Man arrested after shooting woman’s German shepherd ‘execution style’

A man in Lakeville, Indiana, was arrested after he allegedly shot a woman’s German shepherd “execution style.” According to WSBT News, witnesses saw 52-year-old Jon Hanley antagonizing a German shepherd named Major before shooting the dog between the eyes on Saturday.

Major was loose at the time – he had escaped from his owner’s parked car and still had his leash attached. Chief Patrick Howard, with the Lakeville Police Department, described the aftermath of the shooting, “One of the first things I noticed was the amount of blood everywhere. He was shot perfectly right between the eyes.”

Major was sitting by his owner when Hanley opened fire – the woman reportedly screamed for Hanley to stop, but he didn’t. Miraculously, Major survived the shooting and he was transported to a veterinary hospital by the police chief for emergency care. Chief Howard told WSBT News, “First thing I did, was went to the dog and got the dog loaded up into my police vehicle. He was still alert and conscious at the time.”

The accused shooter was arrested and his is facing a charge of animal cruelty – the man has already been released from jail. According to the authorities, Hanley was not bitten by Major.

    Put a freaking bullet between this psychos eyes. If that was here in TN where me and more than half the state carry guns, this psycho would be dead. Shoot first if he’s still breathing shoot again then ask questions. My animals are my kids and if anyone tries to hurt them they’ll be sorry.

    This is unbelievable! The dog obviously wasn’t doing anything to this POS why the need to shoot Major? And what kind of justice is this? The POS has already been released from jail after discharging a weapon in a store parking lot “on a promise to appear”. Major’s owner is lucky she wasn’t killed! What is wrong with this world! I would be hiring a good lawyer and pursuing a civil case against this POS for at least the vet bills!

    Already released, eh? Give me an AK-47 and two minutes , and I’d shoot the ugly SOB without a qualms of conscience. He’s probably a member in good standing of the NRA.

    Lock this scumbag up and make him pay for all the vet bills. He is a useless, worthless, scum bucket who deserves no mercy, kindness or consideration ever.

    Bastard should still be in jail! While he’s out, I truly hope some wise citizen shoots this POS between the eyes, which is EXACTLY what he deserves. No conscience nor anything live showing in his dead eyes. NO reason for him to keep on walking around where he can continue to hurt the innocent.

    And as par for the course, this hunk of maggot shit is already out of jail because the judicial system SUCKS! So hopefully there is some street justice for Major – like a drive by and Hanley ends up dying in a filthy trash filled gutter – exactly where he belongs. Hope Major fully recovers.
