Opossum Allegedly Trapped and Drowned Deserves Justice

Target: Donald W. Kleine, County Attorney for Douglas County, Nebraska

Goal: Demand that the man who allegedly trapped an opossum in a cage and drowned it in a trashcan receive the maximum penalty under law.

An opossum was reportedly trapped in a cage and drowned in a flooded trashcan. An employee at the ServiceMaster cleaning company is allegedly behind the shocking case of cruelty. Alison Bishop, the Manager for Corporate Communications for ServiceMaster, stated, “We take this matter seriously and are investigating it thoroughly. We do not condone any mistreatment of animals.” Demand justice for this innocent animal.

“I had tears running down my face as I was recording that. It was horrible and I’ll never get that out of mind,” said Sheryl Spain of Community Cats of Omaha. Spain recorded herself removing the cage from the flooded trashcan. The opossum was still inside and appeared dead. The gruesome video was viewed over 66,000 times on Facebook.

Jorge Artolasoliz was charged with one count of animal cruelty and has reportedly been fired from ServiceMaster. Sign below and demand that Artolasoliz receive the maximum penalty under law, if convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear County Attorney Kleine,

An opossum suffered an agonizing death when a cleaning service employee allegedly drowned it in a trashcan. Shocking video footage showed the opossum dead in the cage, still submerged underwater. We demand justice for this poor animal.

“The reality is that drowning wild animals is a torturous death. It was a horrible death for the animal in this case and it was completely unnecessary,” stated Laura Stastny, a representative of Nebraska Wildlife Rehab, Inc. This isn’t the first animal cruelty accusation against ServiceMaster. Multiple cats have reportedly been trapped on the property, but it is unclear if they were injured.

This horrific cruelty cannot go unpunished. We demand that Artolasoliz receive the maximum penalty under law, if convicted.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
