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]

  2. This is the most sadistic cruelty and horrific, prolonged suffering that was deliberately inflicted on defenseless animals!!! And, He celebrated it w social media!!! This is a felony crime and must be treated w the utmost seriousness!!!This sick, sadistic individual must, must be stopped. There cannot be any justifiable reason not to impart every maximum penalty including the most heavy fines,maximum prison times,lengthy parole, community service, and mandatory psychiatric care preferably at his expense. There must be a lifetime ban from ever owning or interacting with animals.Respectfully, Do your job and protect the most vulnerable! This person must be held fully accountable or you are complicit. Without imparting these needed penalties to send the no tolerance message) and measures this will happen again!!! Do not be jaded or complacent especially in this felony case!!!… Thank you.

  7. silver_wing says:

    This person is sick. He should be institutionalized and for a very long time. Probably for the rest of his life.

  8. THIS PATHETIC EVIL PSYCHOPATH MONSTER NEEDS TO BE PUNISHED SEVERELY FOR THE PAIN, SUFFERING AND TRAUMA HE CAUSED THESE POOR HELPLESS ANIMALS. THIS IS INEXCUSABLE AND UNACCEPTABLE AND UNCONSCIONABLE. WHAT COULD MAKE AN INDIVIDUAL DO SUCH DISGUSTING, DISGRACEFUL AND DESPICABLE ACTS OF VIOLENCE AGAINST INNOCENT ANIMALS. . . THIS IS A VERY ANGRY, TWISTED “INHUMANE” PERSON AND HE NEEDS TO BE TAKEN OUT OF SOCIETY

  9. This imbecile who committed these heinous crimes against animals needs to be put out of our misery. He is mentally unstable and needs to be pushing up daisy’s from 6 feet underground.

  10. Simone Giaquinto says:

    Are you kidding me Georgia! WTF!!!! Bail was only %7500, really. This person is dangerous to society and you let him out to continue doing what he is doing? What’s next? cats, dogs, small children??? When will we ever wake up and toughen our laws for animal abuse.

  11. Louise Peacock says:

    This guy needs to be in jail forever.

  12. Michelle Stewart says:

    This bastard is probably going to turn into an animal serial killer. The violence is going to get even worse and the animals larger. He deserves to have all those horrendous, torturous, killing methods done to him. He does not deserve to live.

  13. Laszlo Lendl says:

    Take this mofo and give him the same treatment.

  14. This psychotic sociopath is a clear danger to society. The deliberate and brutal torture of these small defenseless creatures defies belief, he is clearly a serial killer in training. Please stop him and protect both animals and human from this loser – put him in jail for a long time, ban him from any animal contact or posting on any social media site for life and then send him to a mental institution.

  15. Elease M. Bradford says:

    I’m so sorry to hear of the horrific abuse these innocent animals suffered. The perpetrator is a depraved, sadistic idiot. Why is he just being arrested? He’s probably abused and killed many animals prior to his arrest. I hope he’ll be severely punished. RIP fur babies and I hope you get justice.

  16. Where is Forsyth county ? What are the actual names of the alleged accused perpetrators ? This information should be included in this or any petition.

  17. The monsters name is Caleb Daniel Dewald, 19. He is a danger to any living thing, animal or human. Lock him up for a long time & plaster his picture everywhere for all to see!!

  18. He should never have received bail. This is the absolute worst case of animal abuse that I have read about. Please separate him from the rest of us forever! Those poor animals! Who could ever go to sleep at night with this person as their neighbor?

  19. Kill this unless POS before he harms anything else! JUSTICE is coming for all very soon. Almighty God will correct all evil and avenge the victims.

    Make no mistake, this Monster has probably already moved on to torturing people. Put him away and throw away the key, oh and lobotomize him as well just to be extra safe.
