Billy, The Dead Dog
updated: Jan 22, 2013, 4:18 PM

By Dan Seibert

After reading the Indie article by Ray Ford I emailed the owner of the dog in question, Billy. I've known Billy for several years and was heartbroken when I learned that he had been shot. I would describe Billy as a rag-a muffin type of dog. Sweet natured and friendly.

The Indie story paints a picture of a 65 pound beast that is threatening a man with a gun. Here are some photos of Billy. He's more like 45 pounds. With his best pal Macaroni.

People can draw their own conclusions about threat level from this dog.

The owner said this, "He maybe barked for 5-10 seconds before being shot and I was 20 yards behind him. There were two hunters, 6 foot 230 was the size of the dude who shot him. Hunters were not from SB but from Brea in LA."
