Target: Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office
Goal: Seek maximum possible punishment for man accused of burning a dog to death.
A small dog was reportedly burned alive by the owner’s boyfriend. The body of the dead Shih Tzu was found near a bottle of accelerant. Police say the animal’s dead body was covered in severe burns, an indication of what must’ve been an agonizing death.
Westly Didlake has been charged with killing and torturing animals, resisting and obstructing police, and abandonment resulting in the death of an animal. The 27-year-old man is scheduled to have a probable cause conference and a preliminary hearing soon. Unfortunately, this alleged animal torturer was recently arraigned and allowed to post bond.
There will be nothing preventing this person from torturing and killing more helpless animals unless enough people stand up for them. That’s why it’s imperative that we start putting pressure on officials immediately. Sign this petition to demand that animals be protected from this allegedly violent dog killer and that he be brought to justice, if found guilty.
Westly Didlake was charged with killing and torturing animals after allegedly setting a small dog, belonging to his girlfriend, on fire. The animal’s body was severely burned and found next to a bottle of accelerant, according to reports.
Tormenting helpless animals to death rarely stops with one isolated incident, and if he isn’t punished, more lives will be in danger. We urge you to see to it that he receives the maximum possible penalty and a permanent ban from owning animals, if found guilty.
