Target: Sherburne County Attorney Kathleen Heaney
Goal: Punish man accused of cruelly beating and killing dog.
Andrea Godfrey’s husky-Shiba Inu mix, named Draco, was cruelly beaten and killed, allegedly by her boyfriend, who filmed the whole incident on camera. Demand that her boyfriend, Anthony Sather, be punished to the full extent of the law for his extreme acts of animal torture and murder.
Godfrey was told by Sather that Draco had run away after he opened the car door. About a week later, Godfrey received a call from someone who said that he or she found Draco’s body in a ditch. Draco was eventually discovered with bullet wounds in his body. Godfrey carefully searched through Sather’s computer, where she found three incredibly disturbing videos. According to police reports, one of the videos shows Sather turning on the camera in his garage and dragging Draco out from his kennel. Sather proceeds to beat the harmless husky repeatedly, even lifting the dog and slamming him against the concrete floor. Although Draco yelps and struggles to run away, Sather drags Draco’s body outside and shots are heard. At one point during the brutal beatings, he even locks eyes with the camera, smiles wickedly, and says, “This ain’t done yet.”
Godfrey turned all the video evidence over to Sherburne Police and the department promptly raided Sather’s house for the handgun seen in the disturbing footage. The gun, 300 Valium pills, and two massive bags of marijuana were discovered. Draco’s collar and six other weapons were also found in a gun safe in the basement. Sather has been charged with felony counts for fifth degree drug possession and animal torture.
Please sign this petition to demand Sather be prosecuted to the highest degree that the law allows.
Dear Ms. Heaney,
Anthony Sather was charged with a count of animal torture. What he did to his girlfriend’s innocent dog is heinous and he does not deserve any leniency. Draco’s torture was filmed on video, showing Sather repeatedly beating and dragging the husky like a rag doll. I cannot fathom the amount of fear that Draco felt when he was trapped inside a garage. Even though Draco was being cruelly beaten, he did not attack Sather; instead, he yelped and pleaded for his life. Sadly, Draco was taken from his owner too soon and dumped unceremoniously in a ditch.
Sather feels no remorse or compassion for another life. Judging from the video, he is a danger to himself and society. I am asking you to ensure that Sather is punished to the fullest extent of the law. Let him know that an animal’s life is precious.
