Target: Thurston County Prosecuting Attorney Jon Tunheim
Goal: Hunt down and give the maximum punishment to the individual who raped and brutally murdered a pit bull.
A pit bull was found hanging dead from a tree with wounds that suggested extensive sexual assault in Thurston County, Washington. A mountain biker came across the poor dog’s body recently, and the local Humane Society is offering a $5,000 award for information on the person or persons involved in this horrific crime. A board member donated the money to increase to award to double what it normally would be.
This is such a severe case of animal abuse that even the FBI is involved. The county police department is also hard at work trying to track down whoever did this to an innocent dog. People who commit this kind of abuse upon animals are not only likely to do it again, but to escalate to committing violence upon humans. It’s imperative that the individual[s] who raped and murdered this pit bull is caught and put away for a long time before they do it again.
It’s a good sign that the authorities are taking this case so seriously, but we need to make sure that once this person is caught, they’re given the maximum punishment allowable by law. Sign to demand justice for this tortured animal and ensure that those responsible for this murder are prevented from committing more violence.
Dear Mr. Tunheim,
You may have heard about the pit bull recently found dead in the woods, hung from a tree until she died from asphyxiation. There was also evidence that she had been horrifically sexually assaulted before being killed. This terrible crime was committed in your county, and the culprit or culprits have yet to be found.
Not only is this an awful thing to do to a completely innocent being, it’s been found that people who abuse animals like this tend to escalate until they eventually start attacking humans. Whoever raped and murdered this pit bull needs to be put away for a long time so that they can’t hurt any more animals or any people. As the county prosecutor, you have the opportunity to pursue the maximum charges for this crime once the perpetrator is caught.
Luckily, the Humane Society has issued double the usual reward for information about the crime and the FBI is involved in catching the culprit[s]. Once they’re caught, it’s your job to make sure real justice is done. Please commit to ensuring that the dangerous person or people behind this crime are given a long prison sentence.
