Target: La Porte Police Department Detective Matt Davidson
Goal: Find and arrest the person who allegedly stabbed a young calf in its rectum.
A harmless, innocent calf raised by a high school student was stabbed internally a week before its debut at the Houston Livestock Show. Its owner, Hunter, discovered the young calf in critical condition after the vicious attack, and unfortunately, it was unable to recover. His family was called by the owner of the barn, where they keep the calf, and was told that the animal was sluggish, ill, and had great difficulty standing on its own. When a vet arrived to examine the animal, the family was shocked to realize the brutal extent of the calf’s injuries from the attack.
La Porte Police Department Detective Matt Davidson described the wound as a “perforation to the calf’s internal portion of his rectum.” Although the calf hung on for as long as possible, there seemed to be no alternative besides euthanizing it. The police department has issued a statement that they are accepting tips that will lead to the suspect’s arrest, but no progress has been made. Their Facebook post states, “…an unknown suspect entered a pasture […] then used a sharp instrument to cut the calf internally, which ultimately led to the calf having to be euthanized.” There is a possibility that the suspect could strike again, so farmers and ranchers should be wary.
Do not let the suspect get away from committing a heinous act of cruelty. Please sign this petition to demand swift justice for the poor calf that was brutally stabbed.
Dear Detective Matt Davidson,
The calf that was stabbed internally and left for dead in a field deserves justice. I cannot imagine how much it suffered before eventually being discovered by its shocked owner. The calf laid on the ground for hours, bleeding out and agonizing for a prolonged period of time; obviously, the suspect was sadistic enough to injure an animal just to make it suffer. The person who committed this disgusting crime needs to be arrested and punished severely. There is never a reason to attack a defenseless animal, and the manner in which the suspect did so is appalling.
I am urging you to do everything in your power to investigate this incident and arrest the suspect responsible for stabbing an innocent calf. The suspect needs to be formally charged with animal cruelty. I am also afraid that this person may find an opportunity to attack more animals in the future, so his or her arrest is urgent.
