Man Accused of Covering Puppies in Toxic Paint Must be Punished

Target: Josh Hawley, Missouri Attorney General

Goal: Ensure the man who allegedly coated four dogs in paint faces justice.

Four puppies were reportedly found heavily covered with paint in Kansas City, Missouri. Police responded to a call for help and arrested a man for alleged animal abuse and domestic violence. Officers report that they discovered the poor nine-week-old puppies in the suspect’s home plastered with toxic latex paint.

Animal control was called, and the pups were rescued from the home and taken to a local animal shelter. Upon admittance, the animals were examined by veterinarians. Paint removal is difficult without the use of more harmful chemicals. The veterinary team worked long hours to determine the best way to eliminate the noxious paint, concluding that shaving the painted fur off was the safest remedy. Although the animals have suffered health issues from mistreatment, they are expected to regain their health.

A shelter supervisor had reportedly been told the suspect poured a milk jug of paint onto the harmless dogs. It is not clear if the accused did this during a domestic dispute or for the sake of random cruelty. In domestic violence cases, abusers often harm or kill the beloved pets of their human victims to exert power and cause further pain and suffering. There is a close correlation between animal and human abuse.

This horrific cruelty epitomizes a person who has no regard for any living being. Whoever performed this abusive act is a danger to society and must be disallowed from owning animals. Furthermore, if determined guilty, the accused should receive the maximum allowable punishment.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney General Hawley,

The Kansas City Police Department received a distress call, and a man was soon taken into custody for alleged animal cruelty and domestic violence. Four puppies, approximately nine weeks old, were reportedly found in the suspect’s home in a wretched state and desperately in need of medical attention. These poor, helpless animals had apparently been covered head to toe with thick latex paint.

Fortunately, these innocent puppies were removed from the suspect’s residence and are in the care of the KC Pet Project. The only way to rid the dogs of the paint was to shave their fur entirely off. Despite some health problems resulting from mistreatment, the veterinarians predict the health of the puppies will be restored.

Anyone who would intentionally pour heavy, toxic paint onto small puppies is inhumane and a threat to all living things around them. People who abuse animals will most likely abuse other human beings, as potentially illustrated in this case with charges of both domestic violence and animal cruelty. I urge that the man who allegedly performed this act be prohibited from owning animals and punished to the fullest extent of the law, if found guilty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Am I ever tired of seeing these animal abusers names being withheld. Good way to let them go on abusing animals as no one knows who they are. For Heavens sake start printing their names.

  5. This sick psychopath’s name should be published. These poor 9-week old puppies could have died, if not rescued in time. He is a danger to ALL animals, as well as, humans.
