Dog With Choke Chain Bolted Into Neck Deserves Justice


Target: R.J. Larizza, State Attorney

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the person who bolted a choke chain into a dog’s neck.

A dog was reportedly found bound to a tree with a choke chain bolted into his neck. He appeared starved and in great pain. Demand the maximum penalty for the person responsible for this abuse.

The brindle mix suffered from “repeated infliction and unnecessary pain and suffering,” stated police. A choke chain was embedded into his flesh with two dead bolt locks, leaving a gash nearly three inches deep. His ribs showed through his skin, indicating malnourishment, and he smelled of rotting flesh due to the infected cut on his neck.

The dog was taken to an emergency shelter and treated. The perpetrator is still at large. Sign below and demand the maximum penalty for the person responsible for this horrific abuse.


Dear State Attorney Larizza,

A dog suffered tremendous pain at the hands of his abuser. Found malnourished and with a choke chain embedded into his flesh, the dog is lucky to be alive. We demand the maximum penalty for the person responsible for this crime.

The bridle mix reportedly smelled of rotting flesh and appeared emaciated. A choke chain, embedded into the dog’s neck with two dead bolt locks, created a nearly three-inch cut in his skin. The cut oozed pus and other fluids, indicating infection. His ribs showed through his flesh due to malnourishment.

Such horrific abuse is unacceptable and must be punished. We ask that you pursue the maximum penalty under the law in this case.

    What is wrong with people like this ?

    How can they call their dog a pet or a family member if this is the way they treat them.

    This abuser should be banned from ever having pets again.
