Justice for Veteran’s Murdered Animals

Target: Gary Borders, Sheriff Lake County, Florida

Goal: Find and punish two men responsible for injuring and slaughtering dozens of animals.

Four times this year, Florida veteran Josh Curtis has found his animals mutilated and murdered at his home. Most recently, two young men were caught on camera leaving his property. In total, they have killed dozens of chickens, 12 goats, and shot pigs and a dog. The goats have been stabbed repeatedly, and some of the chickens have even been decapitated.

For some, this may seem like just the killing of farm animals, but for Curtis these animals are much more than that. After returning home from the military, he’s been using the animals as therapy animals to make his transition back to civilian life easier. The two young men responsible have yet to be found or identified.

The crimes committed against Josh Curtis and his animals are horrendous. No person, especially one who has served our country, deserves to have animals shot and slaughtered at their home. These two men need to be brought to justice for their actions. Please sign this petition to support the finding of these criminals and bring them to justice for the murder of dozens of animals.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Sheriff Borders,

Throughout the last year, a member of your community has had animals murdered and injured at his home four times. These are not just crimes against Josh Curtis, the owner of the animals, but crimes against the animals themselves, and those responsible need to be brought to justice.

The absence of the animals is not an issue of livelihood for the family, but an issue of survival for Curtis. These were not only pets but therapy animals, helping him after his return home from serving our county. Please do everything in your power as sheriff to find the two men suspected of committing this cruelty, and hold them responsible for their horrendous crimes against the Curtis family and his beloved animals.

Sincerely,

[Your name here]

  1. There is no such thing as “just the killing of farm animals”! Farm animals are NO different than any dog, cat, etc. They are smart, affectionate and social creatures, who experience emotional and physical pain and suffering just like humans.

    In this case they were even more to their caretaker–a war vet who saw these animals as companions and therapy.

    Four different times, Josh Curtis had sadistic psychopaths trespass his home, terrify and slaughter his friends–brutally!

    These subhuman freaks MUST be caught and severely punished! I would hope for many years. There is no room on our planet for these sick evil S.O.B.’s. They are taking oxygen needed by moral human beings.

    These are some of the most dangerous and malicious serial killers, I have ever heard about. Find them and prosecute!!

  2. TAKE THESE KILLERS OUT BACK AND LITE THEM UP WITH SOME LEAD IN THEIR LAME HEADS TILL DEATH NOW FOR JUSTICE TODAY.

  3. Sheriff Borders…please find these wicked men. They will do it again.

  4. Why does this case even need a petition? This is a crime, if not for taking animals’ lives, but for destroying valuable property. Why does something like this happen repeatedly and nothing is done yet?

  5. “So many people insist they are against animal abuse, cruelty, suffering and the inhumane treatment of animals, yet they don’t understand they are actively engaging in and supporting egregious suffering, abuse, cruelty and inhumane treatment when they eat animals and their ‘by-products.’ If you are against cruelty, suffering and inhumane treatment, then you go vegan. It’s just that simple.” – Sarah Kiser

    Is there anyone that could afford to pay for CCTV to be installed for Josh.

  11. I definitely agree — this petition must be edited — “just the killing of farm animals” IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!!
