Woman Accused of Kicking and Stomping on Dog Must be Punished

Target: Craig Stedman, District Attorney for Lancaster County, Pennsylvania

Goal: Punish the mother who allegedly instructed her child to abuse a dog.

A dog was injured after he was allegedly stomped on and kicked. Disturbing video footage apparently showed the suspect kicking the dog and then instructing her child to follow her example. Demand justice for this innocent animal.

Lancaster police arrived at Ashley Gaston’s home following accusations of animal abuse. There, they spoke with the suspect, who denied doing anything more than hitting the dog once after he bit her son. An alarming video then surfaced apparently showing Gaston kick and stomp on Trigger, a 14-18-month-old terrier, and instructing her child to do the same. A thorough investigation showed that the child had no bite-related injuries and Trigger suffered from bruised lungs.

Gaston has been charged with aggravated cruelty to animals, endangering the welfare of children, and corruption of minors. Sign below to demand that Gaston receive the maximum penalty possible, if convicted.


Dear District Attorney Stedman,

A dog was reportedly kicked and stomped, allegedly by a mother and her child. A video circulated on the internet seemingly showing the suspect encouraging her young child to abuse their pet. I demand that justice be served in this case.

The video is disturbing on multiple levels. The suspect, identified as Ashley Gaston, is apparently seen kicking and stomping her 14-18-month-old terrier, named Trigger, repeatedly. Then, in one final scene, she apparently instructed her child to kick Trigger. This contradicted a previous story given by Gaston, prompting investigators to examine both the child and the dog. Trigger suffered bruised lungs, per the examination, and the child had no evidence of dog bites- as suggested by Gaston. Now Trigger is in safekeeping and Gaston is in jail, in lieu of bond.

If these charges are proven true, then this woman not only abused her dog, but also her child. This calls for a punishment that fits the crime and saves this child from suspected further corruption. I demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this disturbing case.

    Please give this evil monster of a human the maximum punishment and never let her anywhere near another animal, ever! She is clearly a danger to society but also her child! She is disgraceful and her actions are utterly unacceptable!

  2. Sick woman .The freaks that walk this earth. Time to cull these disturbed individuals. Nothing good to come out of them.
