Emaciated Dog Apparently Shot, Abandoned, and Left to Die Deserves Justice

Target: State Attorney of the 12th Judicial Circuit of Manatee, Sarasota Ed Brodsky

Goal: Justly punish man who reportedly shot sick dog and left animal to die in pain.

An extremely thin dog was allegedly found dead outside by authorities. Police stated that the animal was shot, and arrested Kenneth Harwick shortly afterwards. He needs to receive a prison sentence and no longer be allowed to have pets if these allegations are found to be true.

Reports indicate that neighbors asked Harwick why his dog was so thin and were told that the animal had eaten some chicken bones. Although they asked him if they could take his pet to see a veterinarian, Harwick allegedly said that he would not pay for medical expenses and further stated he would handle the situation.

When questioned about the incident, Harwick reportedly admitted to the crime and was immediately arrested on aggravated animal cruelty charges. A necropsy report further indicated that rat poison was found inside the dog’s system. Sign this petition to demand Harwick receive a prison sentence and be banned from owning animals if it is found he committed this cruel act.


Dear State Attorney Brodsky,

Kenneth Harwick was arrested after he reportedly shot his dog outdoors and left the animal to suffer and die. He needs to spend time in prison, and he should not be allowed to be around other animals if he is found guilty, to better ensure other dogs will not be harmed.

According to reports, neighbors approached Harwick about the health of his dog after seeing that the animal was very thin. Harwick allegedly told them that the dog did not feel well as a result of eating chicken bones. When others offered to take the pet to see a veterinarian, they were reportedly told he would take care of the problem himself and that he would not pay for the dog to be seen by a professional.

Authorities allegedly later heard a gunshot while talking to a witness and found the dog deceased in the nearby area. Harwick reportedly admitted to shooting the animal. Rat poison was also said to be found inside the body. For these reasons, I demand you seek a strict legal sentence for Harwick and that you also tell the courts that anyone who refuses to seek proper veterinary care for their pets should not be legally allowed to have them.

  1. Kenneth Harwick’s sentence should be to feed him rat poison and let him suffer the same as this dog.

  2. Bette Lazzaro says:

    Requires the stiffest sentence allowed by law.

  3. Eye for an eye! How cruel he was to this precious dog.


  5. Karen Jenkins says:

    Make an example out of him!

    How many other pets are currently being abused, tortured, beaten or starved right now or on the verge?

    Why can’t any laws befitting for the crime be passed? What’s the hold up?

    Until America enacts hard laws with mandatory prison sentences, lifetime ban of ever having any type of animal domesticated or not and worldwide database registry, this vicious cycle will continue.

    Take action NOW!!!

  6. Wayne LaBeaud says:

    For a pos like this !!!! Starving the dog..then poisoning him and then shooting the poor baby I’d use a special treatment!!
    M E D I E V A L !!!!
    IMPALE HIM !!!
    A round nose pole up his rectum , stand it upright and let him slowly defend on the pole !!!

  7. Animal loving Neighbors or those nearby kenneth harwick should take matters into their own hands and do to Kenneth Harwick what he truly deserves because scum like kenneth harwick have no place in this world and Florida laws towards animal abuse are pathetically week like a third world country!

  8. This behavior leads to harming humans! Prosecute the pos to the fullest extent of the law and should NEVER EVER be allowed to own any type of animal again!!

  9. Put this guy in jail and never let him have an animal again. He is violent.

  10. As though starving to death isn’t painful enough, this depraved loser shot his dog as well? Is this considered a felony? This troglodyte needs to spend his pathetic life behind bars ( and they should consider starving him to death).

  11. Anne-Mari Gavin says:


  12. People that fo these horrible things to animals need to be shot, no big loss.

  13. Gavin smith says:

    Since we are living in end times my prayer for this monster is that he receive the judge the deserves from God- eternity in the pit of fire. He can burn forever.

  14. Mineera otaibi says:

    Since we are living in end times my prayer for this monster is that he receive the judgement he deserves from God- eternity in the pit of fire. He can burn forever. I hope he enjoys

  15. Jacqueline says:

    Remove this THING from the earth. Due in Agony!!
    The neighbors should have called the Police!!

  16. Do the same damn thing back to the POS human who did this!!!!

  17. This cruel evil disgusting worthless monster needs to pay dearly with his useless life, i absolutely agree with those comments , i want him to suffer agonizing pain, stave him, may God have NO MERCY on his evil soul.

  18. Joy Napier says:

    Abusers should face capital punishment. There’s simply zero excuse for inflicting diabolical nefarious actions upon another soul.

  19. Mr. Brodsky, please be a mensch. Seek the max. What this subhuman sociopath deserves is to be chained up outside, fed 500 grams of dog feces once a day and 500 ml of water until his BMI gets down to 15. Then he should be shot by the poorest marksman of the Sarasota PD and left to bleed to death.

  20. Kenneth Harwick is a depraved subhuman who should spend the rest of his days languishing in prison for the vile torture and murder of this poor, innocent dog. A disgrace to humanity.
