Western Hills Elementary in TISD had a drive ¨bye" parade for our students. https://www.facebook.com/Brittanyhitchens/videos/10157561292223920/
UPDATE: what a day.... Today started out with all of us waiting outside the Animal Control office to speak with AC Officer T. Moore. I was either going to stop him at his truck as he was leaving or see him in the office. Either way he WAS going to hear me, and oh did he! Right in the middle of the lobby was where he wanted to talk to us and he probably regretted that decision. He was very rude and said he didn't have much knowledge of this case even though he was the one who spoke to the neighbor yesterday! I laid out all the pictures I had printed out of the fence and my poor Memphy. Before it was over, I was yelling, the supervisor was the one talking to me (Amanda R. Gilbert) and I announced to the whole place that just an FYI if you live in killeen, your neighbor can have a murderous dog that can kill your sweet animal and Killeen will do NOTHING about it! She agreed to look into if the dog is aggressive, but that still doesn't get the dog taken away or put down. She even said that if the dog KILLED one of my kids, they STILL wouldn't put it down!!!!!!!!!!! What???? Wow. Killeen, you really have this messed up! She said she would be coming back to my house today to actually look at the fence on my side. She FINALLY got here after 4pm and after me calling the office SEVERAL times. She showed up with T. Moore and 2 police officers. She took some pictures and will "look" into it. Yeah, thanks lady. She was very rude and condescending. There was no compassion at all, not even for my children who had to witness this. I made a post and posted it to several local groups, next door, and all the waco and austin TV stations. If you feel so inclined to call the animal control office and push this with me it would be very helpful or to even share my posts. Also tag the news stations that would be helpful. This is ridiculous, my dog should be laying here next to me, not buried in the yard. He didn't deserve to be mauled while in his own backyard. How is this ok?????? Killeen you need to do better than this!!!!!!! My kids deserve to be safe in their backyard!!!
This happened to my sister. How is it considered okay for a dog to violently kill another dog? Especially when it occurred in the deceased dog's yard? This was my sister's dog. She detailed what happened here. I will not post the horrible images of his little mangled body as I cannot bear to look at them again. My dog was viciously attacked and killed by my neighbor's pit bulls!! 1309 Waterford Dr. across Stan Schlueter from Lions Club Park!!!!! The man that lives at that address is my neighbor. He teaches his pit bulls to be aggressive!!! On Thursday, I was on my way home, and my kids called me to tell me that the neighbor's dog pushed his head through our fence, and grabbed my dog by the neck, ripping his neck open and killed my sweet baby boy. My miniature schnauzer didn't stand a chance against 2 pit bulls! The man wasn't even home. When he did get home, he jumped out of his car screaming calling us "idiots" and laughing at the fact we just lost our baby. This man and his dogs are monsters! To make matters worse, Animal Control is doing NOTHING about it!!!!! They aren't putting the dogs down, they aren't even confiscating the animals. NOTHING!!! I have 3 children and another dog that use my backyard! I am scared for my family's safety. Please beware of this man. My whole family is devastated and my kids are especially crushed because they saw the whole thing happen. They witnessed their baby get ripped apart by these viscious animals and Killeen is doing nothing. 1309 Waterford Dr.! WARNING graphic photo in comments!
