Baby donkey CRACKERS
newbie
Posted by Alaina Browning (+8) 13 years ago
It is great to see so many people are angered by the senseless act of killing innocent animals. These donkey's belonged to my parents and were a great joy to our families. Five are dead, one is crippled and may not make it(She is not able to get up). One six month old baby and last but not least a two weak old baby that my parents are bottle raising that has now been named by the grandkids CRACKERS. She was only a weak old when the shooting occurred and almost died after her mother who lived for a day died. After a trip to the vet and a carefully monitored diet of foal replacer she is for now starting to ralley. We hope that she makes it. She is the one bright spot in this trajedy. If anyone is interested we could update them on her.

She sounds adorable and my condolences for your terrible loss. We have donkeys as well and I cannot imagine the heartache your family is going thru. Our donkeys are older and have been with us since birth, so I understand.

Just thought I would give everyone a update on our baby donkey crackers. She is a very adorable and precious little animal. She is doing alot better. She is starting to run around and buck, and bray when my dad leaves in the morning. She has really helped my family get over what has happened. She has tons of little kids playing with her. She is a very loved little animal. She has had a few tours of the local grade schools, grandkids idea of course. We are still feeding her every four hours, so she needs to be kept close. But soon we will need to move her back with the other two donkeys. Milly the donkey that was shot is now able to get up and stand thankfully.
I will update again soon. Thanks from the Loomis family.

The Loomis family would like to thank all of the people who have reached out to us since this terrible act was committed. It has helped us get thru this knowing there are good people in our community. Thank you to all the caring people who sent cards and donated money for milk for baby crackers. Also to all the kind people who donated money to Crime Stoppers to help catch these evil people, and put them where they belong. We have heard the reward is up to 3,750 dollars. So please if you know anything call in, and have peace knowing you did the right thing. Thank you to the Miles City community.

Thanks from the Loomis family

Baby crackers is stronger than ever and doing wonderful. She is growing like a weed. Soon as I said before we will need to move her over to be with the other donkeys. All of the grandkids will miss having her in their grandparent's yard, but I guess she will be a big girl soon. We are still bottle feeding her every four hours, but she is starting to drink two bottle's instead of one every feeding. I will update again soon. Thanks from the Loomis family!!!!!

Just wanted to update every one on Milly the donkey who was shot multiple times. She is able to stand up, but she cant put any weight on her leg. My dad does not know if she will ever be able to use it again properly. At least she can stand and walk a little, but she should not of went thru all she did. So again we are pleading with anyone who knows anything please come forward. Justice needs to be done for the defenseless animals in the world.

Thanks the Loomis family

Just wanted to let everyone know the donkeys are all still doing pretty good. We did have a scare with crackers over last weekend she got the scours. Luckily we got ahold of the vet and he said to give her pepto Bismal. It seems to have worked and she is doing great. We would have been so sad to lose her after we have had her this long. She is still in the yard, we cant quite seem to put her over with the other donkeys yet. She has been such a wonderful thing for our family. Loomis Family

Hi All. Crackers is doing great. She has gotten so big. As I mentioned before we are still thinking about moving her over with the other donkeys. We will do it soon, but our family has gotten so used to her being in my parent's back yard it will be hard. She play's kinda ruff so the grandkid's have to be careful. I am glad that the community is still thinking of crackers. We are still urging anyone that knows anything PLEASE come forward.

Hi all. Good news the police contacted my parents and said they have three people in custody for the donkey killings. They are supposed to contact them this week and tell them the names. Then they will put a write up about it in the paper. Our family is very relieved that they are where they should be and their will be some justice for our beloved donkeys. So everyone hold tight and we will see what kind of people go around, and shoot innocent donkeys. Thank you to all the people that cared about our donkeys. Thanks from the Loomis Family.

Posted by Chuck Schott (+1284) 13 years ago
I too am glad that these people have been caught and will have to pay for their actions. What is proper punishment for this crime? I don't know but certainly restitution to the owners will have to figure in along with charges that should carry some jail time.

I still can't help but feel this was a drinking or drug related crime by a bunch of young men who have already regretted their actions. So before we take up ropes for a hanging let's wait and see how the facts come down in this case and go from there. I can't imagine an excuse for what they have done but having been young and dumb once I can think of some reasons for this happening.

I hope we hear somthing soon.

Central Texas men charged with mutilation of pet donkeys (01/30)
The indictment charges Erik Hancock, 19, and Michael Johnsted, 20, with cruelty to animals.

The disturbing case happened in December. Both men are accused of mutilating two pregnant miniature donkeys in a families pasture in Northwest Travis County -- just west of Leander.

One of the animals was beheaded and gutted.

The other person was a juvenile named [DELETED]. He is not in custody yet because he is not 18 for another month. Does not sound like they are going to be able to prosecute them as adults.

I do think they should be punished for their crime, don't get me wrong.

