Punish Teen Who Allegedly Cut Off Dog’s Ears


Target: Pitt County District Attorney Kimberley S. Robb

Goal: Punish a teen who allegedly cut off the ears of his pit bull.

A teenager is being held in custody after he allegedly cut off his dog’s ears. Jerome Johnson, who is 19 years old, was arrested and charged with felony animal cruelty for maiming and deforming an animal.

The alleged incident occurred in Winterville, North Carolina. After Johnson’s arrest, it was discovered that he was the animal’s owner. The dog, a brown pit bull, was taken into custody and treated after a collaboration between deputies and Pitt County Animal Control. It is now in the custody of Pitt Friends, a non-profit group that works with the Pitt County Animal Shelter to help animals and find new homes for them.

Johnson is being held in custody under a $53,000 bond. Sign the petition below and demand that Johnson receive the harshest possible penalties if found guilty.


Dear District Attorney Robb,

The maiming of a dog by its owner is a cruel and savage act that deserves the harshest of penalties. The teenager who allegedly carried out this heinous act, Jerome Johnson, had a responsibility to look after the animal in his care. Instead, reports claim that he callously cut off its ears. He is now being held under $53,000 bond and has been charged with felony animal cruelty for maiming and deforming an animal.

This type of behavior warrants the harshest penalties possible under the law. This poor animal was left to suffer and will forever be deformed. I urge you to demand that Johnson receive the maximum sentence possible for this crime if he is found guilty.

  1. I would quite happily cut off this evil Bastards ears and see how he likes it. F*****g psycho !!.,

    I agree with Carol Bowen! Let’s see how he likes it!

  4. A nineteen year old is old enough to know better and to take responsibility for his own actions. As much as I’d like to see “an eye for an eye” whenever animals are abused so heinously, I know that our so-called criminal justice system will never allow that to happen. So, at the very least, this heartless psychopath should receive the harshest punishment the courts are allowed to give … which of course will be nothing compared to what this poor helpless animal must face for the rest of it’s life. Justice will come in the afterlife !!!!!

    Kimberley – Please do the job you were hired to do and hand down the harshest penalty allowed under the law to the person responsible for this atrocity. Anything less would be an insult to those of us who tirelessly sign these animal cruelty petitions, not to mention the innocent victims themselves. The Animal Kingdom are citizens of this Earth and they deserve, and have earned, our respect and protection. Please! Do the right thing in this case…
