Puppy ‘Coughing Blood’ While ‘Dragged Down Driveway’ Deserves Justice

Target: Marian T. Ryan, District Attorney for Middlesex County, Massachusetts

Goal: Demand that the man who allegedly beat a puppy and dragged him down a driveway receive the maximum penalty by law.

A puppy was allegedly beaten with a stick and dragged down a driveway in a shocking case of animal cruelty. The puppy reportedly coughed up blood and suffered serious injuries. Demand justice for this poor puppy.

“It’s terrible. I don’t understand it. I can’t fathom someone could do that to an animal,” stated a concerned neighbor. She confronted Mark Hurd after he allegedly beat the 10-month-old pit bull puppy and then dragged him down a driveway. The puppy, named Chance by rescuers, reportedly sustained numerous serious injuries including multiple fractures, contusions, and bruises. A witness reportedly saw Hurd beating Chance with a stick and the puppy had bruises around his neck, indicating strangulation.

Police claim to have observed Hurd “dragging the dog down the driveway” and that “the dog was coughing blood and sustained an injury to its left leg.”

Everett Animal Control rescued Chance and provided him with much-needed medical care. He is recovering well. Hurd was arrested and charged with animal cruelty. Sign below and demand that Hurd receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.


Dear District Attorney Ryan,

A puppy suffered and nearly died when he was reportedly beaten, strangled, and dragged down a driveway. The puppy sustained multiple fractures during the alleged abuse. We demand justice for this innocent puppy.

Concerned neighbors watched in shock as Mark Hurd allegedly dragged his visibly injured 10-month-old pit bull puppy down the driveway. The puppy, named Chance by rescuers, reportedly coughed up blood and his little body was covered in bruises. A neighbor also reported that Hurd violently beat Chance with a stick on a separate occasion. Per veterinarians, the bruises on Chance’s neck indicated that he was strangled and he suffered multiple painful fractures.

This horrific abuse must be punished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

  1. Beat that fucker to death . Strict laws should be in place to own or breed animals . Why people get animals or give them to someone who does . Bring compulsory laws to have animals you be checked an on animal register to breed own buy.

  2. Phyllis Steging says:

    This person must be arrested and severely charged with a felony. He deserves a harsh sentence. Any abuse to an animal must be carried out with vigor.
    Too bad someone with a stick doesn’t beat this useless human being until he bled and suffered. Seems to me it’s only fair.

  3. Simon Rimmer says:

    Animal cruelty must become a death penalty crime, it’s time to clean up the human garbage in the world.

  4. Simon Rimmer says:
