K9s United started this petition to K9s United K9s United Debbie Johnson and 1 other
FL current law states: Any person who intentionally and knowingly, without lawful cause or justification, causes great bodily harm, permanent disability, or death to, or uses a deadly weapon upon, a police dog, fire dog, SAR dog, or police horse commits a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084.
This is unacceptable. Law Enforcement Canines are an extension of their human partners and put themselves in danger in place of their handlers, which sometimes leads to their death or serious injury. We need to be their voice and honor them in their ultimate sacrifice.
We feel it should at least be a second degree felony if you intentionally kill a law enforcement canine.
If you agree, please sign the petition. #RIPK9Baron #RIPK9Fang
