On July 17, 2018 Phillip Peng was arrested in Pahrump, Nevada possessing an endangered wild desert tortoise that he had mutilated and kept on a leash.

PENG used a power drill to make 2 holes through the shell of the tortoise where he attached a metal leash. The tortoise was also found in a deep container of water when PENG was arrested and the animal was fighting to avoid drowning. A tortoise does not swim. A herpatologists that examined the animal stated the drilling of holes into its shell would have caused extreme pain and suffering, hundreds of nerves connect to the shell. The shell had also been fractured. Further, part of the nails in its feet had been worn off from it trying to escape the cable tether. Peng stated he kept the tortoise in this condition for about four years.

Peng was also charged with Assault with a Deadly Weapon after allegedly pointing a gun at someones head, False Imprisonment and Carrying a Concealed weapon without a valid permit. It is well documented that those committing animal cruelty often escalate to committing crimes against humans.

The Nye County , Nevada Sheriff arrested PENG on two counts of felony animal cruelty. Subsequently, the Nye County, Nevada District Attorney dropped the one charge and only filed one misdemeanor charge of animal cruelty when the Nevada Animal Cruelty law applicaple substantiates a felony charge. (Case 18CRO3572)

It is just and proper when applying the Nevada State law in this case, (N.R.S. 574.100 (1) (a) 6 (a) that the Nye County Nevada District Attorney, Angela Bello and Christi Kindel, (filing Deputy) reconsider the charges and that the crimes committed by PENG be elevated to felony animal cruelty because they are, in fact, felony animal cruelty.

The crimes committed and the allegations and admissions made by PENG are torturous and outrageous.
The Nevada Desert Tortoise is a federally protected and endangered animal. The only way to prevent and reduce animal cruelty is to hold people properly accountable that commit it.

Petition update · “Willing to Die for America’s Liberty: Remembering LaVoy Finicum” · Change.org

Jul 29, 2018 — By Justin O Smith

Nothing in the pursuit of justice will ever restore the Finicum Family’s joy and happiness, that they experienced, with LaVoy Finicum home and alive with them, but Jeanette Finicum has pursued justice from the day her husband was so unnecessarily shot down on a lonely stretch of Highway 395, due to his role as one of the leaders of the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Preserve.

Her perseverance has resulted in the trial of Joseph Astarita, the FBI agent who fired the shots and ignited the hailstorm of bullets that ended LaVoy’s life, an ignoble act by the FBI and law enforcement who took part in the ambush, reminiscent of their action against Randy Weaver at Ruby Ridge.

His trial underway as of this July 24th, Astarita stands accused of falsely denying that he fired two shots at LaVoy, and he is charged with three counts of making false statements, by U.S. Attorney Billy Williams, and two counts of obstruction of justice. However, through scientific methods and aerial video of the ambush, it has been determined that it was Astarita who fired the first shots, as LaVoy exited his truck, something Astarita’s lawyers still refute. They state a belief that it was one of the Oregon Highway Patrol, who fired those first shots.

Robert LaVoy Finicum led a small band of protesters, including Cliven Bundy’s sons, Ryan and Ammon, American Patriots, who understood that the federal government and the Bureau of Land Management were consistently and constantly acquiring or simply taking land unconstitutionally, from farmers and ranchers across America. These men and women were standing firm for property rights under Our Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution, when they occupied Malheur, near Burns, Oregon, on January 2nd 2016 and began a stand off with the FBI and other law enforcement agencies, detailed by Les Zaitz in The Oregonian, that lasted forty-one days.

Since they had left the refuge before without incident, they expected this day, on January 26th 2016, to be no different. Imagine their shock, when the ambush and shooting occurred soon after LaVoy, Ryan and Ammon Bundy and Shawna Cox and Victoria Sharp, along with several others, started on their way to meet peacefully with Grant County Sheriff Glenn Palmer in John Day County. They had viewed their act of civil disobedience as a simple demonstration, much less severe and dangerous than other protests generated by Black Lives Matter and Occupy Wall Street, who were destroying entire cities without any real consequence from law enforcement.

After successfully evading the first road block, LaVoy told his friends [3 minutes 9 seconds mark], “Better understand how this thing is going to end. I’m going to be laying down on the ground with my blood on the street, or I’m going to see the sheriff. We got people en route.”

According to Robert Cary, Astarita’s lawyer, it was at this point that one Oregon State Patrolman radioed ahead to “Officer 1” and stated, “We’re going to have to shoot LaVoy Finicum.”

At the second roadblock, shots rained down on LaVoy’s truck before he ever stopped, forcing him to plow into a snow bank, allegedly just narrowly missing an FBI agent. And, as he jumped from the truck, to draw fire from his friends, with his hands raised above his head, two shots rang out, one shattering the driver’s side passenger window and striking Ryan Bundy in the shoulder.

In Shawna Cox’s video of the ambush, one hears the police telling him to “Get down” and LaVoy yelling, “You’re gonna have to shoot me”. Cox is heard asking, “Damn it, are they shooting him? … You assholes.”

The April 24th 2018 amendment [see page 51, number 269] to Jeanette Finicum’s current lawsuit for the wrongful death of her husband speaks volumes:

“The FBI, OSP and other defendants have publicly defended the deliberate ambush and murder of LaVoy on January 26, 2016, by alleging that after he exited the vehicle, and after he had been shot with at least five lethal rounds (as well as unknown number of non-lethal rounds), and after he repeatedly placed his hands on top of his head in a surrender position; that he appeared to be reaching into his jacket.”

