“I killed my first dog,” allegedly yelled Seth Estrada of Hawthorne, CA after stomping a small white poodle named Rain to death.
The poodle belonged to the Hayes family, who had just asked Estrada to move out of their house. This case was reportedly just one in a string of violence -- according to Chuck Hayes, Estrada had killed three other animals, including breaking a cat's neck and throwing the helpless animal from a 2nd-story window.
Before killing Rain, Estrada was heard viciously punching the tiny dog, who yelped in pain with each blow.
Rain's killer demonstrates a frightening pattern of violence, making him a danger to both animals and humans. He has been charged with animal cruelty, and it is vital that the case be taken with the seriousness it deserves.
Sign the petition to urge Hawthorne prosecutors to make the sentence fit the crimes, and ensure that this man is never allowed to share a home with an animal again.
