Justice for Dog Apparently Stabbed, Choked to Death, and Left in Dumpster

Target: Mark Messmer, Indiana Senate Majority Leader

Goal: Support tougher sentences for animal cruelty felony convictions.

The city of Indianapolis was shocked and sickened when a deceased dog was discovered in a dumpster. After an examination, reports confirmed that this animal, named Deron, had likely been stabbed and choked to death. Four people have since been charged with animal cruelty, including one defendant who later came under suspicion for the shooting death of a person.

The horrifying incident has sparked a new legislative push for tougher animal cruelty laws. A state senator from Indianapolis, where the alleged crime took place, has introduced a bill that if passed would become law across Indiana. Under the legislation, several types of animal cruelty would be reclassified from level five felonies to level six felonies. As a result, sentences in the event of convictions would yield significantly longer prison terms of up to six years.

Sign the petition below to support this strongly backed call for greater accountability in the worst cases of animal cruelty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senator Messmer,

SB41, which enhances penalties for the most heinous animal cruelty felonies, has immense popular backing. Senator J.D. Ford, who introduced the bill, said of the initiative: “we too often hear terrible stories of animal cruelty in Indiana, including in Indy just a few months ago.” He believes this measure would “ensure that the penalty for animal cruelty better aligns with the crime after listening to the folks who want justice for animals in these cases” The incident of which the senator speaks involved the brutal apparent stabbing and choking death of a defenseless dog and the subsequent arrest of four individuals.

These suspects, and any future Indiana residents found guilty of animal cruelty, need to face the full measure of justice. At least one of the defendants in the aforementioned case allegedly went on to kill a person. Please send a decisive message that irreparable harm inflicted upon any vulnerable living being will not be tolerated in this state. Help pass SB41 as soon as possible.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
