Justice for Dog With Rubber Band Around Mouth and Paw, Exposing Bone

Target: Andy Beshear, Attorney General of Kentucky

Goal: Punish whoever placed a rubber band around a dog’s mouth and paw, causing its bone to be exposed.

A Pomeranian mix is reportedly being treated for injuries as a result of a rubber band being wrapped tightly around its mouth and front paw. Officials say that it cut the dog’s circulation off and exposed its bone. Photos of the small, helpless animal paint a gruesome picture of abuse.

If it weren’t for people finding the dog, named Bandit by animal service staff, it would’ve probably suffered a slow, agonizing death. It appears that the band was holding Bandit’s mouth shut, which would make it impossible to eat or drink.

In a news release, a spokesperson called it a “potential” case of abuse and asked the public to come forward with information about the owners. This appears to be a definite case of abuse and authorities should thoroughly investigate until they find out who placed the torturous rubber band around Bandit. Enforcement of Kentucky’s animal cruelty laws has been too lenient and it’s time that changes. Please sign this petition demanding that authorities prosecute the person responsible.


Dear Mr. Beshear,

A Pomeranian mix was reportedly found with a rubber band around its mouth and paw, cutting bone-deep and cutting off circulation. The person responsible remains at large.

This unusual form of torture against a helpless animal must not go unpunished. We urge you to do whatever it takes to prosecute the person responsible to the fullest extent.

  2. Hi

    Has anyone heard about the Katie Brown dog abuse? She was allowed to keep her dog that she duct taped his mouth shut. Someone please start a petition!! I would start one but I want it to be big.

  3. I am convinced that most Senators, Congressmen and State Governors are decent and humane human beings. Please urge Congress to bring in a Federal animal abusers register which will bring animal abuse to the forefront of your society and help prevent it along with the high risk it presents of ensuing child abuse. It will help determine the vital difference between those suffering from drink and/or drug addictions or other mental health disorders and those who just torture from a criminal base.

  4. Potential abuse?!?! Let’s tie a rubber band around the persons face so they can’t eat or drink. Then let’s see if they call it abuse then?. What the hell is wrong with people! Yes it is a very sick violent sadistic crime that is just the first indication of a sick demented CRIMINAL,!
    If any law maker judge or anyone else wants to say this is not abuse let the assjack who did this live with you, or just in your community, let this beast take care of your kids if it’s not abuse.

  5. Special candle for you ? my friend
    RIP ?
    Nature treats back now ? bastards
    Take responsibility for your cruelty
    Live your nightmare now ?
    Feel the pain of your victim
    every minute of your senseless life
    Live your hell ? now
    Because I am a Guardian for the animals
