This is really quite a sad story. Highly decorated US navy SEAL, Marcus Luttrell, was given a dog when he returned from Afghanistan to "help him heal". When he found his dog shot dead outside his home, he helped police capture the suspects after a high-speed chase through three counties!
Texas war hero helps chase down suspects for police after his dog is shot
Here's a quote that I particularly like:
"Luttrell [war hero owner] tells the Houston Chronicle that he warned the 911 operator to "get somebody out here because if I catch them I'm going to kill them.""
I wonder what he did to the guys when he did catch them ... they don't say in the article. Hate to say it, but I hope he beat the living daylights out of them ... is that sadistic? Sorry - guess I've had a rough few weeks.
