Justice for Dog Chained and Left to Die with Mouth Taped Shut

Target: Elton Mathis, Waller County, Texas District Attorney

Goal: Harshly prosecute person who left a dog to die while chained to a rock with its mouth taped shut.

A young dog was found chained to a rock with its mouth taped shut. Randy Abke and his wife, the couple that found the dog, nicknamed him Rusty and called the Sheriff’s Office. Both Randy and the officer responding to the call believe the dog was left to die. The dog was treated by a veterinarian and since he did not have a microchip, the Abkes have adopted him.

Demand the perpetrator of this heinous act of cruelty is located and prosecuted for every possible charge.


Dear Attorney Mathis,

A defenseless young dog was left to die chained to a rock with its mouth taped shut. When rescuers Randy Abke and his wife noticed the dog chained to the bottom of a creek bed, they called the Sheriff’s Office. Both the responding officer and the Abkes believe the dog was deliberately left to die. Fortunately, the dog received veterinary care and has been adopted by the Abkes.

We demand the perpetrator of this horrible crime is located and prosecuted on all possible charges.

    Prosecute the abuser(s) to the fullest extent. Animal abuse has got to stop and it won’t stop until the abusers start getting punished. If they can do this to this poor dog it’s just a matter of time before they hurt a child.

  2. This makes the 4th recent news story were an evil individual has taped shut a dog’s snout. All those for preps have to be found and jailed ASAP before they go on to hurt or even kill other animals or humans.

  3. throw the criminal in the dungeon for 40 years! he doesn’t deserve to be in the world!

  4. Why are there NEVER any dates with these petitions?

  5. Time to stop animal abuse EVERYWHERE.!!!!!
