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. How does anyone live with themselves after doing such horrific things to a living creature?!

  2. Kenneth Harwick needs to rot in jail if any of these allegations are found to be true. In addition and most importantly, BAN HIM FOR LIFE FROM EVER OWNING OR EVEN HAVING AN ANIMAL IN HIS POSSESSION!

  3. Jail is where any abuser belongs!

  4. JAIL IS TOO GOOD FOR THIS BASTARD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I want to make a beautiful cake for this man frosted with Rat Poison…

  6. Why don’t we just give Harwick a Mickey Fin with rat poison in it. That won’t be making it even, since that innocent dog had more of the right to live than that POS Harwick.

  7. Euthanize this monster. He admitted that he did this. All these monsters should suffer exactly the same way that their victims did. JUSTICE

  8. He needs to pay for his extreme cruelty! To starve, poison, shoot this poor furbaby, then make him suffer till he died. RIP sweet baby, fly high. Please don’t let this sorry piece of 💩 get away with murdering this helpless dog!

  9. After all the abuse this poor dog suffered, they found rat poison in his system. Do you know how an animal suffers after ingesting any kind of poison? They suffer in complete agony for hours and hours before they suffering and pain finally end in death.
    This bastard, who we all know did this dirty deed, needs to feel the same pain and suffer a lot longer than that poor dog.
    Is it any wonder I’d rather spend time with my animals instead of people?
    Hope you are enjoying your much better surroundings poor fur angel, no more suffering. R.I.P.

    I hope this dirty bastard dies and rots in hell

    Local officials animal control must let all people know that injured ill pets that a person cannot take care of can relinquesh there pets/animals to animal control or veterinarians. Post signs of people & dog with snow & empty water or food bowl. And a foto of cat dog with litters & empty bowls& a heart that is cracked to show too many litters and showing coin & dollar bills, veterinarian, shots for vaccinations, someone walking animal, picking up dog cat feces(that anumals need to be taKen care of n loved, showing its expensive to take care of animals, that they give unconditional love. That as humans we have to be responsible as owners.

  12. This vile dog killing scumbag must have the death penalty implemented. A slow and agonising de3ath is essential for this evil cretin. Prison is not adequate!

  13. So many human monsters that need their natural oxygen supply removed…

  14. Paula Long says:

    They know who these sickos Carey, they better charge these people. If owners refuse to provide care then animal control should be able to remove them. I just wonder if animal control knew about this and did nothing and in that the case they are just as guilty for this poor babies pain..

  15. EVIL POS!!!!! Needs to be tortured “DAILY”
    For the rest of his worthless life

  16. Nadine Brundige says:

    Low life demented piece of shit needs jail time for horrific animal cruelty.That poor dog did not have to die like that . If you can’t take care of your pet don’t get one.

  17. This man needs serious punishment and jail time. And he should never be allowed to own any type of pet. How could anyone poison them shot their dog. He must pay.

  18. That Rat!!! should be given some rat poison, & shot in the head & be left to die!!!

  19. Shoot the mother FUCKER! rid the word of a killer.

  20. What a poor excuse of a human being. Just a low down dirty rat the world would be better off without!
