Dog With Artery Exposed by Six-Pound Chain Deserves Justice

roxanne-pitbull-by- Rescue-Dogs-Rock-NYCTarget: Alan Wilson, Attorney General of South Carolina

Goal: Find and prosecute whomever is responsible for abusing a dog found with a six-pound chain around her neck exposing her main artery.

A dog was reportedly found with a six-pound chain wrapped around her neck, causing her main artery to be exposed. The one-year-old pit bull terrier, named Roxanne, was barely alive and her head was swollen beyond belief. Veterinarians had to use bolt cutters to get the chain off, then Roxanne was rushed for emergency surgery where 95 percent of her neck was stitched up. They stated that her entire neck was open and bleeding from the chain that was slowly choking her to death.

The veterinarians and rescue team who are assisting Roxanne with her fight to survive say that they notified authorities of the horrific abuse. So far, it would appear that this innocent dog’s abuser is still at large. Please sign this petition urging authorities to utilize all resources to find and prosecute this cruel animal abuser to the maximum extent.


Dear Mr. Wilson,

A dog was reportedly found with a six-pound chain around her neck, choking her nearly to death and exposing her entire neck, including her main artery. To save her life, veterinarians say they had to stitch up 95 percent of her neck.

This poor dog was being slowly choked to death at the hands of a sadistic human, who hasn’t been found yet. We urge you to utilize all resources available to find whomever caused this animal such unspeakable suffering and prosecute them to the maximum extent.

    We believe karma does come around. Hope it’s 100 x’s worse than what this poor dog had to endure.

    This despicable abuser is nothing but a coward! He or she must be found, charged, prosecuted and served with a very, very long jail sentence, no question. Our animals cannot neither speak up or protect themselves from such cruelty and abuse, so we will be their voice and defend them from evil humans who choose to inflict harm and suffering. This abuser must be found before he/she subjects another vulnerable creature to such disturbing cruelty.

    Death to animal abusers

  6. Notice the extreme swelling of the dog’s head due to the abuse…….the dog must have been in extreme pain…..and it nearly died due to the chain cutting into an artery.