One of the most damning points within Mrs Finicum’s complaint, found on page 33, highlights the fact that “at the time of the so-called ‘traffic stop’, there was still no sworn affidavit or probable cause statement or indictment against LaVoy or any of the passengers” — his friends accompanying him. Neither was there any arrest warrant for anyone involved.

Witnesses are on record noting that Astarita’s face was contorted after the shooting, and he was loud and “so amped up” that a supervisor had to calm him down. Assistant U.S. Attorney Gary Sussman also noted: “Only one guy [Astarita] stood in just the right spot. … Only one guy aimed right at Robert ‘LaVoy’ Finicum’s pickup [and] fired two shots in rapid succession.”

Astarita’s trial follows a growing resentment among American patriots for a federal bureaucracy that is out of control, even to the point of committing sedition, possibly treason, against a sitting U.S. president. It also doesn’t help that the FBI has a long history of arbitrary, tyrannical actions, detailed by Leah Sottile, such as witnessed in 1992, when an FBI team descended on Ruby Ridge and the home of Randy Weaver, a U.S. Army Special Forces Veteran, and a sniper murdered Vicki Weaver, as she stood in the cabin doorway holding the couple’s baby.

Just before stepping from LaVoy’s truck, hands raised, Ryan Bundy looked out and saw LaVoy lying in the snow. He turned towards Shawna Cox and Victoria Sharp and said, “LaVoy is dead.”

It doesn’t really matter, in the end, whose bullets killed LaVoy, because it shouldn’t have ended like this anyway. LaVoy had time and again stated a desire to make sure that the stand off ended peacefully, and up until the day of the ambush, there wasn’t any reason to believe that it wouldn’t, since LaVoy had been in constant contact with Sheriff Glenn Palmer, who was quite sympathetic to the cowboy’s cause. These men weren’t “anti-government”; they were anti-tyranny.

During the 2016 trial that acquitted Ammon Bundy and six other defendants, the FBI and Oregon Highway Patrol both testified they could not have identified specific legal reasons for the stop. This can only mean that had law enforcement not escalated the situation, LaVoy Finicum would have also been acquitted and alive and well at home with his family.

Robert Lavoy Finicum was willing to die for his ideas, the Constitution and freedom, and as we rise to a new sun each day, we must work in this America, the home of the brave and the land of the free, to ensure that not any future Democrat led administration, or any administration, can ever target conservative protests in such an egregious manner, impeding liberty each step of the way and executing us at will. The Finicum’s fight to hold the federal government accountable for its arrogant lawlessness, dishonesty and violence is America’s fight.

LaVoy was a good man, gunned down in cold blood. And whether or not any degree of justice comes out of this trial, God’s accounting awaits each of us one day. I pray to God justice be served and the Finicum Family finds peace of mind and heart.

Keep fighting for people power!

WAN’s Most Wanted; Help DonkeyLand Identify Perpetrator Who Shot & Wounded A Wild Burro With An Arrow In Riverside County, California – World Animal News

By WAN –
July 27, 2018
Photos from DonkeyLandA wild burro with who was shot and had an arrow dangling from its ear was gently captured in Riverside County, California.
Spirit, the injured animal, which has since been transported to SoCal Equine Hospital in Norco, California, was initially noticed on Wednesday of last week wandering around the Inland Empire’s Reche Canyon where hundreds of burros are known to gather. An animal services officer reportedly was able to take a photo that revealed that the arrow was gone, but sadly, the wounds it left behind remain.
“This is our third time trying to capture him; third time’s the charm,” noted non-profit organization DonkeyLand on its Facebook page. “We don’t know if a piece of the broken arrow is in his head or eardrum, we don’t know if he has an infection, we don’t know if he will require surgery, but he is in good hands with our surgeon Dr. Wan.”

“Three outraged animal lovers have come forward to offer a reward for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of the person or persons responsible for this horrible act of animal cruelty by shooting this innocent free-roaming wild burro with an arrow. Everybody needs a safe way to give information about something they know or even suspect without fear of retaliation for telling the truth,” the post continued stating that the generous reward is now at $3,000. “Help be the voice for these innocent animals today.”
Anyone with information regarding this case can send anonymous tips by emailing dhorn@riversidesheriff.org or calling Riverside County Department of Animal Services at (951) 358-7387.
Longtime animal advocate and former game show host Bob Barker recently donated to DonkeyLand to help it in its efforts to purchase 460 acres to be used for a sanctuary for the wild donkeys.
“Our wild burro emergency rescues involve safely capturing, providing onsite first-aid treatment, transporting to the hospital, rehabilitating, castrating the males rescued, then releasing the burros back to the wild with their family, as we never want to take away their freedom. Ultimately that is our goal but, in some cases, the ideal situation does not always happen, and the burro becomes a permanent resident of DonkeyLand,” the organization notes on its website explaining that most of their rescued donkeys have usually suffered terrible abuse by the hands of their cruel owners. “We are a forever home for those who can’t be released back to the wild because of a traumatic car accident, injury, illness or a special needs situation. They come to us traumatized, desperate and betrayed. With us, they find love, safety, compassion, dignity, trust, hope and a new beginning.”

