Demand Stricter Punishment for Animal Cruelty Offenders

tilly-by-BARL

Target: Tate Reeves, Lieutenant Governor of Mississippi

Goal: Enact stricter animal protection laws after a cat is reportedly beaten to death.

A cat died after reportedly sustaining a vicious beating. A visitor allegedly attacked her at the Brookhaven National Rescue League Adoption Center (BARL). Demand that justice is served for this innocent cat.

Shelter workers found 3-year-old Tilly bleeding shortly after a visitor exited the BARL adoption center. Her blood covered the walls and a plastic stick was found nearby. Though rushed to the vet immediately, Tilly did not survive her injuries. A man has been arrested and charged with animal cruelty, but reports state that he is already out on bond.

In Mississippi, animal cruelty is only a misdemeanor charge on the first attempt. This makes it highly unlikely that this offender, if convicted, will receive suitable punishment for his crime. Sign below and demand that stricter laws are put in place in order to prevent animal cruelty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Lt. Governor Reeves,

A cat died after she was reportedly beaten in an animal shelter. Workers found 3-year-old Tilly bloody and in pain following a visit with a potential adopter. We demand that justice is served for this innocent cat.

A shelter worker returned to find blood splattered across the room. Tilly’s odd behavior and a broken stick in the corner told the rest of the story. Though the worker rushed Tilly to the vet, she died from her injuries.

A man has been charged with animal cruelty in this case but will only face a misdemeanor charge due to this being his first attempt. This is unacceptable. Animal abuse should be a felony every time. We demand that stricter laws are set in place against animal abusers.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Our Government is a shambles, the loopholes, the laws that so called protect animals are utterly ridiculous. Why do my tax dollars fund a system that repeatedly releases these torturers back on the streets? A MISDEMEANOR!! Next he will abuse a child, proven behavior. What exactly do legislators do anyway?? Ridiculous…..

      I am SO Sick unto death of our so-called “justice” system and the ball-less idiots sitting in judgement of these worthless pricks! Why do they consider letting them go without any worthwhile punishment “justice?!?” IDIOTS.

  2. Poor abandoned, then brutally murdered, Tilly! My heart aches for what she had to go through. If only these beastly humans would be considered equally “disposable,” so THEY could be eradicated without a second thought. But since these inhumane acts are now so prevalent, why didn’t this shelter have surveillance cameras in place to record who goes in and who goes out, if someone isn’t physically there to monitor what’s going on? That’s being just as stupid as bureaucracy is, waiting for tragedy BEFORE you implement any safety measures.

  3. RIP POOR TILLY….THIS IS SO SICK…HOW DID THIS HAPPEN??OMG………….DOESN’T THE RESCUE HAVE A PERSON WHO KEEPS AN EYE ON POTENTIAL ADOPTERS OR HAVE CAMERAS??? I GUESS THIS IS A WAKE UP CALL. WE LIVE IN A WORLD OF MONSTERS AND THIS MONSTER MUST BE MADE AN EXAMPLE OF…….

    EVIDENTLY NEW LAWS BUT UNTIL THEN GIVE THEM A LONG JAIL TIME, A HUGE FINE, BANNED FROM HAVING OR BEING AROUND ANY ANIMAL, DEMAND PSYCHIATRIC HELP AS THEY ARE MORE THAN SICK!!

    ATTENTION AUTHORITIES;
    FBI STUDIES SHOW THAT ANIMAL ABUSERS THOSE WHO ABUSE,TORTURE AND KILL ANIMALS MOVE ON TO DOING THE SAME TO HUMANS AND THIS PERVERTED MONSTER DID IT WHERE THERE WERE OTHERS IN THE BUILDING SO WHAT WOULD HE HAVE DONE IN HIS OWN HOME??? HE MUST BE STOPPED NOW AND JUSTICE MUST BE GOTTEN FOR THIS POOR BABY TILLY SHOULD NEVER HAVE HAD TO ENDURE THIS HORROR!! WHAT IS THIS MONSTERS NAME??? I WOULD HATE TO LIVE NEAR THEM OR BE RELATED TO THEM.

    WATCH YOUR KIDS AND ANIMALS PEOPLE WHILE THIS MONSTER IS AROUND!!

    With all my heart and soul I wish that these maggot gutless wastes of oxygen would suffer EXACTLY LIKE they make the poor precious beautiful innocent animals suffer. Oh okay I admit it I don’t really feel that way—-
    I wish they suffered a million times worse.
    They deserve it, the animals don’t.
