Prosecute Man Accused of Killing Donkey and Beating Girlfriend

Target: John Espar, Prosecuting Attorney of LaPorte County, Indiana

Goal: Seek the harshest possible penalty for man who allegedly shot a donkey after assaulting his girlfriend.

A man reportedly shot a pet donkey, named Jack, in the head in an attempt to threaten his girlfriend, who he’d also allegedly beat. The donkey was found bleeding profusely from the head after police heard an animal in distress on the property. The poor animal was still alive, suffering from a gunshot wound near the eye, but died before medical help could arrive. Not only was Jack, the innocent donkey, killed for no reason, but he also had to suffer slowly until every ounce of life left his body. All because, police believe, the man wanted to threaten and intimidate his girlfriend.

Olvydas Abromavieius, who police say had a blood alcohol level of .3 percent at the time of arrest, was charged with domestic battery and domestic violence animal cruelty. Violence of this nature and severity is rarely limited to isolated incidents. Too often, we see cases of violence end with the victims being murdered. An innocent animal has already been heinously sacrificed and killed in cold blood. If Mr. Abromavieius doesn’t receive the appropriate penalty for these allegedly senseless violent crimes, the victim and other animals will be at even greater risk. That’s why it’s imperative that we petition the authorities, urging them to see to it that this man is punished to the maximum extent, if guilty.


Dear Mr. Espar,

A man allegedly shot a pet donkey during a domestic dispute with his girlfriend, who he also reportedly assaulted. Mr. Olvydas Abromavieius was charged with domestic battery and domestic violence animal cruelty when police arrived and heard an animal in distress. Officers say they found the poor donkey bleeding profusely from the head, still alive before it bled out. This innocent animal was murdered in cold blood for no reason except to add to the torment of the other victim, the suspect’s girlfriend.

Violent abuse and animal cruelty like this doesn’t typically end unless authorities are willing to go to the extent necessary to prevent the offender from being able to hurt more innocent animals and people. We’re calling on you to help make an effort to end domestic violence and animal cruelty before more innocent lives are stolen. With that said, we are urging you to seek the harshest possible penalty for the man who allegedly committed these senseless, violent crimes, if guilty.

  1. These type of cruel, violent & vicious scumbags must be locked up for a lengthy period to understand and realize the gravity of their Criminal act. Such cruel people should not be allowed to walk the streets with the rest of the citizens either. Punish this evil man to the fullest..


  3. I would personally love to torture this PIECE OF ROTTEN UGLY DISGUSTING FILTH so that he suffers excruciating pain. Medieval would be the way I’d go. Then after I think he suffered enough or I got too bored at watching him squirm like the coward he is, I would shoot him in his UGLY FACE!

  4. This appalling bully has earned himself punishment to put him out of circulation for a long time so he can think about what he has done. He is a mindless thug who does not deserve to walk the streets with decent folk. Do you have the death penalty? if not, pity. You have a filthy piece of lowlife on your hands- do your worst.

    • “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

  5. “The only difference between a dog, cat, horse and dolphin and a cow, chicken, pig and turkey is perception. One is no more valuable than another. And yet in this culture, we hold the former animals in high esteem and the latter we brutalize for food. All animals are deserving of respect and freedom from violence. The way to respect others is veganism.”

    • Excellent comment. All animals deserve our respect.

    • Unfortunately, in some Far Eastern countries – China, Korea for example, they also brutally murder dogs and cats..the Chinese Yulin Dog Meat “Festival” is one – hardly a festival for the poor brutally murdered pups! [There are several charities working to eradicate this, however]. Brutality meted out on any animal is unacceptable – I think we’re all agreed on that. What is frightening though is that people who injure/torture/murder animals can run out of their “thrills” and have to move up the animal ladder – to human beings. This donkey-murderer needs a serious period of incarceration – preferably with animal-loving members of the “Underworld” who might be inclined to give this specimen some lessons in how to treat other living creatures appropriately.

  6. Shot that bastard and bash him and let him die hang the idiot. Give justice now.

  7. Caryl Sawyer says:

    Any prosecutor worth the name will know this person is a continuing danger to any community where he lives. This is only the beginning for this criminal.

  8. Get this asshole off the streets and make him pay for what he did to this innocent animal and his girlfriend. And when I say make him pay I mean throw his ass in jail and throw away the key and let the big men take care of him. He deserves nothing less than being raped by some big ass men!!!

  9. DEBY NIETO says:


  10. Lets hope Mr. Trump will add harsher laws to punishment female & animal killers! Not just sitting in prison but make them work for society for the rest of their useless life!

  11. Lisa Zarafonetis says:

    Another piece of sh!t who needs to burn & rot in hell❗?
    Signed & shared ?

  12. Justin R, I hate to burst your bubble, but your hope that Trump will advance efforts to end animal cruelty will never be realized. Trump’s own sons have in fact hunted and killed endangered wildlife, and continue to do so, helping to bring the species closer to extinction.

    Let’s all pray that these 4 years will pass quickly and by some miracle, efforts to protect these innocent animals will continue to advance.

  13. There is no valid reason why this measly excuse of a man should not be in a cage FOREVER.
