Punish Man Accused of Viciously Attacking Police Dog

A man is accused of viciously attacking a police dog. Demand that the man be penalized to the maximum extent of the law if he is found guilty.

Target: Jeffrey Martin Landry, Louisiana Attorney General

Goal: Prosecute man who reportedly abused police K-9 to the harshest penalty allowed by law.

A man allegedly threw Mardi Gras beads at a K-9 police dog. It is important that he be punished to the fullest extent of the law if he is found guilty of such despicable behavior. Others must be discouraged from committing similar acts.

The incident reportedly happened at the Krewe of Janus Mardi Gras parade. Vernon Cotton allegedly threw wrapped-up beads at the dog. Sadly, the beads apparently hit the dog in the face. The beads likely  injured the dog, as they were said to be the size of a basketball. Authorities report that the beads were purposely thrown at the animal, since the officer and the dog were the only ones standing near the parade float when it passed.

Although Cotton was booked on a Simple Cruelty to Animals charge, he was released shortly afterward. Demand Cotton be given the strictest legal sentence if he is found guilty of this reported crime. No animal deserves to be treated in such a deplorable manner.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney General Landry,

Vernon Cotton was arrested for allegedly throwing three pounds of Mardi Gras beads at a police K-9. He needs to be given the harshest penalty under law if he is found guilty this unnecessary act to better ensure that others will take animal cruelty laws seriously.

The man allegedly threw the beads at the dog while on a parade float at the Krewe of Janus Mardi Gras parade. Unfortunately, the dog was said to be hit hard in the face and likely suffered a great amount of pain, since the beads were thought to weigh as much as a basketball. While it is good news that Cotton was immediately arrested for this alleged crime, he should not have been granted permission to go home without further investigation. For these reasons, we demand that you suggest Cotton be given the toughest sentence if he is found guilty. Unsuspecting, innocent dogs do not deserve to be hurt by callous individuals.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

Stop Tearing Kittens Apart in Dog Fights for ‘Sport’

A kitten escaped from a dog fighting ring where he would have been viciously torn apart. However, the dog fighting ring still hasn’t been busted. Demand police make a real effort to find and arrest those responsible for this disgusting abuse.

Target: Randal Taylor, Chief of Police for Indianapolis, Indiana

Goal: Find and arrest people responsible for throwing innocent kittens in dog fighting rings with hungry dogs.

A small kitten was dyed partially red for the purpose of being used in a dog fighting ring. Though this one kitten managed to escape, there are likely many more out there still suffering due to this disturbing cruelty. Demand that authorities find whoever is doing this in order to make sure other kittens are safe.

The black and white kitten was luckily found by a UPS driver and taken to the Southside Animal Shelter. The kitten’s white fur was dyed red, a clear indicator to employees that he was intended to be used in a dog fighting ring. Shelter officials explained on social media that dog fighters dye kittens various colors and make bets on which kitten will be destroyed first by the dogs. Luckily, most of the dye came off the kitten, and shelter employees were able to provide him with a safe and stable environment. This kitten will have the chance to be adopted by a loving family. However, there are likely many other kittens that are being abused by dog fighters in the city.

Kittens don’t deserve to be thrown into situations where they can’t defend themselves. Sign below and demand the immediate shut down of any and all dog fighting rings in the area and swift legal consequences for those responsible.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Police Chief Taylor,

The Southside Animal Shelter recently took in a black and white kitten that likely escaped from a dog fighting ring. Authorities need to do everything possible to find the people who are responsible for these horrific events in order to better ensure that other animals remain safe.

A UPS driver turned the kitten over to the shelter after finding him in an industrialized area. Shelter officials noticed the kitten’s white fur had been dyed red and explained that kittens were dyed different colors and used in dog fighting circles. Unfortunately, the culprits are said to make bets on things like what kitten will survive the longest among the dogs.

While it is good news that this kitten was rescued and will be put up for adoption, many kittens are still being abused in this disgusting and horrifying manner. Dogs and kittens do not deserve this type of treatment. For these reasons, we demand you do everything possible to shut down these illegal events and find the people responsible for the benefit of all animals.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

A dog was found by police running loose in a Dallas neighborhood. The dog, an 8-year-old German Shepard named Lucky, appeared to have severe untreated wounds across his body. The police managed to capture Lucky and take him to a local veterinarian, where he was treated for the badly infected wounds.

Upon examination, the vet noticed the wounds in Lucky’s ear were old and untreated and, as a result, had been infested with maggots. The vet speculated that these wounds had possibly occurred from a past dog fight and became infected when they went untreated. Lucky had to undergo two hours of surgery to repair the infected wounds and to completely remove his left ear. The surgery was extra complicated due to the copious amounts of dead tissue.

The Dallas SPCA has been given temporary custody of Lucky while the police investigation continues. Any tips regarding Lucky’s history are greatly appreciated.
