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]

  4. The only purpose of punishment for this individual is to keep him off the streets and away from innocent animals. We must remember that most, if not all, people abusers started their life of crime abusing animals. In this case, it appears that he may have begun his crime spree killing people. In either case, one must wonder what type of upbringing he, himself, experienced.

  5. He needs to be removed from society, permanently.

    • Agree. Let’s hope the Attorney General has the guts to invoke the most severe penalty. Should be incarcerated for minimum 20. Years – and castrated as well.

  15. He’s a piece of shit. This is so cruel and abusive to do to any animal. Hell if he needed a coat he could’ve gone down to the he store and bought one.
