Target: Eric Weasley
Goal: Denounce man for beating a helpless dog to death with a television remote
In New Jersey, a man beat his sister’s dog with a television remote, and even though the dog was eventually taken to a veterinary hospital, the doctors could not save the animal. The abuser, Eric Weasley, had no right to beat this helpless creature to death and should be scorned for this abuse.
Forty-year-old Weasley has been charged with animal cruelty for beating his sister’s Yorkshire Terrier, Bella, over the head multiple times. The five-pound dog suffered severe skull fractures, which ultimately led to her untimely death. The incident happened in August 2014, and the man has recently been read his charges. Bella’s owner reported Weasley for his actions, and the man turned himself in two days later. It is not clear whether the man has hired a lawyer or if he has plead guilty to these charges.
This man clearly has a volatile temper, and deserves to be chastised for beating an innocent animal to death. Dogs are man’s best friend and Bella is no exception to this rule. Unfortunately, there are many cases where owners, or relatives of the owner, will take out their frustrations on a defenseless animal. Pets are not stress balls, they are living creatures who can feel pain and have emotions. They are not meant to be kicked, abused, or murdered. Scorn this man for hurting a canine member of his family.
Dear Eric Weasley,
You are charged with animal cruelty for killing your sister’s dog with a television remote. This dog, Bella, was killed by your hands in what seemed to be a fit of rage. There is no excuse for inflicting pain upon helpless creatures, and I find it gruesome that you took your anger out upon this dog. This murder is no doubt traumatic for the owner, who now has to deal with the legal proceedings of this case as well as the loss of a beloved pet.
I ask that you reflect upon your actions and ensure that it never happens again. The act of killing your sister’s dog illuminates your lack of compassion and empathy toward living creatures. Bella was a canine member of your family, and yet you used her as a stress ball. You had no right to take this dog’s life and I hope you will never be allowed to own an animal again. I also urge you to apologize to your sister for causing her so much grief.
[Your Name Here]