Breaking News! At Least 3 Alleged Rhino Poachers Killed & Eaten By Pride Of Lions At Game Reserve In South Africa! – World Animal News

Breaking News! At Least 3 Alleged Rhino Poachers Killed & Eaten By Pride Of Lions At Game Reserve In South Africa!
By Lauren Lewis – July 5, 2018

Three alleged rhino poachers were killed by a pride of lions at a South African game reserve that is home to the Big Five of elephants, rhinos, buffalos, lions, and leopards.
According to Sibuya Game Reserve owner, Nick Fox, the remains of humans were discovered in the lion camp on Tuesday evening.
It is believed the perpetrators entered the reserve late Sunday night or early Monday morning.
“They were armed with, amongst other things, a high powered rifle with a silencer, an ax, wire cutters and had food supplies for a number of days; all the hallmarks of a gang intent on killing rhinos and removing their horns,” Fox explained on the reserve’s Facebook page noting that they first became aware there may be an issue when one of their anti-poaching dogs alerted her handler at about 4.30 am Monday morning that something was amiss.
It was dark and it is not unusual to hear a commotion coming from the lions at night, so the handler was not immediately concerned.
It was not until around 4.30 pm on Tuesday that one of the field guides on game drive alerted the Anti-Poaching Unit that there appeared to be human remains as well as other items in the immediate vicinity of the lions. Fox reported that they immediately alerted the Association of Eastern Cape Game Reserves’ Anti-Poaching Cluster and the Police.
“As it was already dark it was not possible to investigate the area until first light at which time we arranged for our vet to dart the entire pride of lions so that Police forensic teams assisted by our Anti-poaching unit could comb the immediate area for clues,” Fox stated. “At this stage, it is not clear exactly how many poachers were killed but the Police forensic team are continuing to investigate.”
Tragically, nine rhinos have reportedly already been killed by poachers on Eastern Cape reserves this year.
While any loss of life is sad, may this serve as a clear message to poachers to stay away!

Petition: These Men Forced Their Pit Bull to Tear Apart a Young Puppy and Filmed it. Demand Justice for Snoop.

by: Care2 Team
target: Pickens County Sheriff’s Office

77,911 SUPPORTERS – 80,000 GOAL

Chase Davidson had heard there was a dog fighting problem in Pickens County, Alabama, but he had no idea just how real it was. That was until his two dogs went missing but only one came back alive.

Chase’s dog Avery and her puppy Snoop disappeared last month. He was worried sick but luckily he was able to relocate Avery. However, Snoop was still nowhere to be found.

Snoop had been killed, and when Chase learned the gruesome details of his death he almost couldn’t believe it. Someone had approached him with a video that contained Snoops final moments. In it, you see Snoop attacked by a pit bull and dragged off by the neck. Shortly afterward you hear someone yell “Kill it, kill it, kill it,” then another person reaches in the video and shakes the puppy as to entice the pit bull to fight even harder.

The video was so disturbing that the local news decided not to include it in their story.

This kind of dog abuse unfortunately happens all over the country but Pickens County, with the new video evidence, has a chance to stomp it out within their borders. Police have launched an investigation into the incident but it is important to make sure this case remains a priority. Dog fighting is a scourge that needs to be rooted out and our voices can make a difference.

Please sign the petition and ask Pickens County Sheriff’s Office to continue their search for the perpetrators and work to end the dog fighting rings within their county.

Petition: This Zoogoer Caused the Death of a Rare Giraffe! Demand Justice

by: Care2 Team
target: Polícia de Segurança Pública

107,790 SUPPORTERS – 110,000 GOAL

Many people are unaware that the giraffe is in danger. According to a 2016 survey, there are less than 100,000 of the animals in the wild and over the last generation, almost 40% of the species has been lost. Many have called their slow disappearance, the “silent extinction.”

One of the rarer subspecies is the Angolan giraffe which is numbered at around 13,000. Until recently, there were 20 of these endangered giraffes in captivity, now there is one less.

Last week, an inconsiderate and irresponsible zoogoer caused the death of a famous Angolan giraffe when they lured the giraffe into a ditch that separates its enclosure from the public.

Despite there being a sign asking visitors not to feed the animals right next to the enclosure, the zoogoer offered the animal food and it fell into the ditch where it died.

What makes the news even worse, is that the 11-year-old giraffe gave birth late last year, and while her calf is eating on its own, it still was very much dependent on its mother.

Police have identified the visitor in question but as of yet, he has not been charged. That is not acceptable. This person should be held accountable for causing the death of one of these rare and beautiful creatures.

Please sign the petition and ask the Polícia de Segurança Pública, the Portuguese police force, to charge the culprit and make sure justice is served in the name of the giraffe.

69,924 SUPPORTERS – 70,000 GOAL
A missing foot, a broken and infected jaw, starving nearly to death, abandoned under a pile of trash.

That was how Frig and Freya, two German Shepherd puppy sisters, were found over Memorial Day weekend. Two days later, another puppy was found in the same location, also with a broken jaw.

The monsters who did this must be found before they can torture again. Sign now to urge the Oakland Police Department to do everything they can to find those responsible now!

Frig, whose paw was cut off, and Freya, whose jaw was broken, were treated at an animal hospital for their injuries. They have now been reunited, and all three puppies are under veterinary care.

Police in Oakland are already investigating the case, but they have not identified or located the perpetrators. We need to make sure that police find him for the safety of other animals and the public at large.

Animal abuse is not something to be taken lightly. According to HSUS, numerous studies show a link between animal abuse and violent behavior towards other humans. A 2001-2004 study by the Chicago Police Department showed that 65% of those arrested for animal abuse had been arrested for battery against another person. When examining seven school shootings that took place across the country between 1997 and 2001, another study showed that all involved boys who had previously committed acts of animal cruelty.

