I belong to a bunch of dog communities on LJ and was shocked to learn that a pitbull had been murdered. Shot to death on their own property by a neighbor who'd apparently let the pitbull hysteria get to him.
Ruby was on her own property just let out to go pee. Facts indicate that she was standing still which is how the man managed to shoot her right between the eyes from a good distance away. Ruby's "sister", Corona was shot in the leg and is thought to have been running away from the guy once Ruby was killed.
Just utterly horrific and heartbreaking all around. To learn more, go visit the website that was set up in Ruby's Honor for the purpose of bringing her killer to justice: Murdered Angel
