Target: William Shaw Jr., Clearfield County, Pennsylvania District Attorney
Goal: Seek the most severe penalty possible for couple who allegedly filmed the sexual abuse of a dog.
A married couple reportedly sexually abused a dog on camera. The video in question shows the woman, who was allegedly identified in the film by relatives, attempting to perform sexual acts with a dog.
The suspects are only facing misdemeanor and summary charges, which means they could get away with no serious punishment. The couple faces multiple counts of produce/present/direct of obscene performance, four counts of criminal attempted sexual intercourse with an animal, four counts of conspiracy to commit sexual intercourse with an animal, and four counts of cruelty to animals.
Many more animals would be at risk of becoming victims in these disturbing acts of abuse if they aren’t stopped. Both are scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing. Please add your signature to this petition to demand that they receive the harshest possible penalty and a lifetime ban from owning animals, if they are found guilty.
Dear Mr. Shaw,
A couple reportedly sexually abused a defenseless dog and filmed it. They only face misdemeanor and summary charges, which isn’t likely to prevent this from happening again.
It’s common for animal owners to sell this disgusting content over the internet, so there’s a good chance this couple was also making money off abusing this poor animal. This is an extremely disturbing case of animal abuse, and it’ll likely continue if appropriate action isn’t taken. We urge you to seek the harshest possible penalty, if this couple is found guilty.
[Your Name Here]
