Punish Man Accused of Burning Dog Alive

Target: Paul J. Gains, Prosecuting Attorney for Mahoning County, Ohio

Goal: Demand justice for dog allegedly burned alive by intoxicated man.

A man has been charged with cruelty to animals and animal torture after allegedly burning a dog alive. Chad Karka of Alliance, Ohio reportedly beat the helpless animal and threw into a fire pit. Prior to this incident, neighbors reported seeing the same dog limping around the yard as if it was injured. Police suspect that drugs or alcohol were involved.

Neighbors that witnessed the gruesome scene say that Karka first put a limp dog onto the fire. The dog then regained consciousness and started to run around the yard, its fur on fire. Karka then reportedly chased the burning and yelping animal around before catching it and throwing it on top of a fire ring. He then hit the dog with a wooden board and placed boxes on top of it to keep it from escaping. When police arrived, the dog was already dead.

Neighbors were horrified, saying that anyone that could act so savagely toward an animal could also turn on a human. So far, it is unknown whether the dog belonged to Karka or if it was someone else’s pet.

This alleged act displayed malice and deliberate cruelty. In order to ensure that no ore animals are subjected to this torture, it is imperative that Karka is punished harshly and banned from handling animals, if found guilty. Sign the petition below to demand the maximum possible penalty in this case.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Gains,

A dog was recently found dead by police officers who responded to allegations of a man throwing the animal into a fire pit. Neighbors say that he first placed the limp animal onto the fire pit, but it woke up and began to run around the yard, its fur alight. Witnesses allege that the man then chased the dog around the yard before catching it, beating it on the head with a wooden plank, and putting it back into the fire. He then allegedly placed objects on top of the dog so that it could not escape again.

This type of blatant and deliberate cruelty is shocking and must be punished harshly. We, the undersigned, ask that you seek to punish the person responsible for this gruesome crime to the fullest extent of the law.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. ALLIANCE, OH (WOIO) –

    Chad Karka, the Alliance man accused of burning a cat alive in a fire pit in the backyard of his home, appeared in court Friday.

    Karka previously pleaded not guilty to the Jan. 20 crime. He remains out on bond.

    Karka is charged with cruelty and torture to animals under Goddard’s Law.

    He was ordered not to have any contact with animals and told he must attend one AA meeting per day.

    His case was bound over to the Stark County Grand Jury.

  2. Somebody please just kill this bastard!!!

  3. Caryl Sawyer says:

    Have been given the impression by those in the legal field that Ohio’s prosecutors consider animal abuse cases beneath them so we can not expect much from this prosecutor.

  4. This idiot needs to be put in jail indefinitely….When is the law going to start doing the right thing and really protect society and animals? If he had of been put into jail (forever) after he burned the poor cat, then this poor dog would not have suffered at least.
    It is just wrong to not lock this bastard away for life!

  5. Tina shurtleff says:

    They won’t do anything until
    He burns a child alive. Call the Gov office. Tell them we hate animal cruelty. Tell him he better watch out because we are going to elect pro animal candidates

  6. I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT THE NEIGHBORS KNEW AND PROBABLY WATCHED THIS COWARD HARM THE POOR DOG, THEY DID NOTHING TO TRY TO MAKE THIS BASTARD STOP. HOPEFULLY WHEN THE SON OF A BITCH GETS OUT SOMEONE WILL DO THE SAME TO HIM.

  7. Jaime Perez says:

    I agree with Eva, why didn’t the neighbors do anything to help the dog?? They are just as guilty and cruel hearted. But this freaking pos needs to have the same treatment done to him!

  8. Lilian Caughlin says:

    why would anybody with a conscience allow a cretin like that to remain in society. Sorry but I would have intervened in a situation like that. Maybe distracted (or worse) that POS to get the dog away. This is unbelievable.
    Why is Ohio so backwards in regards to animal welfare?
