Target: Eric J. Smith, Prosecuting Attorney for Macomb County
Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the people who allegedly neglected their dog so severely that her paw fell off.
A dog was reportedly abused so severely that her untreated broken paw was attached only by hair mats. The suspects denied ownership of the dog. Demand justice for this innocent dog.
When Elvira arrived at Macomb County Animal Control, dirty hair mats covered her entire face. The seven-year-old Shih Tzu was blind in one eye and partially blind in the other. Matted hair caused her broken back legs to bend and her broken front paw was attached by mats alone. Elvira was allegedly kept in a basement and neglected while her family’s other dog was reportedly well taken care of.
Christopher Penn, 36, his wife, Sonja Sturdivant, 49, and her son, Demico Knight Jr., 21, each face one count of torturing an animal. Elvira is slowly recovering from her injuries. The other dog is still in the suspects’ custody. Sign below and demand the maximum penalty in this case.
Dear Prosecutor Smith,
A dog was reportedly tortured and neglected so severely that her broken paw fell off. Hair mats covered her face and pebbles were found in her stomach. We demand justice for this innocent dog.
A neighbor reportedly found Elvira cowering in the corner of Demico Knight Jr.’s basement. She was reportedly unable to walk and could barely move at all. A visit to Macomb County Animal Control revealed multiple broken bones and a broken paw attached only by hair mats.
This poor dog lived a life of pain and torture. The people responsible must be punished to the maximum degree.
