Man Accused of Slicing Dog’s Neck With Knife Must be Punished

Target: Michael Cochrane, Prosecutor for Wyoming County, West Virginia

Goal: Demand that the man who allegedly cut a dog’s neck with a knife, seriously injuring the dog, receives the maximum penalty by law.

A dog’s neck was allegedly cut with a knife in a shocking case of animal cruelty. A photo, posted on Facebook, shows the dog with a large bloody wound on his neck. Demand justice for this poor dog.

A photo of a seriously injured dog went viral, leading to the arrest of 32-year-old Ricky Hanshaw, Jr. Brutus, the dog in the photo, suffered a serious injury to his neck after Hanshaw allegedly cut him with a knife. The cut was dangerously close to Brutus’s main artery and his voice box, police stated, requiring him to have surgery to repair his injuries.

Wyoming County Paw Patrol took Brutus into their custody and he is recovering. A second uninjured dog was also taken from Hanshaw’s care. Hanshaw was charged with animal cruelty and criminal invasion of privacy. He is reportedly on a no-bond hold due to his violation of parole. Sign below and demand that Hanshaw receives the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.

    Cut his throat. Period.

    Ricky should be chained to a lamp post in a busy intersection with a large picture of Brutus and what Ricky did. I am sure the public will get their thought across to him. Disgusting person. What kind of family raises someone to be like this.

    • since the laws for animal mistreatment and abuse are not nearly strict enough nor are they enforced, this sounds like a reasonable alternative: let the public take care of this horrid “person”. No use for abuse.

  3. Remember what goes around comes around
    Enjoy your bad karma forever you parasite and continue to rot like a corpse you maggot
    ENJOY !!!! ?

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