Well considering the owners didn't keep their dog on a leash and let it wonder freely possibly mauling children or other people I would say charges most certainly need to be filed against the owners for not keeping their pet under control. I have seen numerous cases where their "harmless" dog attacked children they weren't familiar with. If you don't want to bother with keeping your animals on your property don't go crying when something happens to it.

This person that came forward and "found" Jetta should be fined for his prolonged unspoken for and unnecessary inhumane actions "supposedly" after the death of Jetta. I wouldn't want to find my dogs fur and flesh smeared down the road by my home especially finding out the person responsible is the person who "found" her and put her out of her misery? Now im thinking who is worse the unknown person who ran her over or the "finder" who kept his inhumane actions a secret for a prolonged period if time?

necropsy should easily tell if the poor dog was shot or not if NOT arrest should follow

I also don't believe this story. First of all, if he found Jetta hit by a car and suffering on the side of the road, why didn't he call Animal Control or the Police? If then, like he said, he shot her to "put her out of her misery", why wouldn't he THEN call Animal Control or the Police? Why would he bring the dead dog to his yard and let it rot instead of calling Animal Control or the Police? Then why would he drag it from his truck to the side of a road because it started to smell? with Hay Bale Wire no less? The story just doesn't make sense. I think he's covering up a more sinister story here. Either way, there were LOTS of other options. All he had to do was pick up a phone.

My concern is that the person who turned himself in has changed his story a couple of times as was stated in the Sheriff's report when this first broke. Like with any alleged crime, when turned over to the DA's office, it is their responsibility to investigate. I am hopeful they will do the right thing and not just dismiss this and let it fall thru the cracks because the victim doesn't have a voice in the matter.

As reported in the Fox 23 article, the man supposedly "lived not far" from the family. (NOTE: This was a female dog with new puppies, they generally stay close to their litter.) Would not that constitute as being neighbors? Did he consider THEM for even the briefest of moments? Upon seeing an injured animal, COULD the man have taken the dog to a vet? CALLED a vet for advice? Animal control? The Rogers County Sheriffs office? Or upon seeing an injured animal, was it simply something played out similar to this: "Heck, get my gun! I gots to put this mutt here down. It's the human thang to do since huntin' season ain't here yet!" *POP* "Damn, missed 'im." *POP!* "LOOK! There's a rabbit!" *POP!* "DAMN! Missed 'im too." Exactly how long does a decomposing body take to get so bad, even in this heat, that it interferes with your daily life? With that question in mind, what was the time frame between how long the dog was missing until her remains were tragically discovered spread along a mile of a road? There are quite a few unanswered questions in this case. What about an autopsy? Have all the vehicles belonging to the shooter been examined? Who came forward first? One report states it was a woman. What is the relationship between the families and their extended families? Any past animosity? To the RCDA,you have a quite a job to do and the nation is watching.

This case has been turned over to the DA's office. If you feel a need to voice your concerns, in a diplomatic way, here is the contact info: DA's Office (918) 341-3164 I was given the name "Misty" who is taking calls. They will take a message and if she can, she will return your call. They were hesitant to release any one person who is handling the investigation. District Attorney in this district is Janice Steidley. Her email is: janice.steidley@dac.state.ok.us We need to be the voice for these animals.
