Kitten Reportedly Thrown Into Burning Fire Pit Deserves Justice

Target: Ray Whitley, District Attorney General of Summer County, TN

Goal: Prosecute man who allegedly fatally burned pet kitten to fullest extent.

“There was no way to even comprehend the amount of pain he was feeling.” This somber statement came from the rescue group who cared for Phoenix, a five-week-old kitten brought to the Tennessee-based organization. Phoenix had apparently suffered severe burns over much of his body, leaving him with extensive nerve damage. Despite the rescue’s best efforts, Phoenix tragically died from his injuries.

Local police reportedly confirmed that these horrific burns resulted from Phoenix being tossed into a fire pit. He is beleived to have suffered for days without medical intervention before his case was brought to authorities’ attention…precious time that could have been used to save his life. Richard Lee Tyler Russell, the man with whom Phoenix lived, has been charged with aggravated animal cruelty.

Sign the petition below to demand he receive maximum punishment if found guilty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney General Whitley,

Suspect Richard Lee Tyler Russell has an impending court date on charges of aggravated animal cruelty. He stands accused of throwing his pet kitten into a fire pit and leaving the animal to suffer from extensive injuries without medical aid. Although the kitten was later rescued thanks to a tip from a good Samaritan, he reportedly died in agony. The rescue organization who battled to save his life said of the tragedy: “his tiny body was just unable to fight off the horrible burns he was dealing with, plus the smoke inhalation.”

Both this organization, who witnessed the horrific effects firsthand, and the community at large are pleading for justice to be served. Please be vigilant in prosecuting this disturbing case and pursuing the most severe penalty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. My GOD-in seeing the photo I was thinking this little Angel may have survived; but another precious life lost due to the vile acts that way too many humans make. Judges/lawyers and communities; you need to stand-up for these most innocent animals and make the felony charge stick. Too many have gotten away with such EVIL.

    So happy to hear that this f*cker died back in September. Rot in hell you lousy piece of sh*t!!!!!

    • Did this psycho bastard die – really? Fucking brilliant. Hope that the fucker died painfully.
      Would have loved to have been there to help the tosser on his way!!

      • Me too Jon. I really wish ALL animal abusers could be shot at dawn, no ifs or buts – I could do it if I had a gun

    • Veronique Peere says:

      Good news indeed if confirmed.
      GOD damn the torturer.

    • Unfortunately, Richard Lee Tyler Russell did not die and still has a pending court date due (about) Nov.9th. Only poor Phoenix died.

      • So you say the bastard did not die.
        But I’ll tell you what, if this piece of shit IS STILL ALIVE the fucker would need to be looking over his shoulder all the time. Especially at night.

        The bastard would really be a’dead man walking’.

  3. Find this fucking bastard and burn him alive.

  4. THROW THAT OWNER ALSO IN FIRE AND LET HIM BE KILLED SLOWLY AS HE DID TO THAT POOR KITTEN.

  5. All animal abusing scumbags globally require instigation of the death penalty and nothing less!

    I’m so sorry that innocent, little Phoenix suffered and died such a horrific death. Richard Lee Tyler Russell is a low down, sadistic piece of slime. His behavior was appalling and unacceptable. He needs to be severely punished and not allowed around animals. RIP Phoenix and I hope you get justice.

  7. Loraine Pretorius says:

    We live in a sick sick world. Hope he get punished severely and not allowed to EVER own or go NEAR any animal EVER. SHAME ON YOU.
    He is sick and deranged and a danger to society. Lock him away.
    SHAME ON YOU>

  8. Made a Memorial Donation in Phoenix’s name at Best Friends that cares for abused animals. I am still trying to get my head around how someone could do such a heinous action upon a defenseless tiny kitten. Every time i think about it or see Phoenix’s picture I cry because I cannot begin to imagine the pain and suffering he suffered through. I pray the perpetrator is prosecuted to the furthest extent of the law.

  9. Colleen Stadnick says:

    HOW could anyone do this to a helpless kitten?! 😭😟💔💔💔😡😡

  10. HOPE THE EVIL FUCK,,, ANIMAL TORTURING MURDERING SADIST DIED IN AGONY!!
    RIP ALL ANIMALS XXXXXXXXX

  11. If anything is deplorable, this is it. A little, baby kitten grown on a fire pit. What brave, caring man would do this? Thus this man needs to be held to a murder conviction. This is a felony I’m sure. Yet laws change from state to state and I wish there was some federal oversight so people like this man don’t get away with murder helped by a judge or defense lawyer. This man is unfit to exist in society. He needs to be charged with a felony, pay fines so high it will take most of his life to pay them and prison. I understand men with this type of crime don’t do very well in prison. He deserves what ever comes his way.

  12. Sylvia Vegas says:

    HARD LUCK YOU CAN’T DO THE SAME WITH THAT DEGENERATE – BUT HE’LL PAY FOR IT IN HELL!

  13. Dr.+Dagmar+Görz-Lenzen says:

    May this degenerate terrorist lose both claws up to the axilla! This dirty piece of male human meat should never be able to touch or harm an animal.

  14. I hate this bastard! I hope he goes to jail and someone punishes him more severely than the justice system has the courage to do.

  15. This evil,mentally deranged severe animal abuser must have the death penalty implemented and nothing less!

  16. Phillip Anderton says:

    “Allegedly fatally” – does that even make sense?

    Whatever, I hope the piece of shit responsible for this hideous act of cruelty, gets a long spell behind bars!
