#JusticeFor Mia UPDATE! REWARD INCREASED TO $1000
Puppy slain, killer on the loose
ANTIOCH, Tennessee (April 5, 2015) – An unidentified shooter stood on a stack of cinder blocks and fired a weapon over a locked privacy fence into the backyard of an Antioch family Monday, striking a 7-month-old puppy named Mia in the face. Mia died immediately as a result of her wound.
The family does not know who killed their dog, and a $1000 reward is being offered by Nashville PITTIE for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible. If you have any information regarding Mia’s killing, please call the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department (615) 862-8600. The perpetrator is armed and dangerous. Do not attempt to contact or confront anyone involved. Nashville PITTIE, a local non-profit pit bull advocacy and rescue organization, has established a Justice for Mia Facebook page and a reward fund on behalf of the affected family. Please donate via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
About Tennessee’s animal laws: The intentional killing of animal is considered theft of property. The penalty (misdemeanor vs. felony) is based on the ‘value’ of the dog. If the dog is a mixed breed or shelter dog, the court can assign a lesser penalty at a minimum of a Class A misdemeanor (11 months, 29 days incarceration and a maximum $2,500 fine). If the alleged perpetrator is found out, the dog owner may seek civil damages up to $5,000.
