Dos Rios Man Booked for Animal Cruelty After Allegedly Shooting Three Dogs Dead

The following is a press release issued by the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office. The information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty:


Trevor Williams [Mugshot from the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office]

On 08-25-2022 at 7:14 A.M.  Mendocino County Sheriff’s Deputies received a report of three canines having been shot and killed at a residence located in the 15000 block of Poonkinney Road in Dos Rios, California.

The incident occurred while the residents were away and was discovered when they returned home from their trip.

The suspect responsible for shooting the canines was identified as Trevor Williams.  Williams was identified as the suspect by home surveillance video footage taken of the incident which was obtained by the Deputies.

Upon arrival at the location of the incident, Deputies located the three deceased canines.  The deceased canines had been shot while inside a kennel in the backyard. 

The canines were dragged to other parts of the property in an attempt to hide them.  Deputies found evidence that an attempt to clean up the scene had been made by Williams prior to his leaving the residence.  The motive for the shooting is unknown.

Due to the video footage evidence that identified Williams as the shooter of the canines, a felony arrest warrant was issued for Williams for the charges of cruelty to animals, committing offenses while out on bail (refer to Sheriff’s Office press release 2022-17279 issued on 07-28-2022), and violation of a restraining order.

On 08-29-2022 at 11:20 A.M. Williams was contacted in the Fort Bragg area and placed under arrest pursuant to the felony arrest warrant.

Williams was booked into the Mendocino County Jail where he was to be held in lieu of $220,000.00 bail.

  1. This really pisses me off!!! Dogs have nothing but love & loyalty in their hearts! It takes a particularly sinister piece of shit to kill a dog! Not to mention the heartbreak im sure the owners are suffering through….I hope this soulless asshole gets far worse than whatever the court dishes out!

    • Yes indeed!! I would have been so distraught over my dogs being murdered, I doubt the sheriffs would have been called once I knew it was him. Frontier justice comes to mind.

  2. This son of a bitch needs to go away for a long time. May he suffer a slow and agonizing death! He ruthlessly killed these dogs while they were in their kennel on private property. My heart goes out to the dogs owners who had to come home and find their family members murdered!!!

  3. Send this guy to Molinari. Let him stake this guy out on the ground, pour some of his famous
    lumpy gravy all over the guy and let the dogs have at him. Shish kabob the fingers for the kitties.

  4. PEOPLE WHO VIOLENTLY KILL PETS, FREQUENTLY ESCALATE TO MURDER SOMEDAY. A LENGTHY STAY IN JAIL/PRISON IMPOSED BY THE PRESIDING JUDGE IN THIS CASE, COULD SAVE LIVES IN THE FUTURE. NO DOUBT, THERE’S A HISTORY OF ANIMAL ABUSE IN HIS PAST…
