I would like to defend William Youngman. I have known him and his family for eleven years. He would NEVER harm anyone or ANY type of animal. He is the definition of "animal lover". I know that he was only trying to help the dog (which he thought was a stray)
I am asking you all to keep an open mind and heart, a man with a family and a dog waiting for him at home was badly beaten.

The owner of the Dog photographed the entire scene before the police and medical personnel arrived. Pictures tell a thousand words. The house under construction is clearly visible from the road.

The dog was is an extremely rare species of dog in the wild and face extinction. Youngerman should have done everything to save him. People like Youngerman often maim and shoot these dogs because they are too stupid to know about them. These native American dogs are a national treasure. I hope Youngerman's DNA dies out rather than the only Native North American species of dog.

If william youngman is a animal lover he would have tried to save this animal. In my opinion he was evil to mutilate the dog further. All dogs go to heaven will he? Not by hurting God's creature!!!