Please join in urging the Oakland Police Department to do everything they can to locate the horrific people responsible for hurting these puppies before they hurt again!

Petition: They Burned Three Puppies Alive

by: Care2 Team
target: Indian Government

64,701 SUPPORTERS – 65,000 GOAL
Eight teenagers in India dragged three puppies into a graveyard by their hind legs, dressed them in brush and sticks and then viciously burned them alive, and it’s all caught on video. As it stands now, the harshest punishment this kind of animal cruelty gets in India is 50 ruppees, the equivalent of hiring a rickshaw to get around town.

Sign the petition to demand harsher punishments for animal cruelty in India!

One poor puppy tries desperately to get away from the burning fire and a boy uses a pole to put it back in where it cries for minutes as it slowly dies. The boys laugh while the three puppies suffer their last few minutes alive.

The young boys committing this crime are all believed to be under 18 and therefore there is still time to get them the help they need. This kind of vile and malicious murder towards innocent beings can only be bred out of serious personal problems. But they will barely get a slap on the wrist for their indecency, let alone the psychological treatment necessary if they are to be prevented from killing again.

Not to mention, studies show that people who abuse and murder animals often go on to abuse and murder humans. It’s crucial that crimes against animals are fully investigated and dealt with from a community standpoint.

The price these boys will pay, if anything at all, is so little that it is absolutely not a deterrent for them or any other would-be abusers. There is a push from animal rights groups in the country to up the punishment for animal cruelty. Activists connect using the hashtag #NoMore50.

Sign the petition and tell India #NoMore50. Let’s ensure animal cruelty is actually taken as the serious heartless crime that it is.

Idaho teacher charged after feeding sick puppy to turtle in front of class

Preston,Idaho- and Eastern Ohio teacher accused of feeding a sick puppy to a snapping turtle in front of several students have been charged with a misdemeanor animal cruelty.

Preston Jr High School science teacher Robert Crosland was charged Friday in Franklin County Court. He faces up to six months in jail and a $5,000 fine if convicted.

The Idaho Attorney General’s office handled the investigation after Franklin County Prosecutor Vic Pearson cited a conflict of interest.

Several parents came forward to say Crosland fed the puppy to the turtle on March 7.

Several weeks later State officials seized the turtle and euthanized it as a non-native species.

Petition: They Burned the Snake Alive For Fun

target: Onslow County Animal Cruelty officers and Jacksonville Police

21,112 SUPPORTERS – 25,000 GOAL
A group of young men gather around the snake as it tries to escape. They spray some sort of chemical on it, and light it on fire — burning it alive.

The video of the blatant cruelty, filmed at a North Carolina Walmart parking lot, was then posted on Facebook.

Please sign and share the petition to call on local police and animal control officials to investigate and find these men — and charge them with animal cruelty.

It’s unclear if the men accidently came across the snake or if they brought it to the parking lot — but what is clear is the shocking cruel joy they demonstrate in burning a living being alive.

The links between violence to animals and violence to people are clear. Studies have shown those that commit acts of animal abuse like these are much more likely to resort to violence against humans. In fact, between 49% and 71% of women who experienced domestic abuse reported that their abusers also threatened, harmed, and or killed pets or other animals.

These men need to pay for their actions before they escalate these levels of cruelty onto other animals — or to other people. Sign the petition to call on the Onslow County Animal Cruelty officers and Jacksonville Police to find, investigate, and charge these men to the fullest extent of the law.

Teacher Drowns Helpless Raccoons in Front of Students

by: Care2 Team
target: Forest High School officials and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
49,673 SUPPORTERS – 50,000 GOAL

It’s a horrifying act by any standards — and it was all caught on video. An agriculture teacher at a Florida high school took students out of class and showed them how to forcibly drown two helpless raccoons.

The teacher, Dewie Brenton, was reportedly upset that raccoons had been harming chickens the class had been raising. The shocking video shows Brenton dunking a scared raccoon trapped inside a metal cage in a garbage bin filled with water.

This was an exercise in cruelty — plain and simple. Please sign the petition to hold this teacher accountable and have him investigated for his horrific actions.

The video was released to the media after one student showed his mother the upsetting video — saying that Brenton also had the class kill an opossum “for sport.”

The student’s mother told reporters that as the raccoons struggled to survive, Brenton and students “held them down with metal rods. And when the raccoon would try to pop its head up, they held water hoses in its face to drown it.”

According to Florida Fish and Game, raccoons and oppossums are considered “nuisance” animals and can be legally trapped during daylight hours. But they must be released or humanely euthanized. This teacher choose to torture and kill these animals in front of impressionable teenagers — even making students participate in the heartbreaking act.

Sign and share to ask Forest High School officials to fire Mr. Brenton for his cruelty and make sure that nothing like this ever happens again at the school.

Fox cubs were thrown alive to hunting hounds at kennels in Herefordshire.

Secret footage has been released which appears to show live fox cubs being delivered to the kennels of the South Herefordshire Hunt before being thrown to the pack of fox hounds. The lifeless body of a cub is then seen to be dumped into a wheelie bin, before another is taken to meet the same fate.

FOXHUNTING Sickening isn’t it? These sick twisted individuals of the South Herefordshire Hunt think throwing terrified Foxcubs to packs of starving dogs, is acceptable behaviour. Time we put an end to all Foxhunting and prosecute these barbaric morons.

