Starving Puppy Abandoned in Box Along Road Deserves Justice

Target: Allan H. Kittleman, State’s Attorney for Howard County, Maryland

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the person who starved a puppy and abandoned him in a plastic storage container.

A puppy was abandoned in a plastic storage container by the side of the road. He was malnourished and had no access to food or water. Demand justice for this innocent puppy.

“What’s it take to give an animal some water? We don’t live in a war zone here,” stated Jill Eberhart, a Columbia resident. She called 911 after finding the brindle pit bull puppy by the side of the road. The container was covered in holes, to help the puppy breathe, but it was filled with the puppy’s feces and urine. Veterinarians reported that the poor animal was extremely malnourished and had open wounds and missing fur.

The puppy was taken to an emergency clinic and is expected to make a full recovery. The person responsible is still at large. Sign below and demand that this person receive the maximum penalty by law, if found and convicted.


Dear State’s Attorney Kittleman,

A 10-week-old puppy was left in a plastic storage container by the side of the road. The puppy was dangerously malnourished and near death. We demand justice for this innocent puppy.

Shocking photos showed the puppy lying inside of the storage container, surrounded by his own feces and urine. Too weak to even stand up, the puppy was in desperate need of water and food. If not for the help of Eberhart, it is likely that the puppy would not have survived.

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

      I struggle feeling the same way you do. I will never stop caring though and will do whatever in my power to help and to make whatever small impact I can.

    • I feel exactly as you do, Debra, but I want them to hurt so badly by the torture I would absolutely love to inflict on their worthless, hideous hides, before tossing their carcasses to the curb.

    • I feel that way too. These animal abusers are a blight on humanity. Our laws aren’t severe enough to punish them properly or deture others from abusing animals. I think we need to setup a fund to hire vigilantes to inhumanly handle these scumbag animal abusers.

  3. do the same to this person – completely and utterly inexcusable – zero tolerance.

  4. this poor little baby animals love humans and don’t understand when someone mistreats them the ones that hurt animals should be put away ship them all to some deserted island and let them try to survive make sure they have no food

  5. We should starve this guy, then feed him by parenteral (IV) and then starve him again and repeat.

  6. Listen…even “this” one saved is just that Debra, SAVED! Better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.
    I am at the end of my “rope” too you know, with all of these worthlessly cruel so called “human beings” who take it upon themselves to single handedly torture some poor, defenseless little (or big) animal and then think they’ll be portrayed as some kind of a brave fellow or something. When in reality they are just worthless, lowlife cowards. But after years of being what some smart ass calls “self righteous armchair warrior” I know fighting the good fight will forever be an uphill battle and us armchair warriors will never win the war against cowards who are running loose pretending to be humans when they are really just monsters too, who hurt, torture and murder the innocent for thrills. Like the sign says – defending animals right to live without fear of man, you will lose your mind, but you will find your soul.

  7. I hope the person who did this gets shoved into a plastic bin with tiny air holes and then the ‘Bin O’ Scumbag’ gets dumped in to a cesspool, preferably on a very hot day.

    There is no punishment severe enough for scum who hurt animals If they are caugbt they should be severely physically and mentally punished and never again be allowed to own animal. The half hearted punishments that are going around are no good . You have to deal with these filthy scum in a extremely vio!ent way.Jtll severe enough for me!

  9. The only fair punishment for animal abusers is doing the same but… at the end they would be tortured even more and killed in excruciating pain. That’s the way to go. Also th psychos, pedophiles and rapists can have the same.

  10. Ross Wentworth says:

    Making holes in the box was mighty kind of the person, but on the other hand, for Pete’s sake, the person should have made the effort to pass the poor baby on to SPCA, someone else, or a vet clinic. Why do humans think that animals are expendable?
