A Tulsa father is behind bars after shooting and killing a dog inside his home, in front of his 11-year-old daughter.

Amazing he did not get shot by the police like the kid in Clinton. Cops show up shoot the kid dead and leave. All legal. This dog shooter killer is lucky. He never should have let them in the house. I have nothing to say. http://disgustedbeyondbelief.blogspot.com/2008/07/dont-talk-to-cops.html

That's gonna cost him a pretty penny. I have two dogs pit/heeler mix they pull like mules. But I would NEVER shoot them. They protect my home while I'm there and when I'm away. Heck, I don't always lock the door when I head out. There is a sign that says be ware of dogs. I don't really need it, you get close to the door and they raise ten kinds of ruckus. If you know them and you go inside they might lick you to death. If you act violent then they will most likely bite you. My momma dog has eight baby's so she's very territorially protective. That's a terrible shame that he killed the dog like that, especially in front of the kids. They see dad do it they ratify it. Probably stain the carpet real bad. If he disliked the dog that much put it in the garage and rehome it, use craiglist Thrifty nickel or some classified. I wonder what prompted him to shoot the dog??? He could do some time in the county jail. If so maybe the judge will give him a year and a day. There is just no excuse for that.
