DALLAS, TX (WCMH) – A couple in Texas says their dog was killed because they displayed a Hillary Clinton sign in their front yard.
“Hillary Clinton I’m with her,” Matt Steadman tells KTVT.
But Steadman and his wife say their political stance has them under attack in their own community.
First they say their signs begin to disappear.
“I just kind of thought oh well the third sign is still there no big deal,” says Steadman.
But then an ominous note was left under their doormat and then their vehicle was vandalized.
Then their dog Abby got sick.
“She started tremoring and she started shaking called Beth around 4 and said I think somethings wrong with Abby,” Steadman tells KTVT.
Abby died a few days later and the family vet says it was from ingesting a neuro toxin.
“No other reason I mean this is our front yard and we don’t have any enemies. We’re not the enemy type,” says Steadman.
Police have talked to the couple but there’s no official investigation into the dog’s death. Another sign was also donated to the family, but they say they are going to keep this one inside for now.
“For now I’m just going to kind of let the waters settle.”
