Great Dane Allegedly Left With Broken Leg and No Medical Care Deserves Justice

Target: Madison County, Illinois Assistant State Attorney Katie Warren

Goal: Give man prison sentence for allegedly fracturing dog’s leg purposely.

A Great Dane suffered because his owner allegedly broke his back right leg on purpose in January, and failed to get the animal veterinary care. Philip P. Riley was just charged with the crime. He needs to be given a prison sentence to hopefully prevent another similar tragedy from occurring if it is found he committed this heartless act.

Riley was charged with violating the Humane Care for Animals Act and with a count of aggravated animal cruelty. He could spend three years in prison if he is found guilty of this unthinkable act of animal abuse.

Dogs that have been abused by previous owners can show aggression toward other people as well as with other dogs. This can unfortunately lead to the dog eventually being euthanized. Sign this petition to demand Riley not only be put behind bars, but to also insist authorities confiscate his dog if they have not done so already.


Dear Assistant State Attorney Warren,

Philip P. Riley was recently charged for allegedly fracturing his dog’s back right leg and not finding a veterinarian to fix the issue. He needs to be justly punished under the law if it is discovered he purposefully hurt this animal, to better ensure it will not happen again.

Riley was charged with aggravated cruelty to animals, which is considered a felony. He was also charged with one count of breaking the Humane Care for Animals Act, a misdemeanor in the state of Illinois.

The animal in question may be fearful of a new, future owner. This Great Dane may also later display aggressive behaviors toward other animals or people, possibly leading to a new owner either returning the dog to a shelter, or putting the animal to sleep. For these reasons, we demand you seek a tough legal sentence for Riley and that you also tell the courts he should not get his dog back or further be allowed to be around other animals, if he is found guilty of this thoughtless offense.

    This freaking piece of filth deserves to have both his legs broken and left to suffer!! Throw his ugly ass in jail for the rest of his miserable life.

  4. I agree with your comment Jaime Perez.

    “This freaking piece of filth deserves to have both his legs broken and left to suffer!! Throw his ugly ass in jail for the rest of his miserable life”.

    • No jail, it costs taxpayers, he needs A Red Hot Poker where the sun doesn’t shine and then left to rot

  5. If I could get to this psychopathic animal torturing monster from hell Philip P. Riley I would eradicate this pos from the planet before this monster deliberatly tortures another precious and innocent animal. This monster is as guilty as stated.
    I pray the precious and innocent Great Dane is adopted into an animal loving family and is not put to sleep. Why should this precious soul have his or her life taken away because of this monster bastard? It gives me the shits when the comment “if he is found guilty of this thoughtless offense” when you know this monster is definately guilty. So get rid of this pos from the planet.

    I say break every bone in this piece of shit’s body! And absolutely NO PAIN MEDICATION EITHER! FUCKIN ASSHOLE!!!!

  7. All animal abusers globally must have the mandatory death penalty implemented and nothing less.

  8. A 20 year sentence would be a great start for all that he did, but also break his leg and give him no medical attn for the same amount of time the dog had his leg broken w/o care. The dog is now safe.
