Euthanized Dog Reportedly Living in Feces With Open Wounds Deserves Justice

Target: R. Michael Tantillo, District Attorney for Ontario County, New York

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the man who allegedly abused his dog and allowed him to live in filthy conditions with an untreated head wound.

A dog was reportedly abused and left to suffer with an untreated head wound. The dog’s eye protruded from its socket and he had to be euthanized to ease his pain. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

New York State police first met Zeus when they executed an unrelated search warrant in Christopher Duval’s home. Per reports, the emaciated pit bull was found lying in a small space on a feces-covered floor. Zeus suffered from an untreated head wound that caused his eye to protrude from its socket.

The Humane Society rescued Zeus, but had to euthanize him due to the extent of his injuries. Duval was charged with aggravated cruelty to an animal. He remains in jail without bail. Sign below and demand that Duval receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Tantillo,

A dog was allegedly starved, kept in his own filth, and suffered an untreated head wound. The dog had to be euthanized due to the extent of his injuries. We demand justice for this innocent dog.

Christopher Duval, Zeus’ alleged owner, was arrested after the unfortunate pit bull had to be euthanized. Zeus suffered a head wound so serious that it caused his eye to protrude from its socket. He was dangerously emaciated and suffered tremendously prior to being put down.

This horrific abuse cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    I Attempted to find a way to EMAIL as I Always do, because just signing a Petition is NOT Enough. If you can, ALWAYS try to EMAIL or Contact the Attorney/Prosecuter or someone with the COUNTY or CITY in the State in which these CRIMES occur, to LET these people who CAN DO Something about the PERPETRATOR, CRIMINAL, because in SOME places it IS A CRIME to DO these CRIMES of Animal Abuse, NEGLECT & CRUELTY. What Most do NOT understand is this, ONCE A so-called HUMAN is found FINALLY to be GUILTY of a crime like this ONE< you can BET it's NOT the ONLY ONE & if NOT stopped will NOT BE THE LAST! NOR Will they STOP with being CRUEL TO AN ANIMAL, it IS ANY "BEING" Human or Animal that CANNOT..DEFEND, PROTECT, OR "TELL, SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES" Or YELL OUT FOR HELP, that these POS Will PREY ON Over & OVER AGAIN. Next ONE BEING< could be YOUR OWN..These are NOT the "NORMAL" Human Beings people too often Mistaken them for, they ARE AN ABNORMAL SUB SPECIES who WILL CONTINUE TO "PREY" ON those of ANY SPECIES Who CANNOT DEFEND, PROTECT OR FIGHT BACK, OR "TALK" OR SCREAM OR YELL For HELP..They are EVERY SINGLE ONE A PURE COWARD!! They ONLY "PREY, NEGLECT, ABUSE, & TORTURE Those who CANNOT FIGHT BACK OR "TELL"..HENCE< COWARDS Who WILL NEVER STOP until & UNLESS "THEY ARE STOPPED" & permanently..removed from Society, & Definitely from EVER being ALLOWED TO OWN AN ANIMAL OR BE AROUND A CHILD, or a Handicapped PERSON, WITHOUT IN CONSTANT Supervision..PERIOD..THESE "THINGS" Will NEVER STOP..they GET AWAY with these CRIMES OF CRUELTY, TORTURE, ABUSE & NEGLECT Every single day & night..REMOVE THEM or NOTHING WILL EVER CHANGE..hasn't EVER..& NEVER WILL Until SOMETHING & MANY "MAKE" the CHANGE TO REMOVE THEM & MAKE THEM PAY & ENFORCE THE LAWS, IF LAWS ARE NOT..STRONG ENOUGH, MAKE SURE SOMEONE MAKES THEM..STRONGER, & THEN, ENFORCES THEM. These CRIMES ALWAYS LEAD TO MORE & The NEXT.

  2. What the hell is the matter with some humans today??WHY ARE THEY SO CRUEL,VILE,EVIL AND SADISTIC??

    THIS MONSTER NEEDS TO BE SEVERELY PUNISHED ….JAIL HIM FOR 2-3 YEARS, BAN HIM FROM EVER HAVING ANIMALS OR BEING AROUND THEM, FINE HIM A HUGE AMOUNT AND MAKE HIM PAY ZEUS’S VET BILLS, DEMAND THIS MONSTER GETS PSYCHIATRIC HELP AS HE IS A SICKO.

    RIP POOR BABY ZEUS AND MAY YOU GET JUSTICE FOR YOUR PAINFUL AND HORRIFIC TREATMENT AND DEATH.

    • I agree with you. No more animals / pets for this monster.

      Psychiatric help – definitely. Must be something wrong with this man to be able to leave poor Zeus in sech a bad way that the poor dog had to be euthanised.
      Disgusting.

  3. I hope and pray that he receives the same treatment. Sicko.

  4. Carolyn Taylor says:

    I demand justice for poor Zeus! Punish this putrid man to the fullest extent of our sadly inadequate abuse laws! No living being should ever be treated in such a cruel and pitiful manner!

  5. Christopher Duval should spend everyday of his pathetic life in a cell covered in filth like he let Zeus live in.Let’s hope a fellow inmate gives him a head wound to match the one Zeus had and if we are lucky he might die from his wounds and do the world a favour.Zeus deserved to be loved and cared for not treated like crap and abused by this piece of shit,parasite lowlife..also don’t feed the shitbag so he can also become emaciated and know how starving also feels..

  6. This monster is a THREAT, MENACE AND DANGER TO SOCIETY. Prosecute to FULL extent law provides. If he does not receive FULL and SWIFT prosecution then consider the system a failure as has been the case in the past. When are the courts going to start prosecuting animal abuse – a mere fine, warnings, community service is inept and will NOT be accepted. We The People DEMAND FULL PROSECUTION TO THE EXTENT LAW PROVIDES.

  7. Linda Barnett says:

    Jail would be too good for the likes of this despicable excuse for a human being. Either lock him up and throw away the key or put him out of his misery. There is no excuse whatsoever for the cruelty and mistreatment inflicted on this poor innocent dog. If this perpetrator must remain “alive”; he must never ever be allowed to either own or go near ANY animal in his life time. There has to be justice for this helpless creature. Creatures do not have a voice BUT WE DO and as I have voiced before, time and time again, WE WILL BE HEARD.

  8. Kathy Khoshfahm says:

    Mike – For those of us who tirelessly sign these Petitions on a daily basis, please prosecute this POS and get him off the street. The Animal Kingdom are citizens of this Earth, too, and they deserve our respect and protection.
