Dogs Reportedly Skinned for “Doggy Coat” Deserve Justice

Target: Daniel Cameron, Attorney General of Kentucky

Goal: Punish man accused of stabbing and skinning several dogs.

Four dogs were allegedly killed and skinned in a horrific case of animal cruelty. A David, Kentucky caller sent state authorities to the grotesque and disturbing scene at the home of Jonathan Watkins. Watkins seemingly brandished a hunting knife and wore blood-stained clothes as police approached. Upon questioning, he allegedly confessed that he had killed and skinned four dogs to “make myself a doggy coat.”

The disturbing incident began when police responded to a complaint by Watkins’ neighbor. The neighbor reported seeing what appeared to be animal skins hanging from Watkins’ porch. Watkins had also allegedly bragged to this neighbor that he had been skinning dogs. This claim raised the neighbor’s alarm because several neighborhood dogs had apparently gone missing.

After officers talked to Watkins at his home, the suspect reportedly admitted to stabbing the dogs through the heart. He also apparently claimed “there isn’t anything wrong with me making myself a fur coat.” This case of animal cruelty is reportedly not even Watkins’ first brush with the law. A few years ago, he was accused of shooting and killing his stepfather, but the charges were dismissed.

Sign this petition to demand the legal system do its job this time and punish an atrocious act of alleged animal cruelty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Cameron,

Several years ago, Jonathan Watkins—a man accused by eyewitnesses of repeatedly shooting and killing his stepfather—walked away from prison time because a judge deemed he “was not criminally responsible.” State legal authorities then refused to seek an involuntary hospitalization that could have at the very least kept this potentially lethal man from inflicting further harm.

Fast-forward to today, and four skinned dog carcasses were reportedly discovered on Watkins’ property….and Watkins allegedly confessed that he did indeed slaughter and then skin innocent neighborhood pets. These animals deserve justice. This time Watkins must not be let off the hook if he is indeed found to be guilty as it seems.

Please prosecute Mr. Watkins to the fullest extent of the law…for the sake of his alleged victims and for the safety of any potential future victims.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Jonathan Watkins deserves the death penalty. No question.

  2. Kathy Khoshfahm says:

    Dan – If this crime doesn’t warrant prosecution, I don’t know what does. Jonathan Watkins is guilty of murder and he needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent allowed under Kentucky law. The Animal Kingdom has just as much right as we do to live their lives in peace on this planet, free from torture and murder at the hands of humans. Please show the world that the State of Kentucky WILL NOT TOLERATE animal abuse and murder! Please!

  3. As far as i’m concerned animals lifes are just as important as our. They deserve to live just like we. All of us that love and care for animal would say do the same to this heartless good for nothing that he did to four beloved patw. He does not deserve to live. At the very least lock this phyco up and throw the key away. Anyone that would hurt a defense animal ( he killed four) would hurt a child too. Don’t give him the chance to hurt anyone else.

  4. What the hell is the matter with this stupid state not prosecuting this pervert? He’s clearly mental and dangerous. FRY the SOB. Calling all Vigilantes: the authorities do nothing – make this POS disappear….PERMANENTLY. If they didn’t do anything to him, they sure as hell won’t do anything to you for taking care of their problem.
    p.s. – How come when nut jobs with guns are out shooting, they never shoot garbage like THIS?

    Of course, what’s the difference between killing and skinning dogs for coats (a la Cruella de Vil), and trapping/farming/slaughtering millions of foxes, minks, beavers, racoons, lynxs, etc, for fur coats or trim on jackets, etc? Or slaughtering cows for their leather to make covers for expensive car seats?

  6. This man is dangerous. Remember Luka Magnotta: first he killed cats and then he killed a man and sent bodyparts in boxes. This Watkins won’t stop harming living beings, he’s a lunatic. He needs to be locked up and taken care of, away from healthy people.

  7. Julian Dugan says:

    Please please put this menace to society behind bars. He doesn’t need to be around people or animals!!!!

    THIS IS THE PATHETIC, DISGUSTING AND TOTALLY INEPT JUDICIAL SYSTEM. NOT DOING THEIR JOB’S BUT WHAT IS NEW HERE.THEY ARE SHAMELESS AND NEED A FUCKING LARGE TOILET FLUSH TO GET PEOPLE IN THERE WHO HAVE ANY BRAINS IN THEIR HEAD. SO IT’S OK TO KILL STEPFATHER AND SET FREE. MAKES ME SICK WITH DISGUST. THEN THESE ANIMALS,..MOST LIKELY NEIGHBOURS DOGS. JUST WATCH HOW PATHETIC KENTUCKY INBREADS ARE. SAME MENTALITY. FUCKING RETARDS. I’D SAY THROW THIS MONSTER IN JAIL BUT HE WILL BE PROTECTED AND SERVED HOT COFFEE,..WASTE HOW MUCH TAX PYER’S MONEY,..THEN SAID BY POLICE,…”NOW AFTER THE SHOOTING AND AFTER THESE 4 DOGS ARE MURDERED,….PLEASE BE A GOOD BOY”. NOW I WANT A RAISE. FUCKING DISGUSTING…..

  9. What a cold-blooded low-life ignorant hillbilly this person is. What pain, suffering and TRAUMA he caused these dogs is unbelievable. How could someone do such a horribly CRUEL thing to animals??!! This is despicable and so is HE. This is unacceptable.

  10. Exactly what the hell do you have to do to be locked up in Kentucky?…I’m beginning to see how McConnell gets elected. This sadistic, demonic, sub-human is a danger to all animals and all human beings. He is a waste of protoplasm. This is beyond sick. How can people live with and around this thing and allow him to continue to run free? He is a psychopath and a rotten, useless sub-human being. Put him away, permanently.

  11. HORRIFIC! High Fines/Prison!

  12. Why don’t we skin him and make a “Watkins” coat?

  13. HORRIBLE==DEATH PENALTY…ELSE THIS DEMON WILL CONTINUE

  14. Denise Devereux says:

    The only species needing culling from this Planet is much of the Human Race.
    Show this piece of shit some STREET JUSTICE! Anyone got balls in your country to show him what it is like to go up against someone his own size.

    • This piece of scum needs Street Justice alright, like a Red Hot poker where the sun doesn’t shine, then he needs hanging somewhere remote to wither away. Wicked, evil subhuman heathen

  15. Susan Budde says:

    If it were up to me, this Hannibal Lector would get the death penalty. He is an evil degenerate that needs to be taken out. Hopefully, someone will beat him to death so he can’t abuse and kill any more animals.

  16. Try to skin him so he know how its feel, death penalty is too easy for this bastard

  17. According to my Bible,God has stated That whoever abuse animals will be held accountable.

  18. He’s lucky it wasn’t one of my dogs cause he would be a dead man!!!! I can’t believe someone hasn’t killed him already after doing all this?!! Why is he not, at the very least, beaten up over this? This man needs to suffer like no other!!!

  19. Debra kavanaugh says:

    He needs to be in prison with life without parole. He shouldn’t of killed those dogs that’s wrong and it’s cruel those dogs didn’t deserve that

  20. Debra kavanaugh says:

    He’s a lunatic
