Trespassers run over and kill family dog

To the Editor:

The intent of this letter is to ask for help in seeking out information in regard to a situation that happened at our home on Sunday, June 2.

My husband was home at the time and noticed a car drive into our driveway, turn around and proceed to drive away at an excessive speed while teasing and taunting our beautiful black lab mix. As you can imagine, this would be very purposely annoying to any animal, but to do so while driving uninvited on our private drive only got our dog more anxious.

After this display of inappropriate conduct with our dog, Jake, my husband heard the horrible sound of the car hitting him, running him over and leaving him to lie in the middle of the road! They did kill him, and worse yet left him lying there, never coming back to admit to us what they had done.  This is a heart-wrenching incident to have happen to any animal, especially someone’s family pet!

Jake had been a member of our family and was very inhumanely taken from us. I would appreciate any help in identifying the person(s) responsible for this tragedy.

To the guilty party: I would hope that the guilt I HOPE YOU FEEL would convince you to do the right thing and own up to your responsibility and report this.
