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.


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.

    Only a stinking fucking n!&&er would do something like this. N!&&ers are the devil. Every time a cop kills a worthless fucking n!&&er I rejoice. Fuck this dirty subhuman @pe and the dirty coal burning white trash b!tch that would fuck a stinking n!&&er

    • I hope that God finds you and heals your sinful tongue, mind, and racist sadistic self. You are obviously pure evil. I hope that someone in your family loses their life at the hands of a cop so you can understand the pain people go through. I’m sorry you are racist, self righteous, and that God allowed you to be on this planet with such an evil heart and mind but I pray that he heals you.

      You stinking idiot. I happen to see their pictures after doing some more research. Guess what….. BRAINLESS MORON!!!

    • Irish Cornaire says:

      Ye need to be barred from commenting on this site and BTW it was a white woman as well yet ye said nothing about her probably because she is white,ye are a nasty subhuman.

    • Awwww you racist fuck. I hope your family dies and you have to bear the pain from that.

    • you need to be banned. you’re as stupid as the 2 assholes you are commenting about and have about as many brain(less)cells as they do. so fuck off moron!!!

    • You’re a Blatant Racist POS!! BURN with Satan.

    • Yes, some Black people are cruel to there pets. I don’t know if all are cruel but I know some are.

      • and a shit-ton of white people are also. so that’s a dumbass generalization, April. not to mention that half of that duo was white. you can’t fix stupid no matter what the color of their skin.

  2. What the hell is wrong with so called people. these idiots are NOT human

  3. Dogs need to pant to regulate their body temperature, to cool themselves. This could have been disastrous. I don’t know the laws, but I would think if someone has an animal removed due to neglect or abuse than ALL of their animals should be removed until the case is heard in court. I can’t imagine these folks are treating their other animals any better.

  4. Rose Coffey says:

    No more pets for these people. Hope they are that strict with their kids if they have any.

  5. These poor dogs need to be rescued asap and the monsters need to be in prison!

  6. Jail for these two pieces of human garbage… and tape their mouths shut!

  7. Debra Goldstein Lustig says:

    These worthless piece of shit scumbags should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and hopefully someone will tape their mouth and nose shut. They’re to rot in jail and never be permitted to own a pet.

  8. Owners should have their mouth tape in a car and thrown off a bridge

  9. Debra Broach says:

    It’s a crying shame those morons most likely will not get charged because the stupid laws are not strict enough and obviously don’t seem to care about prosecuting the crimes people do to animals. If I was to and could count the stars in the sky,that amount wouldn’t equal the amount of cruelty that humanity has done to animals and gotten away with it. If we actually had laws existing, that genuinely cared for prosecuting abusers and killers of animals, then things could change. As of now, only once in a blue moon, do these cruel, evil punks ever get the right punishment, they deserve.I blame the lawmakers, as much as the abusers themselves. Animals are and will continue to be at the mercy of heartless humans, because the laws will continue to allow these brainless twits to get away with their actions with no consequences. Each and every day you can read about an animal/several animals getting abused, neglected, hurt and killed. My heart goes out to them.

  10. These fucking pieces of shit should be tortured and murdered.

  11. They probably used the animals for dog shows. Obviously, the dog was purchased from a breeder or a puppy mill. This happens when people think animals are put on this earth for their sick amusement. Kick these asshole asses and prevent them from having any animals.

  12. Jail is no problem for bastards such as these.
    What they need is ‘vigilante’ treatment to teach the fuckers the error of their ways. The bitch of a woman seems just as bad as the scumbag of a man.
    I am thousands of miles away but hope that there are people who feel the same,(I know there are by reading the other comments) who can get together, find these shit-bags and dish out the punishment they deserve.

    Power to any group who feel strongly enough to thrash seven barrels of shit out of both these ‘sub-human tossers!!

  13. First & foremost thank God the puppy is okay. Human such as these do not deserve to have those dependent upon them in their care!!!!! These woman were obviously self serving & ignorant. Both animals & children do not belong in their selfish care!!!

  14. They need lifetime bans from owning any animal. This treatment was ignorant and cruel – unnecessarily so. Thank you.

  15. Dogs need to plant regularly to keep body temp. Cool. You cannot leave an animal with its mouth taped shut. Additionally, they left two dogs in an unattended car in warm weather. The temp. In a car even with slightly open or cracked windows can get many times hotter than outside and body temp. Can escalate very rapidly to dangerous even death producing levels. This has already happened and been in news repeatedly. The taping the mouth is illegal. The other dog must be removed from the home. They need to be prosecuted, punished with severe fine, other legal consequences , and banned from animal all future ownership.

  16. Carolyn Long says:

    Please put these monsters in jail and ban them from ever owning another animal.

  17. Jacqueline says:

    Why do idiots own dogs?? I would bite them , too!! But no one is in the car when this Abuse was caught??!!
    Furthermore, this. Pup is too young to be away from his mother and family and their socialization/behaviour. Poor pup!
    BAN from owning animals!!

  18. Nadine Brundige says:

    These two demented, low life brainless trash need jail time for animal cruelty. People who would commit such abuse need their animals taken away permanently. It’s a puppy and your dogs belong at home not taped in a car because you think your car will be destroyed. Evil, heartless scum.

  19. Jaelen Anthony Barge and Allison Marie Sweck Need to be locked up, fined heavily and most importantly…BAN THEM FOR LIFE FROM EVER OWNING OR HAVING ACCESS TO ANY ANIMAL. Any animals currently in their possession need to be removed immediately and given to a nokill rescue to find a loving forever home. If you keep ignoring animal abuse and let the perpetrators off with a slap on the wrist they will do it again and again.
