Target: Dan Barrett, Deputy Director of Contra Costa County Animal Control, California
Goal: Conduct investigation into animal carcasses reportedly placed in garbage bags.
Nine bags full of different animal body parts and carcasses were found strung along a road. According to people who posted photos to social media, the large, clear garbage bags contained the parts of raccoons, cats, and dogs. Despite this bizarre, alarming incident, animal control officers aren’t bothering to investigate. Instead, Contra Costa County Animal Control blew off the entire incident, telling outlets that the bags contained the carcasses of goats and chickens and that it appears to be garbage from a party.
It sounds as if the animal control officers don’t see goats and chickens as important, living creatures who deserve to live. What kind of sick party includes animal carcasses? Nine random bags of dead animals should be a cause for extreme concern. Residents in the neighborhood where the carcasses were found are scared for the lives of their pets, and rightly so.
Please add your name to this petition demanding that the animal control authorities take the lives of animals more seriously and conduct an investigation to find out what happened to these poor souls.
Dear Mr. Barrett,
Nine random garbage bags full of animal carcasses were reportedly found strewn along a road. People who found the bags posted photos to social media saying they contained the body parts of cats, raccoons, and dogs. However, an animal control spokesman says that it was goat and chicken carcasses and that they believe it was just the result of a party, not cruelty.
It’s appalling that nine bags of random dead animals would not be concerning enough to animal control officers. All animal lives are important and we demand that an investigation be conducted to find out what happened to these poor animals.
[Your Name Here]
