Target: Thomas J. Spota, Suffolk County District Attorney
Goal: Punish the person responsible for duct taping a dog’s mouth shut.
A dog was found beside a highway with duct tape around his muzzle. Unable to eat or drink, the young male dog wandered beside the road with no owner in sight. Demand justice for this innocent dog.
A witness was driving by when he found the German shepherd with his mouth taped shut. He immediately took a photo of the duct tape restraint and freed the dog. The dog is now recovering at the local animal shelter and investigations are underway. A $2,000 reward has been offered for anyone who can identify the person responsible. If caught and convicted, this person faces misdemeanor animal cruelty charges and could serve up to a year in prison.
This heinous abuse cannot be tolerated. Sign below and urge the maximum punishment for the person convicted of this crime.
Dear District Attorney Spota,
A dog was found with duct tape surrounding his muzzle. Unable to eat or drink, the dog was lucky to be found by a passing bystander before he became seriously ill. We demand justice for this innocent dog.
The dog’s mouth was taped completely shut, per the eyewitness. He took a quick photo to document the abuse before freeing the dog and contacting the police. The dog is now recovering in an animal shelter, but the person responsible is still at large.
This abuse cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty of one year in prison for the person convicted of this crime.
[Your Name Here]
