Justice for Dog Who Allegedly Had Ears and Leg Cut Off Without Anesthesia

dog-eyes-by-AngieJohnston

Target: Hon. Angelo Delligatti, Nassau County Supreme Court

Goal: Enforce a stricter punishment for vet tech who cut off a dog’s ears and leg without anesthesia.

A convicted animal abuser has gone free in New York. Reginald Smith pleaded guilty to multiple charges of animal abuse totaling two felonies and a misdemeanor. The dog, a pit bull mix named Miss Harper, was allegedly subjected to painful mutilation in Smith’s care. Demand that the Supreme Court reconsider this decision and ensure justice for this innocent dog.

Once a veterinary technician, Smith worked at the Animal Hospital of Elmont in New York. In July of 2013, he performed an operation on a seven-month-old pit bull, allegedly removing her ears and leg without using anesthetic. It is still not clear why he performed this operation. The dog sustained horrific injuries and suffered greatly. When she was rescued by the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), her stump had still not closed and was causing her great pain. The SPCA has been following Miss Harper’s case closely since the shocking details came into light. It was reported that an SPCA representative even attempted to walk out of the courtroom due to his disgust with the verdict.

Smith faced up to two years in prison for charges of cruelty to animals, conspiracy, and unauthorized practice of a profession. Now, he has walked away with only three years conditional discharge with no jail time as long as he practices good behavior. Given the horrific nature of the alleged abuse, this cannot be tolerated. Sign below to join the SPCA in demanding that the Supreme Court reevaluate this case and grant a harsher punishment to this alleged abuser.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Hon. Angelo Delligatti,

Miss Harper, a pit bull mix, allegedly sustained horrific abuse at the hands of Reginald Smith. Her ears and leg were maliciously removed without the use of anesthesia. During the operation and since then she has endured a tremendous amount of pain and suffering due to her injuries. Now, after being sentenced to only three years conditional discharge, her abuser walks free.

We demand that you reexamine this verdict and call for a harsher punishment. If Reginald Smith walks free, then animals will continue to be in danger of harm at his hands. We ask for justice for Miss Harper so that no other animal will ever have to suffer at the hands of Reginald Smith.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  3. Stop the stupid in its tracks.

  4. I can not believe the cruelty human beings inflicted on defenseless animals are capable of! They must be devils in human disguise and should receive the maximum punishment possible! Judges who condone this torture are just as guilty!

  5. The judge that doled out that joke of a sentence should be removed as a judge. Apparently there were others that “assisted” the sicko in amputating this poor dog. Punish them as well!

  6. EVIL WICKED BASTARD….SOMEBODY MUST KNOW WHO THIS PSYCOPATHIC LOW LIFE SCUM BAG IS…..SOMEBODY FOR CHRIST SAKE DO THE SAME TO HIM….ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE THAT THIS VERMIN COULD INFLICT SUCH A HEINOUS ACT OF EXCRUCIATING PAIN AND CRUELTY ON THIS POOR DOG…HOW THE HELL HAS THE LAW IGNORED SUCH EVILNESS, THE JUDGE IS NO BETTER THAN THE PERPETRATOR OF SUCH EVIL TO LET THIS MONSTER GO TO PROBABLY DO THIS AGAIN, IF THE LAW WON’T DO ANYTHING LETS HOPE SOME ONE WILL, PUBLICISE IN THE NATIONAL NEWS PAPERS WHO THIS SCUM BAG IS THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO STOP PEOPLE LIKE THIS WHEN THE WORLD KNOWS WHO THEY ARE.

  7. bad decision to let this animal abuser walk for the crimes it committed on this great dog now.

  8. How can ANYONE inflict this kind of pain and torture on an innocent animal that you know must have been screaming in pain. Everyone of those barbaric bastards involved in this need a lengthy prison term, not a slap on the wrist!! How horrific!!! Makes me want to cry for this poor dog!

  9. How can animal abuse ever be stopped when there is no penalty for these unspeakable acts. What in the world was that judge thinking when she turned this monster free to do it again ???????

  10. The blatant disregard for animal suffering in this country is shameful! I agree with “bev t” … How can we STOP this type of outrageous torture if certain judges do not sentence these monsters to the fullest extent of the law?!? Wake up judge… if Reginald Smith can TORTURE a innocent dog in this barbaric way.. just think what he will do to an innocent child? Our laws need to be tougher! You harm an animal.. You go to jail! Period! No probation, no community service. That poor dog… My heart breaks ?
