Dog Who Reportedly Had Tail Cut Off With Knife Needs Justice

Target: Chad M. Salsman, Bradford County, PA, District Attorney

Goal: Prosecute man who allegedly cut dog’s tail off and left the animal to suffer.

A Pennsylvania man allegedly cut his pet dog’s tail off with a knife and then refused to take the suffering animal to the vet. Instead, he reportedly gave the dog Tylenol and let the wound heal improperly, exposing the innocent animal to infection and disease. Sign the petition to demand justice.

Authorities were called to the home of Richard Armitage after he was reportedly seen outside, swinging a small, white dog violently around his head by the harness. When police responded, they apparently discovered the dog’s unhealed wound. Armitage allegedly admitted to cutting the dog’s tail off with a knife, giving the animal Tylenol, and then moving on as if nothing had happened.

Now in the care of the Bradford County Humane Society, the innocent dog will require surgery to heal his wound. Armitage, meanwhile, has been charged with animal cruelty. Sign the petition to demand that, if these accusations prove true, Armitage be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.


Dear District Attorney Salsman,

County resident Richard Armitage has been accused of horrific animal cruelty after reportedly slicing the tail off his pet dog and neglecting to take the injured animal to the vet. Authorities only discovered this alleged abuse after they were called to Armitage’s home after reports of more violence against the animal.

If these accusations are true, Armitage is a danger to animals and society as a whole. I ask that he be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law so that the innocent dog so brutally abused finally receives justice.

    Sick, demented asshole needs time in the nearest mental institution.This piece of shit should never be allowed to own any animal. Hope the scum doesn’t have any kids.

    • This POS doesn’t need a mental institution, he needs his penis cut off with a dull knife & only given Tylenol & no medical follow up. Oh and be sure to place a collar around his neck & swing him around as he did the dog. His face plastered on a bill board with what he did would be nice too! I hope the authorities make him pay the vet bills.

  2. Prosecute this monster POS animal abuser to the fullest extent. He didn’t seem to blink an eye at the suffering he had caused this poor pup.

  3. Ok !! Enough of this bullshit!! Cut this assholes balls off with the same knife.. give him Tylenol and-walk away!!
    Give him the same surgery!!! MF!!!

  4. Please!! Put this awful man in jail! This is horrible!! He’s an abuser.

  5. This evil/cruel abuser killer needs to have his favorite body part cut off – no tylenol – NOTHING. Then he needs to lose fingers and toes. HE MUST BE REMOVED FROM SOCITY PERMANENTLY. HE IS A MENACE TO HUMANS AND ANIMALS ALIKE. SOLITARY WOULD BE A GREAT PLACE FOR HIM FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE. IN MY OPINION

  6. Jeannette O’Hara says:

    It’s hard to live knowing people- Monsters- like this exist. It makes me sick. Please prosecute as if he did it to a person. Sparing nothing. The harshest sentence is needed!!

  7. Maria Bertrand says:

    This evil monster NEEDS TO BE BEHIND BARS! AND NOW! Lawmakers please do your job and protect other animals and give this sweet innocent puppy his JUSTICE!!

    I would prefer that he get chopped up into little pieces!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    God’s speed for a full recovery and happy safe forever home …as you deserve little one.

    That bastard IS guilty. He admitted to cutting the poor dog’s tail off. It was also witnessed him swinging the dog around by his harness over his head. That bastard deserves to be executed. Since that won’t happen, he must serve 10 years in prison (in solitary confinement) with no early parole, pay a $500,000 fine, & be banned for life of owning or going near any animals ever again. It should be law (anywhere in the world) that a person that’s caught doing animal cruelty, torture, neglect, abandonment, beastiality automatically gets executed

  9. This man is a danger, not just to animals…but if he was ok with cutting off a dogs tail, his next step will be people. Count on it. Do not let him off with a slap on the wrist! He needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law…and most importantly…BAN HIM FROM EVER HAVING CONTACT WITH ANY ANIMAL FOR LIFE. *MUST REMAIN AT LEAST 10 feet from all animals. Special place in hell for people like him.

    Here we go just one more grade a certifiable douchebag! This idiot is nothing more than an oxygen thief. Animal abusers need 10X the abuse given back to them! NEVER ALLOW this as jack to own, poses or go near any animal again. Jail him and implement court fees, fines all vet bills, police and personnel costs before he can get out of jail and make sure everyone in there knows exactly what he’s done, maybe then u might get some sort of justice!

  11. I know one really good way to stop a lot of this animal abuse, if we would just adopt some of the laws that they have in Arabia they still perform publicly beheadings behandings….you do something like steal or torture an animal among other crimes.. they will cut your hands off maybe your fingers but you won’t be able to torture an animal anymore after that and then we won’t need to put them in jail and save our taxpayers money.

    Honestly, it’s a win-win situation.

  12. Put this Bastard in prison. A Fuk…. Monster!!!!!

  13. Tammy Rossetti says:

    Holy shit! This actually made my stomach turn. Are we actually getting more vile as a species or am I just seeing too much because of social media?

  14. I don’t know what causes people to be so cruel to innocent animals but I do know there are a lot of them out there. As long as we have weak laws for abusers they will just keep on doing their evil deeds with little repercussions. Make this POS pay for hurting this little dog!

  15. Stupid bastard!!!! He thinks it’s fun to have something cut off .. How about cut his balls & dick OFF!!!!!
    Worthless assholes like him should NOT be allowed to reproduce … EVER

  16. Allison Winters says:

    I’m so sick and tired of hearing about these disgusting POS abusing animals and then getting a slap on the wrist only to do it again!! The harshest punishment should be given and I only wish we could do to them what they did to the innocent animal.

  17. Prosecute this disgusting piece of shit to the full extent of the law. He did admit that he cut the tail off and gave him Tylenol. And then swung the poor little dog around violently on his harness. What is there to prove he admitted it. He needs to be prosecuted and see that he doesn’t get this sweet little dog back and he doesn’t touch another animal again

  18. Raymond Stevens says:

    The scumbag who did this should have his dick chopped off.

  19. This idiot asshole moron should have his hand cut off. . . What a heartless moron scumbag he is. Is this man mentally deranged?? He should not ever be allowed to own or be around another animal again in his pitiful waste of air and space lifetime. What he did to this poor helpless dog is inexcusable and UNACCEPTABLE. He needs to be punished SEVERELY for the pain, suffering and TRAUMA he caused this poor dog.
