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]

    Considering the dog couldn’t even open his mouth to pant & cool down,the degenerate asshole owners are lucky they didn’t bloody kill him.

  2. Stupid clueless or mean, or both, it doesn’t matter. Arrest these subhumans, throw in prison for 3-5 years. When they are released force them to donate for life to an animal rescue organization!

  3. Some jerk did this to a dog and left him in a field to die. Luckily he was found by a passer-by walking his own dog. That was several years ago. Dog still has the mark around the snout from the tape (that’s how tight he wrapped the tape). He is the mascot for the humane society, and icon for combating animal cruelty. When I saw this poor pup’s snout taped, it reminded me of Justice, whom humane society named. Guy was sentenced to 2 years, which wasn’t enough for the pain and suffering he caused. This couple needs to be charged and should never be allowed to have another pet. So cruel!

    • There is a great chance that cretin got a taste of what he deserved without vaseline. The sentence should have been 25 years. 1000000000000%

    IMMEDIATELY SEIZE ALL ANIMALS in their possession. Prosecute to the fullest extent of the law for egregious animal abuse. BAN them from ever purchasing, owning, caring for or working with any animals ever again!

  5. A to the J says:

    These fucking piece of shit women would be hung from a tree where I come from. Give them the maximum punishment.

    • Lee County Florida is among the toughest if not the toughest county in Florida with respect to crimes against animals. All other counties that are not as tough as the toughest county in FL, need to follow suit!

  6. Delores Rich says:

    THIS IS HORRIFIC! You have the INNOCENT animals who suffered at the hands of these IGNORANT SB MONSTERS! Now put them in prison to rot w/their mouth taped shut. Karma will he knocking!👺

  7. Aprille Gilmore says:

    Thank you to the officer who arrested them. That rarely happens. Please procecute and punish the criminals to the fullest extent of the law. There is zero point of even pretending we have cruelty laws if they are not routinely enforced. These people should absolutely never be allowed to have animals again.

    • You are right, it hardly happens, esp in FL. But they were in Lee County and they have a 0 tolerance for crimes against animals. Maybe I should move there or make Central FL and the rest of FL better. I am trying to get a constitutional amendment in FL to fund animal police units across all counties in FL.

    IM GOING TO FB SEARCH FOR THESE 2 POS SCUM BAG LOW LIFE LOSERS WHEN I GET HOME , I CAN JUST IMAGINE WHAT UGLY SKANKS THEY LOOK LIKE !! AND THEN IM CALLING THE POLICE TO FIND OUT WHY THEY GOT ONE DOG BACK !!!!! THIS IS INSANITY SO WHAT THEY ARE ONLY CAPABLE OF EXTREME CRUELTY TO ONLY ONE DOG ?? WHEN ARE THESE IMBECILES IN AUTHORITY GOING TO WAKE UP

  9. Take these cowardly bastards and dump them in a gator pitt to be eaten alive. DINT TAPE THEIR MOUTH SHUT—-LET THEM SCREAM BLOODY MURDER!! Save taxpayers dollars and feed the wildlife. Then justice would be served!!
    If they do this to a dog, what would they do to a child!

  10. Stephanie Geyser says:

    I wonder if these 2 pieces of sub-human garbage ever (God forbid!) breed with each other, if this is how they also will treat their unfortunately offspring, every time they go shopping?

  11. Lydia Boerio says:

    These two need to be held accountable for their actions. They should never be allowed to have any pet…ever.

  12. Linda Cummings says:

    Look at how tight the assholes tied that tape around the dogs nose! I am surprised they did not kill him. This is clearly torture.

  13. Idiots. Morons. Ignorant bustards. BAN the brainless, thoughtless ,cruel that’s from ever having an animal again.

  14. Tape their mouths and lock them is a car! Some people should not own pets because they are too stupid and have no common sense.

  15. Idiots like these owners need the same done to them. Tape their yaps shut .. bind them so they can’t move. But instead of locking them just inside the car. LOCK THEM IN THE TRUNK!!!!

  16. Rhonda Jones says:

    This is totally animal abuse and these people should not be allowed to keep their dogs or own any pets. Inhumane and cruel is what this is period. Laws need to be harsher on people like this or they will never learn.

  17. I can’t believe that they could do this. I believe they should get jail time and to have to work in a rescue so maybe it will open their eyes to what they did! Give them the maximum penalty!!

  18. I agree with all the other comments. These bastards shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near animals, and they should have the same done to them. Evil lowlife psychopaths.

    • Joyce O'Malley says:

      I agree!! Animal abusers are coming out of the woodwork during this pandemic – they were always hiding in the shadows!!
      PACT ACT
      PROSECUTE
      FINE
      PRISON!!

  19. SHOVE A ROLL OF DUCT TAPE UP THAT CUNT’S TWAT, AND TAPE A WHOLE ROLL OF DUCT TAPE AROUND THAT PRICK’S DICK, UNTIL IT FALLS OFF!!! NOW WAIT A MINUTE, THAT FUCKER IS NO MAN, SO HE DOESN’T HAVE A DICK!!! 💪🏼🇺🇸 RENEE CARIGLIA

  20. I dare these severe dog abusing scumbags to meet me face to face,in real life!! OH YESS!!!!!
