Woman Stabbed Dog to Death to Avoid Vet Fees, Say Police

Target: Christopher Hicks, Washoe County District Attorney

Goal: Penalize woman accused of stabbing dog to death to avoid paying for euthanasia.

A female boxer was found dead in a dumpster with multiple stab wounds and blunt force trauma to the head. Police say the poor animal was killed by her owner who didn’t want to pay to have the dog euthanized. The woman faces numerous charges, including malicious torture, maiming or killing of an animal and driving under the influence. She also faces neglect charges for allegedly leaving a young child at home alone during the time of her arrest.

There are plenty of non-violent options that could’ve been used if the dog was unwanted. It appears that this woman is unstable and violent. The reported stab wounds and blunt force head trauma this innocent animal suffered from is nothing short of pure cruelty. The woman accused has no business being an owner or guardian to a living being if she’s capable of such horrific violence. Demand that she receive the maximum penalty and a permanent ban from owning animals if she’s guilty.


Dear District Attorney Hicks,

A dog was found in a dumpster with blunt force head trauma and multiple stab wounds. Authorities say the boxer’s owner killed her to avoid having to pay for euthanasia.

This is no way to get rid of an unwanted dog and there are plenty of other options. This appears to be a case of pure cruelty and violence against an innocent animal. We urge you to do everything in your power to make sure this woman receives the maximum penalty and never owns animals again if she’s guilty.

    The maximum penalty should be the same as killing a person. In addition to that they should be in a national registry as an abuser and never allowed to have an animal again.
