Target: Michael Hestrin, Riverside County District Attorney
Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the person who starved and neglected over forty pit bulls.
Eleven pit bulls were found dead in a small, dilapidated home. Over 30 more dogs were found on the property, emaciated and in poor health. Demand justice for these innocent dogs.
It was the gut-wrenching odor that brought Riverside County sheriff’s deputies to the home. There they found over 40 pit bulls crammed into the small space, eleven of them dead. The dogs lived in their own feces and some were so malnourished that they could not walk on their own.
Investigators are still searching for the owner of the home, but suspect that this may have been the location of a backyard breeder. The dogs are receiving medical care at The San Jacinto Valley Animal Campus. Sign below and demand the maximum penalty in this case.
Dear District Attorney Hestrin,
Eleven dogs died in a home filled with trash and feces. Over thirty more were severely neglected. We demand the maximum penalty in this case.
Some of the dogs lived in makeshift crates, while others roamed throughout the squalor. Their spines and ribs showed through their skin and they all appeared to be in poor health.
Neglect of this magnitude cannot go unpunished. We demand that you take a stand against backyard breeders and seek the maximum penalty in this case.
