Brett Butler

Dyersburg, Tennessee - 44-year-old accused of shooting and killing a 10-month-old German Shepherd.

Reports state the dog entered Butler's property and killed chickens. The dog then knocked down Butler's wife when she tried to make it leave.

The dog ran from Butler's property when he fired a shotgun at the dog and missed. Butler then chased the dog down in his truck, shooting at it twice and killing it.

Butler was charged with aggravated cruelty to animals and reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon, both felonies.


  1. The owner of the dog was warned about his dog killing other small pets. A friend's house dog got shook to death in front of dozen people by his first German Shepherd. It killed another dog that belonged to one of his renters.I called him about it killing my daughter's cat and the arrogant ass said " not my dog he's been here all day". My wife came in screaming telling me the dog was killing calves but the calves belonged to the dog owner. I called him and told him what was happening. He chased that dog all over the pasture trying to get it to quit. He had to run over it with his ATV to get it to stop. He called me latter saying he was going to shoot it. Then it showed up a few weeks latter killing our chickens and my wife couldn't get it to quit. The dog owner's son in-law is the Sheriff. They didn't mention in their report the previous attacks. Thank God for smart phones!!! When it went to court they had to explain the previous attacks and this is what they said" that was a different dog and they killed the dog that killed their calves " Can u say DISMISSED? I hate what had to be done but the owner of the dog was the only person breaking the law. I'm going to protect my property and family. They killed a dog and responsible for what happened to this dog. I live a mile from them and my driveway is a half mile long. They say good fences make for good neighbors.

  2. I wanted to mention when they said I missed it the first time, they were WRONG!! I did hit it the first time. And the cops know this. Cops were on audio and lied in the report.Investigator said he didn't blame me. But the Sheriff made sure the report was doctored and got caught. He even told to my face he helped bury the first dog they shoot and killed.

  3. I have the courts document to prove it was dismissed. Now how do I get this taken down. It is hard enough to find a job much worse when I have this hanging over my head. All employers google my name and the first thing they see is this. My family has been through enough of harassment!!!!!!!!
