Pet Dog Beaten to Death Deserves Justice



Target: Joel Brott, Sherburne County Sheriff

Goal: Demand the harshest possible charges against the alleged perpetrator of a senseless dog beating and murder

A man is facing prison time for allegedly torturing his girlfriend’s pet Shiba Inu husky named Draco before killing her and throwing her in a ditch. Anthony Sather of Minnesota has been charged with felony animal torture after recordings of the beating were found on his computer. In the video, Sather smiles for the camera as he repeatedly punches the whimpering dog before slamming it into the ground. Another video shows Sather shooting the dog as it laid helpless on the ground.

When a concerned citizen notified his girlfriend, Andrea Godfrey, that her dog was lying dead in a ditch, Sather managed to cover up the death by convincing Godfrey that the dog was mistaken for a coyote by a hunter. He kept the secret until Godfrey found videos of the killing saved on his computer and forwarded them to the sheriff, who opened an investigation.

For the felony animal torture charge, Sather could face four years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. During the raid, police also found large quantities of illegally-obtained prescription drugs. Sather also faces two counts of felony drug possession and is being held on a $250,000 bail pending his trial. If found guilty of all the charges, the abuser could spend up to 15 years in prison.

Sather displayed a shocking lack of conscience both during the beating and afterward, when he manipulated his girlfriend to cover up his crimes. Taking a tough stance against the crime with felony charges will ensure that he faces an appropriate punishment, and could deter others from committing similar offenses. Sign the petition below to praise the charges against this heartless animal abuser.


Dear Sheriff Joel Brott,

Anthony Sather is facing up to four years in prison for a felony animal torture charge. He savagely beat his girlfriend’s pet dog, punching it, slamming it against a concrete floor, and finally shooting it and throwing it in a ditch. In a video of the incident, Sather is seen smiling and expressing pride for his violent crimes.

The cruel beating showed a complete lack of empathy, while covering up the dog’s death proved that Sather felt little guilt for his actions. We, the undersigned, praise the tough stance taken against this dangerous and cruel offender.

    Abuse is the ultimate betrayal towards any living soul and absolutely heartbreaking all the way around. You simply can not do such a horrific thing without it killing the best in you. Period. But in case there are any out there who couldn’t care less about torturing animals – which says a lot about you, as well – then think on this: If you find people happily willing to hurt an animal in any way, they are actually finding a venue to act out their deepest, most inner evil fantasies of twisted sickness. There’s nothing more revolting than that. Aside from this, it has been proven over and over again that people who have horrid intents with animals, get bored with them soon enough, ultimately leading them to bigger prey, moving up to people, in order to re-ignite and enhance the excitement that the torturing of animals used to provide. It’s simply never enough. And do not forget, these horrendous monsters also end up raising their children in “the game”, breeding evil, little sickos to continue on “the trade”… no doubt causing abuse in every level of their lives, as well. It’s just a revolting cycle that will never end until someone gets into it and breaks the heart-wrenching pattern. So, even if an animal is not of your utmost concern, then note that it will not stop there. It is just a start. And it is just a matter of time.

    “A righteous man regards the life of animals.” – PROVERBS 12:10; “If you have men who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the shelter of compassion & pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.” – ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI; “Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.” – MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.; “I hope to make people realize how totally helpless animals are, how dependent on us, trusting as a child must that we will be kind and take care of their needs… (They) are an obligation put on us, a responsibility we have no rights to neglect, nor to violate by cruelty….” – JAMES HARRIOT; “The greatness of a nation & its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated… I hold that the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection of man from the cruelty of man.” – MAHATMA GANDHI
