Friendly dog called into neighbors fenced yard and shot to death for their enjoyment while looking up at them wagging its tail, in front of our 2 kids. This is against the law yet the deputy refused to do anything untill we contacted the humane society and they reopened the case.

Please call the sheriff and DA and tell them this is unexceptable. And charge the" people" at 1603 Hart rd campti, la with aggravated animal cruelty!

This was someones pet. It was black with a newer orange collar.

Yes case was reopened, and the deputy isn't pleased. It happened on oct 12th and the deputy lied and said there was nothing he could do, so wife got ahold of the Humane Society of Louisiana and they sent a formal request to the sheriff who has reopened it. I just want to get as many people to call in if needed. we are kind of awaiting for some payback from the deputy because he can't help his friends this time.

These people" bait" their backyard with leftovers and used to stay up. All night shooting whatever came by. They finally were ordered not to do that anymore mostly because of disturbing the peace.

If they shoot your dog then get the one that pulled the trigger and shoot his hand off. If you know for a fact who it was, let me know, will be glad to do it for you.

You are responsible for your own pet, and if it roams on someone elses property then it was your responsibility to keep it on your property.

Even if they "called it to their property" it was your responsibility to keep it on your land.

Just like if someone ran over your dog and damage was caused to their vehicle you are responsibile.

2773. Dogs as personal property; seizure of dogs running at large or on property fenced as a fox pen; notice to owner; dangerous or vicious dogs

A. Dogs owned by citizens of this state and by citizens of other states and situated and located in this state are declared to be personal property of such citizens.

B. Any citizen may, or the sheriff, constable, or other police officers of any parish, ward, or municipality shall seize any dog found unaccompanied by its owner or keeper and running at large on any road, street, or other public place, or trespassing on any premises other than the premises of the owner. If the dog is wearing a collar bearing a tag showing the name and address of its owner, it shall be impounded and the citizen or officer so seizing and impounding the dog shall immediately thereafter by written notice notify the owner of the dog, at the address disclosed by the tag on the dog's collar, that the dog has been seized and impounded by him, and unless the owner or keeper of the dog shall, within seven days from the receipt of the notice, claim the dog and pay the citizen or officer a fee of one dollar for seizing and a fee of twenty-five cents for each day it is impounded, it shall be disposed of in a humane manner.

2771. Dogs not to run at large

No person shall suffer or permit any dog in his possession, or kept by him about his premises, to run at large on any unenclosed land, or trespass upon any enclosed or unenclosed lands of another.

2654. Right to kill dog harassing livestock

Any person finding any dog not on the premises of its owner, harborer, or possessor, which is harassing, wounding, or killing livestock, may, at the time of finding the dog, kill him, and the owner shall not be able to sustain any action for damages against the person killing the dog.

Ok so even if it was on your property and they shot it the following may apply,

67.2. Theft of animals

A. Theft of animals is the misappropriation, killing, or taking of any animal which belongs to another, either without consent of the other to the misappropriation or taking, or by means of fraudulent conduct, practices, or representations. An intent to deprive the other permanently of the animal or an intent to ransom it for the purpose of extorting money or favor is essential.

B.(1) Whoever commits the crime of theft of animals, when the misappropriation or taking amounts to a value of one thousand five hundred dollars or more, shall be imprisoned, with or without hard labor, for not more than ten years, or may be fined not more than three thousand dollars, or both.

(2) When the misappropriation or taking amounts to a value of five hundred dollars or more, but less than a value of one thousand five hundred dollars, the offender shall be imprisoned, with or without hard labor, for not more than five years or may be fined not more than two thousand dollars, or both.

(3) When the misappropriation or taking amounts to less than a value of five hundred dollars, the offender shall be imprisoned for not more than six months or may be fined not more than five hundred dollars, or both. If the offender in such a case has been convicted of misdemeanor theft of an animal two or more times previously, upon any subsequent conviction he shall be imprisoned, with or without hard labor, for not more than two years or may be fined not more than one thousand dollars, or both.

(4) In addition to the foregoing penalties, a person convicted under this Section who killed an animal may be ordered to make full restitution to the owner of the animal. Restitution shall be in an amount not less than the value of the animal as determined by Subsection C of this Section. If a person ordered to make restitution pursuant to this Section is found to be indigent and therefore unable to make restitution in full at the time of conviction, the court shall order a periodic payment plan consistent with the person's financial ability.

