$5000 REWARD FOR PERSON WHO SHOT AND KILLED MANS BEST FRIEND “BEAU”

On February 11, North Montgomery County resident Cass Coroiescu was forced to cut a trip short and return home after he learned his dog was missing. Beau, an 11-year-old Chocolate Lab has been Coroiescu’ s partner for many years. The well-mannered and well-trained dog was almost human. He also was an avid hunter. When Coroiescu returned he searched for hours for his companion. It was the next day seeing buzzards circling a short distance away that he decided to investigate. He started down the pipeline and that’s when he spotted the collar and soon his beloved friend. Beau was dead, shot in the neck with an exit wound to the shoulder. Coroiescu carried his friend home and buried him in the backyard. A tombstone was made to place on the spot. Coroiescu said at times the labs would get out but would return as soon as they were called. Beau would not chase other animals as they were all his friends. He slept with a cat and when he wasn’t sleeping with a cat he would sleep with one of the pigs. Beau was great hunting dog, especially with ducks. Coroiescu said, you could depend on him hearing the shot, seeing the duck fall and bring him to Daddy. Chasing chickens or ducks was not something he would do. Many times, sitting next to a pond he would watch the ducks swim but without a bang or one falling out of the air, it was just sight seeing to him. Coroiescu loves his animals. His garage has been converted not to a “Man Cave”, but a “Dog Cave”. With leather couches for his other 3 dogs, their own air conditioning and heating system and doggie door. Coroiescu, has now gone the next step. That is bringing Beau’s killer to justice. He filed a report with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, made large banner signs and is offering a $5000 reward for the conviction of Beau’s killer. Several neighbors say they have had animals shot in the area just east of Conroe Regional Airport off Hoda Drive over the years. Coroiescu is asking anyone with information to contact the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office or Crime Stoppers. Texas law says maliciously killing an animal.” Cruelty to animals is a Misdemeanor with a fine up to$1000 and/or imprisonment up to 1 year. On a fourth or subsequent conviction of cruelty to animals, or extreme cruelty to animals, it is a 4th Degree Felony with a fine up to $5000 and/or imprisonment up to 18 months.

    As the owner of 3 dogs I dearly love, my heart breaks for Mr. Coroiescu and all of his neighbors who have lost their dogs so horribly. I commend him for speaking out in honor of Beau and pray that the shooter is brought to justice. I hope others in the area will keep their dogs inside until this sick freak is caught. As a citizen of a neighboring subdivision, I am concerned about this continuing and escalating. I am very hopeful that law enforcement will take this situation extremely seriously. How many times do we hear in the news that some sick murderer, i.e., Florida, got his start shooting animals? This needs to be stopped now. (Just to mention, not that it really matters, but Texas doesn’t have a “4th degree felony” per se; rather, it’s a “state jail felony.” Tex. Penal Code sec. 12.04.)

      Just to clarify: Thanks in large part to the work of the Texas Humane Legislation Network, last year the Governor signed into law important changes to section 42.092 of the Texas Penal Code. On my reading, cruelly killing or causing serious bodily injury to a dog, the first conviction, is a state jail felony (up to 2 years in state jail). Sec. 42.092(b)(1), (c). The offense is a 3rd degree felony (2 to 10 years in prison) if the person has previously been convicted two times. This is a very serious matter.
