Dear District Attorney Lee,

A snake died in agony after two men allegedly lit the poor animal on fire. A shocking video, posted to Facebook, reportedly shows the men hitting and running over the snake before lighting him ablaze. We demand justice for this poor snake.

Onslow County Animal Services charged Garen Whittington and Dustin Shearin with animal cruelty after they allegedly burned the snake to death. A graphic video shows the two men reportedly hitting the brown water snake on the head and then partially running the poor animal over in a parking lot. They then doused the snake in engine starter fluid and set him on fire, officers confirmed. Whittington and Shearin will answer their charges at a later date.

The people who allegedly tortured and killed this innocent animal must be punished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.
