Oklahoma teen who posted photo of dead pit bull to Facebook, lawyers up.
Posted by: N Gilbert
"Caisen Green, the 18-year-old Cherokee County, Okla., teen who allegedly killed a pit bull and then boasted about it on Facebook, has obtained a lawyer."
"According to Monday's KJRH News, Green's family hired a lawyer after the Facebook photo, including Green's comments, "For all you pit lovers out there. Here's what happens when one shows up around my house," went viral.
Following the bold statement and disturbing photo, Green became the target of a police investigation, and he received multiple death threats.
The teen's father claims that the dog was shot by Caisen in an effort to "protect his younger siblings."
Phone calls demanding an investigation poured in to Cherokee County Undersheriff J.C. Chennault after the photo began circulating online.
Chennault may file animal cruelty charges against Green, but he will be meeting with the family, and the lawyer, on Tuesday, first. Green may be able to avoid any charges if he can convince the authorities that the dog posed a threat to either Green's family, or their livestock.
The dog's body was burned after the photo was taken, and according to the sheriff, it will not be recovered."
Naturally the parents are going to claim that the dog was shot in order to protect the younger sibling. That's a cop out excuse. If that was the case, then WHY ON EARTH did this little piece of scum post it to Facebook with such a heartless title? Figure it out people, this kid (whom we stand corrected is NOT a minor) has the mindset of a sociopath and the beginnings of a serial killer. Killing ANY animal to protect yourself or a loved one is one thing, but to brag about it in such a disgusting way, I'm sorry, I don't buy it. He's not sorry for what he did and could care less the dog is dead and that someone has lost a furry family member. You wanted attention Mr. Green, you've got it now, and I assure you, in the animal advocacy world, the attention IS NOT good!
