This isn’t good for the FBI image. Some expect an agent might have to shoot a deranged serial killer or terrorist, but a Chihuahua named Sassy? Not good. From Waco, Texas, here’s the sad story of Sassy.

WACO, Tex. Disappointed but not surprised,” is how Jason and Amy Davis feel about the sentence handed down Wednesday to the local FBI agent who shot and killed their 3-pound Chihuahua, Sassy.
Lovett Leslie Ledger, 40, was sentenced Wednesday by 54th State District Judge Matt Johnson to two years’ deferred probation and 300 hours of community service after pleading no contest to state jail felony animal cruelty charges. Deferred probation means there will be no final judgment of guilt if Ledger successfully completes deferred probation.
“This is closure for us,” Jason Davis said. “We’re here for our children. They still ask us questions we don’t know how to answer.”
Jason Davis said the appropriate punishment would have been for Ledger to be in the Davis home the night when the Davises had to tell their children, now ages 9 and 6, that their pet, Sassy, had been killed.