Ever shoot a rabbit? A prairie dog? A small bird? Is that life less meaningful than a donkey's?

Ever shoot a deer or other game animal and leave it behind because it was too small or you were a dumb kid shooting it out-of-season or without a tag? Jail time for you?

What is the criteria here?

Dave, thank you for a wake-up call. You jogged my memory. When I was 16, I was with a group of friends, at night, that went owl shooting. I didn't shoot (wouldn't know how) BUT I was there with them. The owls did not deserve that. It was mean, cruel....you name it. I guess when you think of an animal, like the donkeys, or dogs, etc., that come up to you with no fear and yet are injured or killed, it makes your heart hurt. Thanks for your response. Maybe a lot of people will read it and better understand what you were saying in the first place. Thanks. VictoriaLynn

Posted by Jess Bradley (+202) 13 years ago
These weren't just wild animals at large, such as rabbits or prairie dogs, they were someone's pet's on private property. IMO there is no comparison here.
And as far as the other comparison made, a decent hunter and gun owner does not abuse the priveledge by leaving behind a kill just because they are not 'satisfied" with it. And if a "dumb kid" is shooting out of season or with out a tag, then yes he should face consequences as this is illegal.
Mistreating animals is wrong, no matter what the animal! I do beleive in hunting, I don't however consider it a "sport".

Three charged in local donkey shootings
By Elaine Forman
Two men and one boy, all of Miles City, are facing multiple felony charges in the April shooting deaths of five donkeys and the shooting of a sixth donkey that survived.
Corey Knippel, 18, and James Cranford, 19, are in the Custer County Jail. (Deleted) is not in jail because he is a minor. He will turn 18 next month.
Knippel has been in jail since May on other charges. Cranford was arrested Friday, according to Custer County Sheriff Tony Harbaugh.
Knippel was 17 at the time of the shooting, so he and (Deleted)are being charged in Youth Court. Each is named as "a delinquent youth and a serious juvenile offender" in the court records.
Cranford is charged as an adult in District Court.
The six donkeys belonging to Bonnie and Garry Loomis were shot in a field on or about April 19 along Sheffield Road. Four were found dead April 20, and a fifth one died the following day. One had recently given birth to a filly, and another was about to give birth.
All three males are charged with six felony counts of aggravated animal cruelty by accountability for allegedly shooting the animals, and six counts of criminal mischief by accountability for allegedly killing or injuring the animals.
In District Court, the maximum penalty of aggravated animal cruelty by accountability is two years in prison and a $2,500 fine. Criminal mischief by accountability can bring 10 years in prison and a $50,000 fine.
The state has requested the court designate the case as "an extended jurisdiction juvenile prosecution," which would carry the same penalties as in District Court.
In Youth Court, the maximum penalty is commitment to the Department of Corrections until the age of 18, and if the case is transferred to District Court, supervision to the adult division of the Department of Corrections until 25 years old.
Cranford also is charged with a misdemeanor count of obstructing a peace officer for allegedly lying to Undersheriff Pat Roos during the investigation.
Obstructing can bring the maximum penalty of six months in jail and a $500 fine.
Harbaugh said they received "a lot of calls" and "a lot of Crimestoppers" tips including "one that was critical." He wants to thank all those who called.
Shortly after the incident, donations to the Crimestoppers fund for the donkey case were just under $3,800. Miles City Police Sgt. Mark Reddick could not be reached by presstime for a current figure, or to comment any whether any of the fund will be distributed.
The donkey investigation was aided by the livestock inspectors and by the Miles City Police Department, both of whom "lent us a big hand" in the investigation, Harbaugh said.
"There were a lot of man hours and diligent police work that went into this. The investigation was lengthy," he said.
He added that the investigation is ongoing.

Dave is right on for a change . Whatever the punishment the ages of the boys must be taken in to account, any punishment that will cripple them for the entirety of their lives would be over the top. The law allows for a deferred imposition of sentence for this kind of thing. For example the boys could be found guilty of felony destruction of property with a suspended sentence, restitution and what ever else the court feels is proper. Then after a period of say five years passes and the boys have complied with all conditions of the deferment then the charges are dropped from their records.To my way of thinking this would be a fair way to handle this type of case. If they are indeed "bad eggs" they will never make the deferment period and the charges revert to permanent.

I don't know MikeyD. MikeyD mentioned that Erik "is doing great" and since the two Texas "men" who were indicted for mutilating donkeys were named Erik Hancock and Michael Johnsted, I inferred that MikeyD was Michael Johnsted.

