Update on Hank’s post last week about the brutal murder of Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell’s dog, DASY.

Former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell’s therapy dog was brutally killed by four young men last week. According to Luttrell, the criminals were cruising his county in Texas shooting dogs for fun when he heard a shot in his front yard and found his dog, Dasy, murdered. Luttrell chased the criminals through four counties and brought them to justice with the help of the local sheriff’s department. Luttrell witnessed these criminals laughing and joking about their killing rampage, even after they had been apprehended by authorities.
Luttrell’s dog, Dasy, was no ordinary pet. Luttrell is called the “Lone Survivor” because he was the only survivor from a 2005 battle that caused the largest loss of life in SEAL history. Each letter in Dasy’s name represents his fallen SEAL team members. Luttrell was given Dasy during his recovery period after sustaining horrific wounds. Luttrell said, “I consider that dog just like a daughter to me.”
Please sign this petition and help SPCA International tell the Texas courts to prosecute these cruel criminals to the fullest extent of the law. “You need to be held accountable for what you do,” pleaded Luttrell on Glenn Beck’s Fox News show.

Do it for Marcus and DASY.
