5th, 6th protests held for dogs killed

Wednesday, May 2, 2018
Protestors held two separate protests at the Barry County Judicial Center, Saturday and Tuesday, calling for action to be taken in the case of three dogs shot to death in Eagle Rock in March. The Saturday protest was the fifth consecutive weekend activists have donned orange for the cause, and Tuesday’s event was the sixth since the dogs were killed. Previous protests have been at the entrance to Paradise Cove Camping Resort, the Barry County Courthouse and in Golden. The Barry County Sheriff’s Office has turned over requests for charges in the case to Barry County Prosecutor Amy Boxx. No action has been taken on the requests. Boxx said last week she is aware of the attention the case has received, and “prosecutorial ethics, longstanding policy and best legal practice mandate that no discussion be had concerning that or any matter pending determination of charges, if any.” Kyle Troutman/editor@monett-times.com
