Two Dozen Dogs Apparently Discovered Without Food or Water and Trained to Fight Deserve Justice

Target: Randy McGinley, Interim District Attorney for Newton County, GA

Goal: Seek full charges against man allegedly found with multiple malnourished dogs on his property.

Two dozen dogs were discovered living in reportedly deplorable conditions in Georgia. According to authorities, the dogs had little to no access to food or water. Four apparently were not even able to be rehomed because their circumstances left them too aggressive. The owner of the property, Leon Cecil Conley III, claimed he had the dogs for protection. His history seemingly indicates otherwise.

In 2006, Conley was reportedly convicted of several counts of cruelty to animals. Similar to the current case, investigators at the time reported animals who appeared severely neglected. One of the prior charges and convictions also involved dog-fighting. This time, Conley faces 16 counts of animal cruelty. He cannot be allowed to escape serious consequences once again if he is found guilty.

Sign the petition below to demand the county prosecute this alleged repeat offender to the fullest extent of the law.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. McGinley,

The legal system is supposed to get it right the first time to discourage recidivism. Why, then, is a man with apparent prior convictions for animal cruelty once again in front of the courts looking at 20-plus new charges? Leon Cecil Conley III may be a poster example of the system’s failures.

If the accusations against him are found true, over 20 dogs endured severe starvation and dehydration because of Conley. Some of these animals were reportedly so traumatized by their experiences that they cannot even be adopted. Fifteen years ago, Conley was reportedly convicted of almost the same offense, with dog-fighting charges added at that time. He should have never been allowed near another animal, and his punishment should have more adequately addressed his alleged offenses.

Please do not make the same mistake again. Pursue maximum charges against Mr. Conley and prosecute this case with vigilance.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. All those involved in these horrors should be forced to fight each other until death…. IMO

    It’s despicable to think that these innocent dogs would never have had to endure this abuse if this POS was severely punished the first time. Maybe if we start to say cut off a hand of those abusers for the horrors they inflict, word would spread and maybe people would think twice about hurting them. Change your damn laws and stop with the slap on the wrist that does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to protect these innocent souls from these disgusting acts of cruelty. Maybe these abusers should be put in a cage together and just toss in one meal a day to maybe 10 of them and let them kill each other to survive to save tax payer dollars on jailing these miscreants. When one is left, just add more abusers – there’s certainly no shortage of them. Unless you change your laws, these innocent, voiceless animals will always be the victims. How many more have to die before something is done to truly protect them, and how many more did this jerk harm or kill that you don’t even know about? Sickening and so infuriating.

  3. The only thing worse than the Godless animal abusers are the people protecting them. You should all be ashamed of yourselves for allowing this to happen. Maybe y’all should serve his time for him since he’s obviously far too important to hold accountable. You people are responsible for every life he took. SHAME

  5. These vile scumbag severe animal abusers must have the death penalty implemented.A slow and agonising death for these evil cretins is essential!

  6. There’s no excuse for doing this to animals.
