Over 15 Animals Allegedly Starved and Neglected Deserve Justice

Target: Neal Pinkston, District Attorney for Hamilton County, Tennessee

Goal: Demand that the couple who allegedly starved more than 15 animals, leading to the death of ten, receive the maximum penalty under law.

Over 15 animals were reportedly found starving and living in deplorable conditions. Per police, the home was covered in urine, feces, and trash. Demand justice for these innocent animals.

When officers entered Staci and Dustin Tallent’s residence, they reportedly found a pile of trash approximately three feet high. The couple’s children were allegedly locked in a room filled with trash and feces and officers found multiple animals in poor condition. Per police, eight turtles, four dogs, three cats, one rabbit, one python, and one lizard had no access to food or water. In addition, six birds, three dogs, and a rabbit were found dead inside of a freezer.

The children were taken into the custody of Child Protective Services and the surviving animals received veterinary care. The Tallents have been charged with 15 counts of animal cruelty each and aggravated child abuse. Sign below and demand that they receive the maximum penalty under law, if convicted.


Dear District Attorney Pinkston,

Ten animals allegedly starved to death and more were deprived of food in a shocking case of animal cruelty. The animals, along with three children, were reportedly forced to live in filth. We demand justice for these victims of abuse.

Police searched Staci and Dustin Tallent’s home and reportedly found multiple emaciated animals with no access to food and water. Ten more animals were reportedly found dead inside of a freezer, their bodies also dangerously emaciated. Per police reports, the children were locked in a room and surrounded by filth.

This abuse cannot be tolerated. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.