Police investigating the allegations have arrested five people and are examining the footage from anti-hunt activists. All five arrested people have been released on bail while officers continue their investigation.

Those responsible for this illegal killing of fox cubs must be held accountable and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

There is no place in the modern world for this so called sport. Please help me stop it and sign my petition! If enough people sign, it will put pressure on the police and Crown Prosecution Service to ensure that justice is served, and other hunts will be deterred from carrying out similar cruel practices.

Breaking! Osvaldo Garcia Jr. & Randy Jesus Mendez Arrested In Texas After 117 Animals Were Found Packed Into 2 U-Haul Trucks In Sweltering Heat

By Lauren Lewis – May 17, 2018

In another disheartening case of “what is wrong with people,” two men have been arrested after authorities in Texas responded to an animal welfare call and discovered 117 animals crammed inside of two U-Haul trucks.
The drivers of the trucks have been identified as 22-year-old Osvaldo Garcia Jr. and 23-year-old Randy Jesus Mendez. According to KCBD News, both face charges of cruelty to animals and remain in the Parmer County Jail.

“On May 14, 2018, at approximately 12:00 in the afternoon a call was received at the Sheriff’s Office in reference to an animal welfare concern. The caller reported animals being transported in U-Haul trucks traveling into Texas from New Mexico,” the Parmer County Sherriff’s office posted on its Facebook page. “Two trucks were located and stopped by the Farwell Police Dept. and the Parmer County Sheriff’s Office, located inside one truck were 38 dairy goats. The other truck had 7 goats, 58 chickens, 5 turkeys, 3 Guineas, 2 Chinchillas and 4 dogs.”

As if it were not appalling enough, the animals were “over-heated and in distress with no water with the outside temperature being 86 degrees and the interior of the truck at over 95 degrees.”
The animals, reportedly in transport from Colorado to Florida, were rescued and cared for by a veterinarian.

Petition: Find the Cat Killer of Croydon – He’s Already Taken 450 Lives

Find the Cat Killer of Croydon – He’s Already Taken 450 Lives

by: Care2 Team
target: Scotland Yard

2,630 SUPPORTERS – 10,000 GOAL
The United Kingdom has been terrorized by a madman since 2014. He creeps around unsuspecting neighborhoods and kills innocent victims. To date, he has taken more than 450 lives — all of which have been cats, rabbits or even foxes.

The Croydon Cat Killer began haunting the South London neighborhood, luring trusting cats and other pets away from their yards and then murdering them in the most disgusting ways imaginable.

According to forensic reports, the victims are usually bludgeoned to incapacitate them, then taken to another location, dismembered and often brought back to their homes to be found by neighbors or owners.

Imagine coming home to find your beloved cat gutted and beheaded. For a pet lover, there isn’t anything worse imaginable.

But cat owners shouldn’t be the only ones worried. Experts warn that the sick cat killer will only get more brazen and that it is only a matter of time till he sets his sights on taking human prey.

Studies show that those that commit animal abuse are much more likely to resort to violence against humans. In fact, serial killers like Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and the “Son of Sam” killer David Berkowitz got their start abusing and killing animals. These people pose a threat not only to our pets and wildlife but also to society itself and they must be caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

It is important we keep this case in the public eye and encourage law enforcement to continue their search for this horrific menace.

Catch Serial Dog Poisoner Now!

by: Care2 Team
target: Edwardsville Police

95,234 SUPPORTERS – 100,000 GOAL
Someone is poisoning dogs in an Illinois neighborhood! Six dogs have died and four are currently sick, according to the people in the neighborhood.

Sign the petition to demand local authorities find this serial dog poisoner and bring him to justice!

One person saw a man feeding his dogs in the yard. When he called them in and looked at the food he realized they were meatballs laced with blue crystals! His dogs went right to the vet and had elevated kidney levels.

This is absurd. A man is going around poisoning dogs and the police haven’t caught him. Who knows why he’s doing this, but it’s not OK.

Animal abuse is a huge indicator of future violence against other animals and humans. Whoever poisoned these dogs is a real threat, and needs to be stopped before they kill again.

According to HSUS, numerous studies show a link between animal abuse and violent behavior towards other humans. A 2001-2004 study by the Chicago Police Department showed that 65% of those arrested for animal abuse had been arrested for battery against another person. When examining seven school shootings that took place across the country between 1997 and 2001, another study showed that all involved boys who had previously committed acts of animal cruelty.

As long as this person is out there, human and animal lives remain at risk. Sign now to urge Edwardsville police to find this animal serial killer now!

Petition: “All This for a Dog?”, Washington

Photo of Toby courtesy of Kitsap Humane Society

His name was Aubrey (aka Toby).Hewas just 5 months old. Not yet housebroken, and still a chewer, two annoyed roommates took him out to the woods and shot him in the abdomen. They left him in the bushes to die. He was found, but after heroic efforts to save him, he did not make it.

When police tracked the suspected killers down, one suspect asked “All this for a dog?”

The men have been charged. However, in most animal cruelty cases, laws and sentencing guidelines lack the teeth needed to take a bite out of this kind of crime.

We need stricter animal abuse laws that teach the importance of compassion for all living things.

Thanks go out to Kitsap Humane Society who did everything possible to save this puppy.

Please share this petition to convince Washington state lawmakers and enforcers that, yes, we need to do all this and more for a dog.

