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. YET ANOTHER DISGUSTING CASE OF BLATANT NEGLECT AND UNSPEAKABLE ANIMAL ABUSE IN GEORGIA!!! GREAT CALLING CARD FOR GEORGIA!!!!

  2. Punish to the fullest! He’s a dirty cop and should not get away with murder! No longer allow him to own pets and he must pay a huge donation to a local shelter.

  3. Do not sweep this under the rug and let him get away with this terrible case of animal cruelty. He should be fired and never be allowed to own any more animals for the rest of his miserable life. You must get justice for these poor dogs.

  4. Jaime Perez says:

    That dirty, stinking creep deserves NO mercy. Punish him to full extent of the law. No slap on the wrist for this filthy minded monster. Fire him immediately and never let him go near an animal again.

  5. This CRUEL DEPUTY should be put in a HOT PEN & LEFT OUTSIDE IN THE SCORCHING HEAT FOR THE REST OF HIS MISERANLE LIFE!!! He should NEVER EVER BECALLOWED TO OEN, ADOPTED, WORK WITH OR NEAR AS WELL BE ANT WHERE AROUND ANOTHER DOG AND ALL OTHER AMIMALS!!!!!!!!

  6. I would hope the police department would be up in arms about this cruelty because he almost killed a police dog and they are not cheap. This idiot should not be a cop and be allowed to carry a gun, he is too stupid and cannot make proper decisions obviously.
    Probably will be ignored and life will go on for this POS and the dogs will be buried and the buddy cop system will be in full swing. RIP sweet dogs and so happy the dog cop made it, please do not give this numb nut another chance to kill more dogs, FIRE THIS IDIOT BEFORE HE KILLS A TWO LEGGED COP.

  7. Strip this flaming asshole of any credentials associated with law enforcement he us an abuser of animals, doesn’t deserve to own or train another animal ever, hope this dick dies not have children or produces any!

  8. Laura Rolder says:

    This is devastating. He is in law enforcement he isto serve and protect. These dogs are living beings and he should have served and protected them and he failed them by murdering them in Scorching heat!! My heart breaks for the pain they sufferd. Now it’s our time to make sure Justice for these innocent animals is served. NO SLAP on the WRIST!! it’s a FELONY!! He must be locked away behind bars for Max time for each dog he killed.Then banned from ever owning Or being around any animals for his entire life.

  9. Adrienne+Kaiser says:

    Why do LEOs try to protect other LEOs who commit heinous crimes as in this cause of aggravated animal cruelty?? LEOs should not only be held to a higher standard than a civilian, but should also be prosecuted just like a civilian, if not more because they are supposed to uphold the law!! This POS LEO showed blatant disregard for the dogs well-being that were in his care. He does not deserve to wear a badge or ever own, care for, or be around another dog!! He needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law without exceptions!! Animal cruelty and abuse will continue unless LEOs, prosecutors, and judges give these POS offenders the MAX penalties!!!!! They are just as guilty of the crime as the perpetrator if they do not literally make him pay the max fine and do the max time!!!

  10. Sheriff’s deputy Eric Tolbert’s badge does not mean that he is above the law. In my opinion if he is found guilty for the horrific deaths of 3 innocent lives he should be prosecuted to the fullest extent that the law will allow. These poor dogs suffered a horrific death. Please be a voice for these innocent dogs.

  11. This guy should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and never allowed near an animal ever again!!!!!!!!!!!! He should also be stripped of his badge and never allowed to wear one ever again!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope Aegis receives a wonderful, loving forever home!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. I have myself a lovely Ambull….cannot think how someone could do that to such a angelsoul….. Rest in peace, dear doggies, you never deserved such crime…

  13. Agree all comments tie this cunt up in the sun till this fucker dies a slow death. Justice needs to get their arse into gear and deal with these fuckers who are cruel . Judges also need to be sacked cause they are fucken uuseless. Too much of thos goes on and the punishment is bullshit the laws need to change to own buy and breed animals worldwide.

  14. Unacceptable. He’s no better than anyone else. Evidently he should not be in law enforcement. Give him time in jail . These dogs did not deserve this . He does .

  15. Poor babies, this man needs the harshest punishment, he should know better, how can people trust him when he has such disregard for an innocent, loyal and loving being, he’s a disgrace to his profession

  16. In addition all expenses for the trained Police dog along with medical care should be charged Eric Tolberts . Lock him up for good and let the inmates take care of his coward ass!

  17. DO THE SAME THING WITH THAT MONSTER. NO MERCY.

  18. DO THE SAME THING WITH THAT MONSTER. NO MERCY.
    IT IS THE FIRST TIME I SAY THAT.

  19. Why can’t this bastard simply be roasted to death in hot sunshine and got rid of for good….?

  20. Police are to up hold the law whether it is to save humans or animals. Fire and prosecute this deputy.
