Demand Stricter Punishment for Animal Cruelty Offenders


Target: Tate Reeves, Lieutenant Governor of Mississippi

Goal: Enact stricter animal protection laws after a cat is reportedly beaten to death.

A cat died after reportedly sustaining a vicious beating. A visitor allegedly attacked her at the Brookhaven National Rescue League Adoption Center (BARL). Demand that justice is served for this innocent cat.

Shelter workers found 3-year-old Tilly bleeding shortly after a visitor exited the BARL adoption center. Her blood covered the walls and a plastic stick was found nearby. Though rushed to the vet immediately, Tilly did not survive her injuries. A man has been arrested and charged with animal cruelty, but reports state that he is already out on bond.

In Mississippi, animal cruelty is only a misdemeanor charge on the first attempt. This makes it highly unlikely that this offender, if convicted, will receive suitable punishment for his crime. Sign below and demand that stricter laws are put in place in order to prevent animal cruelty.


Dear Lt. Governor Reeves,

A cat died after she was reportedly beaten in an animal shelter. Workers found 3-year-old Tilly bloody and in pain following a visit with a potential adopter. We demand that justice is served for this innocent cat.

A shelter worker returned to find blood splattered across the room. Tilly’s odd behavior and a broken stick in the corner told the rest of the story. Though the worker rushed Tilly to the vet, she died from her injuries.

A man has been charged with animal cruelty in this case but will only face a misdemeanor charge due to this being his first attempt. This is unacceptable. Animal abuse should be a felony every time. We demand that stricter laws are set in place against animal abusers.

  1. This is a violent criminal who brazenly tortured an innocent animal, at a shelter. He’s dangerous and quite bold. He thinks he’s smarter than the police and the shelter, and he thinks he won’t b punished , prove this dangerous criminal wrong. Punish this price of trash to the fullest extent possible.

      Rather beat him almost to death with a bat and let him suffer for a few days before the piece of shit dies.

  4. Nancy Dunlap says:

    These abusers deserve HARSH punishments!!

  5. Where were the others who were supposed to be in charge of the shelter??? Why was he left alone in the first place???? What I would give for an hour or two alone with this pos.

    • Exactly Laura, talk about irresponsible! This creep was a complete stranger so they leave him alone with a cat! They need their arses kicked and he needs executed.

  6. This is Mississippi, so we can’t expect much to happen to animal abusers, These politicians in this state are already brain dead.

  7. I will never understand how can you dare abuse, beat, torture and kill a cat even i hate when they talk bad to them and insult them, no matter his appareance or behavior it’s so sad. RIP Tilly and so many other cats.
    And so many other animals in jail and hell for hurman’s greed and “safety”! what they are ignorant and have a great life meanwhile they suffer every day with these sadists again and again.

  8. Bev Woodburn says:

    How I hate and despise the heartless and sadistic non human monsters who deliberately torture helpless and innocent animals.
    The f—— sadistic and heartless arse hole who committed this sadism and evilness must be penalised to the fullest extent of the law for deliberate animal torture and suffering and jailed for life. This f— will continue torturing the innocent unless IT is locked up for the rest of ITS life. I just pray someone will end ITS horrible and sadistic life. It is what this f— deserves.

      Lynn, I feel that same hatred and it runs deep in my soul for people (?) Who are not worthy to live in society. There is one word that describes those maggots in a pile of ratshit, and that word is COWARD!
