Justice for Dog Nearly Poisoned With Pill-Laden Bait

German-Shepherd-by-VirtualWolf

Target: Tom Wolf, Governor of Pennsylvania

Goal: Increase punishments for animal cruelty in order to ensure that animal abusers such as one who left poisoned bait for a dog can no longer get off with a slap on the wrist.

A German Shepherd is lucky to be alive after someone attempted to poison it with hot dogs filled with pills. Owner Christina Marie Allen suspects that someone had been trying to hurt the animal for a while, as miscellaneous items such as toys, flashlights, and garbage would often turn up in the yard. Recently, she discovered that this person has escalated their reckless behavior when they threw hot dogs laced with blue pills over the fence. The lack of poisoned meat in neighboring yards further suggests that this was a deliberate, targeted attack against the Allen’s dog.

The Luzerne County Police and Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) are currently investigating this incident. According to authorities who have questioned the neighbors, there has not yet been a suspect identified. According to Todd Hevner, executive director of the county SPCA, it’s likely that the perpetrator of this crime will be handed down a misdemeanor punishment, likely a fine with a similar cost to a parking ticket. This is due to Pennsylvania’s lax animal protection laws.

Instances of the intentional placement of harmful items, such as drugs, screws, or razor blades, in an attempt to hurt dogs has become all too common. If the perpetrators of these crimes are not properly dealt with, more dogs will be put at risk. Sign the petition below to demand that laws are updated in order to ensure that people who commit gruesome crimes like these are punished appropriately.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Wolf,

A German Shepherd was nearly poisoned after an unknown suspect laid pill-laden hot dogs for it to find. Had the dog’s owner not found the bait first, the dog could have been seriously harmed or even killed. The owner suspects that the attack is targeted as she has been finding miscellaneous hazards in her yard for a few months. Furthermore, no neighboring dog owners reported finding any hazards.

This dog got lucky. An increasing number of dogs are dying from eating meat laced with screws, razor blades, or poison that is left out with the deliberate intention of harming animals. In order to stop this cruelty, punishments for these types of crimes must be increased. We, the undersigned, ask that you work to implement harsher animal protection laws in your state.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Why politicians are so against protecting our animals is beyond me. They all claim to believe in God but ignore the fact that there are several passages in the bible that refer to the kind treatment of animals. Start making animal abuse felonies with mandatory jail time and loss of gun rights and you might see these acts against our pets, wildlife, and farm animals go down. Stop protecting sociopaths

  3. Hunters in France will do that if a dog attempts to befriend the hunt dogs while they’re out hunting.

    I have a couple of friends who have found poison laden meat in their front gardens where their dogs hang out. Luckily neither dog was brought up on fresh meat so had no idea what it was and didn’t touch it.

    The police need to look at the neighboring homes that don’t own pets and go from there. I think they will find the culprit does not own a pet and is angry at the people, who do!

  6. TOM WOLF NEEDS TO GROW SOME BALLS AND MAKE THESE ACTS A FELONY SO THAT COWARDS LIKE THAT MONSTER GET PUT IN JAIL.

    Kill this animal murdering monster, If this lowlife monster is not put to death this psychopathic animal torturing monster will continue murdering other defenceless and innocent dogs, cats and whatever innocent animal this fuck will murder.
    The atrocities committed against innocent animals makes a person hate and detest his own species.
    An eye for an eye the saying goes. This psychopathic monster
    deserves to die a horrific agonising death. Which this psycho deserves.

  8. Linda Barnett says:

    This despicable crime must be fully investigated and the sick evil lowlife must be tracked down and severely dealt with. Somebody must know who is carrying out this cruelty to innocent dogs. Justice must be done to deal with this individual before another creature is harmed or murdered. We must protect our animals from the evil in this world. Anybody who takes it upon themselves to cause suffering, or sadly, death, to ANY creature must be dealt with MOST SEVERELY! There is no doubt that this psycho is a danger to society, both to our animals and possibly to mankind. ACTION is required NOW! Mr. Wolf, laws in Pennsylvania, and indeed the USA, must be updated if such criminal cruelty is to be prevented in the future. JUSTICE Mr. Wolf!
