Target: Katherine Fernandez Rundle, Miami-Dade State Attorney
Goal: Prosecute the men who allegedly abused and violently slaughtered thousands of animals with the harshest punishment under law.
Miami-Dade police recently arrested two farm owners for allegedly committing abhorring animal cruelty to nearly 9,500 animals. The two men were reportedly operating an illegal slaughterhouse where police rescued nearly 9,500 pigs, goats, chickens and cows living in deplorable conditions, with many animals already dead and partially eaten.
Sadly, around 100 animals were found in such horrific condition they had to be euthanized immediately by rescue veterinarians. The rest of the animals are being transported to various shelters in what some are calling America’s biggest animal rescue mission ever.
Some animals were starving so badly that they began to eat each other. Many animals were found shackled up, starving to death without food, water, or access to fresh air. The animals being kept and slaughtered in such unsanitary conditions caused many of the animals to catch diseases, posing a public health risk because the meat from these animals was being sold to unknowing citizens.
An undercover investigation revealed that the men would allegedly throw around the animals, beat them, tie them up, then hang them and slit their throats in order to kill them. Police said pigs who still showed signs of life were being boiled alive and drowned to death. Luckily these men have been caught, but they need to face the worst possible consequences for their alleged sickening actions. Animal cruelty is a revolting crime that cannot be tolerated. By signing this petition, you will help to demand these abusers face the full penalty under law for their crimes.
Dear Attorney Fernandez Rundle,
Two men were recently arrested by Miami-Dade police when nearly 9,500 animals were rescued from horrifying living conditions on the mens’ farm. These animals were not only living in crowded, unsanitary conditions without adequate food, water, shelter and fresh air, they were being inhumanely slaughtered. These men reportedly violently abused tons of animals, through the direct force of beating them and boiling alive, and through extreme neglect.
Some people are reporting that this is the biggest animal rescue case in the history of the United States. What these men did is so unthinkable, it cannot go unpunished without the worst possible consequences. We have to take a stand for the innocent animals that can’t speak for themselves and who had to face such saddening and unnecessary suffering. I urge you to prosecute these men under the highest possible punishment of the law.
