The actions of a sick and deranged neighbor of a four-year old girl may have just scarred the poor child for life.
He shot her dog and then proudly posted his evil deed on Facebook.
Police say Kenneth Woodburn of Maryland acted out of malice because the girl’s dog, Tank would habitually walk on his property without so much as a courtesy “woof.”
Woodburn even gave a forewarning on Facebook saying, “Hey going to dye today [sic],” in reference to the dog breaching his territory.
Via The Examiner:
On March 12, Ince’s dog named Tank, who was well-known in the neighborhood and informally known as the mascot of the daycare center on the same street where Ince and Woodburn both lived, was shot and killed. Woodburn allegedly didn’t like Tank because the dog would walk on his property
The day that Tank was killed, Ince believes the dog was on his way over to the daycare center, where he spent most of his time with the little girl, and may have been lured onto Woodburn’s property with treats. According to Woodburn, the dog “charged” him.
An update on the petition site states:
I just want everyone to know that it is looking like Mr. Woodburn will be charged. In St. Mary’s County Maryland animal cruelty is a felony. If he is found guilty of a felony he will NEVER be allowed to own a gun legally again! That would be great. We still want as many signatures as possible so lets keep it going so that we are able to show a lot of suport…
Thanks again to everyone!”
Rest in power, Tank. Hit the flip to see the incriminating picture of Woodburn and the dog’s corpse.
