Dog Allegedly Kicked and Hung Deserves Justice

Target: Reid McCain, District Attorney of Harrison County, TX

Goal: Punish man accused of assaulting his pet dog in public.

Another brazen act of animal cruelty allegedly took place in plain sight in a Texas town. Witnesses claimed they saw a man forcefully kicking his dog before he reportedly hung the animal by the leash from a door handle. Worse yet, one of the witnesses claims that the suspect—Jacob Edwards—confessed to routinely beating the pup.

An officer on the scene detained Edwards and questioned him. He is now facing charges of causing pain and suffering to an animal. Thankfully, the dog is said to be recovering. And authorities have confirmed he will not be returned to Edwards.

Sign the petition below to urge a just resolution and appropriate penalty in the event of a guilty conviction.


Dear DA McCain,

“We encourage people to call police if they see something like this.” These words from the Marshall police chief relate to the alleged animal cruelty against a dog that reportedly took place in public view. With apparent witnesses and the account of a responding officer, justice should be attainable in this disturbing case.

The community needs to know that when it does report suspected crimes, they will be prosecuted to the fullest extent. Please seek maximum charges for the sake of this recovering animal and for the deterrence of future acts of violence.

  1. I am so glad that this defenseless dog has been rescued, thanks to the witnesses the police officer, the authorities for making the right decision and everyone involved. Pets should never be returned to their abusive owners. Please find the dog a loving family and home.

  2. Just hang this useless moron.

  3. Such a cruel man, such an evil owner. I am glad the dog will survive and that police took this seriously. This man should never be around or own animals again. This man doesn’t deserve the love animals give. He needs a mental evaluation and prison time. This has to be a felony evening Texas. Hopefully the dog will find a wonderful forever home but anything would be better than living in terror of this horrible person.

  4. Elease M. Bradford says:

    Jacob Edwards is a deranged, depraved piece of slime for abusing this innocent fur baby. He needs to be severely punished and banned from being around animals. I’m glad this pup was finally rescued and I wish him a speedy recovery and that he gets justice.

  5. This vile, mentally deranged severe dog abuser requires instigation of the death penalty and nothing less!

  6. Just kill him
