Elderly Dog Burned in His Own Backyard Deserves Justice

Target: Rachel Mitchell, District Attorney of Phoenix, Arizona

Goal: Secure justice for elderly dog horrifically burned to death in a deliberate attack.

Shocking reports have emerged about a horrific act of cruelty inflicted upon an innocent, elderly dog named Duke, in Phoenix. An unknown assailant drenched him in gasoline and set him aflame in his backyard. The brutality of this attack on a defenseless animal, peacefully asleep behind his home, strikes a chord of outrage and demands immediate attention.

Further distressing details reveal that Duke, a 16-year-old pit bull-mastiff mix, suffered from severe burns so catastrophic that euthanasia was deemed the only merciful option. This cruel incident not only highlights a disturbing act of violence but also raises alarm over the safety and well-being of animals in our communities. Silent Witness and PETA, in response, have combined their resources to offer a reward totaling $9,000 for information leading to the arrest of the individual responsible.

The necessity for action is clear. We urge immediate measures to ensure the individual allegedly behind this heinous act is apprehended and faces the full extent of the law. This petition calls on the District Attorney to prioritize this case, ensuring justice for Duke and preventing future acts of violence against animals. Do not such cruelty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear DA Rachel Mitchell,

A case has emerged from Phoenix that encapsulates a horrific act of cruelty against a defenseless elderly dog. Reportedly, an individual doused Duke, a 16-year-old pit bull-mastiff mix, in gasoline and set him on fire while he was asleep in his backyard. The severity of Duke’s injuries led to the heartrending decision to euthanize him, to alleviate his suffering from the severe burns inflicted upon him.

The community is in shock, mourning the loss of Duke and deeply concerned about the safety of other animals. This act of cruelty not only took Duke’s life in a most barbaric manner but also posed a stark question about our society’s tolerance for violence against animals. The rewards offered by Silent Witness and PETA reflect the public’s desire for justice and the urgency of apprehending the individual responsible for preventing future acts of cruelty.

We implore you, as the District Attorney, to take swift and decisive action in this case. It’s crucial that thorough investigations are conducted to bring the perpetrator to justice, ensuring such a heinous act does not go unpunished. This will not only serve justice for Duke but also demonstrate a commitment to safeguarding the welfare of all animals in our community.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Leave politics out of this it hss nothing to do with it. Too many animals are being abuse and tortured it NEEDS TO BE STOPPED! Yes a dog could love being outside but not sleeping out there and never chained up. It lraves the dog (Duke) defensiveless against anyone or anythingeven an animalor a snake where he lived. FIND THE PERSON THAT DID THIS AND DO THE SAME THING TO THEM. A far as the owners should never be allowed to have another pet and fined for this. Rest in peace Duke you are running pain free and healed on the rainbow bridge.

    OH MY GOD!! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THESE EVIL, VILE SO CALLED `HUMANS`. THIS HAS TO BE CHASED AND PUNISHED HEAVILY. SUCH CRUEL, WICKED, VILE ACTION TOWARDS AN ANIMAL WILL NEVER, EVER, EVER BE OK.
    I CANT TELL YOU WHAT I WOULD DO TO THAT PATHETIC EXCUSE FOR A `HUMAN`, BUT IT IS ALONG THE LINES OF A TASTE OF HIS/HER OWN MEDICINE.
    YOU MUST TAKE ACTION TO FIND AND PUNISH THIS WASTE OF SPACE ON THIS EARTH AND PUNISH HIM/HER TO THE HIGHEST DEGREE. MAKE AN EXAMPLE OF HIM/HER AND SOME…NOW.
    SUCH TERRIBLE PAIN INFLICTED ON ANY LIVING BEING WILL NEVER BE OK. YOU AND OTHERS LIKE YOU ARE THE REASON THIS EARTH AND THOSE UPON IT ARE IN TURMOIL.
    YOUR PUNISHMENT, WHETHER DEAR OR ALIVE WILL ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS FIND YOU….ITS CALLED KARMA AND IT DOESNT MATTER WHETHER YOU BELIEVE IN IT OR NOT….YOUR OWN ACTIONS HAVE MADE IT. YOU DISGUST ME AND MAKE MY SKIN CRAWL.

  3. I hope Phoenix, Arizona acts quickly and catch this son of bitch to regain and maintain the trust and confidence of the community following this brazen home invasion and brutal attack on innocent Duke! RIP poor Duke <3.

  4. This only makes me want to vomit hearing this. What a sad ending to what mayor may not have been 16 years of a wonderful life. That I’m thinking to get to 16 if it was a bad home. That wasn’t the case. It was a wonderful home and family. This person will do this again. The person is seeking to get attention and has no regard to life and quite possibly their own and the best case scenario suicide would be a blessing the person will deal with themselves.

  5. This sick SOB needs to be made to suffer, as the victim of his unimaginable cruelty did. I’m sure plenty of people would volunteer to help with that. If they can do that to an innocent animal, I doubt they would hesitate to do it to an innocent person. Euthanasia for them.

  7. Find this CRUEK & ABUSIVE ASSHOLE AND POUR GASOLINE ALL OVER HIM AND LIGHT HIM ON FIRE AS THIS ASSHOLE DID TO THIS INNOCENT DEFENSELESS DOG DUKE WHOM DIDN’T DESERVE THIS CRUEL TORTURE!!!!

  8. Jane Todaro says:

    The perpetrator of this horrific, outrageous, horrendously cruel and violent act should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and never allowed near an animal ever again!!!!!!!!!!!! What is the matter with some people???????!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Fucking find and kill this bastard! This scumbag isn’t even human!

  10. This savage brutality needs to be done to the scumbag that committed this horrific act. The government needs to show that this and other horrific acts will not be tolerated!!!!!!! The acts they commit should be done to them!!!

  11. Stephanie Geyser says:

    I wonder if the guilty party will one day set his grandparents on fire as well, while they are sleeping peacefully in their beds? God help all old people (and animals) if this is the case.

  12. I have no words for this atrocity…

    Watch neighbors cameras and arrest and put this piece of crap in prison
