Target: Greg Zoeller, Attorney General of Indiana
Goal: Punish people who reportedly beat a crow with sticks.
A group of boys reportedly beat a baby American crow with sticks while the crow’s family screamed from the trees above. The baby crow was rescued and is being treated for the severe injuries, but officials aren’t certain the animal will recover. The wildlife sanctuary officials said that crows are highly intelligent and that the baby crow’s parents are grieving the loss in a similar manner to how humans grieve. Knowing this makes this even more heart-wrenching.
Reports state that a group of boys were responsible for this senseless violence, but nothing has been said about whether they will be charged or punished. The wildlife sanctuary has stated that they’re seeing an increase in animal cruelty cases, yet the state of Indiana has been under scrutiny for their lack of action against animal cruelty. We must put pressure on officials to act now before more animals are brutally beaten and killed. Please sign this petition demanding that the people who violently attacked this baby bird be brought to justice.
Dear Mr. Zoeller,
A baby crow was reportedly assaulted by a group of boys who beat the tiny, helpless baby with sticks. Even as the crow’s family screamed from the trees above, the attackers were relentless and continued until someone intervened. Unfortunately, the bird may not be able to recover from the extreme injuries, according to the wildlife center.
It’s time that Indiana stop being so lenient when it comes to animal cruelty. We urge you to see to it that the boys who attacked this helpless bird are charged and punished to the most severe extent possible.
