German Shepherd Apparently Brutally Beaten by Owner on Video Deserves Justice

Target: Henrico County, Virginia Commonwealth Attorney Shannon L. Taylor

Goal: Give man prison sentence for allegedly beating dog and do not allow him to own pets.

Thomas Edward Grant was arrested on two counts of animal cruelty after he allegedly beat his German shepherd named Ginger. It is important he receive the maximum penalty so that other animals will be less likely to suffer if he is found guilty of this horrible crime.

Police said they discovered video evidence of the event after neighbors posted footage on social media. According to reports, the dog can be heard yelping loudly while the episode is taking place. Reports also indicate that authorities had previously been called to Grant’s home for similar accusations.

Grant is currently being held without bond, and Ginger as well as a cat were removed from his home. Grant may get his animals back if the current charges are dropped. Sign this petition to demand Grant be given the most time behind bars possible and to further insist he no longer be legally allowed to own animals if he is found guilty of these unthinkable acts.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Commonwealth Attorney Taylor,

Authorities arrested Thomas Edward Grant after it was reported he repeatedly beat his German shepherd. Grant should not receive any mercy under the law if he is found guilty of such vile animal cruelty.

Neighbors said they witnessed Grant hit Ginger on many occasions. However, evidence was needed, likely because of Grant not being arrested for similar alleged tragedies. One of his neighbors, Kennon Joyner, therefore taped Grant while he was reportedly hitting and kicking Ginger and then posted the video on social media.

The dog was temporarily placed at the Henrico County Police Animal Shelter. However, if Grant’s case is not taken seriously, he may be given permission to take Ginger and his cat home and not be required to pay fines or spend time in jail. I therefore demand you seek the toughest sentence possible for Grant and that you further tell the judge he should not be legally allowed to have pets if he is found guilty of this needless abuse.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    If there is video footage then hopefully the charges will not be dropped. Thankfully someone has proof now. What I don’t understand is why people video tape an incident whether it be on an animal or abuse of a person the authorities are not called nor does the person videotaping try to stop the abuse.

    Give this monster psyhopathic animal torturing monster Thomas Edward Grant a prison sentence for life for deliberately and heinously beating his inocent and defenceless German Shepherd Ginger almost to death. This vile and evil animal torturing monster must never be allow to own innocent pets.How many times has this vile and evil torturing monster tortured Ginger and also the precious and innocent Cat.
    The vile and evil monster deserves the death penalty.
    If found guilty what a lot of shit. You know this monster Thomas Edward Grant deliberately tortured Ginger and probably the innocent Cat as well.So put the monster bastard to death. No animals will be safe near this evil lowlife pos.

    Do not return Ginger and the cat to this horrible excuse of a human being. Hello wake up you return Ginger,she’s going to be killed he will kill or abuse her so badly that Ginger will need to be euthanized and if that happens it will be your fault, you will have blood on your hands This actually makes me sick what ever excuse/reason he comes up with, there’s never a reason for abuse.
    No animal and human asks to be abused Seriously i pray Karma pays a visit and leaves this POS praying begging for his life, what happens happens then call it a day

  6. Michele Giardini says:

    Take Ginger out of that bad situation and let him be punished by law

  7. These innocent babies deserve better!

  8. Most definitely those animals NEVER go back to him and he should NOT EVER have animals in his residence. THIS is why we need a National Animal Abuse Registry. Please publish his name and address!

  9. This vile,mentally deranged severe dog abusing scumbag most definately requires instigation of the death penalty and nothing less.A slow and agonising death for this evil cretin is essential!
