Dog Suffers After Being Kicked



Bookmark and Share

Brookings police are asking for the public’s help in tracking down the man responsible for kicking and injuring a small dog.

Harley, a 13-year-old Chihuahua, was once a spunky little companion, but according to  his owner Janet Meyer that's not the case anymore. After the incident Harley's life has completely changed.

"I'd been facing my car and I turned around and I saw one of the boy's step off the sidewalk onto the lawn and I saw something move,” said Meyer.

Last Saturday night, Meyers said a group of men were walking by her house on the 900 block of Eighth Street in Brookings when all of a sudden they kicked Harley and then just kept walking.

"I couldn't quite understand what I'd just seen and I knew Harley was over in that area and it hit me-that was my dog flying in the air,” said Meyer.

When Meyer went to pick Harley up, he was out cold. While Meyer cared for the dog, her fiancé, Eddie Brockhoft, took off after the men.

“I chased after them to the corner of the one block. They kind of stopped like they didn't realize anybody was after them and then when they saw someone running after them they ran again to the east,” said Brockhoft.

After the incident, Harley suffered intense seizures. So intense, that Meyer feared her little dog was not going to make it.

“He was just crying and he was in pain and I asked the doctor if he was going to die and he said he might,” said Meyer.

Harley did survive the incident, but suffered severe brain trauma. Meyer fears he will never be the same.

"I am stunned that you would kick my dog, pretend you were coming up to the house to take responsibility and then run away laughing with your friends. I was stunned,” said Meyers.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact the Brookings police department or call crime stoppers at 692-STOP.
