Man Accused of Cutting Tail off Neighbor’s Dog Must be Jailed

Target: Lindsey Byrd, Deputy Prosecutor, Charleston, South Carolina

Goal: Punish man accused of cutting dog’s tail off with tree shears over dispute with neighbor to the fullest extent of the law.

A man is out on bail while facing animal cruelty charges after allegedly cutting part of a dog’s tail off during a dispute with his neighbor. Jeffrey D. French, 58, has been accused of using tree shears to cut off the dog’s tail because he thought it barked too much. French has been arrested on charges of aggravated cruelty to animals but has been released on bail.

Cutting off an animal’s tail no doubt causes imaginable pain, but could also result in severe complications such as blood loss, infection, and even death. Long-term complications include chronic pain and the hampering of an animal’s social skills. Without a tail, a dog loses one of its major methods of communication.

Aggravated cruelty to animals is a felony charge that alleges causing serious injury to a companion animal. If he is found guilty, French could face a prison sentence of one to three years or up to two and a half years of probation.

When law enforcement starts to take animal cruelty more seriously, horrific incidents reportedly like these will become less common. Sign the petition below to ask the prosecutor to seek the maximum possible penalty for French, if he is found guilty.


Dear Deputy Prosecutor Byrd,

A man was recently arrested for allegedly cutting off part of a neighbor’s dog’s tail because the dog barked too much. Jeffrey D. French is accused of using tree shears to cut off part of the animal’s tail. He has been charged with aggravated animal cruelty, a felony charge which could result in one to three years or up to two and a half years of probation. He has been released on bail and is currently awaiting trial.

The only way to stop animal cruelty is for authorities to begin taking a tougher stance against animal abuse. We, the undersigned, ask that you seek the harshest possible punishment for French, if he is found guilty of this horrific crime.

  2. If you don’t like the barking …. poke out your eardrums FOOL!! Kill the bastard!!!! No justice for assholes!!!

  3. This POS needs what’s dangling between his legs cut off with dull rusty shears.

  4. Jennifer strausser says:

    Please enact the maximum penalty for this obvious pyschopath. He has no apparent conscience, no empathy, and no control over what he will do when angry. The man is a nuisance to society, he is a clear example of “future problems” this is the same kind of man that will beat and kill his girlfriend, wife, family member, neighbor… and the same type of man that will take his anger out on an animal in order to “get even” with whatever person bugs him… he definitely has the makings of a pyschopath! Prosecute this man, get him off the streets!!

  5. If he is out on bail that leaves it up to the public to get this mother fuker psychopath. Don’t wait for legal justice it will not be enough. Beat the crap out of his worthless cunt body cut his cock off and rape his filthy bum hole with large sharp poles. If he is still alive shove his cock in his fowl mouth and let him choke

    • What he needs is a red hot poker up his a**e : before or after his co*k is hacked off with a rusty old knife- hope some vigilantes are reading this cos it needs doing NOW
