Target: Rachel Romano, Prosecuting Attorney for Harrison County, West Virginia
Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the man who allegedly neglected and abandoned his dogs.
Three dogs were reportedly neglected and denied medical care. One dog was allegedly left to die after its owner was evicted from their home. Demand justice for these innocent dogs.
Harrison County officers first responded to Russell King’s property after they received a call about a dog running loose. What they found at the scene was shocking. Per police reports, a pit bull had a heavy chain tied around his neck and infection on his skin and eyes. All three dogs on the property were reportedly not vaccinated or wearing tags. Though this was resolved, authorities were called back to the property when King allegedly moved and left one dog behind to die.
King was arrested and charged with abandoning an animal to die, withholding medical treatment, and cruelly chaining an animal. Sign below and demand that King receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.
Dear Prosecuting Attorney Romano,
Three dogs were allegedly neglected on a Harrison County property. Russell King, the man residing on the property, reportedly denied the dogs medical care and abandoned a dog to die. We demand justice for these innocent dogs.
A concerned neighbor called Harrison County officers after they discovered an abandoned dog. The dog had reportedly been living on the empty property for two weeks after King was evicted. It’s unknown if the dog had access to food, water, or shelter. Per police reports, King had previously received multiple warnings regarding neglecting the needs of his dogs.
This horrific neglect cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.
