Target: Salem Superior Court, Honorable Judith Fabricant, Chief Justice
Goal: Demand justice for allegedly murdered canines, including two puppies hung to death by their collars.
Two men in Salem, Massachusetts pleaded not guilty to killing four dogs, two of which were puppies allegedly hung from their collars until they suffocated. One of the dogs reportedly died when its ears had been cropped with scissors and another had been fed Valium.
Jason Gentry and Dominick Donovan were charged with animal cruelty. According to Donovan, the puppies Gotti and Livid were hung by their collars until they died and Gentry held the trash bag open to put the bodies in. After its ear was cropped with household scissors, another puppy was killed after Donovan claims to have bound the puppies’ muzzles and paws with duct tape. Allegedly, Gentry held the dogs as they were bound.
The last dog, Wootan, died after he was fed Valium with pieces of meat used to lure him into him into a carrier. It is assumed that the dogs were killed because they did not meet Donovan’s “designer breed” status (not recognized by the American Kennel Club).
Gentry is charged with a total of 12 counts of animal cruelty. He also is charged with operating the unlicensed kennel where three of the dogs died. However, Gentry has not been convicted on any charges and was released on a $1500 bail with a series of conditions set by the judge, including serving as a witness against Donovan.
It is absolutely unacceptable that either of these criminals and animal abusers be released–they should be convicted for all their charges of animal cruelty and murder. Demand justice for the puppies and dogs killed and help convict their murderers for this gruesome animal cruelty.
Dear Honorable Chief Justice Judith Fabricant,
Jason Gentry and Dominick Donovan pleaded not guilty to killing four dogs, two of which were puppies allegedly hung from their collars until they suffocated. After its ear was cropped with household scissors, another puppy was killed after Donovan claims to have bound the puppies’ muzzles and paws with duct tape. The fourth dog died after he was fed Valium in meat used to lure him into him into a carrier.
These animal abusers should not be released on such light terms. They did not stop their murdering after the first two counts and will not hesitate to ruthlessly take another life when given the opportunity. These killings were violent and pointless and should have more serious consequences. I demand justice for the puppies and dogs killed and that their murderers are convicted for this gruesome animal cruelty.
[Your Name Here]
