DNA clears dog implicated in dog killing

Dog on death row for killing another dog has been cleared

Thanks to DNA testing, a dog who was on death row for allegedly killing someone else’s dog, has been cleared of the canine crime. According to the Detroit Free Press, “Jeb,” a Belgian Malinois, was facing a death sentence for allegedly killing a neighbor’s Pomeranian in August.

Jeb’s owner, Kenneth Job, had surrendered the dog after the alleged killing, and a judge ordered the Malinois to be euthanized for being a “dangerous dog,” but a temporary stay of execution was granted in order to allow Job to complete DNA testing to see if his dog was actually the killer of the smaller dog.

It turns out, Jeb was innocent of the crime. On October 26, the Free Jeb-Belgian Malinois page, stated:

DNA results are in!! Jeb did NOT kill the Sawa’s Pomeranian! So let’s see how long it takes before they let him come home, he has already spent 2 months there for no reason!!!

On Wednesday, the same Facebook page posted a photo, and a post informing page followers that Jeb was safe and free, “WOOOHOOO! Freedom Ride Home!!! He is very skinny! His vet will be checking him out thoroughly! More pictures later!”

Dog accused of killing another dog has been cleared

Jeb was wrongly accused, and nearly killed, though there were no eye witnesses to the killing – he was surrendered to St. Clair County Animal Control in late August after he was found standing over the neighbor’s deceased dog.

Earlier this week, DNA testing cleared several dogs accused of fatally mauling a woman in Texas – sadly, in that case, the accused dogs had already been killed at an area animal control facility.

    Before these trigger / kill happy bastards kill ANY dog, they need to do a DNA test to make certain they make the right dog! Do they kill people now if there is a possibility of a DNA result that might clear someone, especially one that can be done so quickly? Too many cops just don’t care about our pets, which is why I WILL NOT sign a petition about ‘blue live mattering’ or any of that BS until they prove they give a damn.

    Thank goodness cooler heads prevailed! I’m so happy that this dog was freed since he hadn’t done the deed. No if only someone had done some investigating before Texas needlessly killed 7 innocent dogs!
