Dog Allegedly Starved to Death Deserves Justice

Target: Benjamin R. David, District Attorney for New Hanover County, North Carolina

Goal: Demand that the two people who allegedly starved a dog to death receive the maximum penalty under law.

A dog allegedly starved to death in a shocking case of animal cruelty. The dog reportedly suffered from numerous health conditions and lacked proper veterinary care. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

The New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services Unit reportedly found Rocky, a Yorkshire Terrier, dead on Elijah Hansley’s and Jasmine Goodman’s bedroom floor. Hansley and Goodman allegedly neglected to feed Rocky or provide him with necessary veterinary care. Necropsy results confirmed that Rocky starved to death. He was also found to be suffering from heartworm, which reportedly contributed to his death.

Hansley and Goodman were each arrested and charged with felony animal cruelty. They have both bonded out of jail. Sign below and demand that Hansley and Goodman receive the maximum penalty under law, if convicted.


Dear District Attorney David,

A dog suffered and died after he was allegedly starved and denied life-saving veterinary care. The dog also reportedly suffered from numerous other injuries and ailments due to his owner’s failure to get him the necessary vaccinations and medications. We demand justice for this poor dog.

Per necropsy results, Rocky was starved for an extended period. He also reportedly suffered from heartworm, which ultimately contributed to his death. Hansley and Goodwin allegedly allowed their poor dog to suffer and die when a few simple treatments could have saved his life.

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

    These losers are all over their Facebook page professing to be such wonderful Christians! Christians don’t starve and abuse animals. Unbelievable. I honestly can’t believe the hypocrisy of some people.

    When the law starts to harshly penalize these monsters, then maybe animal abuse will stop!,,,

    PLEASE READ: These 2 people killed TWO dogs..just type in their names and read the news articles. Antoinette Jasmine Goodman starved her dog (a terrier named Rocky) and the other guy Elijah Handles allowed his dog (a huskie mix) to die due to neglect also. BOTH are horrible but to clarify it seems Goodman starved her dog. Someone posted his Facebook account..I hope someone finds hers. I didn’t realize they both killed TWO animals..they deserve each jail. Sadly both are out on bail. I hope this petition is for both dogs.

    I’ve been trying to follow this case a
    On both individuals. Sadly there is not ONE update about either if them. I gave a bad feeling they are going to get away with this. Thanks SO much to the local police and courts for doing NOTHING.