MikeyD said he got $90K out of the deal tax free so that made me wonder how that could be. Back in 2008 when this Texas donkey slaying indictment was going down:

Combinations of re-up bonuses and kickers may exceed $90,000 - for instance, a qualified recon sergeant who agrees to stay for two more years would technically qualify for $99,500 - but nothing more than $90,000 will be paid out.

http://www.marinecorpstim...s_102008w/

More:

http://www.marinecorpstim...es_072008/


Re-Enlistment bonuses are subject to Federal income tax, except when the Soldier re-enlists in a designated combat zone. In that case, the entire amount of the re-enlistment bonus is tax-free.

http://usmilitary.about.c...tbonus.htm

And, finally, Michael Johnsted isn't a really common name but I'm sure there are a few of them out there. One of them, Michael D. Johnsted, is apparently a sergeant in Marine 1st Recon Battalion Company B who is listed as having re-enlisted here in this December 2008 "Raider Report" newsletter and who was deployed in Iraq at the time.

http://www.i-mef.usmc.mil...t(Dec).pdf

According to this September 2008 "Raider Report" this company had been in the states for 7 months doing training (including Cpl Michael Johnsted) and was now preparing for deployment.

http://www.1streconbnasso...0email.pdf

Now, I'm not saying that THIS Michael Johnsted is THE donkey slayer. I'm just saying that it appears that A Michael D. Johnsted re-enlisted in the Marines in late 2008 as a sergeant in a recon unit deployed in a combat zone. That is all.

Those bonuses are very job specific and cover only a small percentage of Marines. I guess it is possible. What seems even a smaller percentage is the Marine Corps tolerating that kind of behavior. Recon is even more stringent. I noticed that some of those bonuses required ten or more years of experience. The two were 19 and 20 at the time of the incident and I don't think degenerates like that could come close to Marine Recon Sgt. material.

A sociopath really, truly does not understand that they are mentally disturbed. They cannot understand why their behavior is upsetting to others since it is not upsetting to them. They have no empathy because they truly don't understand that other people are "conscious." They alone exist.

This particular sociopath seems to crave our admiration for his mental illness and, since he wants attention and approval, I imagine his sociopathic behavior will progress to true psychopathic behavior. He will increase his acts of violence as he desperately tries to understand why he is so different from normal people.

I will bet dollars to doughnuts he is either involved in a murder or some other major felony as he desperately tries to feel something that he is, sadly, incapable of feeling or understanding.

Howdy, I didn't read it all but sure looks like it fits him to a T. How sick coming back 3 years later and pretty much bragging about doing such an asinine thing. What did the donkeys or the owners ever do to him?

I think you folks calling him a psycho/sociopath are getting carried away, just like when you said the same thing about the kid who threw the cat in the fire more recently. You just have to realize what it's like being a teenage boy, especially one without a good male role model. You're supposed to be becoming a man, but most kids have no idea what that really means, especially without a Dad or a coach who can help them express aggression and sexual frustration in a positive way. Some boys become bullies, some vandalize things, some commit violence against animals. It's just an expression of desire for power by someone who doesn't really have any yet.

Just off the top of my head I can remember half a dozen boys that I knew personally in high school that abused/mutilated animals. None of them grew up to be psychopaths and I think that all of them would probably feel bad about what they did if they thought about it much now. I know that some serial killers and real sociopaths start out abusing animals, but for every one of those, there's thousands of dumb ass teenagers that will grow out of it.

All that said, yes, coming back here to rub people's noses in something that any decent person would realize that he should be apologizing for is a childish act.

Now the reason i come on here and leave comments is cause of what ya'll say. 1 cause i think its interesting what ya'll have to say and 2 im in afghanistan and its boring as hell here lol.

Now how is my comment on 7/19/2011 bragging about what i did? i just simply responded to everyone, said what happened to erik and how im doing. i didnt call myself world famous, and i was joking in response to Buck saying it with the signature comment.

Oh Amorette i dont crave any attention and im not going to "increase" any acts of violence. All this is a conversation, and ya'll are the ones being aggressive.

You guys can judge and call me a psycho/sociopath, honestly you guys dont know anything about me and what im really like. And yes they didnt do anything to me, it was just a really drunk and dumb night. That i wish never happened but it did so oh well.

I like levi he's cool lol.

Well at least you are realizing that it was a dumb night. Have you ever apologized to the owners? I think that would be a good first step to showing that you are a "man".

In researching "Corey Knippel" I found your tragic story. Corey and two others drove into the back of my 1917 Model T on a straight and unobstructed highway last July 3rd 2013. The judge granted me a sum amounting to the damage to my car. My nephew and I spent two days in the hospital and did months of recuperating our health. Corey has failed to make his monthly payments to me and is now sitting in jail in Valley County for Custer County whatever that means. The sheriffs department in Musselshell county was derelict in their duty at the scene of the accident in not checking the boys for intoxication or influence of drugs. The girl in the car was tested at the hospital and was found to be under the influence of marijuana. I don't see this kid as having any chance at rehabilitation. He has lost jobs by not showing up at work and has lied on job applications so there 's very little chance of recuperating our loss. What a waste!
