Punish Property Owner for Alleged Animal Cruelty and Neglect

Target: Pam Bondi, Attorney General of Florida

Goal: Punish man charged with a gross of animal cruelty counts.

A Florida man was arrested on 144 counts of animal cruelty; 131 animals were reportedly found on his property starved with no access to food, and 13 were found dead and improperly disposed of. Additionally, five more animals reportedly died of poor health after the survivors were rescued. Robert David Starkweather will be taken to court in the middle of May.

This is the latest entry on a list already too long, a list of property owners with far too many animals who allegedly allowed the poor creatures to suffer from a lack of proper care. Be it negligence, a struggle to keep up with the costs and labor of raising so many animals, or outright cruelty, this man has allegedly allowed too many animals to die needless deaths. Farming and ranching are bigger responsibilities than most people realize, and this failure to realize leads to many animals suffering and dying.

Regardless of intention, Starkweather has allegedly committed many acts of animal cruelty through neglect, and he must face justice. Sign this petition to demand he face justice and forbidden to keep any animals in the future.


Dear Attorney General Bondi,

Over 100 animals were reportedly found starving and 13 dead on a Collier County man’s property; additionally, five more reportedly died after the survivors were rescued. The animals had been cut off from access to food, and the dead ones had not been properly buried or disposed of, according to reports. Robert David Starkweather has been charged with 144 counts of cruelty.

You must ensure that this man faces justice for his alleged crimes. There has been a disturbing rise in cases such as this, in which property owners reportedly fail to properly care for a surplus of animals for varied reasons. Farming and ranching are huge responsibilities, and so many people do not seem to realize this. Starkweather may not have meant any true harm, but his alleged crimes still cost 18 animals their lives. Please see that he faces justice.
