Thank NFL Team for Firing Player Who Committed Animal Abuse


Target: Baltimore Ravens Coach, John Harbaugh

Goal: Thank Baltimore Ravens for letting go of player indicted for animal abuse.

The National Football League’s (NFL) Baltimore Ravens recently released player Terrence Cody before he was officially indicted in Maryland on animal cruelty charges. Cody has been in the NFL for five years. According to ESPN News, Cody faces 15 charges that include: five counts of animal abuse, two counts of aggravated animal cruelty, and one count on illegal possession of an alligator in Maryland. Cody’s wife is also facing the same criminal charges in Baltimore County court.

An investigation into the abuse after Cody took his dog, a bullmastiff, to the veterinarian, where he ultimately died. Cody was arrested after being indicted for torturing and causing the death of his dog. A copy of the indictment stated that Cody inflicted unnecessary suffering on an animal and intentionally killed and tortured it. He also did not provide adequate shelter, food, and water for his pet. Lastly, Cody was indicted for illegally importing a live alligator into Maryland, which is a misdemeanor. After he was indicted, the Ravens let him go from their team. Coach John Harbaugh told the public that he has a low level of tolerance for cases like this. Along with the animal abuse, he is also being charged with possession of drugs. Cody might be given 3 years in prison.

Please sign this petition to thank the Baltimore Ravens for releasing Terrence Cody due to his cruelty toward animals in his care.


Dear Coach John Harbaugh,

Baltimore Ravens player Terrence Cody has been under investigation for the crimes he has committed against his dog and illegal alligator. Cody committed a serious crime by not providing his pet with adequate shelter, food, or water resulting in its death. On top of that, he had illegal possession of an alligator and was also in possession of drugs.

These crimes are punishable by law and would affect the team; therefore, it was the right decision to let him go. Hurting an innocent animal shows a lack of decency and common knowledge. Your statement was correct; you cannot tolerate behavior like this.

Terrence Cody was on a national football league, and what he has done sends the wrong message to kids who look up to him. Thank you for doing your part and releasing Terrence Cody from your team.

  1. Any and ALL animal abusers should be shown NO mercy for their heinous, cruelty and should be made to pay the same price their victims did. No tolerance for Cody OR Vick or anyone else who gets paid big bucks for playing in the NFL and seen as a hero by so much of the public and in reality they are just a bunch of sick abusers of innocent animals!!

  2. Excellent action! Excellent news! IT’S HEARTBREAKING TO learn of SUCH CRUELTY — WHERE’S Cody’s CONSCIENCE? where’s his RATIONALITY? WHERE’S HIS COMPASSION? Animals are innocent, defenseless, trusting, at the mercy of us humans — and this is how Cody treats them? — IT’S CRIMINAL AND IMMORAL AND SAVAGE AND HORRIFIC — what’s more, it’s psychopathic — the punishment should have been more severe – Cody should be evaluated — this is NOT normal, healthy behavior! Cody’s dangerous — throw HIM into A rubber rooms! Thus, innocent animals will be saved from suffering and abuse — trust me! — the Cody’s of the world are sociopaths!

  3. Hey Michael Vick …. now you’ll have a roommate in HELL !!!!
