Justice for Dog Reportedly Strangled and Beaten with a Shovel


Target: Madeline Singas, District Attorney for Nassau County, New York

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the man who allegedly strangled his dog and beat it with a shovel, leading to the dog’s death.

A man reportedly strangled his dog and then beat it with a shovel. He claimed that he was putting the dog out of its misery. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

“All of sudden, he comes out with this long zip tie,” a witness stated. “And he’s putting it around the dog’s neck.” Witnesses then reported that the man placed a bag over the dog’s head and beat it with a shovel. He reportedly claimed that he was putting the dog out of its misery. Neighbors intervened, opening the bag and cutting the zip tie, but the dog’s injuries proved fatal.

Michael Gallagher, the dog’s owner, has been charged with aggravated cruelty to animals and torturing or injuring animals. He is being held on bond. Sign below and demand the maximum penalty in this case.


Dear District Attorney Singas,

A man reportedly tried to kill his dog, allegedly beating it with a shovel and putting a bag over its head. The dog had to be euthanized due to the severity of its injuries. We demand justice for this innocent dog.

“My neighbor across the street called me, screaming that she heard the dog being killed,” stated a witness. She and other neighbors intervened when they reportedly saw Gallagher beating and strangling the 11-year-old border collie mix. By the time they arrived, the dog reportedly had a zip tie embedded into its neck.

This horrific abuse cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.
