Punish Man Who Allegedly Kept Pets in Freezer

Target: Ellen Mitchell, District Attorney for Saline County, Missouri

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for man who allegedly neglected animals so severely that many of them died, and then kept their remains in a freezer.

In a horrific scene in Missouri, several pets were discovered living in deplorable conditions, with the bodies of still more found stuffed inside a freezer. “I don’t believe that freezer was plugged in so you could imagine the odor that came off of that, and there’s simply no excuse for disposing of animals in that way,” stated Saline County Sheriff Cindi Mullins. Her deputies responded to a 911 call and discovered the devastating scene. A dozen dogs, a scorpion, a gecko, and three tarantulas were found living in their own waste. They appeared malnourished and in poor condition.

Steven Howell, the owner of the property, has been charged with animal abuse. The Humane Society took custody of the dogs — sadly, three had to be euthanized due to the extent of their injuries. The gecko and the tarantula have been adopted, and the St. Louis Zoo took custody of the other animals. Sign below and demand that Howell, if convicted, receive the maximum penalty possible by law.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Mitchell,

A dozen dogs and other pets were found living in their own filth, in the home of Steven Howell. Several other animals were found dead in a freezer. We demand justice for these innocent animals.

“There was an overwhelming odor of ammonium and there was a lot of animal waste,” stated Sheriff Mullins. Her deputies arrived at the dilapidated house to find the animals malnourished and in pitiable condition. Three dogs had to be euthanized due to the extent of their injuries.

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

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This is one very sick or mentally depraved person. Why did it take someone so long to seek help for these animals?
    This perpetrator needs assessment and counselling along with a heavy fine to cover the cost of all medical care for these poor animals.
    Please make sure that this person is never allowed to own or associate with animals again. Thank you

  2. Remove that piece of shit from earth

  4. “The only difference between a dog, cat, horse and dolphin and a cow, chicken, pig and turkey is perception. One is no more valuable than another. And yet in this culture, we hold the former animals in high esteem and the latter we brutalize for food. All animals are deserving of respect and freedom from violence. The way to respect others is veganism.”

    This shocking cruelty was carried out by an extremely sick and evil individual. Severe punishment is called for and this despicable person must never be allowed to own any animal. He or she must never be allowed to have anything to do with ANY creature ever.

  6. FOR ALL OF THESE GREED AND INHUMANE BREED SOMEONE FORGOT MAIN THINGS IN HUMANES EDUCATION.
    WHO IS IT?

    ALL OF THAT  INHUMANE  MUD AND RESPONSIBLE  NONPERSONS  ARE ONLY SENSELESS FOR ALL OTHER TERRESTRIALS – RECYCLE THEM  TO ALLIGATORS – THE SINGLE MEANING OF THESE SCUM!

    This is beyond sick, serious, and disturbing behavior. If you can’t charge this unstable person with their CRIMES, then make damn sure they go into a mental health facility permanently.
