Target: Allen Campbell, Bastrop Police Chief
Goal: Pursue the maximum penalties for men who reportedly tortured a dog before slitting its throat on video.
A dog was reportedly tortured by two men who put him on the back of a horse before later slitting the poor animal’s throat. A social media video, which shows the dog being tortured and stabbed repeatedly, was reportedly filmed at a horse kill pen. One of the men apparently wraps a rope around the dog’s neck. A man is then shown riding a horse with the dog hanging off the back choking. Then one of the men is apparently seen slitting the dog’s throat with a knife, after which the dog bleeds to death.
One of the men can be heard bragging that “Michael Vick has nothing on me.” Someone else in the video yells words of encouragement as the man continues to slit the dog’s throat.
Boots Stanley and Steven Sadler have since been charged with one count each of aggravated animal cruelty. As the video appears to show, these men seem to get pleasure from destroying an innocent animal in the most savage ways imaginable. Anyone who enjoys torturing and killing animals is sadistic and poses a serious threat to the lives of others. Please add your signature to this petition to help bring this poor dog justice by demanding the most severe penalty possible for the dog’s killers.
Dear Chief Campbell,
Two men reportedly tortured a dog and slit his throat at a kill pen where horses go before being slaughtered. A video shows the dog struggling to stay atop of a horse’s back before being savagely and repeatedly stabbed.
The people accused of torturing and killing this dog seem to be sadistic and a danger to society. We urge you to do everything possible to ensure that this poor animal receives justice and that these two men are fully investigated and prosecuted.
