Justice for Opossum Found Alive With Arrows Through Head

Opposum_1[1]

Target: Riverside, California District Attorney Michael Hestrin

Goal: Ensure the maximum penalty for the person who shot an opossum in the head with two crossbow arrows.

An opossum was found with two crossbow arrows in its head. Both arrows completely penetrated the opossum’s head, one near its eye. Photos of the animal were released and one shows the poor opossum attempting to remove one of the arrows himself. To animal control officers’ amazement, it managed to survive and was rushed to a veterinarian for surgery.

The Riverside County Department of Animal Services is investigating and looking for the person responsible for this deplorable, violent crime. Anybody capable of this level of cruelty to an innocent animal is a danger to all living beings and should be locked away from society. Please demand that the person who committed this horrendous act of violence against a helpless animal be given the most severe penalty possible, when found.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Hestrin,

An opossum was found alive with two arrows in its head. The poor animal had clearly been shot with a crossbow by a human who is cruel, dangerous, and has no regard for other life. The opossum was attempting to remove one of the arrows from its head when officers arrived and rushed him to a shelter for surgery.

The suffering the opossum had to endure was probably horrifying. Shooting it was cruel enough, but to leave it to suffer like that just shows what a monster the offender must be. We urge you to display zero tolerance towards such brutal cruelty and help see to it that the person responsible for this receives the most severe penalty the law can allow.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Opossums are incredible animals. They can be bitten by a poisonous snake & the venom does nothing to the possom. Some research is being done to understand why. So treat all possoms like a friend & leave it alone because they may save a life one day. The exception would be the bastards that hurt this possom.

    Is there a national database of crossbow owners (with fingerprints), that would show up local residents who had one? If not, maybe there should be, or does the NRA have this covered too?
