Justice for Dog with Large Tumor Allegedly Starved and Neglected

Target: Shannon L. Taylor, Commonwealth’s Attorney for Henrico County, Virginia

Goal: Demand that the woman who allegedly starved her dog and neglected to provide her with medical care receive the maximum penalty under law.

A dog had to be euthanized after she was allegedly starved and denied medical care. The dog’s owner, Orquidea Tyndall stated, “I’m being accused of animal cruelty and all this craziness when in all my life I’ve never even had a charge. I loved my dog.” Demand justice for this innocent dog.

“Her eyes were very mucous-like and you could tell the dog was very distressed and sick,” stated a concerned neighbor. Police responded to the neighbors call and found the dog, Diamond, in poor condition. Diamond was reportedly emaciated and had a large tumor hanging from her chest. Tyndall denied neglecting Diamond and claimed that she did not have the money to bring her to the vet.

Diamond had to be euthanized due to the seriousness of her illness. Tyndall was charged with felony animal cruelty. Sign below and demand that Tyndall receive the maximum penalty under law, if convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Commonwealth’s Attorney Taylor,

A dog suffered tremendously and had to be euthanized after she was allegedly starved and neglected. The dog reportedly had a massive tumor hanging from her chest and her ribs showed through her skin. We demand justice for this poor dog.

Photos taken by a concerned neighbor tell a heartbreaking story. In the images, 14-year-old Diamond’s ribs showed through her skin and the only weight on her fragile body was the giant tumor hanging from her chest. She was reportedly left alone in her front yard with no food or water and appeared distressed.

This horrific cruelty must be punished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. As a person who has had a dog who developed a large tumor on it’s face, I can say with confidence that sometimes they just get skinny. You can get them dog food with all the required supplements and minerals that a dog would need, but sometimes they just wont eat. You have to hope ad pray that they get better and they bounce back, and that if they do you can help them by getting them food that they’ll finally eat and trying to make them comfortable, but sometimes it takes a long time, and you have to watch them get worse and worse and worse until the dog you’ve had for years looks like it might just drop. You don’t though, because you love it and you don’t want to let it go, so you hold on and hope and pray that it gets better. Because it might, and that’s what your clinging to. Sometimes vets don’t do anything useful, except give you a estimate of how long your dog has got left they they outlive by years(which just gives you more hope), and sometimes you can’t afford to take your family -because that’s what they’ve become- to the vert because you can’t hardly afford to feed yourself. I know what it’s like to live with a dog that suffers from a large tumor, and I know how it feels to see that dog get so bad that it can’t move without pain, but you still love them and you don’t want to let them go, but you have to, because at that point you know. There’s no more hope.

    I’m sorry, at some point this became more about my personal experiences then about what it was supposed to be about, but the point is: I don’t blame her. Sometimes your already sick dog wont eat and it’ll get skinny. Sometimes taking your dog to the vet wont do anything for it other then give it an expiration date that it might live past. Sometimes it’ll seem like holding out for the dog might.

    • I’m sorry if some of my comment doesn’t make sense, i wasn’t exactly focused on my grammar.
      ‘…get worse and worse and worse until the dog you’ve had for years looks like it might just drop. You don’t though, because you love it and you don’t want to let it go, so you hold on and hope and pray that it gets better.’
      This part originally said ‘get worse and worse and worse until the dog you’ve had for years looks like it might be better to put it to sleep. You don’t though, because you love it and you don’t want to let it go, so you hold on and hope and pray that it gets better.’
