Dog Allegedly Infested With Maggots, Feces, and Urine Deserves Justice

Target: Timothy D. Sini, Suffolk County, New York District Attorney

Goal: Give woman harshest legal penalty for allegedly allowing her dog to become infested with maggots, feces, and urine.

A dog in New York was found to be severely neglected and tragically suffering due to the alleged abuse of her owner. Bunnie Smith was charged with animal cruelty shortly after a veterinarian at the New York Veterinary Specialty Center allegedly found maggots and open wounds on her dog, Diamond. Smith needs to be given the maximum legal sentence if it is found that she neglected her dog by failing to keep up with her veterinary care.

According to the SPCA, Diamond not only had maggots, she also allegedly had old wounds on her body, smelled of waste, and was incapable of walking. According to experts, maggots can cause toxicity in dogs, which can eventually lead to the animal becoming severely ill and eventually dying. If the dog did have past sores and extreme infestation, she was likely suffering long before being taken to a veterinarian.

Smith was given a field appearance ticket after the dog was examined and is scheduled to be in court at the end of May. Dogs deserve owners who will properly take care of them. Sign this petition to demand Smith be given the strictest legal sentence if it is found she neglected or abused Diamond in any way.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Sini,

A dog named Diamond was said to be covered in sores and maggots by a veterinary specialist. The person allegedly responsible for this animal abuse needs to get the severest legal sentence so that she will be less likely to abuse more animals.

Bunnie Smith was issued an appearance ticket for animal cruelty shortly after her dog was seen by a veterinarian. The veterinarian stated that the dog smelled like feces and urine. Feces was also allegedly found in the dog’s hair. If a dog is infested with maggots for months, she can go into shock and even die. Old wounds and numerous maggots on a dog are likely clear indicators that an animal has been suffering for an extended amount of time.

While it is good news that Smith was charged with animal cruelty and that the dog is no longer in her care, Diamond should have never had to endure this alleged suffering. We therefore demand that you suggest Smith be given the maximum punishment allowed by law if she is found guilty of such senseless animal abuse and neglect.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    I AM SOOOOOOOO SICK OF ANIMAL ABUSERS / ANIMAL MURDERERS!!! It will never stop, until we adopt MUCH STRONGER penalties & more SEVERE jail sentences!!! Tiny babies & helpless animals continue to be at the mercy of dangerous, evil and immoral humans, and our courts and law-enforcement members do NOT SEEM TO CARE!!! EVIL will flourish as long as good men continue to do nothing & choose to ignore, rather than confront!!! 👿👿👿

  2. Life in prison no question! Animal abuse is never ok!! Make an example of these horrible people!!!

  3. She needs to be removed from the earth permanently

  4. Anyone who would let their pet get into this state is unfit to have a pet and is in fact an animal abuser. Remove the dog, ban her from animal contact for life and fine the crap out of this sadistic and pathetic excuse of a human. And what is going on in New York? Are you competing with Florida and Pennsylvania for the ‘Worst Place to be an Animal’ trophy because this is about the 10th abuse story I’ve seen this week out of your state – there are laws to stop this abuse, please use them!

  5. Trash like this never change. The only “hope” is by throwing them in jail to give them time to think about their ways. God forbid this low life have children.

  6. Patrick Butler says:

    Ban this crazy from ever having animals again! Does she have a husband? Children? Are they OK?

  7. Evan Jane Kriss says:

    BAN this heartless monster from EVER owning, caring for or working with ANY animals ever again. Prosecute to the fullest extent of the law for egregious animal abuse and cruelty. Make her PAY ALL VET BILLS to restore this poor dog to full health.

  8. This stupid witch needs to be beat with a steel bat! What is wrong with her?? She should spend a long time in jail, pay a huge fine plus the vet bill and never be allowed near an animal–ever!

  9. Throw her into a vat of raw sewage which is where she belongs.
    Let her rot to death!