Petition: Hold Animal Abusers Accountable by Revoking Pet-Owning Rights, Rhode Island

by: Heather N
target: RI Attorney General, Peter F. Kilmartin, Rhode Island

599 SUPPORTERS in Rhode Island
16,774 SUPPORTERS – 17,000 GOAL

In January of 2018, a Rhode Island man named Eugene McQuade was charged with several counts of animal cruelty. This was not the first time, as he had been previously charged with animal abuse/neglect in 2013 and again in 2014.

Somehow, the law allowed him to own 11 dogs that were discovered to be living in frigid conditions this past January. The dogs were found to be abandoned outside without food or water. One was found in a truck, where the dog had been left unattended overnight with the windows rolled up. The dogs were rescued from this hell, only for three of them to be dragged back just a few months later.

Judge Sarah Taft-Carter dropped 24 of the 25 charges against McQuade and ordered the return of three of the dogs to his care. McQuade is pictured aggressively and coldly dragging the dogs away from the shelter, which had been their sanctuary since their poor living conditions were discovered. It is heartbreaking to see helpless animals lose their chance at a decent life.

If this monster acts so violently in front of the media, making threats to shelter staff and reporters, as he did on Saturday, it is alarming to imagine how he behaves when no one is watching. He and the judge who has allowed him to continue his pattern of animal abuse are sad excuses for human beings, and there is no justifcation for how this has been resolved.

Sign this petition to demand that Rhode Island authorities revoke Eugene McQuade’s pet-owning rights. NO EXCUSE FOR ABUSE!

PETITION: JUSTICE FOR HINDO- SHE WAS SAVAGELY BEATEN TO DEATH BY VICIOUS MOB IN LIVERPOOL, United Kingdom

2,186 SUPPORTERS in United Kingdom
26,076 SUPPORTERS – 30,000 GOAL

https://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/944/035/554/

We are asking the Merseyside Police for a full, thorough and detailed investigation into the brutal killing of Hindo, a family pet, thrown from her home balcony in Toxteth, Liverpool, by a mob and then brutally beaten to death with sticks.

Please sign the petition and speak up for Hindo and her family.

Hindo was a 7 year old American bulldog who had been with her family since she was 6 months old. She was soft and gentle and liked to cuddle a blanket when she went to sleep.

On the 21st April, a drunken crowd of around 40 people gathered in the road outside Hindo’s home shouting, drinking and throwing bottles at nearby cars. Hindo and her family watched from their balcony, frightened. Her owner Cristian phoned the police 3 times and reported the situation and was told each time a patrol car was on the way. His mother was brave enough to go down and ask the crowd to stop throwing bottles. The patrol car did not arrive and 10-15 members of this mob climbed fencing and reached the balcony with broken bottles where they slashed at Hindo’s owner and his mother and picked Hindo up by her legs and threw her over the balcony. Cristian fought his way through the mob to try and reach his dog, who was being savagely beaten with sticks on the road where she had fallen

Hindo died from her injuries whilst being taken to the vet. She was murdered outside her home in front of her family. This happened in England. In a country famed for loving animals.

Hindo’s family can’t bring her back, but they want to know the people responsible for this are punished to the full extent of the law. And so do we.

Neighbours saw what was happening. 10 video tapes of this horrific event have been handed to the police. 6 people have been arrested so far and released on bail pending enquiries. 2 of those have already attempted to leave the country and caught. We are asking the Merseyside Police to ensure that justice is pursued vigorously for Hindo and her family. Please join us. Please sign this petition and let Merseyside Police know that the British Public want justice for Hindo and her family.

Petition: Tourist Steals Dying Dolphin From Beach

by: Care2 Team
target: Yangjiang City Police

37,309 SUPPORTERS
40,000 GOAL

As the small dolphin lay suffering on the shore, a man approached. But he didn’t help the beached animal — instead he did something far worse.

The male tourist, dressed only in black swimming trucks, was filmed by shocked beachgoers picking up and throwing the dying dolphin over his shoulder. The man even seems to smile at the horrified onlookers as he walks off with the dolphin slung over his shoulder. He is then seen taking the dolphin to his car and speeding off.

Sign and share this petition to demand that local authorities find this man and charge him to fullest extent of the law for this cruel and illegal act!

The video was taken at Hailing Island off the coast of Yangjiang City in southern China and the unidentified man is still at large. The poor dolphin’s fate is unknown.

In the wild, dolphins are very social and emotionally sensitive animals. Their intelligence has been described by scientists to be on par with great apes and human toddlers. It’s unconscionable that this man would treat this helpless dolphin so cruelly — committing it to a painful death while he callously collects the animal like a souvenir.

Join the global call for Yangjiang City Police to treat this case as seriously as possible. This tourist needs to be found, investigated, and charged for this horrific act of abuse!

Justice Must Be Served After Man Heartlessly Carries Stranded Dolphin Off Of A Beach In South China – World Animal News

Justice Must Be Served After Man Heartlessly Carries Stranded Dolphin Off Of A Beach In South China
By WAN – May 4, 2018

Police are looking for a man who was filmed callously carrying a stranded dolphin off of a beach in southern China.
The horrifying footage, taken at popular tourist destination Hailing Island in Guangdong province, was reportedly filmed during China’s three-day labor holiday on May 1st.
According to Channel News Asia, the man picked up the dolphin, which appeared to be lifeless, and swung it over his shoulder before driving away with it in a car.
As per China’s Law of Wildlife Protection, dolphins are one of the species that citizens are not allowed to hunt, kill, sell, or keep, even if the mammals are found dead.
“Dolphins are protected animals in China,” an official stated after the local fisheries bureau launched an investigation. “Whether it is dead or alive, it is wrong to take it away. He should have called the authorities to deal with the matter.”
“Is he going to boil the dolphin,” questioned one person, “This is simply disgusting.”
Local officials have confirmed that the man could face criminal charges for his action.
Could? He absolutely Should!

