Dog Reportedly Attacked With Burning Hot Poker Deserves Justice

Target: Thomas M. Quinn III, District Attorney for Bristol County, Massachusetts

Goal: Punish the man who allegedly kicked, dragged, and burned his dog with a hot fireplace poker.

A dog was allegedly kicked, dragged, and burned with a fireplace poker in a shocking case of animal cruelty. The dog also appeared malnourished and neglected, police stated. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

“The vet looked at the injuries and stated that they were consistent with being deliberately burned,” stated Lt. Kevin Kobza of the Fairhaven Police Department. Police removed Bella, a one-and-a-half-year-old Portuguese Water Dog mix, from Paulo Raposo’s home after they received reports of animal abuse and neglect. Per witness accounts, Raposo had kicked and dragged Bella prior to burning her with a hot fireplace poker. She also reportedly appeared malnourished and in need of veterinary care.

The Fairhaven Animal Shelter took custody of Bella and she is recovering. Raposo has been charged with cruelty to animals and his arraignment has been scheduled. Sign below and demand that Raposo receives the maximum penalty possible, if convicted.

Dear District Attorney Quinn,

    This abuse is never going to end, until the laws for animals change and become just as harsh as the abuse. I hope and pray that this scum bag has a horrible painful life and burns in hell forever. I’m praying that beautiful Bella has a speedy recovery and finds a forever home. Someone who will love and care for her sweet self.
