Target: Tony Clark, Washington County, Tennessee District Attorney General
Goal: Punish man who allegedly left dog for two months to die.
A Tennessee man has been charged with aggravated animal cruelty for improper care of a dying dog. The 12 year-old dog, Tanny, was reportedly left to die in an out building without proper food, water, or care for almost two months. She was found when neighbors heard the dog whining and called the police. Tanny was discovered in such awful shape that she was almost immediately euthanized. Tanny’s owner needs to be prosecuted and punished for his alleged crimes.
Tanny appears to have been left in a building, alone, unable to move or walk; she sat for two months in her own urine and feces. When she was found, her hair was completely matted together and she was terribly emaciated. There was evidence that her owner attempted to feed her, but the food that was left for her was unreachable because of her inability to walk. A healthy dog requires more than just feeding, let alone a sick dog. She did not receive proper care during her sickness and suffered much more than any animal ever should.
It is completely and utterly inhumane to leave a sick and dying dog alone, without adequate food or water. If crimes like these were committed against a human the repercussions would be immense. Tanny deserves justice for being left to die for almost two months.
Sign this petition to ensure the punishment of the man accused of leaving Tanny for dead.
Dear Mr. Clark,
A man was recently arrested for allegedly leaving a dog to suffer in isolation for almost two months. The dog, Tanny, was apparently left in a building, unable to move and lying in her own urine and feces. She was not given adequate food or water, and was left alone while becoming more sick every day. No animal deserves this kind of treatment. Because of this man’s alleged actions, Tanny suffered for two months before finally being euthanized.
We must ensure this man is held responsible for his alleged neglect of Tanny, as well as hope this never happens again. Animals are living, feeling creatures, just like human beings. If a human were treated in this way there would be outrage. Use your power to ensure justice for Tanny and treat this as though it were a crime committed towards a human being. No animal deserves to be treated this way, especially in a time of sickness.
