Justice For Deer Hit by Car and Set on Fire

Target: Theodore “Ted” Jackson, Sheriff, Fulton County Sheriff’s Department

Goal: Find and punish the person who ran over a deer and set it on fire while it was still alive.

A deer was hit by a car and then set on fire, according to authorities in Fulton County, Indiana. Conservation officers say that the animal had an accelerant poured over it while it was still alive, and was set ablaze by the person who struck it. The person then drove off, but not without leaving debris from their car — valuable clues which may lead to their apprehension. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is currently offering a reward of $5,000 to anyone who comes forward with information leading to the arrest of the person responsible, who was reportedly driving a blue or black GM vehicle.

According to PETA, a passerby noticed the suffering animal in a ditch on the interstate and alerted the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department. When officers arrived, the deer was still alive and smoldering. Obviously, due to the severe extent of the animal’s injuries, it had to be put down as soon as possible in order to stop its suffering. It is unknown how long the animal was left to endure this unimaginable pain.

This act of senseless torture shocked the community. In order to ensure that justice is served for this innocent animal, the person responsible must be found and harshly punished. Sign the petition below to demand that the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department allocate additional resources to the case in order to find and charge whoever is responsible for this barbaric act.


Dear Sheriff Jackson,

A deer was recently run over on the interstate. Instead of stopping to call animal welfare authorities to treat it, the driver of the car poured an accelerant over it and set it on fire while it was still alive. The deer was left to suffer unimaginable pain for an unknown period of time before another driver stopped to help it. When officers with the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department arrived, the deer was still alive and smoldering. It had to be euthanized due to the extreme trauma it endured.

This unspeakable act of cruelty shook surrounding communities. In order to ensure that this barbaric offender is taken off the streets, it is imperative that they are found and charged immediately. We, the undersigned, ask you to allocate extra resources to this case in order to apprehend the person responsible.

    What kind of psycho would do that to a helpless and innocent animal!! Who raised this/these sadistic sociopath(s)??? Their parents should be so proud 🙁 Sadistic sociopaths many times go on to hurt humans after they tire of innocent animals just like serial killers Jeffrey Dahmer and Ted Bundy!! Wouldn’t want to be the parents of the perpetrator(s) of this sick crime!!!

    Find and prosecute to the full extent of the Law!
    “Ye must not only have kind and merciful feelings for mankind, but ye should also exercise the utmost kindness towards every living creature.
    The physical sensibilities and instincts are common to animal and man.
    Man is, however, negligent of this reality and imagines that sensibility is peculiar to mankind, therefore he practices cruelty to the animal…..
    In reality what difference is there in physical sensations! Sensibility is the same whether you harm man or animal: there is no difference. Nay, rather, cruelty to the animal is more painful because man has a tongue and he sighs, complains and groans when he receives an injury and complains to the government and the government protects him from cruelty; but the poor animal cannot speak, it can neither show its suffering nor is it able to appeal to the government.
    If it is harmed a thousand times by man it is not able to defend itself in words nor can it seek justice or retaliate…..
    Therefore one must be very considerate towards animals and show greater kindness to them than to man…. Man is generally sinful and the animal is innocent; unquestionably one must be more kind and merciful to the innocent”. Baha’i Faith Writings

    Make this piece of sh!t roadkill himself❗?
    Signed & shared ?

  5. The community should really be concerned about the person or persons that did this!! Monsters are real, that is for sure! To see what happens every day on this earth to Gods creatures is heart breaking, and beyond any kind of understanding. I hope that all the monsters that bring such suffering, get EVERYTHING that they deserve and MORE!!

    I can’t believe what I am reading, I’m sick of hearing that two wrongs don’t make a right, catch them douse them in petrol, set them alight and walk away – job done.

    • Louise, I couldn’t agree more….an eye for an eye. We can’t always wait for the justice system to do what it’s supposed to. There are just too many crazies walking around and not enough law enforcement.

    Unable to understand what mentality does this. Indiana is becoming the low rent district of the U.S. Are these people all morons? Inbred? Sad to say wish nothing but evil on the perp and hope his mini appendage shrivels up even more.

    I want to curb stomp this cunt…over & over again.

  9. Tyra Tabor says:

    Wholeheartedly agree to finding this excretent with feet, pouring kerosene all over them and turning them into a torch. And when they are a smouldering heap on the ground I want to ask them how does it feel? Does it hurt a little? Then kick them in their skull and walk away merrily laughing. Sounds monsterous but I would sleep well knowing this abomination would never hurt any beautiful innocent creature again. This is what is needed to take out the truly evil.
