Target: William Smith, Lake Worth Police Chief
Goal: Punish woman who allegedly posed as a veterinarian and cut a puppy’s ears off to the maximum extent.
A woman is accused of pretending to be a veterinarian and cutting a puppy’s ears off. Natalie Nunez, the dog’s owner, claims that after she purchased the pit bull puppy, named King, she was told to visit veterinarian Brandi Seipe. Nunez says that she was told she couldn’t be there during the procedure. She still paid the $80 bill to have her poor puppy’s ears cut, but when King was in pain for several days, she took him to another veterinarian who was horrified at the results. King’s ears had been sewn up with fishing line and the cartilage was visible, the veterinarian said.
The 19-year-old Seipe is accused of being a fake veterinarian and has been charged with animal cruelty and unlicensed veterinarian practice. If convicted, Seipe could face up to five years in jail, but five years isn’t enough to bring this poor puppy justice. This animal is maimed for life and there’s no telling how much physical and psychological damage he’s been forced to endure.
Brutally cutting a puppy’s ears off for no reason is purely sadistic and, if the charges are true, the accused would pose an enormous risk to society. If Seipe is shown to be guilty and only a minor penalty is given, innocent lives will undoubtedly be put in danger by this woman in the future, yet it’s unlikely that she’ll receive a lengthy sentence, if any. There isn’t much justice when it comes to cruelty to animals, which is exactly why so many abusers go on to repeat their crimes.
It’s up to us to protect these voiceless beings. Seipe should receive the maximum sentence possible as well as a lifetime ban from having contact with animals, if guilty. Please sign this petition to demand that the puppy who Seipe allegedly tortured and maimed receives nothing less than that.
Dear Chief Smith,
A puppy’s ears were allegedly cut off by a woman pretending to be a veterinarian. Brandi Siepe allegedly told the puppy’s owner that she couldn’t be present during the procedure, then after cutting the young dog’s ears off she sewed them up with fishing line. According to a veterinarian who saw the puppy after the botched procedure, the cuts were so bad that cartilage was visible.
This was apparently done with purely evil, sadistic intentions. Please don’t ignore the fact that people who commit crimes like these usually go on to harm or kill more innocent creatures. This helpless animal deserves justice for being maimed indefinitely, but unless the dog’s abuser is given the maximum penalty, justice will not be served. We ask that you please see to it that the abuser receives nothing less than the harshest penalty and a lifetime ban from having contact with animals, if guilty.