WAN’s Most Wanted: Help Needed To Identify Man Who Harassed Moose In Colorado – World Animal News

WAN’s Most Wanted: Help Needed To Identify Man Who Harassed Moose In Colorado
By WAN -May 7, 2018

Colorado Parks and Wildlife is requesting that the public help identify a man pictured on social media standing within a few feet of an angry moose along a busy stretch of road in Frisco, Colorado.
According to a witness, he and his passenger observed the man chase the moose onto the median Friday afternoon in the 900 block of 10 Mile Drive in Frisco. They were able to snap a photo of the incident as they drove past the man and the agitated animal.
“It is very evident from the photo that the moose is angry, and the man could easily have been attacked and injured, or possibly killed,” District Wildlife Manager Elissa Slezak of Summit County said in a statement yesterday. “You can clearly see that the moose’s ears are pinned back and its hackles are raised. It is likely this person does not realize how much danger he put himself in, or maybe he does not care.”
Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials stress that moose do not attack people unprovoked; however, they will defend themselves very aggressively if threatened or harassed. Moose do not fear people and will stand their ground, giving the impression they are tolerant of a human’s presence.
“I strongly advise against approaching these animals,” said Slezak. “They can weigh up to 1000 pounds, can run much faster than humans, and possess a strong instinct for self-preservation.”
Slezak noted that the individual in the photo will likely be cited for harassment of wildlife if he is identified, but the bigger concern is making sure the individual does not repeat the behavior.
Anyone with information can remain anonymous by calling Operation Game Thief at 877-265-6648 or emailing game.thief@state.co.us.
Reward available if information given leads to an arrest or citation.

Petition: Justice for Beau, Cat Shot With an Arrow and Left for Dead!

by: Andrew M
target: Western Australia Police Force

108,051 SUPPORTERS – 110,000 GOAL

Someone with a bow and arrow thought it would be funny to shoot a cat, and it almost cost Beau his life.

Beau was probably on his last of nine lives when rescuers found him on the side of the road in Perth, Australia. The orange tabby cat was found with an arrow lodged in its head. According to rescuers, the arrow could have been stuck in its body for up to two days, causing excruciating pain and getting infected. In fact, by the time he was taken to the vet, the wound was already infested with maggots.

Rescuers say Beau is making a good recovery but he still has a long way to go. But what about the sick individual who did this to him?

The people that commit these types crimes pose a threat not only to our animals and wildlife but also to society itself. People who are prone to commit acts of violence against animals are much more likely to do the same to humans. It is imperative that animal abusers like Beau’s attacker are taken off the streets.

Please sign the petition and let’s ask the Western Australia Police Force to find Beau’s abuser and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.

Fight for the innocent, Inc. started this petition to Tulsa Animal Welfare and 5 others
5-7 minutes

The other day, a post on facebook was brought to my attention from a man asking for help regarding an incident he had witnessed. On February 21 2018, In Tulsa, Oklahoma, between 12:30-1:00 a small dog wrapped in a blanket, was viciously beat to death with a plastic covered concrete barbell weigh, that there were eyewitnesses to. The man who did this is identified as Russell Wayne Brown Senior, and the dog belonged to his roommate, who was an older woman that owned a little white dog. One of the witnesses, James Penick, called 911, Tulsa Police, and was informed, quote ” We don’t handle animal cases”.. However the city of Tulsa’s website says otherwise :

https://www.cityoftulsa.org/government/departments/working-in-neighborhoods/animal-welfare/abuse/

When You Witness Animal Cruelty
It can be disturbing-and heartbreaking-to witness an act of animal cruelty.

If you witness animal cruelty, please call Animal Welfare or the Tulsa Police Department immediately.

Animal Cruelty is a felony in the state of Oklahoma:

OKLA. STAT. tit. 21, § 1685 (2016). Cruelty to animals.
Any person who shall willfully or maliciously torture, destroy or kill, or cruelly beat or injure, maim or mutilate any animal in subjugation or captivity, whether wild or tame, and whether belonging to the person or to another, or deprive any such animal of necessary food, drink, shelter, or veterinary care to prevent suffering; or who shall cause, procure or permit any such animal to be so tortured, destroyed or killed, or cruelly beaten or injured, maimed or mutilated, or deprived of necessary food, drink, shelter, or veterinary care to prevent suffering; or who shall willfully set on foot, instigate, engage in, or in any way further any act of cruelty to any animal, or any act tending to produce such cruelty, shall be guilty of a felony and shall be punished by imprisonment in the State Penitentiary not exceeding five (5) years, or by imprisonment in the county jail not exceeding one (1) year, or by a fine not exceeding Five Thousand Dollars ($5,000.00). Any animal so maltreated or abused shall be considered an abused or neglected animal.

