Deputy Who Reportedly Left Bulldogs to Die in Scorching Heat Must be Punished

Target: Alisha Johnson, District Attorney of Rockdale County, GA

Goal: Prosecute animal cruelty case involving three deceased bulldogs and a police dog to the fullest extent.

With extreme temperature swings as the new norm, cases of animal cruelty involving either sweltering or freezing conditions will tragically rise as well. Three American bulldogs in Georgia reportedly became victims of such a tragedy. Storm, Luke, and Lala were apparently found dead inside a 95-plus degree shed. And the man allegedly responsible for leaving them to this agonizing fate is a local law enforcement officer.

A grand jury indicted sheriff’s deputy Eric Tolbert on animal cruelty charges in connection with the aforementioned deaths, as well as the case of a police dog also under Tolbert’s care. The latter animal, named Aegis, was apparently discovered at the deputy’s residence inside a hot pen and in a neglected state. Fortunately, Aegis was alive, unlike the other reported victims.

Tolbert’s case only came under review after significant protests and calls for action from PETA. Sign the petition below to help ensure continued calls lead to a full and vigorous prosecution.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear DA Johnson,

Sheriff’s deputy Eric Tolbert’s badge should not shield him from responsibility for the three innocent animal lives that were allegedly ended under his watch. Each of the dogs in this animal cruelty case experienced a likely horrific and painful death in a shed that was said to be akin to being inside an oven. Worse yet, a police dog also reportedly almost fell victim to neglect under his care.

It took pressure from PETA to help secure an investigation and a grand jury indictment. Please see this case through and pursue the maximum possible penalty in the event of a conviction. Do not plea the case out, and do not rebuff requests to make a permanent ban on pet ownership for Tolbert part of the penalty. Show that the life of every living being matters.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    A grown man who doesn’t give a thought to his PETS locked inside a building in the summer heat. Then locks his partner – a K9 officer – inside a kennel to suffer. Wonder how he treats the human beings he has sworn to protect and serve? Who is supervising this man?

  2. You are so right, My dogs are my babies, I would fight for them like I would my children. This man needs to be locked up for a year or 2.

  3. Deputy should have been fired by now, right?? And why did it take the DISTRICT ATTORNEY pressure from PETA to do the right thing and charge this incompetent and insensitive jerk/criminal. These dogs suffered a horrible death , they suffered because of the actions of an idiot !!

  4. Monstrous monstrous evil, heartbreaking and horrific, karma is theirs – I feel you, poor lost innocent souls; their blood on your souls

    The abuse, torture & murder of the innocents

    Some heartbreaks can never be unseen, some horrors never unheard – PLEASE GOD

    And the universe weeps tears of blood

    Your life as theirs, as their death

  5. Lock Eric Tolbert in the same shed in the same temps and let him experience how these dogs felt. IF it doesn’t kill him sentence his @SS to prison. Being a law enforcer makes this crime even worse, Let him be charged with a felony, found guilty, so he can not ever work as a deputy sheriff ever again.!! What a JERK>

  6. Where is the petition for pos cop who killed her cat?!

  7. Uncommonsensesc says:

    I think the POS needs to have a meeting with a Karma bat! Then left in a hot car until gone! What kind of evil bag of crap does this and then expects no one to say anything about it? Then you get the DA who doesn’t have enough spine to do the right thing and prosecute him! I really miss vigilante justice!

  8. Mike Castoldi says:

    This guy is an ignorant asshole!!! Lock him in the same place these poor dogs where left. They did not deserve his abuse and neglet!!! Karma shit bag!!! RIP STORM,LUKE & LALA 🐾🦴🐾

  9. Bernhard Yolanda says:

    this subject is a cop !!!!!! shame on this son of a bitch and i hope the karma works fast and thoroughly….. also very painful with final ending…

  10. Christine Hornsleth says:

    Have you ever witnessed a dog dying of heat exposure? It’s a miserable unthinkable amount of suffering. Either this cop is intellectually challenge or he just a felon. We expect more from law officers. Too many dogs are killed by cops unnecessarily-but this killing was avoidable and criminal.

  11. eleanor dunkavich says:

    They should lock this creep up in heat and let him stay there

  12. Rose Coffey says:

    Very sad to hear that an officer of the law would be so heartless and neglectful. I am not sure that this person deserves to wear a badge; apparently he does not have a good sense of judgment or, for that matter, good sense in general.

  13. Deputy ( THE LOW LIFE AN HORRIBLE HUMAN BEING) should be looked the same way that he did to the poor defenseless animal!

  14. Bastard!!!!! Please put him in that shed at 150 degrees and get rid of him.

  15. Do the same to this scum. Police officer or not, the dogs deserved to be cared for. I have been following this from the time they removed the K9 in his care.

  16. This subhuman should not be a lalw enfircer!..permanently remove him from the force and arrest him.. this is cruelty and should be taken seriously.

  17. This monster needs to be charged, thrown in shed in the hot summer like he did to these poor babies to have him bake like they did & a FOREVER ban on owning ANY animal EVER AGAIN!!!!

  18. DEFINATELY HE HAS TO DO TIME!!

    HOW COULD HE DO THIS TERRIBLE CRIME HE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HIMSELF.

    JUST BECAUSE HE IS A DUPUTY HE SHOULD KNOW BETTER ..

    DISGUSTING!!!!! HE DOESNT DESERVE TO CALL HIMSELF A DEPUTY

  19. Shame on you!!!! If you do this to these dogs!!!!
    How do you think people will believe that your job is to Serve and Protect after this!!!!! Quit your job, you’re probably a pathetic cop anyways!!!

  20. DO THE SAME RIGHT BACXK TO THAT CREEP, CRAP HUMAN!!!! AND HE SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED IN ANY POSITION OF TRUST FOR THE REST OF LIFE!!!
