Sign: Man Killed His Dog Because She Didn't Hunt Well Enough - Send Him To Jail

In January 2019, a Lousianna man, Dustin Coker, repeatedly shot his three-year-old Labrador retriever, Gypsy, because she wasn't retrieving birds to his liking. The dog was so grievously injured that another man, hunting with Gypsy's owner, was forced to end her misery. 

Dustin Coker has been charged with felony animal cruelty and he has pleaded "no contest." Please sign this petition letting Judge Lisa b. Riley know that Coker needs to be punished to the fullest extent of the law. This man does not deserve probation or a deferred sentence - he needs to be put behind bars!

Update 4/14/2020: We are devastated to learn that Dustin Coker is trying to get his felony conviction thrown out! Judge Lisa Riley will be reviewing this case at an April 21 hearing. We want to submit your signatures, with this petition, to Judge Riley before the hearing. It is crucial that Judge Riley knows that WE care about Coker's felony conviction. Dustin Coker shot and killed a beautiful dog and at the very least, he should carry the title of "convicted felon" as punishment for his cruel behavior.

Please join us in being Gypsy's voice and sign this petition asking Judge Lisa b. Riley to put Dustin Coker behind bars for the maximum amount of time. Additionally, we ask that Dustin Coker be prevented from owning any animals ever again.

Gypsy's life was cruelly stolen from her by the man that she loved, 29-year-old Dustin Coker. While hunting in Carlsbad, New Mexico, Coker became angry when Gypsy failed to retrieve several ducks that he had shot. Coker repeatedly shot his faithful dog, causing her intestines to fall out. Seeing her suffering, Coker's hunting partner, Bailey Perez, humanely ended her agony.

Officials did what was right, and charged Dustin Coker with a felony charge of extreme cruelty to animals, a charge which he recently pleaded no contest to. In early October, Coker will be sentenced for this heinous crime. 

Please join us in being Gypsy's voice and sign this petition asking Judge Lisa b. Riley to put Dustin Coker behind bars for the maximum amount of time. Additionally, we ask that Dustin Coker be prevented from owning any animals ever again.
