Justice for Puppy Allegedly Thrown From Car Window at Shelter

Target: Ashley Hornsby Welch, District Attorney for Swain County, NC

Goal: Prosecute man accused of abandoning and causing injury to defenseless puppy to fullest extent.

A small puppy became the focus of a week-long search in a rural North Carolina town. Video captured a man allegedly driving up to an animal shelter and throwing the puppy out the window before taking off. While it took some time for worried shelter workers to locate the pup, he was eventually found bruised and malnourished but alive. The rough manner of the alleged abandonment had also apparently caused some bone fractures.

David Paul George has since been reportedly identified as the person in the video. He has been charged with animal cruelty and abandonment. The puppy, now named Apollo, is in recovery and has already drawn much interest for future adoption.

While his harrowing journey has a happy ending, he now needs the full measure of justice. Sign the petition below to demand the maximum penalty be sought in this disturbing case.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear DA Welch,

Swain County lacks a real animal control or ordinance structure and relies solely on the good work of one shelter. These unfortunate circumstances have compounded the potential for acts of brazen abandonment and cruelty while making the mission of this shelter all the more difficult. The recent case involving the alleged abandonment and subsequent search for Apollo the puppy highlights this problem.

“This morning, even though our gate was open he chose to sling a puppy out the window.” This is how a shelter representative described the circumstances that brought Apollo to attention. When he was located, the young animal had reportedly endured malnourishment, bone fractures, and other threats to his health.

David Paul George, the man charged in this incident, should face full repercussions if he is found guilty of this egregious act. Please send a message that in Swain County, innocent animals still matter.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    I would be so very happy to see this shit flung from a high rocky cliff to his death. NO SECOND CHANCE WHEN YOU ARE THAT SADISTIC!

    All he had to do was bring Apollo inside ….you vile MF!!!

  2. I strongly agree there was no excuse for this. That monster deserves to at least go to jail. I like what someone else said about throwing the monster off a cliff. I’m glad this puppy will recover.

  3. this is a very cruel and intentionally act on the part of the man. throw the book at him. i don’t believe he would like being thrown out of the window.

  4. Poor puppy, hope he is ok 😞
    People are so evil towards pets..
    He should be thrown from a cliff. 🙂

  5. Animals shall not be victims of psychopathic human monsters, and they deserve justice – just like YOU and ME.
    MAX JAIL for this human monster. He must also be forbidden from owning animals ever again!

  6. That poor puppy! Catch that jackass and throw him out the window of a moving vehicle at full speed! It certainly can do brain damage to one so lacking!

  7. Throw him over a cliff going 100 miles an hour. Poor Apollo looks shaken.
    These subhumans need to be eliminated, Certainly know they should not be looking after a defenseless, living being.

  8. Prosecute this man with prison and payment of Vet bills. How cruel to throw the dog out of a car window when he was at a shelter. Just walk in and release the dog if you no longer want him. His injuries and malnutrition were unnecessary. Such cruelty shows we need strict animal cruelty laws immediately!

    Euthanize the offender(s) of this heinous crime.

  10. SO SAD FOR THIS HARMLESS INNOCENT PUPPY!!!
    THE ONLY PLACE THIS PUPPY ABUSER DESERVES IS A PRISON CELL!!!! HE IS A MONSTER WHO DOES NOT CARE ABOUT A TINY INNOCENT DOGS LIFE!!!
    HE WILL NOT STOP ABUSING ANIMALS UNTIL PROSECUTED AND LOCKED UP!!!

    • There is a much BETTER place for this bastard and that is six feet under the ground where he will never harm another innocent animal.
      Pricks like this have NO conscience whatever they do and need to be erased!
      Easy to say I know but very hard to actually do. If you are a normal clean living person, you cannot just go and terminate someone. It is against our nature as normal humans!
      But a ‘fired up mob’ or vigilante group all in the same mind could accomplish this. O.K, not necessarily to kill them ‘Although that would be good’ but as the expression is termed, beat the bastards so bad that their own Mother would not recognise them.
      The grapevine could then hopefully portray to other animal torturing bastards what will happen to them if they are caught.
      Needs to happen, and pretty sure is going to happen before long to these waste of space arrogant tossers.

        Another low-life mother-fucker that is going to get away with hurting an innocent dog. Does anyone want to bet me a lot of money that this sonofabitch won’t spend one day in jail and will probably not be fined on top of it? And will probably own another dog in a short amount of time. This shit is never going to stop until someone or some group starts hunting these bastards down and eliminating from this earth. Because one thing is for damn sure. The law, the courts and the judges are not going to do a damn thing to stop it. Someone needs to start a list of animal abusers and killers. Make a list, check it twice. Find out who’s been naughty or nice. The nice ones get to live. The naughty ones get to die!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Throw the book at this piece of trash!! Poor poor puppy!! I hope Apollo heals quickly and finds a loving forever home!!!

  12. That is so disgusting and inhumane to treat a baby dog that way. What a filthy pos monster this slime ball is. Make him pay all vet bills and throw his worthless, nasty self in jail for a very long time!!

  13. Every other day – or ‘every day’, there is some tow rag abusing and torturing animals. I believe that one reason is the majority of male offenders who commit these atrocities upon innocent animals have one inch dicks or cannot ‘get it up’ so have to take out their sick frustrations on innocent animals that cannot fight back!
    And this tosser, Well we have a name so someone must know where this piece of crap lives!
    As many submissions here say ‘an eye for an eye’ this the ONLY WAY to stop these asswipes from committing animal abuse and torture.
    I know it is just my summery of what I would like to do to this prick which would be to attach the bastard under restraint of course to a bungee jump and before he was kicked over the edge, just say the elastic rope was going to be cut on the way down! Nice thought but doubt would ever happen.
    But let the punishment fit the crime.
    If anyone or gang could ‘attend’ to this scumbag say on a dark night when he was located, then that would be very good.
    And if the bastard did not survive, then so be it. Leave no evidence, scram before the lazy cops arrive and sleep well afterwards. These ‘sikko’s’ have got to learn the HARD WAY that cruelty to any living and feeling animal really DOES NOT PAY!!

  14. Absolutely No Tolerance Towards Animal Abuse n Cruelty

  15. Bernhard Yolanda says:

    my heart is bleeding
    how many of these poor angels still have to suffer and die because of piles of rubbish like these “people”.

  16. WHAT A MONSTER IS THIS??? DO THE SAME WITH HIM. THROW HIM OUT OF A WINDOW OF A TRUCK AND LET SOME TRUCKS DRIVE OVER HIM. NO MERCY.

  17. Today a puppy tomorrow a child. Fling him into a river filled with crocodiles

  18. DRIVE TO THE EDGE OF A CLIFF AND THROW THIS PIECE OF HUMAN SHIT OUT OF THE CAR WINDOW…THAT WILL CURE HIM

  19. This is attempted murder, and abandonment. 25 years to life
