Senior Dog Reportedly Left to Die With Mouth Taped Shut Deserves Justice

Target: Florida State Attorney for the 20th Judicial Circuit, Amira Fox

Goal: Give man who allegedly taped dog’s mouth shut with electrical tape and left him to suffer and die strictest legal sentence.

William Hilyard II allegedly taped his dog’s mouth shut and left him to die. He needs to get the harshest legal sentence if he is found guilty of such unwarranted animal abuse, to better ensure other animals stay safe.

Hilyard reportedly claims that he called police after seeing a news story that showed his dog lying dead on the ground. However, police suspected that he was in fact responsible for the crime. A judge told Hilyard that he is not allowed to have any pets if he makes bail. A cat was removed from his home to ensure the animal’s safety.

Hiyard’s dog was 17 years old when he died, most likely in fear and agony. Sign this petition and demand Hilyard be given the severest punishment under law if he is found guilty of this horrifying animal abuse.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear State Attorney Fox,

A deceased dog was recently found with his mouth taped shut. William Hilyard was later arrested for allegedly having committed the crime. He needs to spend maximum time behind bars if he is found guilty so that it will be less likely more animals will be harmed.

Hilyard allegedly claims he called the police after he watched a news segment about his dog having been found dead. After interviewing him, police concluded that Hilyard was responsible for the abuse and immediately arrested him. A judge made it clear that Hilyard would no longer be allowed to own pets. Police further took an adult cat out of Hilyard’s home to make sure that the animal’s safety would not be jeopardized.

It was determined that Hilyard’s dog was 17 years old at the time the reported incident took place. According to experts, dogs that are 16 or older have a higher chance of developing canine cognitive dysfunction, a disease that is similar to dementia in humans. It is therefore a high likelihood that this dog died confused and in pain. For these reasons, we demand you suggest Hilyard get the most time in prison the law will allow and that he also be charged with all pertinent fines if he is found guilty of such inexcusable animal cruelty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  2. Disgusting pos

  3. Patrick Butler says:

    Actually there is no punishment severe enough for this asswipe!

    • Linda Hilty-Tuttle says:

      You are right about that, Patrick!!!

      Being MURDERED, just because you’re old, is a sin of enormous magnitude! AGREE with ALL others comments!

  4. 7 years prison time isn’t enough time for someone this cruel as if being an old animal isn’t hard enough. I say tape his mouth shut then put him in a plastic bag & let him sit in prison for 7 years so he can think about his actions!!! We don’t need people like this living near our children or animals‼️‼️‼️

  5. Animals all across the USA are being hurt. We always hear about the crime and the dirt bags that do these things usually get off with a slap on the wrist. We have space in prison for these people. The judicial system is broken. Murders get 5 or 10 years, so what can a animal abuser expect ,maybe a couple of days and maybe a few months of probation. It’s a shame that crime has very little payback.

    Beautiful dog!! Dogs have such a big heart and love us unconditionally. They don’t ask for much. They are beautiful creatures. All they want is to be loved. The man who did this to this beautiful dog deserves to spend the rest of his life in prison since the same can’t be done to him because GOD wouldn’t want us to get revenge. Animals are like our fur babies to a lot of us out there. I pray this poor baby finds peace as he runs free in doggie heaven with his doggie wings. Bless you little boy!!

  7. Kill fucking humans. No jail, just kill the fuckers

    Take this vile POS and bind him tightly. Weighted down with heavy weights .. drop him in the ocean. Let the fish feed on him after he drowns

  9. Elaine Smith says:

    THIS POS NEEDS TO BE GAGGED AND TAPED UP AND LEFT TO ROT, TO DIE SLOWLY AND HORRIBLY IS JUSTICE FOR ANIMAL ABUSERS. THE LAW IS TOO SOFT ON WALKING EXCREMENT LIKE THIS

  10. Hope the DA’s office has the spine and brass balls to put the blow torch to that POS scum bag.

  11. What is wrong with this bastard Hilyard? Please do the very same to tbis evil SOB after suing him penniless.

  12. CAPITAL PUNISHMENT FOR THIS LESS THAN A HUMAN BEING!!!! TAPE HIS MOUTH SHUT LEAVE HIM TO DIE AND MAY HE BURN IN HELL!!!!!!!

  13. We who genuinely love our dogs/cats understand how even more precious the time becomes with them as they get older. Many of us would give anything to have our dog/cat with us for 17 years. There is seriously something wrong with a person who could tape their dog’s mouth shut and discard the dog where it couldn’t be saved to die alone. That is an evil act and an evil person who is a danger to ALL animals, who knows how many other animal victims there are because of this filthy piece of garbage. I hope the authorities for once charge this subhuman after he is no doubt found guilty and sentence him to the maximum of prison time and place his name on the DO NOT ALLOW YO ADOPT OR BUY animals list.

  14. I really hope this trash gets what he deserves. Like being smothered to death like he did his pet with its own bed. This piece of garbage does to be removed from the mortal coil before harming others.

  15. I hope you die a horrible death just like your dog!!!

  16. Horrific! Send him to a hard labor camp in Siberia. How could any human treat an old precious pet let me that. Dump him off the n the Florida swamps.

  17. This is a sadistic and monstrous crime of unfathomable, intentional cruelty. Hilyard must be punished to the most severe extent allowable by law and NEVER, EVER allowed contact with companion or other nonhuman animals again. EVER.

    You Fkn scumbag, low-life Maggot…. I ask God why? Why did he ever allow a pc of shit like yourself to ever have a beautiful dog like this and then why allow you to do something like this to that poor dog…. can you imagine the agony and fear and not knowing why this was happening to him in his final moments!! I Fkn want to meet you – I want to bring you to a warehouse and administer unimaginable pain to you that you Fkn beg me to end your miserable life! I only hope that if there is a God – he will never forget what you did to this Poor Dog and condemn you to Fkn Hell – You Fkn Cockroach ….

  19. Find this piece of garbage, tape him up, tgen leave him in the middle of the desert to die.
