Puppy Reportedly Locked in Car With Mouth Taped Shut While Owners Went Shopping Deserves Justice

Target: Florida State Attorney of the Twentieth Judicial Circuit, Amira D. Fox

Goal: Justly punish people who reportedly left puppy inside car with mouth taped shut while they went shopping at Walmart.

A 9-week-old great Pyrenees was allegedly rescued after being found inside a car with the animal’s mouth taped shut. Jaelen Anthony Barge and Allison Marie Sweck were later arrested for the reported incident. They need to receive a harsh legal sentence and not be allowed to have pets if these allegations are found to be true.

According to reports, a training lead had been taped around the puppy’s mouth for the purpose of making sure no biting took place. However, these types of leads are specifically designed to keep an animal from pulling during a walk, and not to be employed in the way it was allegedly used. Witnesses called police after they reportedly noticed mucus profusely dripping from the dog’s nose and mouth. It was also said that there was a second dog in the vehicle. Someone allegedly tried to give them water. However, Sweck reportedly told witnesses to get away from her pets.

The suspects were both arrested for animal cruelty, and the puppy is now in the care of Lee County Domestic Animal Services. It is not known what happened to the other dog. Sign this petition to demand Sweck and Barge receive a prison sentence and to further insist they have both animals taken away if they are found guilty of this crime.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear State Attorney Fox,

Jaelen Anthony Barge and Allison Marie Sweck were arrested for allegedly taping their puppy’s mouth shut and leaving the animal inside the car while they went to Walmart. It is important that they be required to spend time in prison and be banned from having pets if they are found guilty, to better ensure other animals will not endure the same fate.

Authorities were called after witnesses stated that the puppy’s jaws were taped so tightly, mucus was dripping nonstop from the nose and mouth. Police brought the puppy to Lee County Domestic Animal Services. They stated that the owners had taped a training lead around the mouth to keep the animal from biting, even though these types of leads should only be used to hinder an animal from pulling on a walk. Another dog was also allegedly found inside the car, but it is not known whether this animal was taken by authorities or was possibly released to another family member.

For these reasons, we demand you seek a prison sentence for Barge and Sweck if it is discovered they committed this crime and that you further tell the courts that if they think taping a puppy’s mouth shut is a proper training method, they should not be allowed to have pets.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  3. Sadly they will be reproducing creating more idiots like themselves. They should be punished and banned from ever owning another animal. There should be a national Do Not Adopt list that includes anyone found guilty of animal cruelty, neglect, torture, murder.

  4. These vile animal abusing scumbags musty be banned from ever owning an animal and must also have a 50 year non release prison sentence. These evil cretins must pay BIGTIME!

  5. please i beg you do not just slap them on the wrist they should not have a pet if they are going to treat them this way. this shows just what kind of idiots they are if they think this is ok this is a small defenseless puppy it makes me wonder if they had a kid would they be stupid enough to do this to a child. please i beg you judge do not let them get away with this. i have pets and do not take them out and do something like this … this is appalling and i am being nice when i say that, make them do dirty work like shoveling poop something they could not stand to be around to show that they do not need a pet. and not for one day make them do it for a month please and again i am being nice even though if no one had found this precious baby he would /might have died. make them suffer the way they did this puppy give them a fine also there is a law called animal cruelty … please charge them with all you are able to and a very stiff fine. i wish they could be sent to the tent prison for hard labor i think in arizona that would be the ideal place for them …

  6. OH MY WORD WHAT KIND OF EVIL `HUMAN` DOES THIS. ITS A VERY GOOD JOB I WAS NOT THERE WHEN THEY RETURNED TO THE CAR AS THEY WOULD BE NEEDING TREATMENT, AFTER THEY SUFFERED THE SAME ABUSIVE CRUELTY THEY DID TO THIS POOR LITTLE SOUL.

    NASTY, WICKED PIECE OF WORK. THEY SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED NEAR ANOTHER ANIMAL AGAIN. SHAME, SHAME, SHAME ON THEM, THEY ARE DISGUSTING PEOPLE, JUST DISGUSTING. PUNISH THEM.

  7. Take that dog away from those people IMMEDIATELY

  8. It is time to make this kind of abuse become Eye for an Eye. Tape their mouths and put them in the car for the same amount of time they left that poor dog in that car. May they rot in hell.
