David Huckabee, son of Fox News host and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, was fired from his job as a Boy Scout camp counselor after he lured and captured a dog at the campgrounds in 1998. Reports state David Huckabee hung the dog by its neck, slit its throat, and then stoned the dog to death. David claims the act was merciful euthanasia, but the camp disagreed and fired him. His father, Mike Huckabee, was Governor of Arkansas at the time of the incident. Newsweek and other media outlets report Mike Huckabee used state employees, his chief of staff, and others to intimidate and threaten Arkansas state police director John Bailey in an attempt to coerce Bailey to stop prosecutors from bringing animal cruelty charges against David Huckabee. Governor Mike Huckabee fired Director Bailey when he refused to help hide the incident. (snopes.com, newsweek.com, huffingtonpost.com)Click here for reuse options!
