20. It's also not the first time this vet had killed an animal

And the AVA will not even discipline him, the place where he works supports him, etc. He needs to stop raising animals in "coops" in his yard.

And you'd have to be sick to equate a dog pooping in a yard to being beaten to death. Or should we all start beating the numerous squirrels, birds, rabbits, possums, raccoons and other animals that poop in our yards every day? Not in my civilization.

Colleyville veterinarian indicted in dog's death

Attorney says man was saving livestock from miniature dachshund

By BRANDON FORMBY / The Dallas Morning News

A Colleyville veterinarian accused of killing his neighbor's dog with a log-splitting tool was indicted on one count of cruelty to an animal Thursday by a Tarrant County grand jury.

Dr. Mircea Volosen could face up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine if convicted of killing neighbor Kevin Ball's miniature dachshund after the dog entered a chicken coop on Dr. Volosen's property July 4.

William Cox III, Dr. Volosen's attorney, said his client was surprised and disappointed at the indictment. Mr. Cox said the dog was eating chickens and rabbits that Dr. Volosen kept in a coop in his yard at the time of the incident.

"We believe he was lawfully protecting his flock and being a good shepherd," said Mr. Cox. "This is the second time the dog was back there, and I guess the owner didn't care. I think clearly under the law, you're allowed to protect your livestock."
