Justice for Dog Allegedly Run Over, Skinned, and Decapitated  

Target: Greg Newman, District Attorney for Columbus, North Carolina

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the EMS worker who allegedly skinned and decapitated a dead dog.

A dog was reportedly run over by an EMS worker, who then allegedly skinned and decapitated the dog’s dead body. Photos of the mutilated dog were allegedly sent to his family shortly after they reported him missing. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

After Goliath went missing, his family immediately turned to social media for help. Instead, they reportedly received a photo of the Shiloh Shepherd dead and mutilated on the back of a truck. Michael Purdy, an EMS worker, reportedly sent the photo after he skinned and decapitated the dog’s already dead body. The dog reportedly died shortly after Purdy ran him over with an ambulance.

Purdy has been charged with two counts of resist, obstruct and delay. He was not charged with the alleged mutilation because there are currently no laws in North Carolina relating to the treatment of a dead animal. Purdy also lost his job after he allegedly lied to officials about the incident. Sign below to demand the maximum penalty in this case.


Dear District Attorney Newman,

A dog was reportedly run over, skinned, and decapitated. A photo of the mutilated dog was sent to his distraught family. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

Per law enforcement, Purdy picked up Goliath after he ran him over with the ambulance. He then reportedly brought Goliath to St. Lukes Hospital, where he showed him off and claimed that he was a wolf. Later, he reportedly skinned and decapitated Goliath.

Though there is no official charge in North Carolina for the mutilation of a dead animal, justice must be served. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

    What the hell is wrong with these people! Find the bastard who killed this beautiful dog and place his ass in jail, forever!!

    • it’s North Carolina – that should explain it all

      • Please don’t throw all NC residents under the bus for the ignorance of this a**hole.
        I have been privileged to be a part of animal rescue groups and spay/neuter (volunteer) operations for many years. We try to educate people by empowering them to do the right thing. It’s a full time job. It does make a difference.

    F***ing POS. I hope and pray his family dies violently. Assholes.

  3. Eugene W Sengstake Jr says:

    Every day we hear of cases similar to this – and nothing ever meaningful in the way of “deserved punishment” ever happens. They essentially get away with whatever despicable deed they have committed. Justice??? Who’s kidding who???

  4. I’m more concerned with whether hitting the dog was an accident (doesn’t sound like it) and the fact that he used the remains to horrify the dogs family, those are the things I’m most interested in him being punished for. Although the rest is still creepy.

  5. Jaime Perez says:

    This stinking pos deserves the same treatment. At least he did get fired! People like him need to be wiped off the face of the earth. It’s a farce, the laws we have concerning animal cruelty.

  6. Melinda Funk says:

    This sick freak needs some serious jail time not just a slap on the wrist, personally I would say he deserves the same thing done back to him. There needs to be justice for the voiceless!

    the scum bag needs to be arrested and then thrown into solitary confinement. This abuse is not to be tolerated. You need to treat them like
    the criminal they are. Take this abuse serious. This insane person needs to
    be found immediately. Don’t just slap them on the wrist and then let them
    go. After they are locked up don’t let them have any outdoor time,exercise,
    or t.v.,radio,phone,books,papers,magazines,or visitors. Just keep them in
    their cell 24/7. Give them a bucket for a toilet,a hosing off once a week,
    one pr. of clothes per week. Just enough food and water to be kept alive.

  8. Bev Woodburn says:

    Please someone kill this animal torturing monster. Eradicate this subhuman filth from this Planet.
    This is pure evilness and sadism at its worst.
