justice for these living beings allegedly left at the mercy of a cruel and violent caretaker.


Dear District Attorney Prater,

The case of Jeffrey Don Edwards is a stark reminder of the dangers of domestic disputes. As in so many cases, innocent lives were allegedly lost. The circumstances surrounding this animal cruelty case should aggravate, not mitigate, the alleged crime.

An individual who would allegedly harm not one but two beloved pets as a twisted form of “punishment” for his children is not an individual who should be granted leniency. Not only were these animals allegedly executed in a cold, cruel manner, but their bodies were equally coldly disposed of. Further, this reported action has shattered the trust, humanity, and caring that should inform the relationship between a parent and a child. If this man did indeed shoot to kill his child’s cherished pets, he did not just commit animal cruelty. He enacted a destructive form of child abuse.

Please ensure that if found guilty, this alleged abuser will be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
