This is Bella and her best friend. Bella is the perfect example of a well behaved, friendly and stable Pit Bull. Jeff Daniels of Cabarrus County, North Carolina has over 22 years experience with the breed and owns another named Jaxson.
Sadly, Bella’s story isn’t a happy one. On April 29th 2010, Bella and Jaxson slipped through a narrow opening in the fence in the yard of their home while the Daniels family were out. A neighbor called Animal Control and Deputy Sean Austin appeared on the scene. Austin could not catch Bella. Bella was afraid and was running from him. The trigger happy, incompetent deputy decided that 20 minutes on the scene was enough and had to make a decision. That decision was to shoot Bella despite the fact that Bella showed no signs of aggression whatsoever. Bella screamed loudly, continued to run and eventually fell. Bella died. Apparently Austin had other places to be. Sounds like a reasonable and rational decision. Read more about the events of that night by clicking THIS LINK.
The Daniel’s went to Animal Control to speak with Deputy Sean Austin and recorded their exchange with the heartless, defensive and aggressive officer. Watch for yourself and see what a jerk he is. There are several parts to the exchange. You’ll get to part one by clicking the screen shot of the dog killer below.
In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek at Animal Control being out of control.
Deputy Austin likes to throw around that the owners broke a law because their dog was at large. The dogs escaped from a confined yard. It happens sometimes and it’s quite obvious that the Daniel’s did not intentionally break any law. I suppose that is what Sean Austin likes to tell himself to shift the blame.
Of course, after trial, the city found Animal Control and Sean Austin not responsible for the events. In true corrupt and bureaucratic fashion, the murderer who works for the city walked free.
