Target: Jeremy Wright, Attorney General for England and Wales
Goal: Save dog accused of killing sheep from being euthanized without evidence.
A dog may be put to sleep because a farmer, who lacks proof, is claiming the animal killed his sheep. We need to take action in order to save this animal.
Pandora the dog has thrived in a home with other animals, children, and her owner Sarajane Rounds for the last two years. If she was really as aggressive as the farmer is claiming, it is highly probable that she would have already attacked either one of the cats, dogs or children living at the residence. Since this has not even come close to happening once during the entire 24 month time period that Sarajane has owned her dog, there is a high likelihood that the dog never attacked or killed any of this particular farmer’s sheep. Furthermore, it is a good possibility that the farmer is only making such a claim for the sake of trying to get paid money for said compensatory damages.
Demand Pandora not be euthanized. Killing this animal without having 100 percent concrete evidence that this incident ever occurred is not only heartless, it is also completely unjust.
Dear Attorney General Wright,
A farmer who does not have solid proof is accusing a dog of having chased and eaten his sheep. Because of this alleged incident, the dog may be put to sleep. Taking this action when there has only been substantial evidence presented is both inhumane and grossly unfair.
The dog—Pandora—has been living in a home with many other animals and children for the past two years. Since she has never attacked or even come close to attacking either a child or an animal at the residence, it is highly unlikely that she ever killed any sheep. Additionally, while there may not be a way of proving this statement to be absolutely true, it also cannot be disproven that the farmer may have taken the actions that he did in order to try and win compensatory damages for what he claims are his losses. Killing this dog without having all of the facts in place is an unethical and cruel act.
For these reasons, I urge you to suggest Pandora not be put to sleep unless or until it can be shown beyond a reasonable doubt that she either severely attacked or killed other animals. No animal deserves to be killed simply because someone claims that a supposed episode took place.
