Man murdered trying to stop puppy abuse

Man who tried to stop puppy from being abused was murdered by alleged abuser

A Tennessee man who tried to intervene on behalf of a puppy who he believed was being abused was murdered by the pup’s alleged abuser. According to People, 37-year-old Robert “Rob” Wilson lost his life on July 27 when he confronted 35-year-old Donavous Jerome Drennon, the man who was allegedly holding a puppy by its throat.

What happened?

The terrible scene unfolded at an Uptown Suites hotel in Smyrna. In a phone call, Wilson told his fiancée, Sue Hoskins. that he could see a man holding a Yorkshire puppy by its neck. Smyrna Police Sgt. Bobby Gibson told People:

Mr. Wilson said something to Mr. Drennon about how he was carrying his dog, and as a result, somehow it ended up with Drennon pulling a gun and shooting Mr. Wilson

The hero was a dog lover

The obituary for the heroic man who spoke up on behalf of the puppy reads:

Robert “Rob” Jonathan Wilson, age 37, was senselessly murdered Friday, July 27, 2018 trying to protect an animal from cruelty.

The warrant

After a warrant was issued for Drennon’s arrest, he turned himself in. He was taken to the Rutherford County Jail on a charge of first-degree murder. The puppy was taken in at Rutherford County PAWS – staff located the pup’s owner and returned him (or her).

    And we wonder why more people won’t stand up to these abusers in defense of an animal. The “animal” abuser will pull a gun and shoot you, I suppose it’s his “2nd Amendment” right! This is disgusting, I hope and pray they put this POS away for a long time. My condolences to his fiance and his family, the world lost a good man!

    Animal lover Robert “Rob” Wilson lost his life on July 27 when he confronted the vile and evil 35-year-old psychopathic depraved animal torturing monster Donavous Jerome Drennon, the pos lowlife monster who was allegedly holding an innocent and helpless puppy by its throat.
    This animal torturing murdering monster Donavous Jerome Drennon must be put to death. This psycho monster murdered an animal loving compassionate Robert (Rob) Wilson deliberately taking his precious life. Donavous Jerome Drennon must be put to death. He must not be allowed to live and breath our air. Eradicate the murdering psycho vile and evil bastard from our planet. Slowly.

    RIP Rob. And my deepest sympathy to your fiancee and family.

    Another waste of space who will now face the punishment he so well deserves – abusing a puppy would have given him a slap on the wrist – but since this brain dead scum decided to murder a good Samaritan who tried to intervene Drennon will pay a heavy price for killing Mr. Wilson. Drennon should be hogtied and dumped in the nearest landfill with the rest of the trash – he has forfeited his right to breathe.

    Well maybe since this worthless, useless excuse for a human committed MURDER he will be held accountable?? Maybe..or will the courts excuse it because the guy he murdered was defending an animal….. which so far NO COURTS seem to stand up for!!
