Find and Punish Suspect Accused of Leaving Dog to Die

Target: George Gascón, District Attorney of Los Angeles County, CA

Goal: Prosecute person who zip-tied and abandoned dog to fullest extent.

Rock climbers at California’s Malibu Creek Canyon made a disturbing discovery. About 250 feet down from a roadway, the climbers found an ailing German Shepherd. The dog, having spent an unknown amount of time in the wilderness, had inflammation and lesions from apparent poison oak exposure. But it was the findings on the dog’s muzzle and mouth that really shook the good Samaritans. The animal was bound by zip ties in these regions, which indicates he was intentionally abandoned and left to a bleak fate.

Fortunately, the climbers were able to gain the German Shepherd’s trust and take him to safety. His wounds have been treated and he is now on the road to recovery. This poor animal’s ordeal will not truly be over, however, until he receives justice.

Local police are actively investigating the case. Sign the petition below to call on prosecutors to seek maximum charges when a suspect is identified and apprehended.


Dear DA Gascón,

“Someone did this intentionally. They left him stranded, down a hill in the middle of nowhere off the side of the road. They left him suffering. They left him for dead. I am still trying to wrap my mind around what happened, but I know something needs to be done to find the person who did it.”

One of the individuals who helped rescue a zip-tied and abandoned dog in Malibu Creek Canyon had these strong words. The animal in question was described as having a “sweet” demeanor, which means he was likely acclimated to and trusting of humans. Someone broke that trust, and this person needs to be held to account.

When a person of interest is identified in this case, please be vigilant in seeking and securing a punishment that fits this horrific reported crime.
