Dogs Reportedly Found Starving and Emaciated in Feces-Filled Pen Deserve Justice

Target: Stephen Herron, Director of the Public Prosecution Service of Northern Ireland

Goal: Seek maximum penalty against man accused of depriving dogs of food, water, and humane habitat.

Authorities in Northern Ireland recently converged on a residence where two siblings were supposedly taking care of dogs. They were reportedly greeted to a house filled with trash and animal feces and urine. Their discoveries in the home’s garden were apparently even worse. The “habitation” of the siblings’ two dogs allegedly consisted of a pen not even large enough for the animals to lie down in, along with a chain. Reports indicate no water or bedding was found in the pen, but that it did contain heaps of excrement. The animals themselves were recorded as having a body score of one, which indicates they were extremely emaciated. No veterinary visits could be found for the dogs, either.

The judge hearing the case described it as a “litany of the most horrible acts a human being can carry out” and called the acts “beyond contemplation.” Despite this assessment, the brother and sister were still given a three-month suspended sentence and probation, respectively. This, came despite the fact that the brother had previously been found guilty of animal cruelty and forbidden from having a pet.

The siblings’ father will soon face his own cruelty charges related to this case. Sign the petition below to demand the system not let a potential miscarriage of justice happen again.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Director Herron,

“Cruelty in the extreme” were the words used to describe the charges brought against Mark and Hannah Henry of Craigavon. The siblings pleaded guilty to severely neglecting their family dogs and keeping them in inhumane conditions. At the time they were rescued, the animals reportedly had the lowest possible body score of one. They may very well have been rescued from an imminent and painful death.

The warning signs were there. Mark Henry had a previous animal cruelty conviction and had been prevented contact with any animals. He seemingly willfully violated this order, yet he got a minor, suspended sentence as “punishment.” Such a non-penalty does not match the harshness of a crime the very judge hearing the case described as “a litany of the most horrible acts” and “beyond comprehension.”

Another member of this family, Matron Henry, will soon have his day in court regarding these animal cruelty charges. Please pursue a penalty in this case that truly reflects the gravity of the alleged crimes.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. I just hate when the judge describes a case as terrible and then gives a nonexistent sentence. If there is no real consequence or punishment, there is nothing to prevent these people from doing this again and even getting worse.
    Animal crimes need to have the same weight as human crimes. They are living beings. There is no difference.

  2. I wonder how these humans would feel if we did the same thing to them!!!

      I think someone should make it happen. We need someone with a backbone to take over where the spineless authorities and lawmakers fail to stand up and protect these poor innocent animals

      • Jolene Krise – I definately agree with your comment.
        “I think someone should make it happen. We need someone with a backbone to take over where the spineless authorities and lawmakers fail to stand up and protect these poor innocent animals”

        The spineless vile and evil authorities and lawmakers are an absolute disgrace and must be jailed for their sadism and eviness.These spineless monsters are suppose to be protecting and saving the lives of our precious and innocent sentient beings.

        All animal torturers and animal murderers must be brought to Justice and sentenced to death. This must be introduced into the Animal Protection Laws immediately.

        These lowlife psychopathic monsters are definately psychopathic animal torturing murdering monsters from hell and must be eradicated from our planet immediately.

      I AGREE, HELL THEY CAN’T EVEN MIDIGATE FOR A PANDEMIC. ALL THEY DO IS BITCH AND COMPLAIN. CANDY ASS PEOPLE.

  3. Michelle Stewart says:

    All of those people deserve the death penalty for what they did

    • Jackie Pflucker says:

      NO ONE WILL EVER GIVE A ‘DEATH PENALTY’ TO EVEN A HUMAN MONSTER; WHY DON’T WE BETTER ASK FOR ‘LIFE IN PRISON?
      THAT’D BE MORE FEASIBLE TO FULFFILL.

  4. Gregory Bell says:

    Sad thing is that such putrid balls of shit continue to infest this planet. These slimy cunts should be hanged.

  5. Why, with a previous history of the same type of crime, did this man and his accomplises not get heftier jail sentences? Maybe the judge needs to be investigated!? Something seems wrong there. This is definitely sending out the wrong message wrt animal cruelty and appropriate punishments.

  6. ANIMALS SHALL NOT BE VICTIM OF HUMAN SADISTS!!
    This SUBHUMAN TRASH must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law! These perpetrators are a DEHUMANIZED, DESENSITIZED, SADISTIC and PSYCHOPATHIC MONSTERS and should get the HARSHEST PUNISHMENT possible. Acts of violence like this have NO PLACE in our communities and CANNOT BE IGNORED. ANIMAL ABUSE needs to be taken as seriously AS any HUMAN ABUSE. Animals SHALL NOT BE VICTIMS — and they deserve JUSTICE just like YOU and ME.
    ANIMALS SHALL NOT BE VICTIMS OF HUMAN PSYCHOPATHS!!
    MAX JAIL. They must also be forbidden from coming near animals ever again!

    This brother and sister need mental help. I guess it’s a good thing I am not a judge; I would be having this pair sleep at a landfill in a pen every night for a year or so. If they come out of it “bitter and vengeful” then Hi Ho, Hi Ho, off to a mental ward they go.

  8. Unfeeling dumbass POS’s like that should not even be allowed around innocent animals. Why aren’t the laws against animal abuse more meaningful?

  9. William Foreman says:

    Ukraine never give up.
    Never give in.
    Fight !!!!!

  10. Jacqueline A says:

    Throw them in the pen as part of the punishment!!! It can be done
    Ireland, get with the Times!! They can never own animals again!! Update, your laws!!

  11. Aniaml ausers require instigation of the death penalty.

  12. Aniaml abusers require instigation of the death penalty.
