Dog Severely Burned While Chained to Kennel Deserves Justice

Target: Kim Ogg, District Attorney for Harris County, Texas

Goal: Demand that the man accused of setting a dog kennel on fire with a dog chained to it receive the maximum penalty by law.

A dog named Tank suffered and could have died after the his kennel was lit on fire with the dog chained to it. Tank survived, but burns covered 60 percent of his body. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

After a search, police arrested Edwin Jermaine Stewart and charged him with the crime. Per witnesses, Stewart carried a red gasoline can into the back yard shortly before the fire was ignited and later broke a window in the resident’s home as he was trying to flee. The dog’s owner reported that he also had a physical altercation with Stewart. Tank, a 60-pound pit bull, suffered burns to over 60 percent of his body, and he was covered in melted hair. Tank was described as skittish, frightened, and in pain when he was rescued.

Tank survived, and his current condition is unreported. Stewart has been charged with cruelty to a non-livestock animal and is now in custody. Sign below and demand that Stewart receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.


Dear District Attorney Ogg,

A dog named Tank suffered burns to over 60 percent of his body after his kennel was burned. The suspect reportedly doused the kennel in gasoline and set it ablaze with the dog still chained to the kennel. We demand justice for this poor dog.

Tank, a 60-pound pit bull, cowered in fear and pain after Edwin Jermaine Stewart allegedly set his kennel on fire. A neighbor stated that he witnessed Stewart entering Tank’s yard with a red gasoline can and immediately notified Tank’s owner. Moments later, the kennel was reportedly ablaze, and Tank remained chained to the source of the fire. Per investigators, Tank had melted hair on his back, sides, both rear legs, underbelly and groin area. Stewart was charged with animal cruelty and remains in custody.

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

    What is wrong with this pos idiot? There is no excuse for this heinous act towards an innocent animal. He deserves the same treatment, and Tank’s owner should be charged with animal abuse for chaining his dog to a kennel.

  2. Someone should burn down his house when he sleeps. There is no reason whatsoeve for cruelity to animals. Keep this idiot away from any children even his own.

    We all know the law will do nothing to punish or deter these Monsters. Do the World a Favour. Stop this next Serial Killer in Training!
    World Research states they start with abuse, torture and murder of animals and then move on to humans. Children first as like animals they cannot fight back. CHECK OUT THE RESEARCH. e.g. Kelly Mass Murderer one of many!
    I don’t live in your country but surely there is someone out there that will do to him what he did to this poor dog. Let’s see how he does when he comes up against someone bigger and stronger than him.
    Perpetrator Satan is coming for you. We are patient when you think this is all over we will get you.

    Justice for Tank!

  5. This freak will never be normal. This vicious sick pychopathic criminal should never ever be free to endanger normal decent people. If the DA and the police do not agree then let this out of control criminal live at the DA house or the police chiefs house let the, introduce this dangerous criminal to thier wives or husbands and thier children!! Keep this violent criminal away from my family!

  6. It seems like two idiots tried to kill this poor dog. The owner who chained him to a kennel–Why?! and the psychopath who tried to burn Tank to death.

    Why aren’t they, both, charged with animal cruelty?!
    People involved with malicious behavior towards animals are extremely dangerous to ALL living beings.

    Just put a bullet in that things’ head! The world has enough problem without more trash like animal torturers in it. Those things are worthless and even one bullet is too good for a piece of shit like that, but its faster and cheaper than putting that crap in prison.

  8. Chain this P*O*S* Edward Jermaine Stewart to a wooden pole and set his useless a$$ on fire, I’ll bring the sticks and the marsh mellows! Our society does not have room for this worthless monster, he needs to go!

  9. Dolores Proubasta says:

    Glad to see so many animal advocates consider that chaining Tank enabled the criminal to do what he had in mind. Actually, following an “altercation” leaving one’s own pet outdoors is asking for it because cowards always target those who can’t help themselves. Chaining any animal for any length of time, unless it is briefly and the owner is present, should be a felony per se –as it is chaining a child– in every state of the Union.
