Two Dogs Shot Multiple Times, Caught on Video

Please sign the letter to State Attorney Lawson Lamar, encouraging that this case be charged as a felony offense and that the maximum penalty be sought upon conviction, with sentencing orders on each injured dog to be served consecutively.

(Orange County, Fla.) Witnessed by several and videotaped by at least one, Christopher Comins shot two Siberian husky dogs who had come onto a property where Comins happened to be walking in May 2008. Reportedly claiming that the dogs were harassing a calf, Comins allegedly shot both of the dogs multiple times continuing to shoot after the dogs were already wounded and down while ignoring the pleas of their owner who was in close pursuit of them after their escape from his control.

One of the dogs ultimately lost an eye, both are recovering from their injuries.

The shooter’s alleged repeated infliction of unnecessary pain and suffering on these dogs calls for felony level charges to be brought by the State Attorney.

Watch the video and take action!
