Owner hoping to bring more awareness to animal cruelty

An Eagle Rock woman is speaking out on behalf of her family, which is in mourning after their three labradors were allegedly shot to death and mutilated while playing in Table Rock Lake about half a mile from their home.

Dani Johnson, of Eagle Rock, said her two black labs, Gus, 7, and Tug, 11 months, as well as her yellow lab, Kaycee, 3, were shot to death last week, and she is looking for answers.

“We let them out [on March 13] and they didn’t come back,” she said. “I was up all night calling for them but could not find them. I called the vet office here, and no more than five minutes later, I got a phone call from a person with a really callous voice saying he heard I had called about the dogs. I was happy and thought he’d found them, but the next thing he said was, ‘I just called to let you know that your dogs were shot to death and will not be coming home tonight.'”

Johnson said her husband and his brother went to the vet clinic and were directed to the Paradise Cove Camping Resort.

“They went and knocked on the door there but no one answered, so they went to some neighbors and started asking about the dogs,” Johnson said. “A nice couple answered and immediately cried, realizing we were their owners. They told us how beautiful, healthy, friendly and happy they were and how much they’d enjoyed watching them play. They were kind people, and they were horrified. The neighbors said they were watching the labs playing in the lake when a lady drove a golf cart down to them and began shooting them.

“She didn’t kill them, and the dogs were tortured. They were deliberately doing gut shots, and the people who saw it said they shot Gus repeatedly in his private parts.”
