Target: Police Chief Rusty York and the Fort Wayne Police Department
Goal: Punish couple for keeping their puppy locked up in a room and starving it to death
A Fort Wayne, Indiana couple is met with charges for allegedly starving their puppy to death in a locked bedroom in their residence. They were specifically questioned for locking their small dog in a bedroom in their house and not feeding it. When being interrogated for the incident by the authorities, the couple confessed that they did not like the dog any longer because it was fighting with the other dogs. They admitted that they heard the dog barking and scratching from behind the door, but did absolutely nothing about it.
According to news reports, the authorities found out that the puppy was the last of a litter of puppies recently sold, and when they could not sell this particular one, they decided to completely stop feeding it. With allegations of this incident, a police officer came to the couple’s home with a search warrant, and that is when he saw the horrible animal abuse happening. The police officer saw the dog lying still, and the area where they kept it was covered in animal feces. There were also scratch marks all over the door where the dog had struggled to escape.
The couple is now facing charges for torturing an animal, cruelty to an animal, and concealing a non-immunized dog. Please sign this petition so that authorities can punish this couple to the full extent of the law for cruel and unusual animal abuse.
Dear Police Chief Rusty York and the Fort Wayne Police Department,
Thank you for looking into inquiries and serving this Indiana couple a search warrant for their alleged animal abuse. It is shocking to know that a couple can hear the barks and cries of a puppy and not come to its rescue. This couple was able to lock up their pet and was willing to let it starve to death.
This is one of the worst cases of domesticated animal abuse I have ever heard. The couple’s excuse for killing their dog is that they didn’t like it anymore. It is a very unusual reason to starve a living creature to death. They could have given the dog away or dropped it off at a local animal shelter. The couple needs to be arrested and punished for abusing this small dog. No animal deserves to die in this manner. Justice needs to be served to these animal abusers so that they never do this ever again.
