Five Puppies Found Emaciated and Starving to Death–Demand Justice

Target: Hon. K. Clay Ratley, County Attorney for Grayson County, Kentucky

Goal: Demand that the man who allegedly starved five puppies and denied his animals desperately needed veterinary care receive the maximum penalty by law.

Five beagle puppies were allegedly starved and denied veterinary care in a shocking case of animal cruelty. Several chickens and other animals were also reportedly found dead on the property. Demand justice for these poor animals.

Grayson County Police arrested 56-year-old Greg Rigdon after Animal Control allegedly found several unidentified animal carcasses, dead chickens, and five starving beagle puppies on his property. Per veterinarians, all the puppies were in distress, and one of the puppies was so emaciated that they thought she would have to be euthanized. The puppy survived, thanks to medication and round the clock care.

The beagle puppies were taken to the county animal shelter for treatment, and the emaciated puppy is recovering in a foster home. Rigdon was charged with animal cruelty and more charges are expected to follow. Sign below and demand that Rigdon receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear County Attorney Ratley,

Five beagle puppies nearly died when they were allegedly neglected and denied food. The puppies were reportedly in distress, emaciated, and in need of serious veterinary care. We demand justice for these poor animals.

Grayson County police charged Greg Ridgon with animal cruelty after five sick and emaciated beagle puppies were allegedly found on his property. One puppy’s ribs reportedly showed through her skin, and she was allegedly so sick that veterinarians did not expect her to survive. In addition to the puppies, police allegedly found dead chickens and multiple unidentified animal carcasses on Ridgon’s property. Ridgon is being held at the Grayson County Detention Center, and the investigation is ongoing.

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

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Greg Rigdon is not human. Anyone with an ounce of humanity would not do this to any living being. He needs to be charged to the maximum and more. He needs his property confiscated and sold with the funds going to Animal Shelters and groups who stand up for animal protection. If the law does not start making examples of these people this will just continue. Make them pay.

    • Absolutely. The scumbag needs to suffer, total evil retard. Hope some vigilantes can see to him, save money on court costs , he needs to die SOON barbaric moron

    Are these puppies available for adoption?

  4. Eugene W Sengstake Jr says:

    Give him the maximum penalty under law??? What a joke. A small fine and a slap on the wrist??? Unless there are extenuating circumstances that we aren’t aware of – there is no reason for Greg Rigdon to be taking up any space whatsoever on planet earth – – –

  5. This good ol’boy needs to pay for what he did.

  6. This rigdon is a piece of rat shit. What on earth did that thing crawl out from under? How do assholes like that even live with themselves? If there is any type of justice in the world that rigdon will get sentenced to prison for a long time. I hope it rots in there too. The less garbage running loose in the world, the better!

    ONCE AGAIN THE JUSTICE SYSTEM HAS A LOT TO ANSWER FOR!
    Look at your recent Texas Gunman. His history – was reported for leaving his dog tired up in the sun, no water and for repeatedly bashing the dog in the head. Got a misdemeanour for cruelty, that’s it. Dog continues to be bashed. Whilst in the service assaults wife and broke his stepchild’s skull. Authorities knew all about this. Now he takes out those poor people at church.
    The Law continues to fail us. We must take action and now.
    It could be your child, wife, husband, mother, daughter next and then you will care.
