Petition: Don’t let Missy the drowned dog die in vain.

There is just no justification drowning your dog in a rucksack.  Yet when one Norwich, UK man learned of looming veterinarian bills for his dog Missy he did the unthinkable. He stuffed his dog in a rucksack with only your head sticking out of the bag and tossed her into the river.
