Animals Covered in Oil and Lit on Fire, Smashed by Rock, and Drowned in Trash Can Deserve Justice

Target: Jim O’Neill, Forsyth County District Attorney
Goal: Pursue maximum penalty for man accused of horrific animal abuse.

A squirrel was sprayed with oil and set on fire, another squirrel was stomped to death, and a possum was drowned in a trash can, according to reports. Apparently, a 19-year-old man recorded himself performing these acts of abuse and then posted the videos online.

The alleged videos depicting the abuse were filmed between December 2018 and July 2019 but the arrest was just made.

While all of the reported acts are heinous, possibly the most grotesque abuse came when a squirrel was allegedly sprayed by the man with WD-40 and then lit on fire. The man is accused of allowing the squirrel to burn for two minutes and 56 seconds. This incident was also apparently filmed and shared on social media.

Another horrific act of abuse allegedly occurred when the man wrapped another squirrel in tape, placed the animal in a plastic bag, and then threw a large rock on the creature. To finish the job, the man allegedly stomped on the rock to further torture the animal.

Although the accused abuser was arrested, his bail was set at only $7,500.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Jim O’Neill,

Squirrels and a possum were reportedly subjected to horrific abuse in Forsyth County. According to reports, a man filmed himself engaging in a wide range of shocking instances of animal abuse. Reportedly, he then posted videos of this abuse on social media.

The details of these alleged crimes will shock the conscience. Allegedly, the man covered a squirrel in WD-40 and then filmed himself lighting the poor creature on fire. He also is reported to have taped a squirrel up, placed it in a bag, and then smashed the animal with a rock. Finally, he is also accused of drowning multiple animals in a trash can filled with water. All of this cruelty was then posted to social media, according to reports.

I ask that you please devote the resources necessary to fully prosecuting these alleged crimes. If you obtain a conviction, I also ask that you pursue the strictest punishment available.

Sincerely,
[Your Name Here]

  1. These are three counts of murder with grievous torture. Three death penalties is what he deserves and should get. Burn him to death with napalm. fair is fair

  2. This man is a SADIST! He needs to be put in PRISON NOW! This is so very serious! How many more innocent creatures are you allowing him to torture!

    • When I hear stories like this I worry about their future actions, anyone that can do this, post a video online and feel proud or self satisfied, is a serious danger. The likes Jeffery Dahmer began his murder spree with behaviour like this as a teenager. I think this sadist ought to be placed in a secure unit, clearly a sociopath.

      Felony Animal Abuse, He Is An Evil Sociopath.Danger To Animals,Max Sentence Should Be Given & Put On List Of Animal Abusers ! What Else Has He Done ?

  3. We need to start protesting these lame laws they have in place to put a stop to these sickening acts!! These sick people should not be out in society!!

  4. WHY IS SOCIAL MEDIA ALLOWING THIS?!

  5. Put him in jail and throw away the key.

    I AGREE WITH VINCE
    “These are three counts of murder with grievous torture. Three death penalties is what he deserves and should get. Burn him to death with napalm. fair is fair‼️“

  7. Better off hanging this miserable thing now!

  8. Just do the same to this f–ing SOB. He should be sprayed with oil, lit on fire, stoned then drowned. There is no other justice for these acts

  9. OMG, what the hell is wrong with these monsters. I hope they get what they deserve.

  10. This bastard is beyond sick and beyond help

  11. Christine Horn says:

    This evil $&@“ deserves torture.

  12. What few realise is that this depth of depravity is the beginning of progressive slaughter. This creature will seek bigger gratification, through larger animals, then children elderly, homeless. They must be taken off the streets before they escalate.

  13. Christopher Sonnier says:

    Isn’t this the path that all serial killers start down? According to the FBI Statistics, yes, which is why these crimes should be taken seriously.

  14. Fran Elkington says:

    Sick, disgusting barbaric monster. The same should be done to him.

  15. I agree with Christopher. These are serious crimes. No one knows if he is doing this for pleasure or for the chance to be a “celebrity” on social media. Either way, he needs to be watched closely. He is dangerous!

  16. ANYONE THAT CAN DO THOSE TERRIBLETHINGS TO INNOCENT ANIMALS SHOULD HAVE THE SAME THINGS DONE TO THEM AND MAYBE THEY WILL LEARN A LESSON FROM IT…IT’S TERRIBLE ABUSE NOT A FFUNNY THING TO DO TO THEM….UUUGH…

  17. Catherine neilson says:

    this nasty individual needs to be taken out of normal society his next will likely be a child, he needs put away now

  18. Kat Gonzalez says:

    How do we make laws? How can we get a law for the whole USA that says ANYONE that does harm, torture, bestiality, killing of animals gets at least 10 years of prison WITH NO PAROLE and has to be on a registry they cannot own or come near animals for the rest of their life??? HOW do we do that?

  19. His parents and friends and family must be so proud. Prosecute this PIS to the fullest extent.

  20. Do they need him to climb up the sociopathic ladder and hurt a human to truly prosecute this waste of human garbage? He is clearly displaying sadistic sociopathic behavior with animal cruelty. These laws are a joke and further show the lack of awareness of initial criminal behavior.
