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.

  1. Make animal abuse laws stronger and prosecute anyone who hurts or kills an animal. No slaps on the wrist, but actual punishment. An eye for an eye? These helpless animals can’t protect themselves and animal cruelty seems to be everywhere. Anyone abusing an animal should be jailed immediately and never be around any animal again.

      Couldn’t agree with you more. Its time animal abusers get the harshest punishment, it says a lot about the mentality of anyone who can harm or torture an innocent animal that cannot defend itself. Animals need protection from these evil morons who will no doubt carry on the abuse. These predators prey on innocent and vulnerable animals and its a well known fact they go on to target children and others in society.

  2. There are no laws to protect these animals. These subhumans get a slap on the wrist and go on with their miserable lives. Really tired of seeing all these evil acts with no justice. When is something going to be done to protect these poor animals, and mete out the proper punishment to these people? Don’t hold your breath! Sad and pathetic.😢

  3. Cut off part of the scumbags anatomy.

  4. Someone please cut off the cunt’s penis and let him bled to death. The monster doesn’t deserves any better.

    • Agree totally with that. So that monster will know how painful it can be. An eye for an eye. This is the only way to make these assholes heartless idiots understand.

    I hope this little d#ck coward gets thrown in jail indefinitely.. This sociopath is a serial killer in the making and does not belong in society ..

  6. Pamela Chattergoon says:

    Need to kill these fuckers.

  7. Do not give this pooch back to this asshole dirtbag! At the least this animal needs some love. Not to be owned by sadistic, pathetic touchhole!!

  8. The only way to guarantee that this mother-fucker won’t do this again to another dog is to cut his throat and let him bleed out. That would pretty much guarantee that he won’t do it again. But, it won’t happen. Too many bleeding hearts out there that would whine their lungs out if someone was to actually put this piece of shit under the ground

  9. Raynesha McGhee-Reed says:

    This is Such Horrific Animal cruelty & This Sadistic POS needs 2 be Cut in Half 2 death!!!!

  10. Sent the culprits to jail and remove some of their parts with a knife and no anethetic

  11. Charged with ANIMAL CRUELTY? How about KILLER? Do you actually think he wasn’t trying to end this Dogs life by cutting off the tail and swinging it around violently?!? The Dog could have bled out instantly. I can only imagine what kind of abuse this Dog had gone through before this incident. Thank God it was rescued. It was just pure evil at work. ENFORCE LAWS THAT PUNISH THOSE WITH THESE HORRIC CRIMES THIS IS ENOUGH!!!!!

  12. Cut this stupid man’s leg off with dull blunt knife and rend him ABSOLUTELY NO MEDICAL ATTENTION anywhere he goes!!!

  13. Thank goodness this poor dog was rescued. I hate these heartless monsters who hurt their own pets! This guy should have a part of his body cut off with a knife! I agree with an eye for an eye.

  14. Mayra Lazala-Stock says:

    Cut off his penis and feed it the dog. This psycho needs to be in jail. Who is going to be next, a child or perhaps another animal…🤬🤬

  15. Have I mentioned that I hate people?

  16. Jaime Perez says:

    This freaking POS needs to have his head cut off! How cruel can a person be? I hope the poor baby heals soon and goes to a good loving home.

  17. Richard Armitage needs to be held accountable for his crude, cruel actions if found to be guilty.

  18. Chad – I am so sick and tired of signing these animal cruelty Petitions. It seems like the perpetrators who are committing these crimes against the Animal Kingdom are not prosecuted to the fullest extent allowed under the law, but rather are given a slap on the hand and sent on their way. For God’s sake, show the world that Bradford County WILL NOT TOLERATE animal abuse and murder. Send this asshole to prison! Please!

  19. Janet Garraghan says:

    What a despicable, evil monster! This is an utter abomination! Do not let him get away with this! Cruel behaviour must not be tolerated, it must be stopped! I despair of the human race, I truly do!
