Stop Allowing Animal Abusers to Go Unpunished

Target: Tim Wright, District Attorney of Delaware County, Oklahoma

Goal: Stop allowing animal cruelty to go unpunished.

Two couples were facing multiple animal cruelty charges for allegedly abusing and neglecting their dogs, but the district attorney says they’ve decided to dismiss all the charges. The animals were seized after investigations, but the justice system has even gone so far as to put most of them right back under the care of the owners. One of the couples faced 10 felony counts of cruelty to animals and the second couple had six animal cruelty charges, and both were high-profile cases.

It seems the justice system has completely failed these poor animals. Not only did the owners go completely unpunished, but they’ll also be getting to keep the animals. The reason all charges were dismissed in both cases, according to District Attorney Kenny Wright, was due to a search warrant affidavit issue. A spokesperson for one of the animal rescue groups that assisted in both investigations says she’s disappointed in Wright’s decision to drop all the charges. Please sign this petition to demand that the justice system start punishing the people who commit cruelty to animals and stop rewarding them.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Wright,

The sheriff’s department, along with multiple animal rescue agencies investigated two cases of animal cruelty and neglect. The dogs were seized in both cases, and the owners were charged with multiple felony animal cruelty and neglect charges.

The two high-profile animal cruelty cases were completely dismissed, and the felony charges dropped in what appears to be a terrible case of injustice. According to reports, the owners have even been given their dogs back. It seems these were legitimate cases of animal cruelty and we’re appalled that the justice system would show such little care for the lives of animals. We demand that animal cruelty be punished instead of rewarded.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Sick bastard’s sick judgement!?

    • Weak judges, weak Law. Punishments should be severe otherwise there is no deterrent to would be animal abusers. It’s just as weak in the UK, paltry fines and a slap on the wrist. Hang the perpetrators in public, the best deterrent. The law makers haven’t the guts. The next best thing let the punishment fit the crime where possible. A curse on the lot of them and all those who visit concentration camps for animals (otherwise called zoos) and keep these disgusting places operating.

  2. Kathryn Irby says:

    Any animal abuser is nothing but a Coward, plain and simple!!

  3. GET A REAL JUDGE TO FIGHT FOR WHAT IS RIGHT AT THIS TOWN NOW. MUST STAND UP FOR THE ANIMALS RIGHTS NOW.

  4. Anne Moeller Anne Moeller says:

    these inhumane people need to be punished! Put them in small confinements with OUT food and water for a VERY long time! And move these innocent animals to loving homes!

  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

    • I am vegetarian, i eat eggs from my own backyard hens and eat dairy&milk from a no-slaughter milk farm Nagara Gita Creamery in Pensilvannya. I don’t engage in animal suffering, coz my hens and those cows from that farm are being treated very well.
      It is possible. You don.t have to go vegan, just carefully choose sources of your dairy&eggs. Even no-slaughter caviar exists, but its expensive, though.

    • Also how i should feed cats and help rescue cats if they are obligatory carnivores?
      Human can go vegan, even dog can eat vegan, athough its sub-optimal diet for them, but cats cannot live long on vegan diet. They don’t digest plant protein and they need acidic urine ph to stay healthy. They need meat.

      I read that some Dr. did a study and found even plants know fear

  6. All sadistic and heartless animal torturers and abuser Worldwide must be brought to Justice and jailed or put to death for there vile and heartless torture and abuse of defenceless and innocent sentient beings.
    An eye for an eye the saying goes.
    The punishment must fit the crime that these sadistic and vile animal torturers and abusers commit against the innocent.

    • Katrina Daniel says:

      It would be a great thing if we knew the names and locations of these lovely people. Then everyone could pay their respects to them in their own way.

      • Barbara H. Vinson says:

        I agree. I have actually thought what I’d do if I ever came in contact with some of these sub-human slime bags.

      • Margaret Melnick says:

        Wouldn’t it though. I have also found when they locate murdered animals and they don’t know who did it they never post pictures of the animals. In this day and age of photo knowledge they could take out the cruel parts (that may give animal abusers a thrill) and still post a picture of the animal as it appeared alive giving people who may recognize the animal a chance to call the police and turn the owner in.

  7. Your laws on animal abuse are sadly pathetic. No-one should get away with this sort of behaviour and to let them keep the dogs- that beggars belief! We hear of many disgraceful cases of crime against animals-( who can’t fight for themselves) in oklahoma- are you so backward you don’t think to do anything about it? Certainly doesn’t do your reputation and good! Get on with it-get real and up to date!!

  8. Patricia Dumais says:

    What’s with this judge? Kickback anyone?

  9. Lisa Zarafonetis Lisa Zarafonetis says:

    Signed & shared❗?

  10. Whoever messed up with the search should not have a job anymore!! Now these defenseless animals are right back where they started. Lets put you people that messed up in this predicament instead of the animals..

  11. Barbara H. Vinson says:

    Quite frankly, I have always been suspicious that this was the reality behind the law and animal abusers. This is worse than horrific–it is pure evil, lack of compassion and not doing one’s job on the part of the law. It is considering animals less than humans, which they aren’t. It is letting a commiter of crime get away with it. The law, therefore, doesn’t give a damn, and that’s a crime in itself I think anyone in law who has that attitude should be kicked out of office and go get a job digging ditches. I am sick to death of reading and crying over the fate of animals because the perpetrator is not thrown in jail to sit and rot. Evil rides again. Is that what we want??? It’s bad enough that we have an animal killer as president.

  12. NO PODEMOS SEGUIR PERMITIENDO QUE EL ABUSO HACIA LOS ANIMALES QUEDE IMPUNE, ESTA ACTITUD NEGLIGENTE SÓLO GENERA MÁS VIOLENCIA ENTRE NUESTRAS SOCIEDADES!!!! CUANDO EL CRIMEN ES TAN CRUEL, DEJAR QUE PASE DESAPERCIBIDO Y NO HACER NADA POR DETENERLO, ES FOMENTARLO, YA QUE UN CRIMEN SIN CASTIGO ATRAE OTRO CRIMEN PEOR!!!

  13. This case makes me sick and mad as hell. What is the matter with the DA??? Well, we can all vote them out of office the next time…if u don’t do your job YOU HAVE NO JOB!! CALL THE ANIMAL LEGAL DEFENSE FUND AND SEE IF THEY CAN HELP GET THESE POOR DOGS PROTECTED AND THE OWNERS CHARGED AS THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN.

  14. Here’s where the law is as guilty as the perpetrator. Absolutely despicable and SICK.

  15. PUNISH those bastards banned from owning animals for life those bastards need torched just like what they do animals don’t deserve that these people do all these people that do this should be dead justice do the job u all just the same F**king heartless mongrels.
