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]

  2. Thomas Edward Grant is a fur monster who deserves the exact same treatment. May he rot I. Hell. For this horrific act of cruelty against an innocent, defenceless animal.

  3. That individual (I won’t even say he is a man) deserves the same beating he gave that poor dog. He needs life in prison + $ 540,000.00 fine + never be allowed to own another animal again. Oh before he goes to prison let me have him for 1 hour because that’s all I will need

  4. Please punish this friggin COWARD AND MONSTER.

  5. WHY DO WE CONSTANTLY HAVE TO BEG TO HAVE THESE MUTANY ANIMAL ABUSERS JAIL SENTENCES? IT IS THE LAW!!!!!! WHY CAN’T OFFICIALS DO THEIR JOBS AND APPLY THE LAWS WE FOUGHT FOR TO PROTECT ANIMALS FROM THESE F—— MONSTERS??!!

  6. THERE ARE LAWS REQUIRING JAIL TIME FOR THESE MUTANTS!!!!!! WHY DO WE HAVE TO KEEP SIGNING PETITIONS??? UPHOLD THE DAMN LAWS!!!!

  7. All these mutants who attack innocent animals. . . let’s drop them in the prison population and let the animal lovers deliver the justice they deserve. I’m sick of begging officials charged with upholding animal protection laws and who do nothing.

  16. The authorities have actually got a video of him beating his beautiful German Shepherd, Why does he have to have a trial – just put him in prison and throw away the key or throw him in the sea, miles away from any land, like the middle of the Pacific Ocean and find good homes for the animals. I am sure homes could be found as he is a delightful dog.

  17. BEAT THAT MONSTER OF AN OWNER AS HARD ALS HE BEATED GINGER AND THE CAT. YOU MAY BEAT HIM IN JIL TILL H DIES. NO MERCY.

  18. Animals shall NOT be VICTIMS of human sadistic psychopaths!
