Demand Justice for Puppy Allegedly Dragged, Choked, and Beaten

Target: Hal Kittrell, District Attorney 15th Circuit Court of Mississippi

Goal: Punish man who allegedly dragged, choked, and cruelly beat a dog to the fullest extent of the law.

A man in Prentiss, Mississippi, was arrested after video footage implicated him as the person who dragged, choked, and beat a harmless puppy. The accused had recently adopted a dog from a local animal shelter. A neighbor posted a video on social media showing an abuser ruthlessly tugging a choking dog down a path and beating it on the head with a plastic leash handle.

The suspect, William Harrison, is being held at the Jefferson Davis County Jail on a $1,000 bond. He is charged with one count of animal cruelty for willfully and unlawfully torturing a dog. Mississippi classifies animal cruelty as a misdemeanor crime.

Fortunately, local animal advocates in the area have been able to place this poor little dog in a new home that is safe and secure. Many people have expressed outrage about this alleged animal cruelty, and they are demanding the perpetrator of this crime be held accountable. Apparently, one supporter offered to pay all legal fees required to assure that the executor of this crime receive the maximum sentence.

People who harm animals are a danger to society. There is a clear connection between violence against animals and human beings. Sign the petition to demand punishment to the fullest extent of the law if the accused is found to be guilty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Kittrell,

A resident of Prentiss, Mississippi, was allegedly caught on camera dragging a puppy down the road, mercilessly choking the helpless animal while hitting it on the head with the handle of a plastic leash. A neighbor saw the animal abuse in action and posted video footage of the cruelty on social media, leading to his arrest. The suspect, William Harrison, has been apprehended and charged with animal cruelty, and he is being held at the Jefferson Davis County Jail.

Crime statistics reveal that people who abuse animals are five times as likely to cause harm to humans. Most disturbing in this case, the accused recently adopted a dog from the Columbia Animal Shelter. It is frightening to think of the possibility that this mistreatment of a defenseless dog could have been a premeditated crime.

A strong societal message must be conveyed that this type of deviant, malicious behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. People who harm other life forms threaten the well-being of every creature around them. If the suspect is convicted, I ask that he receive the maximum punishment of a $10,000 fine and five years in jail.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Punishment at the fullest extent of the law surely isn’t enough for this creep. He could easily kill a baby. We need stiffer laws.

  2. Get this guy off the streets. We need tougher laws for animal abuse.

  3. I’m glad you have got this bastard, but this is not a misdemeanor, it is downright cruelty and violent viciousness against an animal.It’s wilful wickedness and he must be treated to the full force of the law. You don’t need a lowlife like this.
    Get rid!

  4. Hook this sonofabitch up behind a pick-up truck and drag him
    for a couple of miles. See how he would like it. And if his head accidently popped off, then so be it. No mercy for cowards like him, period!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. The only way to stop this sickos is: 1-Do the exact same thing to them; 2- If the animal survive is injuries, the human beast who had done that should always be killed after getting the same. Should be in public place like in old times. Death penalty needs to come back as soon as possible for many crimes srating by the ones hurting and making 4 paws suffer as they are sickos, also pedophiles, rappists, sociopaths a new kind, drug dealers which the ones who selel alcohol to people they know are alcoholics, are no different. Kill them all for yesterday.

    He needs counseling, be off the streets, well away from other species and never be able to own or associate with animals ever again. Massive fines coupled with jail time is all I ask.

  7. William Harrison, you too are marked. Threefold will be your suffering for what you have done. So mote it be. You worthless piece of shit.

    • Let there be vigilante groups I say. We need to inflict appropriate punishment on scumbags like this. Why the hell is this considered misdemeanour only? This shit needs severe punishment – something in the order of permanent disfigurement

    I don’t understand why the laws to protect these beautiful, sentient beings is so lax? They have not been changed since the days of the caveman! If you charged a guilty sub human Fifty years to life in prison and a 2million dollar fine, there wouldn’t be sick people like this getting away Scott free. These people are narcissistic and psychopaths. Their next victims will be innocent children, young ladies and the elderly! It breaks my heart to see such cruelty! There is no difference in murdering a sentient being vs. murdering a human Change the laws! You have done nothing to protect these innocent Souls!!!

  9. This horrible monster deserves the same treatment! Low life POS. I’m so glad the baby dog is safe. The death penalty for souless devils like this.

  10. Agree all comments

    I can promise you Mr. Harrison that somewhere down the road you will come to regret your actions against this poor defenseless puppy. Your mind one day is going to keep reminding you of what a horrible person you are. I am glad this pup has been placed in a loving forever home, whereas with you, Harrison, I am sure you have sunk to a new lower than ever level in your community.

  12. Dangerous sadistic psychopaths who brutalized defenseless puppies MUST receive the maximum sentence–huge fines and years in prison. Harrison is a threat to all living beings–animals and human.
    Anyone who would torture a dog–dragging, choking and beating a helpless puppy–is a severely demented soulless beast!
    Our society must demand respect and protection for animals who suffer equally as humans, physically and emotionally. We must do it for the animals–but, also, for ourselves. Allowing torturers to lenient sentences is not helping anyone! Demand the strictest sentence possible!
