My 3 year old dog sentenced to euthanization for only playing..
We have had Rebel since he was born, three years ago in July. We recently moved into a house on the water in New Kent and our neighbors have chickens. After months of these chickens coming on to our property, clucking and pestering the life out of my dog; Rebel was only curious and wanted to make new friends. One morning my mom was taking him out for a walk, the leash didn't clasp entirely and Rebel got loose, instantly he ran next door to do nothing but say hello. Yes rebel is a 100 pound Pitt Bull and is a lot stronger than us let alone any chicken. Keep in mind we have two other dogs.. Rebel payed alittle harder than the chickens could handle and some of them didn't make it. The thing is, rebel doesn't have a mean bone in his body, he was only playing and didn't intentionally kill those chickens. The neighbor took my mom to court and the Judge sentenced Rebel to euthanization by this Friday..
Anyone who has the love for animals that we do will know this wasn't done purposely . It would be different if it was a domestic animal like a cat or dog or even a human being, but for crying out loud we eat chicken! And no one ever says anything about hunting dogs killing deer and geese and whatever else for recreational purposes... This dog is my heart and soul, he's my family. This was his first time ever hurting anything. He doesn't deserve to die for this. Please sign this petition, it would mean the world, a life .