After calling 911, James was referred to by Tulsa Police to call animal control. After 20 minutes on hold, filing his complaint, Tulsa Animal Control went to the wrong address, and furthermore, did not pursue any further actions. By then… Russell Brown Senior had picked up the blanket with the beaten and dead dog and took it around the back of the house. Apparently, an ambulance and firetruck also came and took the woman (who owned the dog) away in their vehicles. The City of Tulsa then sent James an email saying case was closed, no further action needed.

That is not something we are going to accept.

According to http://nationallinkcoalition.org:

-A police department review of national crime records found that 70% of people charged with cruelty to animals also had other reported incidents of violent behavior, including homicide. (Boat & Knight, 2000)
-43% of perpetrators of school shootings have histories of animal abuse (Verlinden, Herson & Thomas, 2000).
-Pet abuse is one of the four most significant risk factors for someone becoming a domestic violence abuser (Walton-Moss, Manganello et al., 2005)
-The International Association of Chiefs of Police wrote, “Over the last decade, social scientists and law enforcement agencies have begun to examine cruelty to animals as a serious human problem closely linked to domestic violence, child abuse, elder abuse, and other violent crimes. [Link efforts] cannot undo generations of abuse, but they can be an effective means of breaking the cycle of family violence from one generation to the next.” (Lockwood, 2000)

-Police researchers determined that animal abuse is a better predictor of sexual assault than are previous convictions for homicide, arson or weapons offenses. Animal cruelty offenders average four different types of criminal offenses, and 100% of sexual homicide offenders reported having been cruel to animals. (Gullone & Clarke, 2005)

The last statement, in this case especially, proves to be true. Russell Brown Senior is also a convicted offender in the county of Tulsa; sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Dogs are so much more than dogs. They are our protectors, service dogs, soldiers who fight for our country, comfort for young traumatized victims, and so much more. They are our best friends. To harm them in any way is a betrayal beyond words.

We are urging City of Tulsa Animal Welfare, The Tulsa police department, and Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler to file charges and prosecute Russell Wayne Brown SENIOR for felony Animal Cruelty under OKLA. STAT. tit. 21, § 1685. If this man is capable of beating a small defenseless dog to death with a concrete barbell, imagine what he could eventually do to a child. We are asking them to please seek justice for this innocent and defenseless creature and do what they have been sworn to do, which is to protect your city from dangerous predators, such as Russell Brown SENIOR.

Thank you

“We must, as prosecutors, recognize that it is unacceptable to excuse and ignore acts of cruelty toward animals. Anyone who can commit such cruelty is in desperate need of incarceration.” — A. William Ritter, Jr., District Attorney, Denver, Colo. (Ritter, 1996)

Four More Sentenced in US Multi-State Dog Fighting Ring

Four More Sentenced in US Multi-State Dog Fighting Ring

Four more people convicted of being part of a multi-state dog fighting ring were sentenced to prison Monday as part of the Justice Department’s nationwide crackdown on dog fighting.

The four men received prison terms ranging from one to five years. A fifth person will be sentenced next month while four others will be put on trial this summer.

“Dog fighting is vicious and cruel. And beyond the needless suffering it inflicts on animals, it exacts a toll on local animal shelters, humane organizations and taxpayers,” U.S. Attorney Greg Carpentino said Monday.

The suspects are accused of taking part in a dog fighting ring in four states in which a number of dogs were forced to fight to their bloody death.

Along with causing unspeakable pain and suffering to the animals, U.S. attorneys say dog fighting rings also include other crimes such as illegal gambling, and drug and weapons trafficking.

So far, U.S. agents have rescued 98 dogs as part of Operation Grand Champion. The Humane Society of the United States is helping the Justice Department take care of the saved animals.

FILE – Dogs sit at a home in Auburn, Ala., in this photo provided by the ASPCA. A federal and state investigation into dog fighting and gambling has resulted in the arrest of 12 people from Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and Texas, Aug. 23, 2013.

A fifth defendant pleaded guilty in federal court Wednesday for his part in a brutal multistate dog-fighting ring.

Mario Atkinson of New Jersey will spend two years in prison and was fined $1,000.

He admitted fighting his dog in Virginia and dumping the dead animal in the garbage after the fight.

Federal agents seized 18 pit bull-type dogs from Atkinson in 2016, saying the dogs had scars and injuries consistent with organized fighting.

“Animal cruelty like the conduct in this case has no place in a civilized society,” U.S. Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Wood said.

Four other defendants were given prison terms of one to five years last month as part of Operation Grand Champion, the Justice Department’s nationwide crackdown on dog fighting.

So far, U.S. agents have rescued 98 dogs and The Humane Society of the United States is helping take care of the dogs.

Along with causing pain and suffering to the animals, U.S. attorneys say dog fighting rings also include other crimes such as illegal gambling, and drug and weapons trafficking.

Morgan Tucker started this petition to Saint Francois County Prosecuter

In Febuary 2018 Jason Hampton, of Farmington MO shot a yellow lab known as Trooper and paralyzed him. He then hit him over the head with a hammer, dumped him, and left him for dead. Trooper laid paralyzed and alive for weeks, sitting in his own feces and urine for so long it began burning through his flesh. Trooper has a long road ahead of him, and will most likely never fully recover from his injuries. He will need around the clock care, daily vet visits, and someone to dedicate their entire life to him. People from around the country have donated towards his $10,000+ vet bill. We also ask the defendant make monetary donations to animal rescues as part of his sentence, and be fired from his position with St Francois County. He admitted to the Crime, but when charged he recanted his statement and placed blame on the dog. We are asking that you file charges and pursue the maximum penalty allowed under the law.
