Autumn Steele ~Petition to "Save Sammy" ~ Based on witness reports, the current understanding is that the Steele family dog Sammy was approaching Jesse Hill, and that Hill was attempting to kill Sammy when he missed and hit Autumn, instead. There is no explanation as to why Hill felt the imminent need to use a firearm as the first and only means of controlling Sammy, particularly given the fact that a 4-year-old child was right next to Autumn during the shooting. It is by providence alone that the two bullets Hill fired struck Autumn and Sammy and not the infant child in the line of fire. Following the shooting, police took Sammy into custody and has refused to return the dog to the Steele family, compounding the tragedy for those who survive Autumn. This month, on February 25th at 6:30 p.m., a hearing is scheduled before the Burlington, IA Animal Hearing Board to determine Sammy's fate. The hearing will be held at: " Burlington Iowa City Hall 400 Washington St Burlington, IA 52601 I am hoping by getting enough signatures and by bringing awareness to this tragedy we can save a life! Lets work together and get the attention of the Burlington Iowa Animal Hearing Board and let them know we want them to release "Sammy" the dog and let him go home to his family in Georgia. The family has suffered enough tragedy please help us save Sammy!
