GOP group forced to cancel Kristi Noem fundraiser after receiving death threats following South Dakota governor’s revelation that she shot puppy because it was naughty

A fundraiser featuring South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem was canceled after organizers received death threats over the killing of her puppy.

Noem wrote in her upcoming memoir that she shot her 14-month-old puppy named Cricket in her family’s gravel pit after killing chickens.

Her admission created a storm that likely torpedoed her chances of being Donald Trump’s running mate and led to her being mocked by other Republicans.

Noem was supposed to be the keynote speaker at the Jefferson County, Colorado Republicans’ annual fundraiser, but it was canceled due to security concerns.

Jefferson County Republican Party Chairwoman Nancy Pallozzi said her group, Noem, her staff and the venue have received “numerous threats and/or death threats.”

“After a conversation with the governor’s office Wednesday evening, we mutually decided that safety was the most important concern for everyone involved,” she said.

“The Denver West Marriott has also received alarming feedback and expressed deep concern to us for the safety and security of our event attendees, other guests and their staff.”

Pallozzi said canceling the event was “not a stand against the public outcry over the governor’s book” but simply a matter of safety.

She said Noem “must and continues to stand up for our constitutional rights, freedom and less government, which is the platform of the Republican Party.”

The organization will refund everyone who purchased the expensive tickets to the event and absorb the thousands of dollars in costs it cannot recover.

The controversy, which even aroused the annoyance and anger of her conservative colleagues on social networks, forced her to Noem will do damage control.

She lamented that the outrage was “fake news” whipped up by “the media” — prompting a new wave of criticism from readers who pointed out that the press was only reporting Noem’s own published words.

“I can understand why some people are upset by a 20 year old story about Cricket, one of our ranch’s working dogs,” she wrote on Twitter.

“The fact is that South Dakota law states that dogs that attack and kill livestock can be put down. Since Cricket had been showing aggressive behavior towards people by biting them, I decided what I would do.

“As I explained in the book, it was not easy. But often the simplest solution is not the right one.

Noem later told Fox News that Cricket had “butchered” a neighbor’s livestock the day he was killed.

“It came to us from a family who found it too aggressive,” she said.

The book, titled No Going Back: The Truth on What’s Wrong with Politics and How We Move America Forward, will be released on May 7.

In it, Noem talks about the pointer she shot in the gravel pit on her family property, moments before her children came home from school.

She claimed that Cricket had an “aggressive personality” that could not be tamed – as evidenced by the fact that he had ruined a pheasant hunt because he was “crazy with excitement, chasing all these birds and getting fun as hell.”

Additionally, when the governor of South Dakota took Cricket with her to meet a local family, the dog began killing the family’s chickens like “a trained assassin.”

According to a book extract obtained by the Guardian, Cricket would “catch one chicken at a time, crunch it to death in one bite, then drop it to attack another.”

As former President Donald Trump considers who should become his vice president, Noem has written a new book, No Going Back: The Truth on What's Wrong with Politics and How We Move America Forward, which will be released on May 7.

When Noem finally caught the dog, she wrote that Cricket “turned around to bite me.”

Cricket was “the picture of pure joy”. Meanwhile, the owner of the chickens was crying.

Noem wrote that she wrote a check “for the price they asked and helped them dispose of the carcasses that littered the crime scene.”

“I hated that dog,” Noem wrote, believing the 14-month-old dog to be “untrainable,” “dangerous to anyone she comes into contact with,” and “less than worthless…as a dog.” hunting”.

So she decided to kill Cricket.

“At that time,” the governor wrote. “I realized I had to put her down.”

She shot Cricket in the family gravel pit.

“It wasn’t a pleasant job,” Noem said, “but it had to be done. And once it was over, I realized I had to do another unpleasant job.

Noem also decided to get rid of the family goat because he was “mean and nasty”, as he remained unneutered and smelled “disgusting, musky (and) rancid” and “liked to chase” the governor’s children.

She also “dragged him to the gravel pit”, but the goat jumped while she tried to shoot him, briefly leaving him alive.

Noem said she had to return to her truck and get another shell, then “hurried back to the gravel pit and dropped it off.”

Her actions were observed, she said, by a construction crew working nearby. A few moments later, the bus dropped off her children.

“Kennedy looked around, confused,” Noem recalled of her daughter, who asked, “Hey, where’s Cricket?”

Noem then admitted, “I guess if I was a better politician, I wouldn’t be telling this story here.”

On Friday, the Internet was abuzz with reactions to his story.

Alyssa Farah Griffin, a vocal Trump critic and former White House communications director, wrote on

“I’m a dog lover and I’m honestly horrified by Kristi Noem’s snippet. I wish I hadn’t even read it. A 14 month old dog is still a puppy and can be trained.

“Much of bad behavior in dogs is due to lack of proper training on the part of the humans responsible for it,” Griffin wrote.
