A dog died after a groomer allegedly left him unattended beneath a hot dryer. The dog was locked inside of a crate, per police, and he had a noose tied around his neck. Demand justice for this innocent dog.

A citizen contacted police and claimed that a groomer caused the death of her beloved dog, Teddy. The five-year-old golden retriever reportedly died inside of a crate at Mrs. Doolittle’s Bath House, a grooming business owned by Beth Bessemer. Teddy was found with a noose tied around his neck, police stated, and it appeared that he had overheated.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear County Attorney Conway,

A dog suffered and died after he was allegedly left unattended under a hot dryer. The dog was reportedly locked inside of a crate and had a noose tied around his neck. We demand justice for this innocent dog.

Police arrested a groomer on two counts of animal cruelty after she allegedly left a dog under a hot dryer unattended. Teddy, a five-year-old golden retriever, was reportedly found dead inside of a crate at Mrs. Doolittle’s Bath House, his neck tied with a noose. It appeared that Teddy had been trapped under a hot dryer unsupervised for an extended period of time, leading to his overheating and eventual death. The groomer, Beth Bessemer, has been released on bail under the condition that she not have any contact with animals. She will answer her charges at a later date.

This alleged neglect cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    this groomer should be tied so she can not move and set on fire !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    THIS IS ABSOLUTELY ANIMAL ABUSE AND ANIMAL CRUELTY. PERIOD.

    NO EXCUSE SHE SHOULD BE BURNED SO SHE KNOWS HOW THIS INNOCENT ANIMAL SUFFERED.

    SHE SHOULD BE PUNISHED JUST AS SHE PUNISHED THIS INNOCENT DOG.
    THIS DID NOT NEED TO HAPPEN!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I have worked as a Forensic Mental Health Professional and trauma therapist for over 25 years. During this time, I have contracted with jails, prisons, and community corrections in various states, after working as a correctional officer for a few years. I can attest that there is a very strong correlation between the way people treat animals of any kind and the way they can all-too-easily, and without hesitation, remorse, or empathy, treat fellow human beings. If you would not want your son, daughter, sister, brother, grandchild, or parent treated this way, take a stand and sign every petition against animal abuse that you can find – wild and domestic, in the USA and across the world! YES, the pictures & videos are heart-wrenching but ignoring them does not solve the problem. Be brave for the innocent; when you ignore this cruel, heart-less behavior, you are giving more power to the abusers.

  3. Whom ever invented this product should be ashamed! And this happens many timed groomers walk away while a poor animal boils to death this machine needs to be taken out of stores and people need to learn to wash their own friggin dogs its not hard to do i wash two dogs every two weeks anf blow dry them by hand they enjoy it and my blow dryer even has the cool button as well incase its too hot!

  4. This is horrific for the dog and family to lose a life from a hot drier is the groomers fault! Need to give the maximum penalty under law!!

    FIRE this freak. People you can’t just trust anyone with your furry baby. There are to many neglectful people out there, that only care about the money that they can make and not the safety of your sweet pet. Soooooo sorry for this poor sweet dog.

  6. Shut this place down and jail this idiot. Poor Teddy. If that was my dig there would be precious little of this stupid cow to prosecute.

  7. Barbara Hansen says:

    I so hope and pray that this groomer is immediately shut down so she can never do something so cruel to another beloved pet.

  8. Anyone who’s so negligent should not be in animal care business. She tortured this poor dog to death. Shut her down now so she can’t harm another pet.

  9. Death wish for this filth-bag animal abusing.murdering,incompetent bitch.

  10. Deaths of pets at groomers’ have become all too common these days. If I had to have my pet washed, etc., I’d either do it MYSELF, call a mobile groomer to my home, or stand there watching so that COULDN’T happen. In light of all these stories, anything less has become irresponsible.

  11. PUT HER IN A CRATE AND PUT A HEATING LAMP OVER HER THEN LEAVE HER THERE UNTIL SHE DIES.

  12. Alison Scott says:

    This is appalling a so called groomer . The poor poor animal . This person deserves severe punishment.

  13. The penalty for animal abuse should be harsher, the perpetrators should be punished the same way as when the victim is human!

  14. WHAT the hell is wrong with these monsters………they deserve the same treatment not to die BUT to wish they could get free.
    No kidding I am sure the elevator doesn’t go to the top for these sicko’s.
    They deserve TOP punishment,

  15. REMEMBER our loving animals did not have a choose to where they wonted us or not WE chose them SOOOOOO WHY would you wont to hurt them (they would protect you.)

    I say throw the BOOK at them not a light slap on the wrist with a stiff fine, make sure this is not forgotten..
    I’m all for helping the animals that don’t get a chance to voice for them selves..
    LETS PROCTECT THESE FUR BABIES…that look to us for HELP.

  16. NOT GOOD ENOUGH — PUT THIS F IN A CAGE WITH A NOOSE AROUND THER NECK AND PUMP IN THE EXTREME HEAT — MAKE SURE SHE DOES NOT COME OUT!!!!!

  17. So very heartbreaking — so depravedly indifferent and NEGLIGENT — Ms. Beth Bessemer NEEDS to find another line of work NOT involving Animals in any capacity — MAKE HER PAY for her CRIME — with Animals, you can NEVER FALL ASLEEP at the wheel — this is extremely IRRESPONSIBLE.
