A social media campaign is calling for justice after a hunter was charged for killing his yellow lab. 

Investigators say Dustin Coker from Louisiana was duck hunting in Carlsbad last month.

A friend claims Coker got angry and shot his dog, Gypsy, when she wouldn’t fetch three ducks Coker had shot. Deputies say the friend was forced to kill the dog because she was suffering. 

He then reported Coker.

Animal activists have since started a Twitter campaign called “Justice for Gypsy.” It includes details of the crime and photos of Gypsy.
