Justice for Injured Opossum Allegedly Tortured

Target: Clinton R. Boddicker, County Attorney for Lee County, Iowa

Goal: Demand that the men who allegedly tortured an opossum after it was hit by a car receive the maximum penalty under law.

An opossum was reportedly swung around by its tail and tortured after it was hit by a car. The alleged cruelty was caught on video and went viral. Demand justice for this innocent opossum.

“[The video] starts off as one of the individuals holds the opossum by its tail and swings it back and forth several times before appearing to throw the opossum,” stated DNR conservation officer Ben Schlader. The three men in the video then reportedly began hitting the opossum with objects.

The opossum died from its injuries. Jerry McGee, Austin Salyers and Casey Taylor were all charged with animal torture, an aggravated misdemeanor. Sign below and demand that McGee, Salyers, and Taylor receive the maximum penalty under law, if convicted.


Dear County Attorney Boddicker,

An opossum suffered tremendously when it was allegedly tortured by three men in Lee county. Video footage reportedly showed the men throwing the already injured opossum and hitting it with objects. We demand justice for this poor opossum.

McGee, Salyers, and Taylor reportedly found the opossum after it had been hit by a car. They then allegedly began recording themselves torturing the poor animal. The gruesome video was posted on Facebook and then went viral. It generated multiple complaints from concerned citizens.

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