Man Accused of Cutting Puppies’ Throats for Revenge Against Wife Must be Punished

Target: Gary Bishop, Prosecuting Attorney for Richland County, Ohio

Goal: Harshly punish man who allegedly cut puppies’ throats as a way to cause emotional distress to their owner.

Five puppies were recently found severely injured and left to die. Four of them had their throats cut and another suffered a leg injury. The dog’s owner discovered the gruesome scene and called police and humane investigators, who have already arrested someone in connection with the crime. According to Missy Houghton, Executive Director of the Humane Society of Richland County, the dogs’ owner’s husband is suspected of committing this heartless act as a way of getting back at his wife.

The dogs are now in the custody of the Humane Society of Richland County. They required staples for their wounds and will require more monitoring, but they are expected to recover. Houghton says that the puppies are “healthy, happy and bouncy” and the plan is to nurse them back to health and adopt them into stable homes.

Using animals as collateral damage in domestic disputes is absolutely unacceptable and not only results in injury and death to pets, but can cause extreme emotional trauma to humans. The person responsible for this horrific crime must be punished to the fullest extent of the law. Please ask that the prosecuting attorney seek the maximum possible penalty for the accused husband, if he is found guilty.


Dear Mr. Bishop,

A man has been arrested after five puppies were found with severe injuries. Four of the puppies had their throats cut, while another had an injured leg. The man reportedly admitted to investigators that he harmed the dogs in an attempt to “get back at” his wife after an argument.

The animals were taken in by the Richland County Humane Society and required staples for their severe wounds. They are expected to recover with more monitoring, and will eventually be adopted out.

This shocking act of cruelty suggests a capability for extreme violence. In order to protect both animals and humans, it’s important that the suspect is punished. We, the undersigned, ask you to seek the maximum possible penalty for this man, if he is found guilty.

    We don’t need people like this in our society.

  2. This man is obviously unstable, cruel and sociopathic. He is a danger to society as a whole and needs to be killed.

    Nature treats back now ? Monster
    Take responsibility for your cruelty
    Take responsibility for your Being on Earth

  4. Simon Rimmer says:

    Animal cruelty must become a death penalty crime

  5. Very upsetting case of abuse. If they had children, would he have done the same to them. Animal abusers need to be charged with a felony and serve mandatory jail time. These things keep happening. It has to stop.

  6. This guy obviously has mental health issues to do something like this. What will he do next time something happens he does not agree with.
