Target: Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine
Goal: Prosecute the robbers who broke in to Akron Rattery and Reptile Rescue in Ohio, stole seven pythons and let loose numerous other animals.
Robbers broke into the Akron Rattery and Reptile Rescue recently, stealing seven pythons valued at $5000 and letting loose several other animals, including a chinchilla and numerous guinea pigs. Robin Everley, owner of the rescue, said that most of the animals are sick and may die without proper care and medicine. One of the snakes is pregnant, putting even more innocent animal lives at risk.
The robbers tipped over the animals’ cages in order to let them out, including a chinchilla and several guinea pigs from a local high school. The rescue is state-certified and helps to care for animals who are rescued during police raids.
The crime committed here was not just a simple act of robbery, it was a crime against sick, innocent animals who may not be able to live without proper care. These kinds of crimes can unfairly destroy the lives of animals must not be tolerated. Demand these criminals face the maximum penalty under law when they are found.
Dear Attorney General Mike DeWine,
Recently, robbers broke into the Akron Rattery and Reptile Rescue in Ohio and stole seven sick pythons and one who was pregnant. Numerous other animals were set loose, including a local high school’s chinchilla and guinea pigs. Now, these animals may die without proper care and medicine.
Animals who have been rescued from horrible situations should not have to face them again when they think they’re in a better place. This crime was not just a robbery, it was a crime against innocent animals who now may die thanks to the reckless and terrible behavior of these criminals. This kind of cruelty to animals cannot be tolerated.
I urge you, when these criminals are found, to prosecute them with the maximum penalty under law for their sickening crime.
