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]

  1. Every day another sad story caused by a useless piece of shit human. This bastard needs to be in jail not looking to lock up someone else. He should be fired from his job and just put into prison for this god damn bullshit abuse that HE inflicted on these poor dogs. WTF is wrong with people – there is no excuse or justification for what he did – what an ignorant f*cker!! The planet doesn’t need these animal abusers.

  2. This man has disgraced the entire police department. He did, knowingly, cook 3 of his dogs to death. Then abused a police dog too. There is no excuse for his actions. None. If not for PETA, we may have never known of these abusive deaths. So who is in charge here? PETA brought the charges to attention but why did they have to be the ones to do so? Where are the oversight commissions? We obviously need oversight as this horrid crime would not have even been reported without PETA. Thank you PETA. This man used his credentials and influence in the department to avoid being charged. He did the crime and now he must do the time. Hopefully there will be an honest judge presiding. Prison, for a long time, needs to be the outcome for this crime.

      TOTALLY AGREE PETA ROCKS!!! AS FOR THIS LESS THAN HUMAN BEING SICK PHYCOPATH LOCK UP HIS SORRY ASS IN A METAL BUILDING NO FOOD NO WATER LEAVE HIM TO SUFFER AND DIE THE DEVIL ALREADY HAS HIS SOLE SO HE WILL BURN IN HELL!!!

  3. It’s a shame that people who are hired to protect and serve, pick who, or what they protect and serve.
    The laws on the books on animal abuse right now are a joke.
    There should be longer jail time-
    Stiffer fines-
    Have to register as an abuser for life-
    And never legally own an animal for the rest of their lives-
    Right now it’s a slap on the wrist and a small fine.

  4. Cruel monster , he needs to be locked in a room where the temperature is high & let him feel what those poor dogs must have gone through . Why are humans so cruel to animals ,I don’t like cruelty at all but I don’t know how someone can do this to a poor animal who can’t get out .This person is a cruel jerk & I hope he gets the book thrown at him ….🤬😡🤬😡🤬😡

  5. I don’t care if he’s a surgeon, ditch digger or a police officer. This is cruelty at it’s worst. 3 dead dogs and another, who was trained to trust and obey, is sick. Make this despicable man pay as hard as possible

  6. why have dogs to do this its vile he needs jail for life

  7. Natalie Kamberos says:

    This was unavoidable! People need to love and protect animals-period!

  8. This deputy is no better than the monsters who purposely abuse and neglect fur babies. He deserves the same treatment!

  9. Stephanie Wood says:

    I wish we could do to humans what they do to animals.

    • Well yes we can, if we can muster up enough people all in the same mindset to thrash seven barrels of shit out of these uncaring fucking excuses for humans,
      It is the only thing that will make them realise that cruelty and torture of animals does not pay.
      It would as normal humans, be very difficult to actually ‘kill’ someone no matter what they had done.
      But to beat the bastards senseless and cripple them for the rest of their miserable stinking lives would go some way to make the tossers think about what they have done.
      All power to any groups fired up enough to teach the fuckers a very severe lesson that they would never forget for the rest of their miserable lives.
      This is going to happen!!
      Charles Bronson in ‘Death Wish’ had the right idea!!

  10. Maria Lavorato says:

    Don’t drop this case and go for Maximum jail time TIMES FOUR ! NO PLEA OUT.

    CRUELTY TO ANIMALS HAS TO END ONE EVIL PERSON AT A TIME!!!!
    There should be ZERO ANIMAL CRUELTY TOLERANCE WHATSOEVER! CLEAN UP AND GET IT DONE OR IT GOES ON AND ON!!

    Animals are sweet and innocent and should always be protected! especially for all they unselfishly do!

    HOPE HE SOON TASTE THE BURN OF HELL!!!

  11. This scumbag Eric Tolbert needs to be put behind bars! How could any human being believe a dog would be comfortable in a hot pen in extreme heat?! Eric Tolbert is an evil POS. Terminate him from the police dept!

  12. Cathy McCormick says:

    This POS so-called “law enforcement officer” is an animal abuser, and an animal killer, with no regard for living creatures! He needs to permanently lose his badge, and then, be hung upside down by his balls!

  13. This evil scum I’d love to bake in my oven on low gas so he could feel the pain and when he’s burnt feed to him to killer sharks! These poor defenceless dogs died a horrific and painful death at his hands. I say an eye for an eye and a bake for a bake! Bake the scum to his death! When he’s not human, why should we be human with him! Evil monster scum of the earth. I hope you die screaming!!!

  14. He needs to be treated the same way he treated these poor puppies. Let him cook in the heat like he did to them. What goes around comes around

  15. Boil him alive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Poor, sweet pups.

  16. Timothy Morris says:

    No one’s Above the Law he should pay like everyone else

  17. This vile, mentally deranged severe dog abuser definitely requires instigation of the death penalty and nothing less. A slow and agonizing extermination of this evil cretin is essential!

  18. Joyce McCollum says:

    No animal deserves what he did. I hope he will lose his badge and be punished. Bulldogs especially are fragile dogs in spite of their size,no animal should suffer this way. My heart.is so sad so sad.

  19. Elease M. Bradford says:

    I’m so sorry Storm, Luke and Lala suffered such agonizing deaths. May they rest in peace. I’m glad poor Aegis was rescued before it was too late. Eric Tolbert ought to be ashamed of himself for neglecting these innocent fur babies and allowing them to suffer. He needs to be punished and not allowed to be around anymore animals because he’s incapable of taking care of them.
