Demand Justice for Abandoned, Starved Dog

Target: Tony Clark, District Attorney for Tennessee 1st Judicial District

Goal: Punish a woman who allegedly doomed her pet to death from starvation.

A shelter puppy believed to be headed for a loving home met a tragic end last year. In June of 2017, a Johnson City, Tennessee landlord made a horrendous discovery: the decomposing body of a young dog. Authorities believe the dog belonged to Lindsey Price, 29, a former tenant of the condo where the body was found. A grand jury indicted the woman on charges of aggravated animal cruelty, but the trial date was postponed to April earlier in January.

Records indicate that Price had previously adopted a black-and-brown puppy named Sugar (and renamed Luna) from a local animal shelter two years prior. An employee of the shelter confirmed that the animal who passed away is most likely the same dog adopted from the shelter. Price, however, would not confirm the charge that she left her pet to starve and ultimately die in a locked room when she moved from the condo. She instead elected to have the case heard by the grand jury.

Price has spent some time in jail: 20 days. This ‘sentence’ did not stem from the animal cruelty charges, though. Rather, it resulted from an unrelated DUI probationary violation. Price did not even serve this time consecutively. She was allowed to complete her sentence on weekends.

Price will receive another day in court when she appears before a criminal court in April. Sign this petition and demand that this alleged abuser receive a proper punishment this time and – more importantly – demand justice for a dog seeking a forever home who was instead banished to a house of horrors.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Clark,

Tennessee made a strong statement against animal cruelty when it created its statewide animal abuse registry. Cruelty does not always come in the obvious forms, however. Beatings, torture, and maiming may grab the headlines, but sometimes the greatest cruelties arise from cruel indifference. Consider this when you try the case of Lindsey Price.

The accused adopted a dog, Luna, and in doing so she made a pledge to provide this innocent living being entrusted to her care a safe, loving home. If the allegations prove true, she then abandoned this animal who was entirely dependent on her and left her pet to starve. For days, this animal wasted away slowly and painfully – sentenced to a fate far worse than any that might have awaited it in an animal shelter.

The perpetrator of this crime showed a cruel indifference to life. Please do not show the same indifference with a plea deal or by pursuing a lenient sentence. Seek punishment to the fullest extent of the law and send an unwavering message that careless cruelty will never become an acceptable norm.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. I have my own idea of what would be justice for this subhuman creature but if I out it in print, I’m sure I’ll be banded from this site. I hope she meets an animal lover, especially a dog lover, and they’re aware of what she’s done. I’d love to read the details of that! Sorry if this offends anyone but this is how I feel.

  2. This bitch knows what she has done and could have released the dog at any time. This case is an example of pure evil and must be treated as such. She needs putting away for a long time and must be made an example to any other subhuman thinking of torturing an animal. The dog was trusted to her safe keeping. She could have returned it-but no- she chose to starve it to death, alone, terrified and in agony.

  3. This pos purposely tortured this animal SHE CHOSE to take. She is a sadistic savage and should be punished as a felony analysis abuser at least!

    If guilty she should receive the same fate as that poor dog did. Lock the POS in a jail cell and let her starve to death…..slowly.

  6. I agree with Maureen Garney completely. No sympathy whatsoever for this Bitch when she is slowing dying in jail from starvation. Let her think every day, before she dies, of what she did to this pure, loving, loyal dog. People like this should never be allowed to own another animal the rest of their sorry lives. (I just know there are too many chicken-shit, bleeding heart liberals that wouldn’t go along with letting this piece of shit starve to death in a prison cell.)
