Target: Madeline Singas, Nassau County District Attorney
Goal: Seek justice for puppy thrown from moving vehicle.
Passersby recently witnessed a five-month-old puppy thrown from a dark sedan on a residential road. Shocked and concerned, a resident rushed over to see if the puppy was injured. Acting understandably unfriendly, the frightened puppy simply huddled on a nearby porch. When authorities arrived to evaluate him, he cowered in fear.
The puppy, who was renamed Bandit, thankfully did not suffer any injuries from the traumatic experience. He exhibits many signs of previous abuse, which probably doesn’t come as a surprise given the situation he was in. Being thrown from a moving car was the likely a small, yet dramatic glimpse into what Bandit had been suffering for weeks or even months. Normal pet owners do not partake in this kind of sick and reckless behavior–these pet owners have likely abused before and they will abuse again.
Authorities are currently searching for the owner of the dark sedan with tinted windows, and are offering a $5000 reward for any information that could reveal the identity or whereabouts of the perpetrators. Please sign this petition encouraging the Nassau County District Attorney to seek the maximum penalty for those responsible for abusing this poor, young puppy.
Dear Ms. Singas,
I am writing this letter to you in the hopes that you will strongly consider seeking the maximum penalty for those allegedly responsible for throwing a five-month-old puppy from a moving car on a residential street. People who have such disregard for life and such a lack of compassion should never have come into possession of a pet. It is by setting high standards for animal welfare that we can hope for behavior that is worthy of adopting and caring for pets.
This poor puppy, Bandit, unsurprisingly showed signs of past abuse when being evaluated for injuries from the most recent incident of abuse. Luckily, this time Bandit was spared serious injuries but that should not take away from the callous behavior displayed by the owners who chose to throw the small puppy from their moving sedan. In considering their disgusting behavior, we can safely assume that they will abuse a pet again, if given the opportunity.
We must prevent this type of abuse from happening by enforcing strong penalties for such atrocities and setting the bar high for animal treatment. Please ensure that you seek the maximum penalty for those involved in throwing Bandit from the vehicle.
[Your Name Here]