C. The value of the animal which was misappropriated, killed, or taken shall be decided by the court, or the jury in a jury trial, based upon the evidence establishing the value beyond a reasonable doubt, including but not limited to the following:

(1) The amount of money which was acquired from the sale, use, or other disposal of the animal.

(2) Expert testimony as to the amount of money which may be acquired from the sale, use, or other disposal of the animal.

(3) In cases of a pet, testimony by the owner as to the strength of the bond between the owner and the animal and the emotional attachment between the animal and the owner or person with whom the animal is attached.

D. The provisions of Subsection C of this Section do not apply when the state proves beyond a reasonable doubt that the animal is a dog and a pet, and the theft of such animal shall be punishable as provided in Paragraph B(1) of this Section.

Craziness!!

The dog was not vicious (even if it is visious shooting it must only be done in self defence) and it wasnt bothering livestock, and it can be impounded by the sheriff not called into a fenced area and shot!! If it was the case they wouldnt have reopened the case!! And the Humane society would have said otherwise.

To be deemed vicious:
A. The district attorney, the sheriff, and animal control officer, or other designated representative, in the name of and on behalf of the parish and without the payment of any costs, shall be authorized to file a petition in the district court having jurisdiction requesting a hearing for the purpose of determining whether or not a dog should be declared dangerous as defined in R.S. 14:102.14(A) or vicious as defined in R.S. 14:102.15(A).

B. Upon the filing of the petition, the district judge shall immediately issue a rule on the owner of the dog to show cause why the dog should not be declared a dangerous or vicious dog. This rule shall, at the time of its issuance, be fixed for hearing not later than five days, including Sundays, half-holidays and holidays, from the date of its issuance, and shall be heard by preference over all other matters and cases fixed for the same day and shall be heard continuously day after day until submitted for adjudication.

C. Upon the showing made by the parties on the trial of the rule to show cause, the court shall determine whether the dog is a dangerous dog or a vicious dog and may make other orders authorized by this Section.



D. In every case where the dog is established to be a dangerous dog, the court shall enter an order declaring the dog to be a dangerous dog and shall direct the owner of the dog to comply with conditions established for the restraint and confinement of the dog as provided by law.

E. In every case where the dog is established to be a vicious dog, the court shall enter an order declaring the dog to be a vicious dog and shall direct that the vicious dog be humanely euthanized.

F. Any person who fails to restrain and confine a dangerous dog as ordered by the court shall be guilty to contempt and shall be fined not less than one hundred dollars nor more than five hundred dollars.

G. The pleading and practice in all cases under this Section shall be in accordance with the Code of Civil Procedure and the laws and rules of court governing before the district courts of this state.

H. The owner of the dog may appeal to the court of competent jurisdiction an order of the district court determining the dog to be dangerous or vicious. Such appeal shall be perfected within five calendar days from the rendition of the order and shall be made returnable to the appropriate appellate court in not more than fifteen calendar days from the rendition of the order. The applicant for the determination may appeal to the court of competent jurisdiction for an order reversing the order of the district court.

Most serial killers start out killing domestic or tame animals. The thrill of killing eventually graduates up to the level of human prey. Keep an eye on those folks.

I agree thats why I find it hard to believe the deputy doesnt care and that some will actually defend them. But so far they are only threatening weaker and defencless things.

They don't. That's why most, almost all, of their victims are defenseless. They are big cowards at heart. Who was the nut that did the shooting? He can be sued.

Nowhere in that law does it authorize the killing of an animal that is not attacking. A fine is not the same as a death sentence.

Where in there does it state they can shoot it???? Again the Humane soceity says they had no right and the Sheriff is reopening the case. There are fines given to the owner it does not give them the right to shoot it!!!

True Dat!!! Aside from metal anguish for our kids witnessing it I dont know. It wasnt our dog, But it was friendly (it had been around most of the day and came up to wife and her boy laid at their feet while they were on the porch. We took in most of the dogs we have just so they wouldnt be shot. We coulda took him im but we already have 5.
