Revelations behind killing of 19 dogs in Georgia

December 11, 2010

Burke County, GA – The man responsible for the death of 19 dogs found in Burke County earlier this month is revealing more about the grotesque incident.

According to an article shared yesterday in the Swainsboro True Citizen News, the man, Charles Frank Strother, claims that Wadley police had given him permission to shoot the dogs.

In his statement, he claims that he had to shoot the dogs because they had become vicious. He alleges that a protective mother started fighting with other dogs, and that they “got the taste of blood” and that it rendered them “no good”. The dogs have been determined to be all of the same breed – Labrador/Chow mixes.

Police had actually responded to Strother’s residence after receiving reports of gun shots fired. Strothers apparently asked the responding  officer to shoot the dogs and he was told that police were not permitted to kill the animals, but that he could “take whatever action was necessary”.

Shockingly, Strothers only faces charges for illegally dumping the 19 dog bodies, and a tarp. He faces no animal cruelty charges. Burke County police have stated that they have no jurisdiction over the man because the killings occurred in nearby Jefferson County.

A logical person has to ponder if there is more to this story.

  • What are the conditions that the dogs were kept at on Mr. Strother’s property?
  • Is he operating a puppy mill type of operation?
  • What type of housing did the dogs have and how did that housing allow for a protective mother to feel defensive enough to begin fighting with other dogs?
  • Are there dogs remaining at the property (who) are being mistreated?

The following are contacts for officials in Jefferson County, including this link to a full government listing:

Will this man be investigated further? Will he be allowed to continue breeding and to remedy “problem” dogs in this method? Is it humane to shoot dogs for fighting?

    this is an example of ignorance and gross insensitivity. these dogs were treated as inanimate, insensate objects, by someone who should never be allowed the priviledge to possess any other animals.

    This man, and I guess his lying wife should be shot. They are obviously scum of the earth. Trigger happy comes to mind.
