Men Face Charges for Dog’s Murder

Published by PETA.

When Glenn Beck broke the story of retired Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, whose dog, DASY, was allegedly shot and killed by two men Beck appropriately refers to as “Dirtbag 1” and “Dirtbag 2,” PETA’s Cruelty Investigations Department leapt into action. PETA immediately offered a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and, if it proves warranted, the conviction of Michael Edmonds, a fugitive, and one of the men accused of the heinous act.

Shortly after we sent our letter to the Texas Rangers’ office, Edmonds reportedly turned himself in. And we’re happy to announce that he, along with Alfonso Hernandez, is now facing cruelty charges for DASY’s death. We understand that both of these monsters are also under investigation for other animal killings in Walker County, Texas.

Watch the moving clip from Glenn Beck’s second broadcast on this tragic issue and remember to report cruelty to animals to your local law-enforcement agency—and let us know if the agency doesn’t take action or you need help.
