Please don’t kill the family pet for your dinner thank you very much!
GULF BREEZE, Fla.Christa and Bria Caponi were left heartbroken after discovering that their
delicious pet, a 30 pound turkey, Tom was killed by two local teenagers who had admitted killing the turkey with a bow and arrow with the intent of eating it for their Thanksgiving dinner.
The teenagers, 19 year old Joshua Anderson and 18 year old Jacob Provo were apprehended after admitting that they had entered the turkey’s pen with a bow and arrow after family surveillance video was viewed.. At the time of their arrest they were on their way to skin the bird.
Explained Mrs Caponi: ‘He was so friendly, My husband and I are big animal lovers and our animals are very close to us. He was a family pet. It was like having a normal family dog. It’s been a very rough two days.’
Since the teenager’s arrest they have been charged with armed burglary, armed trespassing, theft of livestock and animal cruelty. At present the teenagers remain in Santa Rosa County jail unable to make their whopping $57 000 bail.
