Sign Petition Calling For Alleged Killer Of Doe & Fawn To Be Charged With Felony Animal Cruelty

The tragic news that a doe and her fawn have been senselessly killed by a man trying to protect his new landscaping is appalling and the perpetrator should be held accountable for the heartbreaking loss.

Mark Dickinson, a resident of Tiburon in Northern California, was arrested on suspicion of felony animal cruelty but is currently out on bail while the case is being investigated.

Dickinson reportedly became upset when the animals started eating new plants in his yard and decided to do something about it.

Horrifically, instead of making noise to make them leave, installing a fence or using deer repellent, Dickinson opted to use a high-powered pellet gun equipped with a scope, laser beam and flashlight attachments to shoot the defenseless animals in their sides.

The doe and fawn suffered agonizing and painful deaths, according to a Tiburon police sergeant.

In a feeble attempt of an excuse, Dickinson’s lawyer claims that his client had no intent to be cruel or to harm the deer. He was only trying to scare them away from his new, expensive landscaping.

If that was the case, the deer would be still alive.

In California, anyone who “maliciously and intentionally maims, mutilates, tortures, or wounds a living animal, or maliciously and intentionally kills an animal” can be charged with a felony.

The Care2 community wants to make sure justice is served.

Please sign the petition urging the Marin County District Attorney’s Office to charge him with felony animal cruelty HERE!
