Target: Charles Simono, Distict Attorney for Forest County, Wisconsin
Goal: Punish woman accused of the neglect of over 30 dogs and 14 horses.
A breeder of wolf-dog hybrids is facing animal cruelty charges after several allegedly neglected animals and some dead ones were found on her property. Animal control officers, who were responding to complaints that the animals kept escaping her property, found several neglected hybrid dogs as well as horses that suffered the same alleged neglect. Officials say that most, if not all of the horses, suffered from malnutrition.
The dogs were in no better condition. Many of them were found chained to trees, while others were found roaming the property with no enclosure at all. The property was also littered with the corpses of dead hybrids. Some of those left alive reportedly had no access to food or water and suffered medical issues including untreated cuts and abrasions.
Wolf-dog hybrids are the result of breeding wolves with large dogs such as huskies. According to experts, these animals can be timid and unpredictable, making them poor choices of pets for most owners. While the state of Wisconsin requires all wolf-dog hybrid owners to obtain a license, reports say that the animals on this property were largely unlicensed.
This alleged cruelty must not go unpunished. In order to save more animals from the same treatment at the hands of this cruel breeder, it’s important that she is punished harshly. Sign the petition below to demand that if she is found guilty, the person responsible is punished to the fullest extent of the law and banned from animal ownership.
Dear Mr. Simono,
A resident of Crandon, Wisconsin has been accused of animal cruelty after several neglected animals were reportedly found on her property. The animals included over 30 wolf-dog hybrids, many of which were chained to trees without access to food or water. Fourteen horses were also found on the property, many of them suffering similar neglect. The corpses of dead hybrid dogs also littered the property.
While the state of Wisconsin requires wolf-dog hybrids to be registered and kept with a certain standard of care and roaming space, the breeder in this case reportedly did not comply. In order to save other animals from this alleged neglect, it’s important to ensure that she isn’t allowed to breed or keep animals ever again. We, the undersigned, ask that you seek to punish her harshly, if she is found guilty.
[Your Name Here]
