Veteran’s Service Dog Shot in Head and Face Deserves Justice

Target: Kirsten H. Pabst, County Attorney for Missoula County, Montana

Goal: Punish the person who shot a veteran’s service dog three times in the shoulder, face, and head.

A veteran’s service dog suffered serious injuries to the head and shoulder when he was shot by an unknown assailant. The 2-year-old German Shepherd, named Lucca, disappeared and was found days later with multiple, painful gunshot wounds. Demand that justice is served for this innocent animal.

“It’s amazing for what he’s been through that he still trusts everybody,” stated Cassidy Russell, Missoula County Animal Control Officer. They picked Lucca up around Cote Lane, a significant distance from his home with a local veteran, after they received reports of a stray dog. Lucca suffered gunshot wounds to the face, head, and shoulder and had a bullet removed from his jaw. He is receiving ongoing veterinary care and support to aid in his recovery.

Miraculously, Lucca survived, but the person responsible for this malicious cruelty is still at large and possibly dangerous to other animals. Sign below and demand that this person is prosecuted, once identified, and punished to the fullest extent of the law.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear County Attorney Pabst,

A service dog named Lucca was shot three times in the face, head, and shoulder after disappearing from his home with a Missoula County veteran. The 2-year-old German Shepherd was picked up quite a distance away, indicating that he may have been abducted prior to the shooting. He is recovering, thanks to Missoula Animal Control, but the person responsible for this horrific cruelty is still at large and possibly dangerous to the county’s animals.

Malicious cruelty to an animal is something that cannot be tolerated. Across the country, cruelty offenders are facing felony charges and harsher penalties for their established involvement in the suffering of innocent animals. In Lucca’s case, the person found responsible should be granted the same fate.

I demand that you prosecute this case, once the perpetrator is identified, and seek the maximum penalty possible, should they be found guilty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  2. Lock him up for good.

  3. If this POS could do this to a service dog, or any dog, then he’s a sicko who will go after a person too. Find him, punish him and ban him from guns for life.

    This is not only egregious cruelty to an animal, but a dreadful cruelty to a veteran!

  5. Catch the monster who did this and put them under the jail where they belong. I hope Lucca recovers completely and doesn’t suffer any after effects.

    WE THE PUBLIC DEMAND JUSTICE AND WE ARE WATCHING TO MAKE SURE THAT HAPPENS. I ALSO HOPE THE OWNER DOESN’T LET LUCCA OUT OF HIS SIGHT TO KEEP HIM SAFE.

  6. This vile bastard attempted dog killer must be exterminated! I am willing to help perform this duty.

  7. Someone please find this sick POS and kill him
