A man who slashed the throat of a golden retriever in Henry County, Georgia, on Sunday night will not face any charges. As reported by WSBTV News, the dog, named Nala, was not on leash and the man who killed her told the authorities that he felt threatened when she ran towards him.
Henry County Animal Control has stated that their “hands are tied” when it comes to charges because Nala was not leashed at the time. Nala has no prior record of attacking anyone and she leaves behind a litter of three-week-old puppies.
Her owner, who asked not to be identified, told the news agency:
“My dog ran out, barked abruptly at him, and he pulled a knife and slit the dogs throat and left her die and continued walking down the neighborhood.”
Nala had been in the garage with her puppies when she ran up to the man, who was walking by with his wife. Nala’s owner had left the garage door cracked because she had never posed a problem to anyone before. Her owner stated, “If I ever thought she was going to bite, she would never have been able to get in the front yard. There’s no justice for my dog.”
