Target: Philipe Pichet, Director of the Montreal Police Department
Goal: Quickly apprehend person who threw razor-laden meat into dog owner’s yard.
A dog had to undergo emergency surgery after ingesting razor-filled meatballs that were left on the ground deliberately. The meatballs were laden with X-Acto style blades before reportedly being thrown over a dog owner’s fence. According to owner Pierre Szalowski, this looks to be a disturbing targeted attack on his pets.
The dog, named Molly, reportedly ate the meatball while out for a walk in her own backyard. Soon afterward, her owners noticed cuts on her mouth and throat. Molly was immediately transported to a veterinary clinic where she underwent emergency surgery, likely saving her life. Because of this quick action, Molly is expected to fully recover with little more than a surgical scar on her belly.
The incident has shocked the entire neighborhood, with some nearby dog owners now apprehensive about walking their dogs. According to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) representative Rachel Bellis, whoever is responsible for this act is “a threat to the community and may very well strike again.”
Unfortunately, the person responsible for this barbaric crime remains at large. Currently, the police are asking for any witnesses to come forward, while PETA is offering a $5,000 reward for anyone with information that leads to the culprit’s arrest. In order to secure the safety of all the neighborhood pets, it is imperative that the person responsible is found immediately. Sign the petition below to ask police to dedicate extra resources to this case in order to quickly apprehend the offender.
Dear Mr. Pichet,
A dog was seriously injured after ingesting razor-laden meatballs apparently left out deliberately. According to the owner, the meat appeared to have been thrown over the fence specifically for his dogs. Fortunately, diligent owners noticed the injuries right away and were able to transport the dog, named Molly, for emergency surgery. Molly is expected to recover fully.
This intentional attempt to kill a dog has created a sense of unease among dog owners in the neighborhood, and some suspect that the perpetrator will strike again. In order to ensure the safety of Rosemont pets, the person responsible for this crime must be apprehended immediately. We, the undersigned, ask you to dedicate extra resources to this case in order to quickly find the culprit.
[Your Name Here]
