Cherokee County Undersheriff Jason Chennault told the Muskogee Phoenix: ‘One of the patrol deputies called me and wanted me to know about it. I met him at the sheriff’s office and he showed me the picture.’

Chennault told the paper that he went to Green’s house to speak with him, but only found the teen’s father, who told him that his son had left town because of the death threats he had received.

Outrage: The photo of this pit bull posted to Caisen Green’s Facebook page has drawn the anger of animal lovers across the country

The image was posted to the account of 18-year-old Caisen Green of Tahlequah, Cherokee County, on Friday.

Green has reportedly fled the area after receiving the threats.

The photo, which has since been taken down – along with Green’s Facebook page – shows a pit bull with a long red arrow through the animal’s abdomen with the caption: ‘For all you Pit lovers out there. Here’s what happens when one shows up around my house.’

The image quickly sparked the ire of the internet, with Facebook users from all over the world having their say.

It also got the attention of local authorities.

Cherokee County Undersheriff Jason Chennault told the Muskogee Phoenix: ‘One of the patrol deputies called me and wanted me to know about it. I met him at the sheriff’s office and he showed me the picture.’

Chennault told the paper that he went to Green’s house to speak with him, but only found the teen’s father, who told him that his son had left town because of the death threats he had received.

Chennault told the Phoenix that he’s looking into whether a crime was committed, saying: ‘It’s a gray area. If the dog is threatening livestock or your well-being, you can do what you have to do stop it. I’m going to do my best to get everything done this week.’

Little is known about the dog – including its owner – but Lou Hays, a local Humane Society board member, told KJRH-TV that the dog’s death was likely very painful.

He told the station: ‘I saw a picture with a dog with a red arrow stuck in his side, which made me believe he probably died slowly, probably bled to death,’ Hays said.

Shortly after the picture was posted, a Facebook page was set up to ‘raise awareness’ for animal abuse. It has received more than 2,400 likes.

On Sunday, a dueling page was set up entitled ‘Caisen Green is a True American Hero.’

A person who answered the phone at the office told MailOnline that it was closed for President’s Day, and would not comment on the case.

Poor Michael Vick; the guy runs one incredibly vicious, violent and maybe murderous dogfighting ring, and now everybody hates him. The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback had planned to go on a Barnes & Noble book tour this month to promote his autobiography, Finally Free, but apparently store employees received so many threats regarding the tour that the whole thing has been canceled.

Vick, who most recently got flack last week for taking his dog (yes, he has his own dog) to training classes, was scheduled to make appearances at Barnes and Nobles in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Atlanta, in addition to an independent bookstore in Northvale, NJ, starting March 26th. But his publisher says the tour has made the bookstores targets of potentially violent threats, and they’re no longer comfortable welcoming Vick. "While we stand by Michael Vick’s right to free speech and the retailers’ right to free commerce, we cannot knowingly put anyone in harm’s way, and therefore we must announce the cancellation of Mr. Vick’s book-signing appearances," Worthy Publishing president Byron Williamson said in a statement. "We’ve been assured these threats of violence, which have been reported to the police, are being taken very seriously by local authorities."

If you’re wondering what kind of fighting words have warranted a full-on tour cancellation, Phillymag.com’s got a few choice quotes off the Barnes and Noble Facebook page and Vick’s fan page, including, "I would go there to slit your throat knowing how you treat animals," "hope your kids don’t fall in a pool with a battery," and "I would snap your neck if I met you, your [sic] a piece of trash.” And while a lot of the really violent stuff seems to have been removed, there’s still plenty of vitriol on both pages to go around.

House training your dog or puppy requires consistency. To make life easier on you should choose an area of your yard that will be the potty spot. You will want to take your puppy out to the designated spot every hour. At the designated area you will want to walk the dog around the area and also choose a keyword that you will always use when you are with the dog in the area. This will allow the dog to associate the command with going potty. You will want to continue this process until your dog goes potty in the designated area. You will want to reward him with praise and possibly a treat. Continue with the training and he will eventually understand that he only goes potty in the designated area.

There are many other trainings that you can use to train your dog. Obedience training is a great way to get your dog to obey your commands. This can help keep your dog and others safe. It can also relive stress that a dog with behavior problems can cause. Behavioral training may be much more difficult depending on the issues. Seeking assistance may be the right choice for you and your dog.

If you are encountering more problematic or behavioral issues with your dog then you may want to seek the assistance of a professional trainer. When deciding on a trainer, you may want to consider the following tips. Search for a trainer with years of experience and a good track record. Find a trainer that is willing to customize a program for your dog’s special needs. Every dog is not the same so every trading program should not be the same. Be sure to verify that the trainer or academy only uses humane training methods. Ask for references and look for any negative feedback online. Once you decide on a trainer that meets your criteria, you can then begin the training process.

A 1 Total Control Dog Training Academy (http://www.a1totalcontrol.com/) offers dog dog training NJ by professionals who understand the effective methods of training.
