Janna Joyner came home Sunday to find Drago, her 3-year-old Saint Bernard, and Adoni, an 8-year-old Labrador retriever, dead in her yard, according to WRAL

Joyner, who works at a dog rescue group, had four other dogs who were also acting strangely. 

She told WRAL her dogs were like her babies. 

Joyner took the dogs to the veterinarian who found traces of Amatoxin, which is found in poisonous mushrooms, which can cause liver failure, according to WRAL

“A dog that consumes those mushroom can go from healthy to very clinically sick, to dead within 24 to 48 hours,” said David Dorman, a professor at N.C. State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. “So it’s a very rapid disease syndrome.”

In a recent NRATV interview, the Atlanta rapper defended the Second Amendment and challenged anti-gun protesters amid March for Our Lives, the nationwide demonstrations for stricter gun laws.

“You’re not woke! You can’t continue to be the lackey,” he told NRATV host Colion Noir. “You’re a lackey of the progressive movement, because you’ve never disagreed with the people who tell you what to do.”

He also criticized National Walkout Day, where thousands of students across the country walked out of their classrooms as a protest against gun violence following the Parkland High shooting in Florida.

“I told my kids on the school walkout: ‘I love you. If you walk out that school, walk out my house,’” the artist said. “We are a gun-owning family. We are a family where my sister farms. We are a family where we'll fish, we'll hunt. But we are not a family that jumps on every single thing an ally of ours does because some stuff we just don't agree with.”

He also discussed what he teaches his children about gun control.

“I'm very pro-Second Amendment, this is why,” he said. “And before you say, ‘What about the children,’ my daughter goes to Savannah State University. There was also a shooting on that campus. Talked to my wife and daughter after that, the decision was we're gonna go to Savannah, she's gonna get a gun and train more.”

Austin is a part-time home for McConaughey, who often shows up at at University of Texas football games, charity fundraisers and other local events. On Saturday, he turned his attention to gun control.

More specifically, he called for banning assault weapons for civilians, banning high-capacity magazines and closing loopholes in the current background check system. “Those are the three main stipulations, and for those three, I can say -- and you can say it with me -- all right, all right, all right.”
