Target: Christopher McKim, Ephrata, PA’s Police Lieutenant
Goal: Charge men with animal cruelty for allegedly beating a collapsed horse to death.
A horse reportedly had to be euthanized after collapsing and being beaten by two men. The horse was carrying a wagon full of watermelons when witnesses say a man injured it, causing the animal to collapse on a highway. Bystanders also saw two men beat the horse after it fell to the ground. Police believed the horse had overheated, so they had firefighters spray it with water with no success. The horse lost its life thanks to possible mistreatment and cruelty.
Police say that the horse’s owner may face animal cruelty charges, but none have been filed. It’s a shame that people can brutally beat an innocent animal in public and still not be charged and punished for it. Demand that the authorities show zero tolerance for what these men allegedly did and charge them with animal cruelty immediately.
Dear Mr. McKim,
A horse was reportedly carrying a wagon of watermelons when it collapsed and was beaten by two men. The poor animal had to be euthanized after the incident.
Despite witnesses saying that they saw the horse being beaten, animal cruelty charges have yet to be filed. These men must be punished harshly if they contributed to the poor animal’s death. We demand that you show zero tolerance for animal cruelty and charge these men, if found guilty.
[Your Name Here]
