Dog Suffocated with Duct Tape Deserves Justice


Target: Lee Barton, Detective Senior Constable of Melbourne, Australia

Goal: Find and severely punish whoever is responsible for suffocating a dog with duct tape.

A nine-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier was reportedly suffocated with duct tape by a cruel intruder who’s still on the loose. The poor dog, named Toby, reportedly died in his owner’s backyard, which means that someone went to the home and deliberately killed him. Authorities said the incident appears random since there were no reports of Toby being a nuisance. The detectives spoke kindly of Toby, telling outlets that he was a friendly rescue dog who would never harm anyone.

The owner, a 71-year-old widow, had adopted Toby from an animal hospital five years ago. She has already experienced enough heartbreak and loss, and now she has to grieve for her poor dog who was violently murdered.

The person responsible for this senseless animal violence is a danger to other pets and society as a whole. Police urged any witnesses to come forward with information about the case. It’s imperative that this individual be found and punished before they escape justice. Please add your signature to the petition below to help bring Toby and his heartbroken owner the justice they deserve.


Dear Mr. Barton,

A dog was savagely murdered when someone wrapped duct tape around his mouth for no reason. According to detectives, an intruder suffocated the dog on its owner’s property, but the person hasn’t been found.

The owner, a 71-year-old widow, deserves the peace of knowing that her dog’s murderer is behind bars. Please utilize all resources to find the person who did this and ensure that they’re punished to the maximum extent.

    FBI STUDIES show that animal abusers those who abuse,torture and kill animals move on to doing the same to humans. FIND, AND THEN SEVERELY PUNISH THE MONSTER WHO DID THIS OR YOU WILL SEE THEM MURDER A HUMAN THE NEXT TIME!!

    God bless your beloved owner and may you rest in peace young Toby.
    Many of us hope and pray that your murderer will be found and pay dearly for your heinous death.

  4. Demand justice.It’s high time Australia changed the law and cared for animals’ rights. And stop ttorturing animals before being killed for peoples’ meals!

  5. Catch this sick depraved criminal and jail him! He was robbing someone, and committed a murder, anyone caught for such a violent act is sick and a very real danger to sane people trying to live productive lives. Get rid of scum! And check out everything about thus sick monster when you catch it. Probably other crimes he’s committed.

  6. dear god the poor poor dog, what a frightening way to die, i just hope the person who did this someday has the same ending, painful and long, low life scum.
