Man Accused Of Torturing Dog To Death With Medication, Plastic Bag, And A Sledgehammer

Chattanooga, TN – A Tennessee man is accused of killing his own dog in a ghastly manner. The police charged 41-year-old Michael Justin Wall, of 9404 Seasons Dr., with aggravated animal cruelty after he gave his dog Tylenol PM, attempted to suffocate his pet with a plastic bag, and finally, bludgeoned the dog to death with a sledgehammer earlier this month.

In the early morning hours of January 4, neighbors contacted the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office after hearing what they believed were “muffled gunshots,” coming from Wall’s residence. Responding deputies found a dog in a pool of blood on Wall’s back deck, next to a plastic bag and a bloodied sledgehammer.

When deputies questioned Wall, he admitted that he had tried to kill his dog because it was having seizures. He explained that he first tried the Tylenol, but when that did not work, he tried using a plastic bag to suffocate his pet. After that method also failed, he used a sledgehammer to repeatedly bludgeon the dog.

Deputies arrested Wall and took him to the Silverdale Detention Center on a charge of aggravated animal cruelty.

Wall’s dog did not die peacefully. By Michael Wall’s own admission, the dog was poisoned, suffocated, and bludgeoned before finally dying. It is heartbreaking to know that Wall’s dog suffered horribly, at the hands of the person who should have protected him from harm.

Please add your name to the petition today. Your signatures (and comments) will be sent to Neal Pinkston, District Attorney General of Hamilton County, TN, along with our demand that Wall be given the longest sentence possible for his charge, in addition to being prohibited from owning animals in the future.
