Justice for 37 Dogs Allegedly Starved and Neglected

Target: Ed Corrigan, County Attorney for Flathead County, Montana

 Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the person who allegedly neglected 37 dogs, resulting in the death of one.

Over thirty dogs were reportedly neglected and starved in a Montana home. They reportedly suffered from malnutrition and dehydration among other health issues. Demand justice for these innocent dogs.

“They came in in very rough shape,” stated Flathead County Animal Shelter Director Cliff Bennet. Veterinarian reports showed that the dogs were emaciated, dehydrated, and their fur was matted to their skin. A couple of the dogs reportedly suffered from untreated broken legs and one had to be put down due to the extent of its injuries.

The dogs were removed from the home and are currently in the custody of the county animal shelter. Their owner is under investigation and has not yet been charged. Demand that authorities pursue animal cruelty charges and that the owner receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.

PETITION LETTER

Dear County Attorney Corrigan,

Thirty-seven dogs were removed from a home after they were discovered living in inhumane conditions, per the Flathead County Animal Shelter. The dogs reportedly suffered from various health issues including malnutrition and dehydration. Demand justice for these innocent dogs.

“They were emaciated, many were dehydrated and their fur was terribly matted because they were living in their own filth,” stated Bennet. He and his team at the Flathead County Animal Shelter rescued the dogs and will continue to care for them until the investigation is complete. Though the dogs are improving, Bennet reports that many of them are fearful of their new situation and don’t understand what is happening.

This horrific cruelty cannot go unpunished. We demand that you pursue animal cruelty charges and assign the maximum penalty by law to the person convicted of this crime.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Anyone causing this situation and ignoring it is either a heartless monster or mentally challenged. Either way must never be allowed to keep animals. There is no excuse, there are organisations which can help, obviously they were not informed. If found guilty, please throw the book at this person or people. They deserve it.

  2. What a evil person that did this.They need the same treatment .pos

    Rescuing gone sadly wrong, and turned into unsustainable hoarding, with no finances to continue to feed and care? The person/s is not of sound mind, perhaps.
    I will not judge as I don’t know the full ‘story’, but with unattended broken bones and even lack of water, begs too many questions.
    God bless all involved for assisting these poor animals, I do hope they can settle and become adoptable down the track.

  4. MIREN EN LA EXPRESIÓN CLARA DE ESTE PERRO LA CRUELDAD, LA DEPRESIÓN Y LA ANGUSTIA; MIREN POR FAVOR LA FEALDAD, LA BASURA Y LA DESESPERACIÓN QUE HACE EL SER HUMANO EN SERES QUE ERAN TAN INCREÍBLEMENTE BELLOS Y NATURALES. MIREN CÓMO LA VIDA DE MISERIA SE PUEDE OBSERVAR CLARAMENTE EN LA EXPRESIÓN DE UN ANIMAL. ES ESTO LO ÚNICO QUE EL SER HUMANO SABE HACER???? DESTRUIR, MALTRATAR Y CORROMPER????

    After this person goes to therapy in a state hospital for one year, they should pick up dog crap in public dog parks for 7 years….if this person doesn’t show enthusiasm picking up the dog crap then tase that person….until it gets picked up…LOL! Also put these people on the animal hoarder list so they can’t do it again ever in life…dog lives matter to me….cat lives , cow lives etc…

  6. “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 is one state that needs a lot of changes in their laws. I have seen this State allow rapist whom rape their own daughters walk free. I am sure the animal laws are no better. MONTANA show some honor. Enforce the criminals of your State.

  8. I haven’t researched the laws on Montana but I believe you are probably right Kimberly Beebe.

    Dear Mr. Ed Corrigan, County Attorney for Flathead County, Montana
    I live in Arizona and we have some of the best laws in the country, but any law is only as good as the Prosecutor and Judge. So I am urging you Mr. Corrigan to please prosecute the person or persons to the full extend that law will allow. And the judge can throw in some added comments regarding that people that mistreat or neglect an animal should never be allowed to own another for the rest of their life or lives. And if this is a mentally unbalanced person or was Financially unable to provide for the animals then you or the judge must address the fact that there was someone coming to the house to oversee either the health or well being of the people, them that person must be given a shout out that if they had alerted the authorities when first observed that maybe these innocent animals might not have suffered such abuse and cruelty.
    People that witness or believe that a situation of 37 animals can’t be properly cared for (and there are very few situations where they would be cared for properly) must start taking some Responsibility for the horrible condition that these poor voiceless little animals
    will eventually succumb too.
    We all must start doing everything in our power to see that these kind of cases never happen again.
    Thank you all.
